Respect for veterans…

Well, I do have a soft spot for older cars. They are often proud relics of ancient times, appealing to my poetic soul J. When I saw this old veteran casually parked in the back of a dead ugly truck, my heart was bleeding. Here is the ancestor of 4×4, survivor of the landing @ …

The longest day

We were invited by the Vespa club de France (thanks mister Reine!) to showcase our Bluetooth enabled fleet on the docks of Quillebeuf sur Seine on the 14th of July.  Parrots MG TF, and both the Lotus and the LaRo Lightweight featured alongside vintage Vespas and a plethora of French classic cars. Thousands of people took …

Amerigo Vespucci: stately elegance

In my eyes, the most beautiful sailing ship in Rouen is the Amerigo Vespucci, a tall ship of the Marina Militare, named after the famous  explorer Amerigo Vespucci.  She was put into service in 1928 and was used by the Italian Navy until 1943. She is used as a training ship ever since.

Felix is a daring mud devil

Well, when you give a new toy in our hands, we want to try it, test it out. So we took Felix our Bluetooth enabled LaRo Lightweight into the Normandy forests. Simple mission: go and dive it into the muddy roads till it gets stuck. Yep, that way we could check out our 24 volt …

Tall Ship Race: l’Armada

Some of the most beautiful sailing ships in the world are gathered in Rouen this week. We are hopping in and out the crowds with our three cars, but we cannot help walking in awe amidst these queens of the sea. Miles and miles of sail, marines, and telltale odours. Boyish sailing songs. Shiny cupper. …

The cutest…

The cutest ambassador for Bluetooth wireless technology on this trip is without any shadow of doubt young Leon Nolf.  He walked around with his fancy, ear-protecting Bluetooth enabled headphones (from MSA Sordin)  for days… stealing many many hearts. Le coquin… J

Aberdeen – Le Mans

Luckily Stefaan was able to get the wipers going again, so moral went up. We met lots of beautiful cars on the road. A classic rally Aberdeen to Le Mans featured Jaguars, Lotus, Aston Martins, etc. But ours do not look bad either!

The Road to hell…

Rain, rain, rain… 200 klicks of pouring. Nothing but water. Ideal when you are driving three convertibles.  One of them (the one I’m driving L) thought this would be an ideal moment to shut down  the screen wipers. Can’t see. A Thing. 200 klicks to go. Who came up with this idea any way?

Getting older…

I love this fast moving way of life. I love my job. Stress, mobility, encounters, travel, deadlines… it makes a big part of my clock tick. I guess I am just not made for the slow lane.  The pedal to the metal, and then relax with family, friends and loved ones. From time to time …

No words

This week, I am visiting the Bluetooth All Hands meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. Every time I come to this desert state, I get under its spell. Endless blue skies, burning sun, the real-cowboy-cactus, the wild hills. Just sitting here on my balcony and sucking in the vast scenery makes me very happy. Maybe I am …
