Yesterday we had the chance to visit the International Autoshow (IAA) in Frankfurt. It was the first time my husband Stefan and I got to see our new road trip vehicle: The Land Rover Defender 110 Limited Edition. It was quite a treat. We can’t wait to take possession of the car and we have started planning the first two major road trips with the new truck.

Our first road trip will lead us to Italy, where we want to spend 2 weeks traveling and discovering the best the country has to offer. We hope to go on this trip near the end of the year, although there are still a few logistical issues to work out which might jeopardize this trip.

The second trip is schedule to take place during the summer of 2006 and will involve circumnavigating the Baltic see. Stefan and I are looking forward to driving close to 10,000km (6,000 miles) in 21 days, Visiting the Baltic states and Scandinavia.

The Defender is scheduled to be delivered at the beginning of October and will require a few small projects until we have the vehicle we need for future trips.
