We're on EV-Sales and I'm Penny

Well, hello, hello dear 2016! And what good news thou bringst! My, o my!
Being referenced by EV-Sales (just THE blog about evs) is quite a treat: thank you to the über ev fan and fellow countryman over there!
And as it seems, I'm kinda the Big Bang Theory Penny lost amidst the geek, nerdy gang. Yeah, I do sometimes feel like Penny: both blonde, both strangely finding themselves unwantingly crashing in the world of geek and both utterly unable to escape it freewillingly. How's that for life's ironies?
I do, however, hold a PhD, which is miles away from nerdiness and all things tech. And what good does it do me as I enter the Tesla galaxy? Penny, I so do understand you. But ah, this crazy little thing called Love...
It joins even the most disparate souls.
If you want to read the bit about my Pennyness, here it is with credits to José Pontes and his blog of ev fabulousness:

Ever wondered how 0 kms Model S end up in countries where Tesla isn't officially represented, like Russia, Romania or Portugal?

Wonder no more, On the Road with Tesla follows one of these cars, in it we see a Model S buyer endeavor, from the website configuration, passing through the Tilburg delivery, to the current status of getting a number plate in Portugal. 

It will be interesting to see how it will develop, the moment it is finally allowed to go on public roads, first impressions, reliability, and for me a very interesting point will be this, how do you service a car that has no nearby service centers? Mmmm...

An important feature, https://ontheroadwithtesla.wordpress.com/ is in English.


There is a mirror blog of this, also named On the Road with Tesla, but on a different server, (well) written by the wife of this Tesla-owner, documenting their sometimes strange life, like travels searching for superchargers, talking with the random Model S owner, besides other ev-like quirks.

In a way, it reminds what Penny from The Big Bang Theory would write about Sheldon Cooper, Leonard and the rest of the pack, if they were Tesla-fans...

Really interesting, even for people that aren't EV-nerds do not know what a Tesla is.
