We Bought a Tesla Model S: Our First Electric Car!

1

Before I get into the good ole’ Tesla Model S news, let me just give some brief background about how I got to this point.

I’ve been on a journey to live my greenest life ever since a couple years ago when I woke up and started noticing how much damage is being done to the planet. It all started when I was in Bali and I found myself on a beach covered in litter. Up until that point, I suppose I was living in a bubble, completely unaware of environmental issues and how I was contributing to the problem. That’s why my site has slowly evolved from a generic travel blog into more of a sustainable travel and lifestyle blog.

So that brings me to my latest ‘green’ life update! I wrote a post the other day about how the hubs and I test drove a Tesla Model S and what my favorite features were that prompted me to go ahead and buy this popular EV that’s been all over the news lately. Well…it has arrived and we couldn’t be more excited!

Judging by the overwhelming amount of love we’ve gotten on YouTube about the newest addition to the fam (don’t judge me for making it sound like a baby), it seems like there are a LOT of folks that are excited about it too. Not only excited, but also just plain curious about what making the switch from fuel to electric is like.

THE DAY WE GOT A TESLA MODEL S

Here’s the video chronicling the delivery of our Tesla Model S. Just a heads up, it might seem a tad bit dramatic, but I swear we were just so happy! I know it’s an inanimate object, but it was a proud moment.

Are you thinking of making the switch to an electric car?

If so, you’re in the right place, because we’ve decided to continue with the Tesla content. Going forward, I’m going to keep up with posting a brand new Tesla video to my YouTube channel every Saturday for your viewing pleasure.

Karl and I plan to give tips, advice, and whatever helpful tidbits of knowledge we gain about Teslas and EVs in general. You can follow along on our road trips and see for yourself if range anxiety is an actual thing you need to worry about. This is something very new for us, so you’ll get to experience it as we do!

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

My blog focuses on sustainable travel and lifestyle, and I recently started to end each post with icons that identify which sustainable development goals (SDGs) are supported in my article. SDGs, aka global goals, are a worldwide call to action developed by the United Nations to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Click on the icons in my posts to learn more about that particular goal.

GLOBAL GOAL ADDRESSED IN THIS POST:

SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
