Ever since I was a kid, I had a problem with identifying left and right. I used to always wear a watch so I can easily know which was my right hand.
Driving in New Zealand is the ultimate test of my sanity.
I learned to drive on the left-hand side of a car and travel on the right side of the road. In New Zealand, people drive on the right-hand side of a car and travel on the left side of the road.
The first time I rode a car in Auckland, my heart kept stopping. It felt strange being on the left side of the road.
When I finally started driving, I felt like I was inside a mirror. Everything inside my car was on the opposite side. I cannot count how many times I turned my indicator on, only to be startled by the wish-wash of my wiper. My poor windshield, if I keep this up, I’d have permanent scratches on it.
I’m a visual learner. So far, this is how I am surviving. Haha.
I’m just thankful drivers in New Zealand are kind and gracious. I’ll tell you more about that soon!
