While my sister-in-law Margo and I were in Thailand we decided to rent a scooter. It was just $3.00 a day and $3.00 to her up with gas. So we figured it was a pretty good deal and would be way too much fun!
The first couple of days Margo wouldn't let me drive the scooter. The traffic was wild there so I didn't really protest. Plus they drive on the wrong side of the street, so I had to kinda get used to that first.
After a couple of days I reminded her that I had grown up riding dirt bikes with my dad.
She said "ok I'll watch you practice on the side streets and we'll see how you do."
She totally made fun of how I got all hunched over and sped off like I was riding a dirt bike ha ha!
Then she made fun of me again when I came back, on how I stuck my foot out when I turned.
"ok seriously you are embarrassing me...this is a scooter not a dirt bike Tanya."
She was satisfied with what she saw, and hopped on the back, and we were off. This was by far the thing I had the most fun doing in Thailand. Waking up, hoppin on the scooter, and heading out on another adventure.
I was a little nervous about posting these videos because the sound is not working on my computer at the moment...so I am not sure what I am saying in any of these videos. I'll apologize in advance for anything stupid that I say.
