Default Here's my dream

Car: Nice european car, something like VW Golf GTI, Passat, E class, 5 series, Audi A6 etc. having the best handling. Porsches are for later

location: Nice windy road, smooth surface, lots of curves, hills, nice greenery, view of ocean

Music: Some nice jazz

Weather: spring, cool breeze

Put together: I dream about driving my favouriate european car with great handling through some nice curvy european roads, isolated from traffic, listening to nice jazz, windows rolled down enjoying the cool breeze and having my wife next to me.
