  1. Since I left on 16th I had been to a town in Germany and then to Venice. Haven't got a chance to post much because these 2 places I went to the internet is horrendous both wifi in hotel and 3/4G. Now I really appreciate being in Bangkok and Singapore where the internet is easily available and fast too. I just arrived in Florence and is able to upload most of the stuff so I could post better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5zcD2vzSjI Immediately after arriving in Munich Airport, was whisked off to a small city/town of 18,000 people at the Austrian border. Drove about 1.5 hours.
  2. https://mothership.sg/2019/08/singapore-couple-travel-europe-van/ Traveling to Europe in a van. I wonder if they are bringing spares, engine oil, spare parts etc etc etc. While a jap van is easy to service in this part of asia, it may not be common where they are going.
  3. A group of the world’s richest soccer clubs, including Manchester United and Real Madrid, announced plans for a European breakaway league starting in August, a project that could herald the sport’s biggest shakeup in decades and make elite teams even wealthier. The marquee names -- six from England, three from Italy and three from Spain have signed up so far -- would play each other midweek as an alternative to the prestigious UEFA Champions League, according to a statement early Monday. In addition to what will be 15 permanent teams, another five will qualify each year for the so-called
  4. Going to Europe for a road trip? Then you might want to go into Northern Portugal for a drive as Ford thinks that it is the best driving road. With the help of senior journalist Steve Sutcliffe and the latest 276bhp Focus ST, Ford has presented to us ten of the best driving roads in Europe with the winning road called N304 that cuts into the Parque Natural do Alvao region It scores nearly full marks across multiple categories such as Thrill Factor, Hospitality, Scenery and Food and Drinks. “In three days of filming, we barely saw twenty other cars on it,” said Sut
  5. We have decided to fly back to paris after many years of not visiting western Europe. First country we visited though was Switzerland. Playing with snow outside our hotel
  6. Just finished a three week vacation so starting to edit my pics.... The daylight time is so long that I am unable to catch any night shots or even golden hour shots....
  7. I went on a road trip to Germany, Austria and Switzerland last December and thought I would share some photos with you guys. I booked a full size manual (3 series or similar) with Hertz but when I went to collect the car it was an Opel Insignia Stationwagen diesel instead. To be fair to Hertz during the booking process I specified I wanted a diesel as I would be travelling long distances and diesel is cheaper. When I went to collect the car in Germany they said that there were no more diesels available except the Insignia (wonder if it's true?). I was anticipating to drive the 3 series or may

  9. Hei Hei! Greetings from the land of the never-ending sun! Just sharing some tips, info and photos of my current trip :) Some basic info first: Helsinki Helsinki; Swedish: Helsingfors, is the capital and largest city of Finland. It is in the region of Uusimaa, located in southern Finland, on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, an arm of the Baltic Sea. Helsinki has a population of 605,523, an urban population of 1,159,211 and a metropolitan population of 1,361,506.

  11. Just got back. I will share videos of my recent holiday here. Privileged and blessed to be able to travel and see the world with the family. Awesome trip. For this trip, the plan was to take a cruise out of Genoa, Italy. The problem was that Genoa was pretty hard to get to. So, to get there, we first flew to London, stayed one night, then flew from London Stansted to Genoa via Ryanair, stayed on night in Genoa, then boarded the ship for a 7N cruise covering ports like Civitavecchia (for Rome), Palermo, Malta, Marseilles, Barcelona (not in that order). On disembarkation day, we took Britis
  12. Hi bro and sis.. i know this is odd but any one of you guys travelling to Europe or UK this week and coming back in a week time? I was on outstation and had bought a few things for my wife. Unfortunately my luggage was delay and caused me to wait at the counter for nearly an hour. Due to that i could not go to the custom section to get my receipts stamp. If any of you could help do pm me and will gladly do my best to work out something for your kind gesture. Just need your help to get the receipts stamps before you leave any of the EU countries excluding Switzerland. Thank you

  14. While it is always better late than sorry, Europe has finally decided to join United States and Canada in making ESP (Electronic Stability Program) a mandatory feature in all cars that are on sale come 1st November. Any light goods vehicle that are under 3,500kg are to be sold with ESP as standard too. This is excellent news according to Bosch, who is the market leader for ESP systems in the automotive industry because the company claims to have saved an estimated 6,000 lives and 190,000 accidents since the ESP’s introduction. While the numbers might seem exaggerated, we should not doubt t
  15. Any advice how to manage the dataroaming costs for the following scenario? 12 day Europe escorted tour involving Holland, Belgium, Paris. Family of 3 Iphones, Was thinking of using 1 Singtel card with Dataroam activated inside 1 mobile wifi router. 3 Iphones will connect to the mobile wifi. Therefore cost limited to $15 a day, but if morning in 1 country, and afternoon in another, then doubled. However, I have to make sure the SINGTEL NETWORK LOCK is activated at all times? Any cheaper or more efficient option?
  16. I believe owning a Lamborghini is surely a proud thing for pretty much everyone in the world. When you drive a car like the Aventador, for example, passers-by will most likely think that you're one hell of a successful person - besides the natural jealousy that follows after. It seems not everyone can contain their 'feelings' when they come across such successful people. The cyclist in the video is perhaps a good example. While the driver of the black Lamborghini Aventador is trying to pass the road, this cyclist simply stops right in front of the car. Even worse, the cyclist stares
  17. Chevrolet has confirmed it will stop selling cars across Europe at the end of 2015. The announcement came days after GM CEO Dan Akerson expressed his wish to put more distance between Germany-based Opel and the Bowtie brand. When the brand was launched in Europe in 2005, it focused on selling low-cost cars that were a little more than just rebadged, South Korean-built Daewoos. The business model was not popular and the company was hit hard by the economic crisis in Europe few years ago. Chevrolet tried to move upmarket and woo European buyers by focusing on its American heritage, but

  19. Renault has unveiled their new 1.6-litre F1 engine at the 2013 Paris Air Show. The direct-injected V6 unit is equipped with an exhaust-driven turbocharger, two motor generator units (MGUs) with an Energy Recovery System (ERS). For reader's information, come 2014, the current 2.4-litre V8 engines which rev to a maximum of 18,000rpm will be replaced by 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged power units revving to a maximum of 15,000rpm. The MGUs are capable of producing 160bhp while the turbocharged 1.6-litre V6 churns out approximately 600bhp, bringing the combined output to roughly 760bhp. A
  20. While cars and automobiles can be considered a hobby turned obsession, films have always been a more passion-driven interest for me. I wanted to become a cinematographer but decided against it due to personal reasons, and somehow ended up with a job within the automotive industry. I'm not complaining though. Occasionally a movie blends the best of both worlds - like Fast and the Furious or Death Race. And then there is the movie Rush, where it is a cocktail of three of my favourite interests cinema, cars and Formula One. Seldom have you walked out of a movie theatre
  21. Toyota has released more details on the all new Corolla destined for the European market. Not only does the car look more sophisticated than the current model, it grew in all dimensions with a measurement of 4,620mm by 1,775mm by 1,465mm (L x W x H). The car is longer than the all new Mazda 3 sedan. The Euro-spec Corolla will be available with one diesel and four petrol engines. The 1.4-litre turbo diesel develops 89bhp with a peak torque of 205Nm. Transmission option for the oil-burner include a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed Multi-Mode transmission. The entry-level ga
  22. I am sure most of us reading this love the Lamborghini Gallardo in a way or two. The owner of this particular Gallardo probably thought that loving it means turning it into one of the fastest production tuned car on earth. That means having more than 2,000bhp with the help of two huge turbochargers. Yes, that is no typing error. Unfortunately for him, his Underground Racing tuned Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera's V10 burst into flames instantly after crossing the finish line. Luckily for him, he safely got the car down to a standstill and escaped before anything bad happened. As seen
  23. Like Porsche and Lamborghini, Ferrari has the habit of releasing stripped out, track focused models based on their mid-engined supercars. Following the lineage of the F360 Challenge Stradale and the F430 Scuderia, the Prancing Horse has gone all 'Superleggera' on the 458 Italia. Sporting a different front facia, rear end body work, fins protruding before the rear axle and a more flush and slippery body to accommodate the active aerodynamic systems, the V8 equipped 458 Italia that has been given a power bump in a trimmer package of almost 1.3 tonnes. More power, lighter w
  24. With a long standing tradition of building compact, open top sports cars that started with the S600 and ending with the S2000, Honda seems intent to get back into the game. After seeing the success Toyota/Subaru has had with the 86/BRZ, Honda is primed to one-up its rivals. According to a source within Honda, a new affordable sports car is being seriously considered, but don't expect something as high-end as the S2000 - think small, quick and light. The car would be small, probably even smaller than the Mazda MX-5, and come equipped with either a 1.3-litre or 1.5-litre
