I learned to drive when I was 18. My first car was originally my mum’s: a butter yellow Metro! Easy to find in car parks! But it had no fifth gear and struggled going at full speed on dual carriageways…
Then after university I bought a car for myself, a dark green Ford Fiesta which I owned for 6 years before updating to a more modern blue Fiesta.
Last year I needed to buy a bigger car to accommodate the three car seats in the back seat so opted for a blue Galaxy. It also has a huge boot to fit Ollie and all of our luggage in on trips.
I love my Galaxy and am proud of some of the journeys I have made recently. My mum is a very nervous driver and I think expects me to be the same so I loved driving us all the first leg of our holiday last year to York. The look on her face when she waved us off was hilarious! Then I drove the whole way to Manchester all by myself for BlogOnXmas last month and tomorrow I’m off to Southampton.
The thing I hate most about cars is parking. The actual driving bit I’m fine with but I always worry that I will be able to park when I arrive. I cannot parallel park, never been able to do it 🙁 The Galaxy has parking sensors which are fab as it is so huge!
So how about you, what was your first car and what are you driving now?
