Do not cross the street…

Many of you may know that my dh and I traveled to Ireland to visit our daughter several weeks ago. I’m sharing the wonderful Dave Barry post today about traveling to the UK. Enjoy!

“Do not cross the street in London. I cannot emphasize this enough without resorting to italics: Never attempt to cross a street in London. Over here, they drive on the left side, which means that you, as an American, never look in the correct direction, even though there are warning painted on the streets saying “LOOK RIGHT” and “LOOK LEFT” and sometimes: “YOU ARE LOOKING THE WRONG WAY, IDIOT AMERICAN.”

Note from author: This happened to us many times, as in constantly.

Below is one of the many Irish castles we visited:

    LOL. It does take some getting used to. I always look for the Look Left or Look Right signs as a precaution. I also take a couple of days getting used to sitting in the opposite seat in the car from what I’m used to. My dh does all the driving, at least so far — he lived in England for a while, so he adjusts quickly — but I imagine myself doing the driving, esp. the narrow lefts and wide rights. It’s a useful exercise for someone like me who is hopeless with right and left.

    My husband does ALL the driving. Those narrow streets are so difficult to navigate. Yikes!
