Driving Mitsubishi, My Auto Adventure
I was loaned this 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander by a automobile company in return for my honest review. My thoughts and opinions are ALWAYS MY OWN.
It is the middle of winter here in the Northeast. Not my favorite time of the year. There isn’t as much to do here in the winter as in the summer months. So it can get kind of boring. Which turned out to be a perfect time to get an email asking if I would like to check out the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander.
Heck yeah, I would! This gave me a reason to go explore one of my most favorite places in the state I live, Newport, RI.
Newport is a gorgeous, historic, picturesque seaside city. A city known for its old money. Families such as the Vanderbilts, Astors, and the Dukes would reside here in the summer. The Newport Mansions are a “must see” when in Rhode Island. These “summer homes” are protected by the historical society and are open to visitors. I highly recommend taking a tour of some of the amazing mansions.
The drive from my house to Newport is about 35 minutes. So I hopped in this sporty Mitsubishi Outlander and went on my adventure. This crossover felt like I was driving a car. Smooth ride and handled really well. I will say cruising over the two bridges to get to Newport was a breeze.
I drove the Outlander along the famous Ocean Drive. With magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean. Where the ocean literally blends to the gorgeous blue skies.
I walked the famous Cliff Walk, visited the campus of Salve Regina. Newport holds so many great memories for me. A dear friend of mine went to Salve and lived in Newport in our late teens and early twenties. We made many great memories here. One that I will treasure forever was at her graduation from Salve. I remember being so happy and proud of her. So as I walked past the exact spot the graduation was held, I couldn’t help but have all of those great memories come rushing back.
I don’t know if it is because I am an Aquarius or just because I have always lived by the ocean, but the ocean/beach brings me such peace. The sound of the waves, the smell and feel of the salt in the air, I feel so grounded and at ease after spending time by the ocean. I saw this gate and wanted to take a picture. It reminded me that life brings us many twists, turns, and choices. Everyone leading to a new chapter. Most importantly, enjoy the ride!
