Tea Break // #RangerRaptor

Go on, do as we did after our first bout of dune driving (no pics of during, it was all too exciting and fast for stills, but the Ranger handles it with no more effort than a trip to the shops) – take five minutes and catch up with the other posts on this blog, or maybe check out my colleagues’ YouTube channels…

Dune // #RangerRaptor

So tell me more about that Mud/Sand mode…

I might not need it so much in Southend on Sea, but out here in Essaouira it came into its own…

Those windmills? It was windy. My skin has never looked so good before the sandblasting I got that day.

I told you it also came in grey (although blue holds my heart)…

As the light softened, the sun set, and camels and Raptors made their way home…

Not a // #RangerRaptor

It may have some threads of Ford Performance Blue in that blanket, but I know which I’d rather take for a spin…

Begin at the Beginning // #RangerRaptor

That’s the best place to start…

I write this from the comfort of my sofa, home after a whirlwind trip that feels like a dream already.

The pace of my latest trip, as part of the Employee Social Media Ambassador team taking part in the Ranger Raptor Media in Essaouira, Morocco, meant that I had very little time to reflect and post on the go. Well, the pace and the mobile data charges…

So it seems a bit strange to think it was only on Wednesday that I flew out to Frankfurt, ahead of joining my colleagues on our flight out the next day.

Here we are (smiling because the drone alert that closed Frankfurt airport had finally cleared!):

So what’s the deal with employee ambassadors?

As in my other adventures on this blog, we are part of a small cohort of employees across Europe who on occasion are lucky enough to spend some time connecting with our business and peeking behind the curtain in ways in which we might normally only dream of!

Then our job is to take all we’ve learned, and share it – engagement and enthusiasm are contagious, and it’s our job to try and capture a little virality!

We all have our favourite channels – you’ll see I’ve linked the guys’ YouTube channels above. Me? I’m old school and I blog, I’m on IG and Twitter.

This is probably a good point to remind you if you’re new to the blog and haven’t yet caught up on my adventures in Valladolid and Amsterdam that all opinions expressed here are my own, and also because I’m not a traditional petrolhead things can get a little tangential here…

Across the employee ambassador cohort, not everybody gets to do everything – so imagine how lucky we three felt to be invited to travel to Morocco to spend some time with the new Ranger Raptor, coming to Europe this month?

Exactly. THIS excited…

So let’s really begin, shall we..?
