New found hobby.

I have never thought I’d enjoy driving as much as I do now. Originally from a country that has tons of public transportation, there was never really a need to learn how to drive. But I can’t say that is true here in the U.S. You need to be able to get around and learning how to drive was one of the most important things that I had to master since I became an immigrant. To be honest, it was not easy for me to build up courage and confidence to get on the road and drive. I used to dread driving. But like they always say, practice makes perfect. As the years go by, I was able to overcome my fear and starting to really enjoy being out and about without having to depend on my hubby to drive me around town. It is actually one of the things I look forward to every weekend, you know get out of the house and have some free “Me” time, do a little shopping and stuff like that. Helena is pretty much big as compared to the previous towns we’ve lived in. Hence, traffic here can get a little crazy sometimes. It used to make me nervous, you know, but I can’t let that fear overwhelm me. A simple GPS device would have been pretty handy since I am not yet familiar with every little street this town has. I know I don’t need a fancy gps fleet management system. I was thinking,  a Garmin 1350 LMT probably would be a good one to start with.
