Picking Up the Van!

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 26 April 2007 | Views [1557]

Are you kidding us?!

We still can't believe that World Nomads is actually trusting us take possession of their freakishly tall, psychadelically decorated Amabassador Van. Its not that we're not responsible (totally trustworthy, we promise!)...its just that of the three of us, Holly is the only one who can actually drive a stick shift.

Our jaws basically hit the floor when the folks at Autobarn handed over the keys and told us that we'd have to figure out the manual transmission. We recovered long enough to take a tour of the van's cool features (two burner stove! sink with actual running water!) and film this video for the folks running the AB.

At this point, Jen and I still haven't taken over the driving duties, but we've promised Holly that we'll learn....soon. Can anyone recommend a good place to practice in Sydney before we take off for the Blue Mountains??
