Stelvio or Bust
If you've never looked into an Elise, do yourself a favour and take a peek. We did when we met Tony for lunch at the Bird in Hand in Wrenningham near the Lotus factory. We even sat in Tony's Elise after he gave us a nod. The seat is, well, a body-shaped casing with 1.5 inches of padding. That's it. 4,000 miles in two weeks on slightly-padded metal. As we contemplated Tony's trip, we suddenly thought about luggage.
'Where do you put your luggage, Tony?' we asked. He showed us the Elise's boot.
'It's not much, but it serves us ok. As for clothes, well, we take what's made of fabric that dries overnight. So, we just need one set,' mused Tony.
Now that's driving enthusiasm!
