In This Life

I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me.

Real Driving


Men love cars.

I like cars. And I like driving. Although I can’t even afford a used car. I always dream of owning a car and driving in the street or road, since I was a child. It’s a nice dream, I think. But it’s just a dream years ago.

As I’m getting older and more and more people have cars for China’s rapid development, it’s possible for me to think about cars, at least driving.

This winter holiday, I began to learn driving at driving school. It’s an exciting thing, and a little bit tiring. I’m spending not many minutes in a jeep at driving school every day. In order to learn driving better, I asked some of my friends and relatives to borrow their cars to feel the feeling while driving out of the driving school. I call it Real Driving.

I have driven four different vehicles. They are Zhonghua Zunchi, Volkswagen Santana, Mitsubishi Pajero and Honda Accord. I have given their photos of those kinds in the below.

Driving cars outside is very different from sitting in a jeep at driving school. What you get at driving school can be just used to pass the examination. If you want to drive in the street, you need to know more. And different vehicles, different feelings. For example, driving a car is different from driving an off-road vehicle. I mean the vehicle itself and the feeling you get while driving it.

Because I’m still a rookie at present, I often behave somewhat badly at the beginning of driving another unfamiliar car. I don’t know where exactly the wheels are and how to speed up steadily. Especially when I shift the gear, I feel a bit difficult. But I always try my best to get familiar with the car and control it better.

I know some more time needed before driving freely. And I’m sure I will be able to do it one day.
