In a few days my wife and I will be completing our third European delivery in the last four years. We have been blessed to have the good fortune to complete these trips and consider ourselves more than lucky.
Joining us on this trip will be some close friends who will be completing their first trip, and needless to say they are excited beyond all belief. We arranged these cars through the dealership I have used in the past and once again Joe at Wide World of Cars, (BimmerFile.com is NOT associated with any dealers in the BMWNA network) made things as painless as possible with everything as described. We can never thank him enough for his time and service, since as many of you can imagine dealing with me and a car purchase more often than not can be frustrating for the person in the other side of the table (not so with Joe).
On this trip we will be taking in Oktoberfest for the first time, all the bier and festivities that it entail are certainly going to be entertaining to say the least. This will also be our first time visiting Prague which from what we have read and heard from others is nothing but a jewel of architecture and history. The roads and safety of the cars in Prague are a bit of a concern but we have secured some underground parking so things should be fine.
Our past deliveries were completed at the old delivery center so this will also be our first trip to the Welt. We had watch the construction process over our trips and the shear enormity of the structure then was something to behold so I can only imagine what the completed building looks like in person.
Right now the itinerary is fairly stark in terms of seeing BMW attractions as we have done factory tours in the past and the rest of that, but we would like to see the museum. This is up for debate as depending on our Oktoberfest ambitions and desire to take a romp in the Alps once more, time may be short for a museum trip. It is a toss up between driving the amazing twisties or visiting the “Cooperstown ” of BMW, we shall see what we are feeling!
I am working on completing several interesting stories for all of our readers during the week and of course there will be a ton of pictures and a full recap of things when we return, so stay tuned!
