ah so now I’ve been asked to do a fill in at another centre, which isn’t a problem in itself, but it means I have to drive on….
This is quite scarey for me, which I can’t remember if I’ve explained before, but the people here drive on the freeway crazy compared with tiny ol’ Adelaide that only has one freeway it can really call a proper freeway. And here, they drive pretty much the same style at 120km (or faster……..mostly faster) as we do at 60km on Main North Road. So to sum up, it’s a bit scary.
Before going to the class I was therefore more nervous about driving on freeway than ever about teaching the class…….especially cuz teaching classes, even at strange gyms just doesn’t make me nervous these days. But I was trembling holding onto the steering wheel while driving onto the freeway. Luckily the freeway was pretty quiet by Dutch standards and I could easily get on to the freeway, and I like it when there’s a truck in front of me and I can just sit behind the truck while all other cars overtake. On when the left lane is clear do I dare to try overtaking.
Well, it’s only my second time alone on the freeway and me and tom (tom) got there and back safely. Oh and the class went fine aswell, and I’m filling in again next week (another drive on the freeway…….oh dear).
