I never really wanted to drive for several reasons. Foremost is my fear of being run over by buses or be squeezed in between vehicles in intersections and bottlenecks. Crazy fear, I know!
However, with my work schedule lately, I feel a strong urge to drive. It will be much easier, I guess. So, I tried looking for cars for sale online.
Since, I’ll be venturing out for the first time, I think getting a used car will be practical. Once I get the hang of it, I’ll get a new one. But there are so many choices out there! I found a great infographic with the best cars for women drivers so maybe I will try and get a second-hand version of one of them. The Honda Fit and The Honda Civic seem to be the best choices for a learner driver like me as they are small and don’t have much of a trunk, so less chance of backing into another car or wall! The Mazda MX-5 though is what I really have my heart set on. Maybe, once I pass my test, I can upgrade.
Now, the next challenge is: will I actually have the courage to drive the streets of Metro Manila? Will I have the courage to go neck to neck with those swerving buses and motorcycles as if there was no tomorrow?
Wish me luck!
