We did survive Belarus

Hugo and I just got back from a roadtrip to Minsk, Belarus. Yep, getting the visa was a hustle, not to mention actually crossing the Lithuanian-Belarusian border by car. It's all forgotten now after two wonderful days in this interesting post-Soviet city.

We drove to Minsk in my 1987 Saab 900i. 3-speed automatic gearbox is not exactly ideal for high speed cruising. Instead we kept a comfortable pace and made many stops.

The Saab is on the road!

It has spent a decent number of years in storage – but now it's out and running again, my geeky 1987 Saab 900i. A pristine example with currently 25 000 km on the clock (!!). Please congratulate me for passing the MOT some days ago, it might be in mint condition yet we're talking about a 30 year old car...  Now we're on the road to Öland!

I bought this Swedish beauty when during my final year in Uppsala. A typical old man's car with ridiculously low milage.
