Some photos of my road trip. First stop: Annecy.

The photos will tell you all: 

The weather was not fine on the first day, to say the least. 

The Alpine was tops on such a quite long distance ( 550 Kilometers ). 

The old town is charming. A few first pictures, but I will explain later why it is called " the French Venice ".

The famous lake, majestuous.

We made a friend, here:



Nice! Did you remember to bring an umbrella?

And where are the pictures of the speedometer and temperature gauge in the Alpine?

I'm thinking like this, so we can see if it was a warm summer rain...


109 😅

The cockpit of your car remembers me what i see as i drive my car.

The speedo and the green flower, that’s Honda.

Your Alpine have a great dash.

I will try to post some photos of the dashboard.

Well, I will try to take some, but it is much different than with the P1800.

Picturesque village.

I've been there last October.
Same weather, a bit colder I suppose smile

Lovely town, but your Alpine is looking gorgeous!

Annecy was a quick pit stop for me on my way from Geneva to Lyon. Would love to spend a full day or two there! Enjoy!

There are enough places to visit for two days, indeed.

Beautiful car,

And the village, and the lake, and... Everything!

The old town is really something.

I've never been to Annecy...

 By: blau : July 5th, 2021-18:16
but one of my favorite films takes place there: Eric Rohmer's 'Le Genou de Claire'. One day I'll make it there!

Wow, you know your Classics.

You really get to know a car ...

when you take it on a good road trip. 

When your phone slips down the side of the seat, your powdered sugar donut makes the wheel all sticky, and

 By: cazalea : July 5th, 2021-18:38
God Forbid, your carton of chocolate milk tumbles over into the front seat upholstery (preferably velour), 
 summer racing tires make driving in the rain a terror, you are in a strange city, 
you know your parking meter is about to expire and your car is just around the block, but the block is like a Mobius strip -- it doesn't have another side! 

 (insert your own tales of Happy Eater, Péage services, Swiss road tax, bad weather, wild animal stories, etc as appropriate) 


LOL, what a scenario.

Try getting sweet and sour sauce ...

Out of your passenger carpet 😱

You reminded me!

About a week after we bought our newer Elan, my wife bought a beverage at the 7-11 on her way home from someplace. 
As Lotuses rightfully don't have any cupholders, she propped up the gigantic cup on the seat. I think it was a Super Big Gulp

Or it might have been a Bring-Your-Own-Cup-Day Slurpee

Anyway, on the first stop light it tumbled into the footwell, saturating the carpet with 32 ounces or more of sticky sweet soft drink and ice. She came home in tears and we almost came to blows. I admit saying some harsh things as I rested my elbows on the spongy carpet and removed the front seat, the console and the soggy mess -- threw it on the driveway and hosed it out for 15 minutes... and I made her help

Curse you 7-11!

That post almost made me spill my cup of tea ...

Luckily i’m not in the car ! 

That's exactly the point.

Hope you have a lot of fun with your Alpine. An Alpine in the Alps

 By: brauner : July 5th, 2021-19:16

That's the way to go, indeed.

 By: amanico : July 5th, 2021-20:08
