Loved The Vespa
I don't ride one now but when I was living in Paris my boyfriend had a Vespa of some sort that I rode almost daily. It was great for zipping around town and even for longer trips out of the city. Not too far though. I loved the feeling of the air rushing over me, something missing in a car. I drove a car there also, a 2CV that I think was slower than the Vespa, but it was cute. How I miss those days. Back then tourists hardly ever rode one so I was seen as being a native and I had a feeling the traffic police went a little easier on me.
