Even after many, many years there is still a love affair with the Cinquecento or Fiat 500
After a semester in Florence during college I was not able to return for a few years. I took a college friend with me and YES, I looked up my ‘Italian Boyfriend’, but relationships 8,000 miles apart with a language barrier don’t often survive. \
On this trip I took we rented a Fiat 500 and planned to drive to Spain. We only knew at the time that the 500 was CHEAP. But it also was SMALL.
Today we would call it classic.
Perhaps I need another Cinquecento for a trip across the USA.
Have you driven a Fiat 500? Share your story….
All these photos were shared with me by
Birgitte Brøndsted Photography.
I saw some of her incredible photos on another blog and found here on face book.
From her blog, A Dusty Olive Green Birgitte says:
Photographer at heart, translator by profession, blogger out of passion. That’s me. I’m Danish, from Copenhagen, but I have lived abroad most of my life, since I was 19 years old. I am madly in love with Rome, which has been my home for more than 10 years, but right now I live in Florence, which isn’t so bad either.
A” DUSTY OLIVE GREEN is a blog on photography and travel, but not only. It’s the world of a Copenhagener living the sweet life in Tuscany, where she wanders the streets with a camera around her neck and a toddler in
a stroller her hand.
I’m addicted to coffee, Instagram and my Mac. I love the sea, great food, September in Rome and the smell of summer rain.
I have been a vegetarian since I was 12 years old and I’m a firm believer in optimism and simple living.
I am probably more in love with places than most other people are. I think that the importance of cities and the bounds we have to them are highly underestimated. I believe that every city has its own soul, independently of who is living in it, and I know for sure that you can fall in love (really in love) with a city. I have. “
