... driving up and down steep Tuscan hills on a dirt road hunting for the villa in the pitch black. Also, the tiny Fiat Panda we'd rented didn't have enough power in second gear to climb the steep inclines, but first gear had way too much torque, so letting the clutch out inevitably resulted in a cloud of dust around us as the wheels spun in the dirt.
