I’m taking a refresher driving course with Smart Driving School here in Makati City, as suggested by my husband (‘aint he a great guy?... always thinking what’s best for me.. Happy Father’s Day, my love, @dave_trevino_12 ). Well, this is my opportunity to get used to a new car and the crazy Manila traffic. I need to learn how to do parallel parking, too. 😂 I took driving lessons in Florida back in 1994 and at the time, it was the biggest challenge I had to face as a new resident of my new home in a foreign country. I don’t know how practical testing is done now, but back then, parallel parking wasn’t included. 😂 So for the first day with Smart, it’s good to know that I haven’t forgotten how to drive! It feels like second nature. Then, two jeepneys stopped in front of the car, both taking two lanes; a couple of motorcycles dashed on my both sides; pedestrians came out of nowhere walking as leisurely as they could past by my right side; road constructions; vehicles of all kinds parked all over by the side streets; big buses - one on both sides and two behind - racing to get in front of me and of all the cars on the road. 😓 Driving here will take some getting used to. 😊 I did nail my parallel parking on my second day. 😊 Thank you Smart Driving! Complimentary post driving class on changing tires, checking engine and such, next! #smartdrivingschool#smartdrivingschoolph#morefuninthephillipines#drivinginasia#drivingschools#drivinglessons#yogamom#travelingmoms#travel#happyhealthymom#learningneverstops#smartdriver#drivingsmartisdrivingsafe#smartdriving
#tbt 🌅 The limestone cliffs of El Nido harbor some interesting species of bird life, including a type of swiftlet that makes nests suitable for use in a soup delicacy. The harvesting of the nests is unsustainable and the practice continues because of an extensive market for it in China.
Despite this, the cliffs remain breathtaking and when the light is good—magical.
