Cars Around The World

Cars come in all shapes and sizes and they have been very useful to mankind, although in a way have also been detrimental. But I think I can be more grateful to this invention than the opposite. Cars around the world come in all kinds of shapes, colors, and sizes.

Whether you drive on the right side or the left side, or you have used a car to travel or to commute, to transport or to advertise, to entertain or to provide, cars have countless uses. I remember my very first car with affection, a VW Bora, whom still lives, actually.

Below is a series of photos of cars (including buses and other kinds) from across my travels, enjoy!

Cars around the world

long beach 06851

This boat car was seen in Long Beach, WA.

I thought it was quite a unique vehicle to spot. It seems like it both drives and swims, and it can hitch to something else. I have seen bigger vehicles that drive from ground to water, so it’d be interesting to see this one in action.

The sunset can be seen coming from inside this Red Cross car in Pendleton, Oregon.

And this sunset is seen from behind the car driving through the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon.

I have ridden millions of rickshaws during my travels in India. These dusty, bouncy and doorless vehicles are everywhere in this country. We even bought one once but we couldn’t get it to work!

This ice cream truck provides free ice cream on a hot day to shirtless guys in Portland, OR. Ok, it was just one shirtless guy.

This is a colorful trash truck seen in the streets of Mexico City.

Chilling in the car at the park.

We made good use of our minivan one day and parked by the park and chilled out with some wine.

We borrowed D's convertible VW bug to go get the part.

I got to take this convertible VW bug for a drive before the owners got rid of it.

This colorful bus is Capt. Jonny’s bus who sells fresh fish across Oregon and Washington.


This was the first time I saw a Russian food cart. We didn’t try it.

I like this fire truck in Ahmednagar, India.


Another vintage blue car seen at Seaside, Oregon.

These cars used to be very common in past times in India. This one still lives.
