Can I just say how much I love my Fiat? It’s the best thing I’ve ever owned, ever. I have so much fun driving it, even if it’s just to run errands. Yesterday we drove up to Tahoe to drop my brother off, and even though it was the worst weekend to drive up to Tahoe because of the holiday, I had an awesome time driving it around the twists and turns of the road–especially around Emerald Bay. I couldn’t find a good map to show off how twisty it is, but these pictures show how tight the corners are and how there are essentially no railings.
Driving a blue Fiat around Lake Tahoe is now my favorite hobby. I would live in Tahoe in a heartbeat, but my boyfriend is happier here in Reno. Maybe some day…
But it got me thinking about where else I’d love to drive my Fiat. The car’s Sport mode makes it great for lots of corners, but it’s also fun to amp up the speed and just fly along the highway. I like roads that require me to be an active driver, but also allow me to soak in the scenery.
The Dolomites – Swiss Alps
This photo by David Pasztor is breathtaking! I went to Italy as a teen but would love to return and explore the many amazing routes throughout the Dolomites.
Reno to Vegas – Nevada
In a couple weekends, we’re driving down to Vegas. I’ve made this ride before but never as the driver, and of course, never with a super awesome car. I’m so excited to just drive along the state. It’s a pretty flat and deserted drive but I find it very relaxing and it’s a great opportunity to see a lot of the state, including some of the smaller towns and ghost towns.
Highway 1 Big Sur – California
Driving along the ocean sounds dreamy. This is by far one of the most beautiful places in California.
Denali Highway – Alaska
I’ve never been to Alaska but it’s high on my list of places to visit. Any open, mountainous road sounds appealing to me! This is a gravely road so I would consider taking an off-road car instead.
Pikes Peak Highway – Colorado
This looks like an interesting route, especially with the snow and the unique pattern of the road. This looks like it would also be a good route for an off-road car.
Although this is a Mini ad (and it features my favorite singer Michelle Branch), this video sums up how I feel all the time! I love the ending where she is driving around Milan because that looks so pretty–and it reminds me a lot of the drive in Tahoe.
