Three words: Oh. My. God. The girls and I have been chosen to be "ambassadors" for an Aussie travel insurance company called World Nomads. In exchange for a very, um, colorful camper van, cell phone, computer and iPod, we have to blog on their site (www.worldnomads.com) about three times a week. They're also affilated with Lonely Planet, so we've agreed to highlight one hotspot from this traveler's Bible each week.
I thought driving an automatic economy car on the opposite side of the road in New Zealand was tough. Now that seems like a walk in the park (or drive on a flat country rode). Being the only Lost Girl who knows how to drive stick, I had to navigate my way through Sydney's busy streets in a vehicle the size of a small house while trying to shift gears with my left hand. And I lived to tell the tale.
