Small vehicles, Rome, Italy

Walking around Rome, Italy, I spotted a number of tiny vehicles. In a city of tiny, winding streets, it’s definitely easier to use one of these than a full-size machine. This fleets makes deliveries:

Tiny Car

Not sure what kind of car this is, but I spotted it on the street and took a quick snap.

Looks like a small engine tucked in the side, probably just enough for in-town speeds. Parking is surely easier. It would fit perfectly with the tiny house movement. Be careful on the roads.

Basically, you can rent these cars and they’ll take you on a GPS guided “talking tour” providing you with interesting tidbits along the way.

Might be a fun way to do your own tour of a major city. This company does have cars in other cities, which may be an option for your travel plans.

Aruba Airport to Hotels, Driving Video

Here’s another one of my Aruba Driving Directions videos. This time, you’ll go from the Queen Beatrix Airport to both the low-rise and high-rise hotel area. Instead of driving through Oranjestaad along the waterfront, you’ll go inland to avoid what can be a very congested area. Depending upon the time of day, both routes can be busy, so be warned. Here it is:

As always, be careful while driving. If you have a passenger with you, let them enjoy the sights during that first, unfamiliar ride. Concentrate on the road. Enjoy your visit to Aruba! (For this video: Cameras and lenses by Nikon.)
