  1. Starting the trip: Leipzig to Zurich

    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!

  4. European Delivery in Leipzig: Driving the Corkscrew

    It is 8:15 in the morning, and punctually, we are being met by our contact from Porsche Leipzig in the hotel lobby of the Steigenberger hotel. My wife and I were both up early and ready to go after a night of restlessness caused by the invigorating excitement of anticipation and a tiring jetlag. Fortunately for us, the excitement was winning for the day.
