Love the VW. It brings back memories of a similar one we had way back when. Very fun to travel in.

Thanks for the memory.

Adoro a carrinha! E que cor tão linda!
Há trinta anos tinha uma carrinha de marca Hanomag toda verdinha, mas de um verde muito vivo a que se chama "verde germnico"! Vendê-mo-la rápido porque quase morremos nela! A mais da chave de contacto, havia por baixo do volante uma outra chave para bloquear o volante e a minha filha mais velha, que tinha nessa altura uns 2 ou 3 anitos, virou essa chave enquanto estavamos piquenicando na cruta de uma montanha nos Pirineus!!! Então, quando se pusemos outra vez à estrada, na primeira curva com o volante bloqueado tivemos o susto da nossa vida! ainda bem que conseguimos parar antes de avoar pelos ares da cruta da montanha! he he he;o)

Beijos e feliz fim de semana****

That VW wagon is such a gem! Look at that striped curtain behind the driver's seat! Yes - quite different from the RED car on my blog today indeed!

I would like to maybe try a cruise ship someday....

Halcyon said...

Both have their charms. But that orange bus is pretty enticing!

Sharon said...

The comfort of the ship would be nice but, the freedom of the road is the best.

joo said...

I love this VW wagon - it's gorgeous! I would also love to try this huge ship:)

Jacob said...

Aw...this is such a nice post with a great title. That's a rather large cruise ship, upon which I've never been. I've been on smaller ships that went out of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale to the 3-mile limit to gamble. That's all.

Volkswagens, the Fuhrer's car. I did ride in those in past years. Had one, actually, but not a van. Those old vans tipped over too easily.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Julie sometimes comments that she can't imagine anything worse than traveling in an RV, except tent camping.

This morning I told you that your picture evoked the Beatles ...
Your Photo of Wolskwagen is fantastic, many recollections for our generation of "grandmothers" who had 20 years in the 70s.
Since that time, I never stored my suitcase!

Ah, the VW wagon does bring back fun memories! And I do love cruise ships and have greatly enjoyed the cruises that I have taken! Terrific captures for the day as always, JM! Enjoy your evening!!

We had a VW van when I was a kid and it was great fun!

VP said...

Please, may I have a plane?

ladyfi said...

What a delightful red camper van!

Jarart said...

I'll take the VW, road trip!! Fun times!

T. Becque said...

I don't think either one is for me. I get too antsy in a car and I wouldn't feel "a part of it" on a cruise (sorry, don't mean to offend here).

Carolina Tavares said...

Esse rio é um mar e eu quero muito nele navegar.

Andrew said...

Road trip in the VW for me... I dream of owning a camper.

jennyfreckles said...

Give me the VW anyday. I had my honeymoon in one of those! (Years ago!)

Woody said...

The VW reminds me of "Alice's Restaurant", the one you photographed is in excellent shape and I love the color.

The cruise ship looks nice with the bridge in the background.

I have not traveled either one, but don't mind so !

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

I've had two old VW buses... love this one... great capture!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Very different JM, if I had to choose I would definitely take the VW combi van, not because I like camping so much, but because my fear of deep water is stronger!!

Gunn said...

I guess I could have enjoyed them both!:)
Stylish "retro" car!!

AB said...

Very European - an German hippie bus with a British flag in Portugal

brattcat said...

VERY different!!!

Sailor said...

A Royal Caribbean in Tagus River! Wow!

Cruise Pictures

Cezar and Léia said...

Difficult to decide which way is more exciting! :)
Loved the reflection within a reflection in the previous post too!
God bless you!

Duas boas imagens retratando meios não muito comuns de imagens. Parabéns pela ideia.
Retornei com o meu blog sobre o Rio de Janeiro. Quando puder, faça uma visita.
Um abraço

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Fabulous! I love the contrast. I'd be happy with either mode of travel (with slightly different wardrobes ;>).

Lisa Wilson said...

Great shot of the VW! That's quite a ship. I wonder how many people they pack onto it.

Art said...

Beautiful pictures. Your work is always so beautiful!

Randy said...

I would prefer the VW!

Babzy said...

i choose the first one :)

Joan Elizabeth said...

The top one is my preference.

Inger-M said...

Our first camper was literally a van that we equipped with a sofa bed and a bookshelf strapped to the walls and floor. Had great fun in that one! Now-a-days we prefer the comfort of a bigger RV or a cruise ship :-)
Great shots!

Dina said...

I suppose any way is good as long as you keep on traveling.

So big, the Tagus.

Rob and Mandy said...

Went to India and Nepal, and then Australia with a VW in the late sixties, with my parents. Brings back memories...
