It had to happen. I thought I'd adapted really well to the whole driving-on-the-other-side-of-the-road thing. It was weird at first, but with a bit of concentration it was pretty easy to adjust to the new arrangement. I mentioned in a previous post that the really weird thing was having all the insides of the car on the opposite side - doors, mirrors, seatbelts, etc - but the actual driving thing was working out ok.

The worst times seem to be when you pull out of a driveway or carpark... for some reason, those are the times when it's easy to forget where you're supposed to be. This morning we went to McDonalds, came out of the drive-thru and absentmindedly turned left onto the main road. About 100 metres down the road I wondered why there were 3 cars coming towards me on the "wrong" side of the road! Yikes! We quickly pulled over, to some fairly bewildered looks from the other drivers. I think I needed a big sign on the car saying Dumb Aussie on Board. :-)
