on the right!

After all these months of driving on the left, it is a bit scary to be on the road in Germany again.

The disorientation started at the airport. People walk on the right, not the left. You have to look right when dashing across the road to the distance train station only to find that your train connection leaves from Track 1 in the underground station.

Getting behind the wheel, clutching it with white knuckles I realized that I had become fully acclimatized to driving in the UK. I wanted to stay on the left. Main roads are not an issue, they are marked fairly clearly, but the smaller side roads where there is room only for a car and a half…. something else.

At least I didn’t go try to turn the wrong way around a traffic circle…..
