Wow, I have published something every day this week – that doesn’t happen too often! Since O and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, I am especially pleased that Anna didn’t choose that boring old subject for this week’s Show & Tell. Instead we should write about CARS:
What’s my relationship to cars? Well, I have never owned a car – shocking to people on this side of the Atlantic where you usually get / buy your first car when you pass the driving test! I have had a driver’s license for 16 years on the 24th February (I am a sucker for remembering dates😉 ) but I haven’t driven regularly since I lived at home for one year in 1999! I never drove in Brussels, as I didn’t have a car and O’s company car was off limits until we officially lived together (February 2007) and then I was just so used to O driving us everywhere. I have driven two or three times in Puerto Rico but not since January 2008. It is just too scary for me here, in particular since I don’t have much experience of driving in heavy traffic and with multiple lanes. I do drive occasionally when we are in Sweden, but hopefully I will get into the habit of driving regularly again once we move back to Brussels.
Ok, so I am going to stop with quoting dates and show you some car-related photos instead – from our cruise in December 2009! Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of cars / license plates in Barbados, but all the other 5 islands + Puerto Rico are represented…
I don’t care much about what car it is I am driving, even if I come from a SAAB family and my grandfather, my parents and my brother have Saab cars and O had a Saab when I met him! I prefer smaller cars, and I loved the green Golf my parents used to have as a second car.
I will try to check out the other Show & Tell bloggers as soon as possible, but I am quite busy preparing for the guests arriving on Sunday.
