After riding on the back of the motorbike for 4 weeks all over Southeast Asia, it was my turn to drive.  My good friend Sofia insisted that this be her lesson even though I was obviously hesitant.  She learned in Myanmar where she currently lives and works as a teacher.  Sof was confident that I could do it.

I’m happy to report that my skills improved immensely and the next day I drove for about 30 min on the roads of Phuket in the rain.

Thanks Sof for being an amazing teacher and encouraging me even when I was beyond nervous.  You are the best travel buddy a girl could ask for!!!  xo
