When Jon was accepted to get his wish to Ireland, we knew of 1 roundabout locally here, and every chance we had to visit it hubby would practice going around it.

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.

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...

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.

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on April 16, 2012 at 7:10am

Yes, I don't think it would be allowed by the Ring of Kerry.

I didn't understand the signs showing cars falling off the road until we drove through the areas where you could just fall off the side of the road...lol
