My dearest friend, Gerdie, from the Philippines, who we brought on the Ring of Kerry...at the proper crossing the road...! LOL!

 As a pedestrian in Spain,I tried to cross the road at a roundabout....not a hope...I got dizzy. At least here in Ireland we have the Leprachauns to help tourists to drive on the RIGHT hand side...:)

We do have Roundabouts in Oregon and they still confuse me. We don't have any on major roadways however. I have driven in both Ireland and Scotland and found I had to concentrate to stay on the right side if the road. Several times I got into the car on the wrong side too.

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on April 16, 2012 at 12:20pm

Dear God...NO roundabouts in the U.S.? 

I'll let ye know that I would never drive abroad either, Spain,Philippines..etc....all drive on WRONG side of road anyway..LOL!

But I'm used to it...lol

Catherine..I'd take two sensible days too, when the boys were at school in Scotland, but my American friends mistook the difference in our roads when compared to theirs.  On our roads you have to drive we have roundabouts & such...it is very rare that we can sit back & cruise.  In the end we used to ferry our friends, it was safer for everyone...

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on April 16, 2012 at 11:48am

But Robin...on the way back you would be on the outside..LOL!

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on April 16, 2012 at 11:40am

Christine..my brother lives in Herts, and it takes him 2 days to drive to Aberdeen,where his son is at Uni..!

Robin....LOLOL!

Comment by Christine Bedford on April 16, 2012 at 10:32am

Reminds me of the American friends who have visited me, and thought they would drive up to Scotland...in a day!!  They did 2 circuits of the M25 & then came back quivering with exhaustion...LOL

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on April 16, 2012 at 9:10am

We were on roads that said "No Buses or Lories" I was ok since driving is backwards there for us, I was on the inside...lol totally freaked hubby out though.

"Charlotte, I do feel blessed that my husband shares my passion for gardening. Your harsh climate in Oklahoma does make it especially challenging for you, but I'm guessing it also makes gardening even more rewarding when your efforts pay off."
