My first car

Posted by Claudia Moser on 6:52 AM in , , ,
Waking up at 4.30 am isno fun, let me tell you that, but with a coffee life starts to look better. Now, after my 3rd coffee for the day, I can actually open my eyes without being too much hurt by the bright light. Travelling ... Flying ... And when I left home I also said goodbye to my car, my very first. I took the driving licence very late, I was not like many of my friends who when they reached 18 they were driving all around. It took me a while, probably because I did not feel the need to drive, walking or taking public means of transport suited me fine. For long distances I took the train and the plane, so why bother? But then I started to work and among my duties were travels in the middle of deep rural areas. Unreachable without a car and I did not have the luxury of a driver, so I had to. And with this came also my first car, a lovely feasty red blitzer who takes me everywhere. We have a good relationship, no accidents, no damage, and she still works like magic. She came with me to Germany as well, and here I discovered that she is not made for speedy highways, she is a comfortable little car, who feels at home on quiet streets. But in the end she is great and for the next 3 weeks I will miss driving her around!



Good morning to you, I am only at my first cup of coffee but ready for a refill. It's nice to be able to drive and I really miss it these days. Enjoy your weekend....Eva

I'm only on my 2nd cup - so you win!

Sorry to hear you're having such an awful journey to Romania my friend, what with the cancellations and delays. How nice that you still have your first car! I passed my driving test when I was 17, some almost 50 years ago! Eeek! I used to hare around in a little bright red Mini (the original 60's one!).

That's awesome that you are driving your first car! You will never forget it, quiet little streets are where I like to drive most. The highways and xways are great if time if of concern, but otherwise, I like traveling the back roads.

Dearest Claudia,
Oh, you must miss her (Hope "her" is ok, haha). My husband still reminiscently keep his first car in mind. Haha, I don't have a license because I know I am not a person for driving. (really careless). I wish I had(*^_^*)
Love you always from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

An adventure it was, but glad to be home and driving again!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
