Driving on the Left

This actually hasn't been as hard to get used to as anticipated. Maybe we are extra aware of it, and just trying really hard, but it’s going pretty well so far.
The Trickier thing is getting used to the fact that the cars are a mirror image of the cars at home. The driver sits on the right, gear-shift is still in central column (so to be used with left hand), and the gas pedal is still on the right, but that makes it right next to the door.  But that still isn’t the worst part…….
You don’t realize how many times you use your blinker until you accidentally turn on your windshield wipers instead of your blinker every single time you make a turn. The blinker switch is on the right-hand side of the steering wheel. That’s actually the hardest part about driving on the left.

Despite all that, we are seeing a lot of beautiful sights by driving around on the left!!!
Like Sheep and Hills, 

Streams with mountains in the distance, 

and oh yeah, another red deer!
