PUT YOUR EYE ON THE ROAD, YOUR HAND BEHIND THE WHEEL

October 23, 2004

DRIVING IN THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD WHILE ON A WINE TOUR Waiheke Island – just off the coast of auckland and 35 minutes by ferry. maraming vineyards all over the island at masarap umikot dito and do a wine tasting tour. napaka scenic talaga ng new zealand. kahit saan ka mapunta ay may maganda at breathtaking na tanawin. at napatunayan ko na naman ang kabaitan ng mga tao rito. twice itong nangyari while on the island – the first time, isang taxi driver na babae ang tumulong sa amin at nagturo kung saan ang papunta sa town centre ng waiheke. yung isa naman ay isang lalaki ang biglang sumulpot galing sa likod ko (much to my surprise, siyempre) at tinuro kami sa tamang daan. muntik na nga akong napasigaw sa gulat. nag rent nga pala kami ng kotse para makaikot sa iba’t ibang mga vineyards. first time ko sa buong buhay na mag drive ng right hand. memorable dahil dito sa new zealand nangyari. hirap nga lang ako dahil baliktad ang mga controls. pag nag left turn signal ako eh bigla na lang akong nagugulat dahil bumubukas ang wiper. hehehe.

    hi eye.

    now that you pointed it out – it does look like the shire where the hobbit’s live. i am not surprised because new zealand is full of places that look like this. really pretty hilly grassy sheepy sites.

    cheers.
