Big boys toys. Yes, my husband and I have seen them all over Europe. From Santa Margherita, Portofino, Maranello, and Bolzano, Italy to Salzburg, Austria and Munich, Germany, the amount of incredible mechanical toys that men collect is amazing. Be it cars, motorcycles or boats, the size and scope of what we have seen could fill many pages of the most famous men’s upscale magazines.
There have been the antique cars at touring events, the group of friends that were traveling along the coast of the Mediterranean in their classic roadsters that my husband met in Santa Margherita,
the cars at the Ferrari museum,
the antique Fiats on the square in Bolzano
to the Red Bull Formula One race cars, motorcycles and planes in Salzburg.
Who could forget all the yachts lined up in the harbor of Santa Margherita or the mega yacht that filled so much of the harbor in Portofino, Italy.
Munich, Germany was no exception. Parked in front of the Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski on the Maximilian Strasse, there was always a parade of exotic cars. The Mercedes Benz showroom was no exception.
If that wasn’t enough, we decided to visit the BMW museum on a rainy day. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t a car buff or don’t own a BMW, you will enjoy this museum.
As you can see, men sure do know how to enjoy themselves with their big boy toys.
