wordful wednesday - don't freak out, you're not driving


yep. we drive on the left

yep. our roads are pretty tiny.

yep. there aren't many cars on our roads

yep. that's the glistening waters of cook strait on one side of the road and a sheer cliff face on the other.

we live in an island remember!!!

and...yep. it IS possible to take an in-focus picture whilst speeding along on the back of a motorbike



for more wordful wednesday, visit angie over at seven clown circus

I'm OK with driving on the left. ;0) Did you take the photo? It's very good, but shouldn't you be holding on VERY TIGHT? I know that I would be!

Laura said...

Now this shows talent for sure :) Why are your roads so tiny? Because its an island.

For a giggle come stop by and check out the top ten reasons how you know you've lived in L.A. for too long.

Looks like that would be a gorgoues ride. Thanks for sharing it with us.

And you're SO lucky that there are not that many cars on the road there. So NOT the case here!
