Deutschland - Day 2: Pit Lane Walk ♥

Hello everybody!

How are you all? ♥

My summer vacation is officially over, and I'll be back to work tomorrow. Not too excited about it, but at least I can go back to my vacation memories here in the blog in many posts. So today, we're flying to Germany and will see how the pit walk day was for us. For first two posts click here and here.

So, after visiting the zoo, we headed to Hockenheim to see the track as there was a chance for 3-day ticket holders to go and see the pit lane up close. There was also other things to see, as you can see below:

We had to stand in line for an hour before we got to the pit lane. Totally worth the wait though.

We got to chat with one of the guys from Lotus' staff. That seriously was pretty cool.

New engineer of Williams? Well, I guess not. But he looks pretty happy up there.

Looking way too happy next to the Williams' garage. But look, there's a place for Bottas! Yay! Fan girl #2.

Paddock area. My dream would be to get to enjoy the race from any paddock one day. Just to see what it's like.

Green tire wall. For those who don't know, this is for safety measures. It keeps the drivers from hitting a bare wall in case they make a mistake or get hit by another car etc. and lose the grip/control of the car. I still find it unbelievable that it's just rubber, and that it still is such a protection.

Now, after this we got something to eat and headed back to the hotel - and I opened a package the Santander girls gave me at the F1 Village:

So, like I said, they gave away these little boxes (to pretty much everybody), with some nice little Santander freebies.

A seat-cover with some foil - temperature-proof, love it.

Fernando Alonso postcards.

Ear plugs. With wire.

And a pen.

Yeah, I was lame enough to do a haul about a freebie box. Just let it go.

Anyway, that's all for this post, and tomorrow, I try to get another part up.

Let me know what you think about this post in the comments below!

Now, I'm gonna make some night snack, and then head to bed as I have to get my schedule in order for school within the next month. Excited for that! See you later you all.

Have a fabulous day ♥
