Enrico, Gladys and the bambini hired a car yesterday and drove up to Lübeck yesterday, a very old Hanseatic port city on the Baltic Sea. We got a Mercedes people mover, a Vigo. A mini van, we’d call it, but it seats nine.
Well, gentle readers, as we all know, there is no speed limit on the autobahn. But I couldn’t get this damn thing to do more than 160 klicks. People were zooming past me in Toyotas and Golfs like I was standing still. I think they must put a governor on it.
We also drove over the Travemünde to go the beach. It was a spectacular day, very warm, sunny, and the bay was choked with sailboats. Some kind of international sailing competition was going on.
Some day I am going to terrorize the autobahn at speeds reaching 240 klicks. Guess it will have to wait for a trip without die kinder.
