I love driving. At first, I didn’t like it too much because I am a slow learner, however, it quickly became one of my favourite hobbies once I got the hang of it. Sometimes when I’m bored, I hop in the car and drive around the city, purely for entertainment. I’ve found a number of secret spots and cool places by doing this.
For example, a few suburbs over, I spotted this bakery nobody had ever heard of. I went inside to discover that it sold the most delicious iced buns in all of Melbourne. I’ll definitely be keeping that one quiet, otherwise next time I go, they will be all sold out!
Another place I’ve found is one of the best mechanic shops Northcote seems to have. It’s always packed with cars, and when I stopped by one day to ask a customer what was going on, they said these guys were the most professional and qualified mechanics in the area. We don’t have one of those shops in my suburb, so I decided if I ever needed work or repairs done on my car, I would bring my vehicle there. As it turns out, one day I did.
I ended up going back to that store a few months later for a transmission service. I had been noticing that every time I drove, my accelerator did not seem to be pressing down properly. When I looked up the issue online, I noticed that most of the results seemed to be showing that the problem could be due to my car’s transmission. Not wanting to wait, I travelled to Northcote to get my car serviced. As always, the mechanical store was packed, however, I was surprised to find that it moved very quickly. By the time I got to the front of the line, the mechanic was immediately ready to assist me. They were friendly and professional, and clearly a team of extremely highly qualified experts.
