Come on! Rhea? You must know by now!
Driving in the UK was lots of fun for us - the dangerous crocodile hunter sort of fun
I wanted to rent an automatic but hubby insisted that a manual was just fine (and less expensive). So manual it had to be! Here's the funny thing, I just couldn't change gear with my left hand! I don't know how you English people do that (though my hubby managed to do that as well). So, what I had to do was let go of the steering wheel and change gears with both hands
Can you imagine doing that on the highway
We were travelling with another friend (a guy) and both him and my dear husband shrieked whenever I had to do that
The worst part was those roundabouts. Let me tell you there is no way you can drive in one of them without holding the steering wheel - which for me meant I couldn't change gears and slow down. so there I was speeding around those darn circles again and again
while my hubby was trying to figure out which exit we should take
Actually driving in London was easier than we had thought. The drivers are so polite (compared to our lot) and I navigated really well (no, I wasn't driving at the time). Wales was the worst place to drive at. Not only are those roads so narrow, they also put stone walls at the side of the roads so you really have nowhere to run to. Then when a lorrie (truck) comes in front of you all you can do (or at least all I could do while I was driving) is pray real hard
So far for my UK driving experience. Can't wait to get back there but not necessarily as a driver
but I need to know Rhea, will you be there on the roads as well?
