VVV Challenge



Event Type: General Blogging

Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly

Description: Every Tuesday I offer the A to Z challenge walking step by step through the alphabet.
Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had the “U”-challenge, so this week we’ll take “V” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “V”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “V”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the topic “Volkswagen”:


Volkswagen was in my life symbol of a lifestyle. Metaphors for mobility. They helped to escape from a small local horizon: Just as we climb today within minutes over the horizon of our environment: surfing the Internet! A feeling of freedom.

  2. V for Vintage Car as well, Frizz. 🙂 Great picture.
    Here’s mine with Viva Las Vegas. 🙂


    • hello Myra,
      great Vegas gallery –
      and I like your tags,
      they are like a laconic poem:
      “bellagio in las vegas,
      coca cola in las vegas,
      glitter and glam in vegas,
      greek inspired column in las vegas…”
      and now I have to go to a hospital,
      no fun…, it’s 6 a.m. –
      and because I’m not a cat,
      it’s not a VET who will
      try to help me now …
      my cat Emily,
      waiting for me
      to come back from the hospital
      to play banjo again –
      good luck to me.

    VVV – Ha for a change I am ahead of the curve!
    This was me hiking yesterday until it got too cold for my hands!

    Great vintage Volkswagon – this challenge was made for you ! When my children were young it was the custom to call it a “punch buggy” and punch the person next to you : ) Yep. It was wide spread and not just my kids : )


  4. The liberation and freedom of the open road!


  5. I thought of Volkswagon too. I found this post I did, about the FFV


  6. Love your Volkswagens, Frizz. Surf away!
    No music on my computer though, when I opened it today. 😦

  8. A beautiful shot! I drive a VW Polo, perfect to maneuver around our crazy traffic.


  9. A karman Ghia, a beetle, a Kombi and all with the same base of engine !
    And now, VW replaced it with the Scirocco, the Golf and the Caravelle, so far from the original wagen für das folk, as Ford is not producing the T-Model equivalent, citroen the 2CV… and Tata made a mistake with the Nano in India.
    We are not ready to drive those cars now, with no comfort, no air-conditioning, music, …. We changed too


  10. Hiya frizztext! Love those VW beetles!
    Speaking of V’s, there is a free V for anyone to use a blogpost. http://wildersoul.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/a-z-vvvvvroooooom/

    Also, as a quick thank you for following my blog, here is a special gift just for you! http://wildersoul.wordpress.com/free-gift/
    Well, feel free to share it with friends and family, including the WordPress family of course!
    Kia ora,

  13. Haha! Love this!
    I still hear the “punch buggy” as I drive down the road these days.


  14. I have some fond memories of the VW – as a twenty-something I travelled through 13 countries in Europe, hitting the road in a VW camper … with another couple and their 2 year old son and 6 month old daughter … three months on the road. We also owned a ’73 Super Beetle which has less fond memories of driving in -30F with little or no heat and stalling at the lights … with 3 young children in the back seat. Happily a there was a good Samaritan on the road that day.

    It’s a bit of a campaign piece.
