So last weekend I left on a Roadtrip to the mountains. I left in style in my Ford Territory Titanium that I currently have on loan from Ford, to be part of the Voices of 2013 "Choose your own Adventure" challenge thanks to both Ford and Kidspot. So to start with lets be honest for a second, really honest.. I drive a Lancer. I love my Lancer to bits, it is the first and only car I have ever owned (Our love story is coming up to 10 years!) but my little lady is a bit beyond her years and there are some places that she has retired from, the mountains being one.
Driving up in the "White Beast" as we have called her was simply divine, it felt like we were moving in slow motion with the drive being that smooth. No chugging along like I would usually feel in my little lady and as an added bonus my mans little ones happily sat in the back watching a DVD whilst we tuned out to some smooth tunes in the front.
We headed up to the Gembrook market, alongside the iconic Puffing Billy railway, then continued onto Skyhigh in the Dandenong Ranges, had a little picnic and a hot drink (it was freezing!) , then enjoyed the sunshine back down the mountain with a few peaceful pit stops in between. Although we didn't have time this day if you head up to the ranges I strongly suggest stopping at Pie in The Sky in Olinda for Devonshire Tea, its a mouth watering sensation and I am a bit of connoisseur of Devonshire Tea (I do live only 30 minutes from the Dandenong ranges, which has an absolute abundance of hidden tea and scone gems!). I wore a jacket I found in a H&M sale in New York, I found this jacket whilst walking 5th avenue on my "Tourist day" and I have to say I got pretty nostalgic 90% of the day with memories from my trip.
Enjoy my little video, (Which was filmed by my man, not me! Do not phone and drive people!) don't laugh too hard as its the first one I have ever done which was a bit of a learning process! And as the motto goes.... "Choose Your Own Adventure" (and if you can choose it ,in a Ford Territory Titanium because really its pure luxury and I know all you ladies are a little luxurious!)
What car do you drive?
