    Continued from Part 1....

    Fluelapass - Zernez - Ofenpass

    After winding our way through the afternoon traffic in Davos, we headed out road #28 towards the Fluela pass. Since it was late October, the pass roads were only lightly travelled, thus perfect for the goal of our roadtrip: To enjoy driving the car through the curves and mountains! Of course we took stops to take pictures of both the landscape and the car and often combined. I also wished we had more time to do ...

    It's Tuesday, and we are finally heading into the alps!

    Although it is always great to see family and friends and we wished we could have stayed longer, it was finally time to travel on. Our goal for today was Meran (or Merano) in the South Tirol region of Italy, where we booked two nights at the Hotel Sittnerhof based on a friend's recommendation who recently decided to retire there.

  3. Visiting Friends and Family in Zurich: Driving Ricken-Schwaegalp

    Over the next two days, we visited friends and family in and around Zurich. We of course took the opportunities to explore some of the local areas and let some of the family members experience and enjoy the car!

    My step-brother's sons had a lot of fun being driven around, and my step-brother, a former BMW Z3M, Ferrari 360 Spider and current BWM M3 driver had a great time driving the car.

    First let me apologize for the delay in writing the sequels. But we were having too much fun driving and did not have time to write long stories

    As mentioned in the itinerary posting, we were planning to drive the longest distance (over 500 miles/800km!) the first day: From Leipzig to my hometown in Zurich, Switzerland!

  5. The first road trip: Leipzig - Merseburg - Leipzig

    by , 10-23-2012 at 06:08 PM (The adventures of the RY 981S)
    Right after finishing the visit to the Porsche center, we took some more pictures and started to drive. Since the weather was beautiful and warm, we decided to keep the roof down and just drive until we see somewhere to go.
