Note: I posted this roadtrip diary to the German Tesla forum TFF originally in May 2018 in German language but since I still "owe" a few people an English version I'm now finally taking the time to translate it into English and post it here on TMC in January 2020 as well. Hi TMC! After my wife and I visited Moldova (in German) with our Model S 85D in 2017, and I had travelled to Portugal, Gibraltar and Andorra (in German) (from DeC to DeC) shortly before that, and made a roadtrip to the inofficial SuC in Moscow the year before it was time for a new electric car adventure for 2018. As I was pondering which interesting destinations are reachable by car I remembered that some SuCs were built in Jordan already back in 2015 and that maybe it would be fun to visit them. But: Reachable by car? By road you would have to pass through Lebanon or Syria to arrive in Israel or Jordan. Too dangerous. And even if it wasn't dangerous: The border Lebanon-Israel is closed. Syria-Jordan would be possible, but, well... Upon further research I found out that there is exactly one affordable way to get into the desired area with your own car: Onboard a freighter! In particular: With Grimaldi Freightercruises. The Italian shipping company Grimaldi offers something called "slow travel" on a few dozen of their freighter ships. That means you can travel on the ship (usually a car freighter), optionally together with your own vehicle, in one of the 5-10 cabins which are available for passengers. There is no entertainment program, there's just you, the crew, your cabin and you'll get served food 3 times a day. For people who really want to take a time out. Perfect for reading all those books that you purchased over the years but never managed to read and put in your bookshelf for sometime later. There are several routes (PDF): Europe, Africa, South America, you name it. For our purpose there was just one route a match: "ADRIATIC SEA". Board in Monfalcone, Italy and exit in Ashdod, Israel. The crossing was supposed to take 7-8 days. Sounded good! Never done before, why not try something new. Surely it would have been possible to ship the car just by itself but making the trip together with the car was better for the environment, and we could save a flight. But, it turned out not as planned... Start of the trip was on April 21st in Frankfurt, Germany. First overnight stay was in Innsbruck, Austria. What a beautiful city and amazing views, wow!
