England, the only place besides the US.
I loved driving there! Plenty of Americans didn't but I thought it was fun and enjoyable.

Mexico, Canada, Bahamas, England, Wales, Scotland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Ireland.

UK countries hardest due to alternate side of road rules and very narrow B roads.

Germany and Spain have good roads, well marked, mostly considerate drivers.

Italy was hectic with some aggressive drivers (lots of horn honking is typical) and some lack of signage.

Mexico has good cuotas (toll roads). We lived there 5 years and knew to expect the unusual (horses with riders on roads with blind curves, goats grazing on median strips, etc.)

An expat friend told us there are two types of cars in Mexico: one can only go above 70 mph and the other that can only go under 25 mph

UK, US, and Canada.


I was fortunate in that, during my first two holidays in the US, I was a passenger in friends' cars, so that helped me get used to being on the wrong side of the road. Now I love to go on solo road trips in the US and Canada; however, I don't like driving in the dark, as I have great difficulty in orienting myself in urban areas in the dark (i.e. I get lost), and I'm not confident about turning right against a stop light.

Just like the frequent "how many countries have your traveled to" threads that pop up - I can't even remember them all.
I'm trying to even remember significant international driving events, not many:
-Charged by an Elephant in a park in S. Africa
-Put regular fuel in a diesel vehicle in Portugal (couldn't read the pumps, stupid mistake).

That's about it....

I have driven in the US, Iceland, and the Cayman Islands. I'm used to driving on the left but I prefer using left side driver cars when I do. It's the right side driver car controls that are harder to get use to than the fact that you need to remember to stay on the other side of the road.

I preferred driving in Brazil the most, simply because the roads/scenery is spectacular, even though the car I was driving was mediocre.

Italy and Japan.

Gets tough in Japan (drive to the left) when you get into the really tight streets (especially in the heart of Kyoto). I was convinced on more than 1 occasion that the on-coming car was going to side swipe me.
