Intermot Photos

I don’t really have too much commentary for this other that I hope you enjoy these photos. There’s quite a lot to take in at the show. One aspect very noticeably missing from the Intermot was the models. EICMA is definitely more model friendly than Intermot. I also noticed that the Queen made her presence pretty…

Deine Schwalbe

I’m guilty of neglecting this blog a little. Well, neglecting it a lot actually. And I’m not one to make excuses, it’s just that I’ve been pretty busy in other areas of my life. One such area is the Schwalbe scooter seen below. My role in this scooter is that of a project manager. I…

Bavarian Curling

Looking somewhat similar to the standard curling we’re already used to, Bavarian Curling dates as far back as 16th century as seen on this Peter Bruegel painting from 1565.

While work is work and scooters rolled around all day, on one afternoon my…

Baden-Baden, Schwarzwald in Spring

Even though we’re way into the Spring season the weather decided not to…

Karma

Seeing a Fisker Karma in L.A. I probably wouldn’t even whip out my phone to snap a photo. I mean even Bieber has one! But we don’t get too many toys like that in Poland, well, none at all actually, so when I saw this Karma on my current visit to Munich, Germany I had…
