Das Auto… VW rocks!

Tasmania is blessed with Australia’s best roads – a grab bag of twisty tarmac, mountain passes and sweeping bends…

For those that don’t know I drive a VW. A small SUV of kinds, the Tiguan. A hot little car that is superb on the juice, which is good for the wallet.
I often get people asking me about the car, this week alone two people have wanted to chat. My response? “Get yourself out there and buy one”. Well, not quite, but I am definitely a convert and have nothing but praise for this car.
Since we bought the car off the showroom floor we get numerous extras. Like the Das Auto magazine that arrived this morning.
I finally get to open it and there inside is an article on road tripping Tassie (in a Golf mind you, but whatever) so I read on and like what it has to say.

The Pacific is vast and still at my left shoulder, ….directing me south.

….Tasmania, on the other hand, has almost the same shock of the uninhabited, but it’s better. Rolling hills separated from stunning bays….

To the finale..

…Tasmania is a driving opportunity seized. The scenery is magnificent. The roads are perfect. Drive it in a (Golf gti) and you’ll have the time of your life….but here on the Apple Isle it’s mission accomplished.

Love Tassie, love our scenery and where the road takes you.
If you ever get a chance, you have come and experience it.

  1. Haven’t been to Tassie in close to 40 years, but I still remember how beautiful it was. Three of us hired a … caravan truck? It was like an old fashioned delivery van that had been converted into a comfy caravan inside. Anyway, we drove down the east coast and then up the west coast for a week, and I still remember it as one of the best weeks of my life. πŸ™‚


    • That sounds like an awesome week! Not much has changed really, sure cities are bigger and there are more people, but the scenery is still as maniacal as ever.
      The east coast is almost a classic beauty while the west has it’s rugged desolate beauty. Both equally as stunning.
      You definitely have to come back some time, soon.


  2. Okay, that’s a cool car. What color do you have?
