Gorko, avto in pol / Gorko, car and a half

Končno smo dočakali naš novi mini avtek, naš up!, naše veselje. Po treh mesecih romanja sem in tja na kratke proge, se prav prileže spet malo voziti naokoli. Sploh zdaj, ko je zima tako na hitro skočila na nas. Marsikaj se je napletlo v tem obdobju. Ni bilo vedno lahko, niti za trenutek pa mi ni bilo žal, da sva se tako odločila.
Naš novi družinski član Gorko je prava mala bombica črne barve. Znotraj je presenetljivo prostoren, na zunaj je pa videti kot bi nam prejšnji avto prežagali na pol. Stroški povezani z njim so se ravno tako prepolovili in ga imamo zato še rajši. Za prevažanje škatel in večjih tovorov bomo potrebovali precej domišljije, že zdaj pa padajo na ta račun odlične šale, ki se jim od srca nasmejim. Glede na to, da smo na avto čakali tri mesece, smo hkrati malo podoživeli čase iz moje rojstne letnice. Avto je danes nekaj najbolj samoumevnega, ponudba na trgu je res neprimerljivo večja kot takrat, tehnično gledano smo tudi napredovali. Kaj pa v naših glavah? Fičo je včasih zadostil vsem potrebam, prevažal čuda in zdržal marsikaj, danes smo glede tega precej bolj omejeni. Res pa je tudi, da se udobju in privilegijem težko odpovemo. Mi smo malo skrajšali svoj ego in rezultati so tu.

Za konec pa pripenjam meni ljubo pesmico Kjer je toplo, ki jo tako lepo zapoje Severa. Odlična pesmica za vožnjo v neznano! Ah, ja ... komaj čakam, da bo spet toplo...


We finally have our new mini car, our up! (up = hope), our joy. After three months of wondering here and there limited to short distances, it is quite delightful to drive around again, especially now that winter came upon us so suddenly. There was a lot of challenges in the past period and it wasn't always easy, however we have no regrets for decisions that we made.
Our new family member was named Gorko and it is a black mini bomb. Surprisingly spacious when you sit in it while from the outside looks like our old car was cut in half. Expenses have gone in half as well and that is why we love it even more. We'll need some imagination when lugging big boxes or other bigger things. There is already a fair amount of great jokes that have been made up and they make me laugh wholeheartedly.
Considering that we've waited three months for the car, we could reminisce about my early childhood. These days cars are something you take for granted and market has to offer a lot more than back then, technology improved immensely. How about our mind? Fičo used to be enough for all our intents and purposes, it endured all sorts of abuse, and we now see limitations when there aren't any. But, to be honest, it is hard very to give up acquired comfort and privileges. We've cut our ego a bit and the results are here.

Finally, I want to share a song, that is very dear to me, titled Kjer je toplo (Where it's warm), sung so beautifully by Severa Gjurin. Perfect song for a little journey to the unknown.
