In the last few months, I’ve been on a mission to try new and exciting things, particularly the things that scare me.
One of these things is driving. Now, I’ve had a fear of driving for quite a while. I will (eventually) take driving lessons but in the meantime, I’ve decided to make do by trying activities that simulate driving. One of such activities is Go-Karting.
I recently visited GET arena, a Go-Kart center in Lagos with a friend and had a blast.
The ride itself consisted of 10 laps around the circuit. Seeing as I’d never Go-Karted before, it was a big step for me in my journey to driving.
I wasn’t really sure how one should dress to a Go-Kart arena, but I’m in the process of perfecting my half-bun, so I thought I’d give it a try.
Overall, I think I nailed my casual look, plus I’m now eternally obsessed with my new backpack.
GET arena is usually quite packed (we had to wait about 2 hours for our turn), but luckily has an indoor restaurant. Being the foodie you all know and love, I decided to try it out. Their Burger is definitely recommended (8/10).
Now, these things are always best done with a companion. Luckily Iju was on hand to make the day as awesome as possible.
Now, the actual driving part. Well, I crashed twice, unfortunately. Fortunately, it was a great experience and I now feel less apprehensive about learning to drive…..sometime in the future.
