DRIVING IN EUROPE

Jump to last reply

I am OK with driving on the right, have logged over 25,000 miles in USA and Canada, but for some reason I haven't fully defined the thought of driving in Europe is scary. Smaller cars and foreign languages, I guess, plus SO many people.

We have agreed that we will drive in England but not in London; and in France but not in Paris. I would also like to drive from northern Switzerland to Rottweil, avoiding any autobahns on the way.

I find driving in the USA a breeze, well organised and signposted roads and polite drivers, so am very interested in American opinions of driving in Europe - especially France, Germany and Italy. As a no longer young Australian who is terrified of small cars this is something I am a bit worried about.
