Today’s Big Adventure: Driving!

IMG_5217Knowing we would eventually need to expand outside our mass transit comfort zone, we chose to give driving a try. The challenge? Australians drive on the left side of the road. Steering wheels are on the right. This was a new experience for both of us. We rented a small, automatic deciding that I would drive and Frank would navigate. It took a little getting used to traffic approaching from the right, making right turns into left lanes and maneuvering from the left through roundabouts. I drove Frank nuts because I kept flicking on the windshield wipers — the turn signals here are on the right and old habits die hard!!! We drove across the northern suburbs, into the mountains and back along the ocean. Other than a couple beeps, I am happy to report we made it back without incident!
