Driving

Even though my knowledge of Belfast geography has been improving in the past few months, I still find it a challenge to drive to nearly anywhere in or around town. N has been very patient with me: if I have an appointment somewhere that I will have to drive to on my own, he’ll teach me how to get there once or twice beforehand, sitting next to me in the car while I drive. But this weekend I’ve noticed a problem with this setup: I only know how to get to places from my house.
The other day I had to go to three different places in one day, all of which I knew how to get to, from home. So I had to go back home twice, which probably added about 30 or 40 mins of useless driving around to my day. No fun. I think the next step is to either get a TomTom, or to just try to make more drivable connections between places.
