Volkswagen




I got my first car, a Volkswagen, when I was twenty years old. The car itself was eleven.



After two years I got this red one, I drove it for ten years, I'm still missing it!


This one was spotted by my aunt and uncle in Germany.




A few weeks ago Marieken and I visited The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven.
One of the artworks was this Volkswagen Beetle, created by Surasi Kusolwong



In the car you can watch a little movie.

  13. I am a bug girl too..although not the new ones so much. My parents tell stories of taking me through Tanzania as a baby in a bathtub on the back seat of a volkswagon bug. That was my çrib' and seat all at once. I love these photos of yours.

  14. I love your old bug! I have nostalgia for them too. My parents had a red one when I was first born and drove across the U.S. to California with me in the backseat (they turned it into a baby bed). I think there are lots of these kinds of stories about bugs that people think of fondly :)
