Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

If any of you guys read Car Magazine you would have seen a picture, a small one, of the dear Kia Rio proudly waving the Norwegian flag while waiting to cross the flooded highway. June issue, page 50. Magnifying glass advisable. Per How the hell did you know you'd be in the magazine? I love that you...

Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

If there's anyone still out there? Couple of "amusing" episodes from the trip. After Europcar failed to pick us up at the airport we found that they're "airport location" was opposite said airport, and that we had to cross an 8-lane highway, and a two lane feederway via a bridge....

Five hour drive from Ica to Lima because damned Europcar could not give us an adress that could be used on the GPS. Ever tried driving in Lima? Total f***ing madness.

12 months quarantine for Norwegian then. One remembers the introduction of the Screamliner. Shudder. Per Pantyliner? Nightmareliner? Ol' Sparky? That's the one, also known as Eyeliner.
