Italy - most. Had to drive back and forth from work and shopping.

Took turns driving thru Austria, Switzerland and Germany.

Oh, Canada too. Almost forgot. So many years ago.
USA, was a given (or so I thought)

Athens would be another story.

Living in Kuwait and have yet to drive here. But the drivers are very aggressive and bring driving styles from many parts of the goal making me wary of driving here. China was also pretty bad (I never drove there) but many drivers would make left hand turns from right lane and fail to yield.
I'm living and driving in Kuwait, it was intimidating at first but I've adapted to it and I seem like a regular aggressive driver. I've also driven in Canada, Thailand, Mexico, Saudi, Iraq, Spain. I passed on driving in most countries though.

Just in the US/Canada so far. Renting a car and driving around does not really make sense in most of Europe (due to their extensive rail/public transit network, lack of parking in city centers, and high gas prices) or Latin America (due to eratic driving conditions, risk of theft/car break in's, extensive bus network, etc) so I never really had to drive in other countries.

Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Japan, US. Japan was the worst. Horrible congestion and traffic in Tokyo metro. Driving on other side of road. When I returned to the states 2 years later. I had trouble driving on the US side for a few weeks.

We rent a car on almost every trip (exceptions are India, China, Japan and a few others). So I've driven in;

Argentina
Austria
Bermuda
Canada
Chile
Costa Rica
Czech Republic
Dominican Republic
England
France
Germany
Gibraltar
Hong Kong
Ireland
Italy
Jamaica
Mexico
Northern Ireland
Poland
Puerto Rico
Scotland
Slovakia
South Africa
Spain
St Maartin
St Martin
St Vincent and the Grenadines
Wales


The most difficult experience was in Rome because many of the street names look the same and it was before we had a GPS system. Most of the others were quite easy.
