Driving a grandma’s car

When I got my car it was obvious that a grandma had been driving it. I only chose this car because of the mileage. Hybrid cars get very good mileage. Good mileage means it saves you money. I’m someone who likes money so it makes sense for me to drive a car that gets good mileage. Mika has the added benefit of being a grandmother’s car. This means you don’t expect someone driving my car to be speeding. So I think that might be one reason why I haven’t got a ticket yet. I hope this doesn’t jinx me knock on wood. But it goes to so that image does mean everything. If I’m correct that is.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
