Finally Arrived

So we left our houses at 2:00 PM PST to go to the airport and we arrived at our hotel room in Munich 24 hours later at 12:00 AM GST. Our flight to from London to Munich was first delayed, then cancelled then we were moved to another flight. So we made the most of it while at Heathrow.

More to come!

Ring-Taxi in the Bag

So a bit of good news arrived in the mail today. A letter from OK Speed Marketing stating that they have finally received my money from the wire transfer and included in the envelope was a voucher for the ride in the Ring-Taxi. So I went ahead and booked a ride with them on May 4th at 3:00 PM. So we'll have to leave early from Berlin to make it to Nurburg in time.

So good things come to people to wait and take chances! :)

Bad News:
The site doesn't show any availability on May 4th anymore.

Good News:
I didn't pay for the ticket yet, I get 2 weeks of grace starting today.

If this doesn't work, I don't get to ride the Ring Taxi.

Good News:
If I buy the ticket anyways, I can sell the ticket on eBay to make a small profit.

I was told to go to "La Scala" in Baden Baden for great Gelato. Needed to write it down somewhere so I wouldn't forget.

BMW Ring Taxi

So good news. I went to the BMW Ring Taxi site today and saw that they have openings for rides on May 4th. Now all I have to do is get a ticket which goes on sale on Monday, April 7th at 1AM PDT. I'm pretty excited that I "might" be able to get ring taxi tickets....they go for 185 Euros...ouch.

For those of you who don't know what the Ring Taxi is, let me try to explain it to you. A professional driver takes you for a joy ride in a modified BMW M5 with a V10 507HP engine around the Nurburgring which consists 73 curves, 300 meters elevation and at a length of 21km in about 10 minutes. Click play twice in the video below to see a preview.
