The Friday Fiive

This is a set of questions from April 2021, all about driving!

1) Do you like to drive?
I neither like or dislike driving.  It’s just something I do because I need to, and I like to be independent, and not have to rely on public transport.

I don’t like driving around town/city centres I don’t know, and I don’t like driving unlit roads in the dark.

2) Do you own (or have regular use of) a car? What kind is it?

I do own a car.  It’s a Renault Kangoo, which is one of those cars that doubles as a small van. It's turquoise, which is my favourite colour, and I have it because when I have craft fayres and art exhbitions etc, I have a lot of stuff to carry around.

3) What is your favorite optional feature on a car?
Air conditioning.  I would never have a car without air conditioning again.

4) How much does gasoline currently cost where you live?
I filled up last week and it was £1.34 per litre.

5) What is the longest car trip you have taken?
Mr D and I did a road trip through Europe in 2003.  We went to Copenhagen in Denmark via France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany both ways.  But Mr D did almost all of the driving.  I have no sense of direction and no sense of spatial awareness, so I have never driven in countries that drive on the other side of the road because  would be a pile up waiting to happen.  For that reason, the only country, other than the UK, I have ever driven in is New Zealand.

The furthest I have ever driven is a round trip of about 400 miles to a town called Southport in the north of England.

This is me in my big blue buddy coming home from the Isle of Wight last week!
