At this stage I don’t have my own car here in the UK. It can be a struggle at times but my goal is to have one once we found a place to buy. Although Joerg wants me to have a car now, I want to wait and I usually set my own milestones. Finding a house is so incredibly difficult and I think Brexit has a lot to do with it as well. The market is bleak and either houses are too tiny or far too big. A huge house isn’t someting we want though. Not only because it would be far too expensive. Our old house in Germany had the perfect size for the two of us and we always felt at home there. We’re often out and a huge house in a park-like setting isn’t something we would want because we would feel lost.

 
 

I used to drive a Mini in Germany. I was in love with that car and it seemed to have been the perfect fit for me. After having moved to the UK, I developed a huge passion for vintage cars. Joerg isn’t very amused about this. He do loves old cars and gets my passion too but buying one is very different and I get his doubts. We don’t really know anything about it, couldn’t do repairs if needed which makes things very complicated. classic cars cholmondeley

 
 

Last weekend we went to the Classic Car Show at Cholmondeley Castle. This was something very new for us and I must say that it was the best surrounding for these cars. Last year I fell in love with the Nissan Figaro which you see quite often around here. It is vintage alright but you get it with air conditioning and an automatic gearbox since the car was available until the 90s so I thought it to be a great alternative. classic cars cholmondeley

 
 

And then I spotted a Morris Minor. Isn’t the car in the second photo from above a dream? I would love it in a nice blue or green. Compared to a Figaro, it’s real vintage.

 
 

I still have little experience with all of this but was wondering if anybody of you has? Well, I do love a classic car and we saw some great models in Cholmondeley. The weather was tricky and my hat got blown away twice. We still loved it and to make it a perfect Sunday, we went for a Sunday Roast at Cholmondeley Arms. A beautiful pub in a former school. classic cars cholmondeley

Was für wundervolle Fotos! Ich liebe deinen Look und den Stil, den du verkörperst. Das ist alles so stimmig, dass man sich fragt, warum man hier noch im grauen Deutschland lebt. Ich bekomme Fernweh… und freu mich auf weitere Beiträge in Deinem Stil <3

Ach liebe Valérie, es freut mich so riesig, dass Du das sagst, vielen vielen Dank. Derzeit ist es hier leider auch sehr grau, wir sind in Cornwall und hatten echt noch nie solches Pech mit dem Wetter, seitdem wir überhaupt in den UK sind und auch früher im Urlaub nicht. Es ist immer super stürmisch und ich weiß nicht, wohin mit meiner Sturmfrisur 🙂 Aber wenigstens haben wir trockene Abschnitte, es könnte echt schlimmer sein. Ich schicke Dir viele liebe Grüße.x

Hello Kirsten. What a lovely day you had. I enjoyed the photos and I do hope you get just the car for you. I remember the old Morris Minors from my younger days. I have a friend who just loved hers to bits. Ruth xx

Despite the terrible wind and rain, we had a great time. I wanted to do some filming but it didn’t work out in the end because of the weather. I have to say, I’m terribly obsessed with a Morris Minor now.xx
