    The Power of 2

    Early one sunny Sunday morning in the city of Mannheim, Germany, something extraordinary happened. Mrs Bertha Benz set out on the 65-mile journey to visit her parents in neighbouring Pforzheim, with her two teenage sons in tow. Nowadays, this may not seem especially remarkable - millions of us make similar trips every weekend to see loved ones. What made Bertha’s journey so remarkable was that the year was 1888, the journey took over 12 hours, and was the world’s first long-distance trip by car.
