As the engine in my car conked itself out once and for all last week, we decided to buy me a scooter. The idea of saving $50-$60 a WEEK on gas (petrol), not having to deal with vehicle registration (or associated costs) and of course the novelty of it seemed mighty appealing.
All is going well so far despite a little rain and wind and the fact that it is painfully slow...except on downhills and then its WWEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But here's something to ho ho ho about this Christmas...my experience Christmas shopping, grocery shopping and picking up packages from the post office...all in one trip. Lets just say I was quite the sight, especially considering that scooters are not even common here, let alone a blonde girl riding one with stuff hanging all over it :-)
