Driving and a New Idea!

As you probably know, in Ireland (and other parts of Europe), the steering wheel in a car is on the right side, and you drive on the left side of the road.

You might not know that, in Ireland, your name has to be on insurance for a vehicle before you can drive it yourself.

All that to say, my name is finally on the insurance for the only automatic vehicle at the mission -- a mini-van. Tuesday was my first day driving.

First reaction: It feels *good* to drive again! I've missed it.
Second reaction: Wow, it feels really weird to drive on the wrong side of the car. I think I could easily get used to wrong side of the road, but wrong side of the car is odd.

I've only driven the mile and a half between the house and the shop so far, but after my 5th trip, I'm feeling more confident. I had to relearn how much space my vehicle takes up in relation to where I am on the road, but so far, so good!

Okay, so I had an idea for my blog, since I've already introduced you to the house and the shop, and I haven't been anywhere yet to see any new scenery.

I'd like to take you on a visual and textual tour through the foods found here that are unavailable in the States.

First up: TAYTO® Milk Chocolate Bar with Cheese & Onion Crisps -- Love it or loathe it? Check back soon!
