Norway in a Nutshell

June 27th, 2015 on 07:51

Spontaneous ideas are the best, and this one will be no exception :) and it is called Norway in a Nutshell! Booked only yesterday afternoon, is a trip through some of Norway’s most beautiful fjord scenery! Obviously the idea started off with the Tesla needing a road trip :) and from one thing came another. Two days to experience the scenic Bergen Railway, the breathtaking Flåm Railway, the Aurlandsfjord, the narrow Nærøyfjord and the steep hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva, and…the weather is fantastic!!

Looking forward woohooooo!!

Byebye LEAF, hellooo Model S! :)

June 24th, 2015 on 23:59

After nearly 3,5 years of ‘electrifying your car‘, that game is changing, BIG time: byebye Nissan LEAF, hellooo Tesla Model S!! Woohoo! :)

My LEAF experience has been amazing, it is a fantastic drive with really only one downside; the range. The advertised 175km seems reacheable only on a warm summer day while driving a whopping 20km/h :) , the actual range is more like 125-140km in summertime and about 80-100km in wintertime (both heavily depending on the use of the climate control)…not enough for me.

The Tesla Model S is really a BIG step up, a game changer in the car industry (car 2.0), a change of the concept of owning/driving a car! Besides the looks (great design), many elements in the car are software based which makes it possibly (&easy) to upgrade the car with a software update; a nice example is the recent update giving the owners more horsepower to play with (!)…it is like owning a whole new car overnight! :)

The first kilometers have been truly amazing and something tells me that this car will not stop to amaze me…so, to be continued! :)

Hmm, winter is long long gone, summer officially started two days ago, today is Sankthansaften (Midsummer) and my blog still showed a beautiful winter wonderland photo…huh?! About time to replace it by something more appropriate for the season!

Seasons change the way nature presents itself to us, and so the Lysdammen lake turned from the awesome winter wonderland landscape to a lovely ‘green-trees-around-a-lake-on-a-warm-summer-day’ place I love to be. Both are beautiful in their own way, yet for now I’d say; sun, don’t hold back and take your reserved spot, you’re more than welcome and please stay for a few months! :)
