My BMW Thelma and Louise Road Trip: Favorite Photos

A few months ago my friend Helle and I decided to go on a road trip this summer. The idea was aka Thelma & Louise (ha ha, without the ending) to drive aimlessly around in Denmark - no deadlines, no pre-fixed destination, just go with the flow. So we did...

We were blessed to have the industrial designer himself show us around; and Alfredo Häberli is indeed an authentic man.
