October 8 & 9, ’04 – Abi and I rented a car and quickly learned to drive on the “wrong” side of the road. Actually, it wasn’t the driving that was the hard part, it was turning on the blinker when you wanted the windshield wiper! Everything is opposite of what you know, that’s the challenge! Oh, and driving round-abouts when you’re on the wrong side of the road, those are tough. We drove our rental to the Tongariro National Park, the land of the Lord of the Rings.
