Driving on the right (wrong) side of the road

When I was in the USA last month my husband and I hired a car and drove the terrifying and notorious ‘road to hana’ in Maui, Hawaii. It was a terrifying experience, but I am so glad we did it and was surprised how quickly we acclitised to being on the wrong side of the car and road. It did make for some interesting moments when we got home though (no sweetie, in Perth we drive on the left!).

I think driving on the wrong side of the road is something we all have to experience once and according to a new study commissed by GPS brand Navman, most of you feel the same way. The study showed Australians love to drive and being in a foreign country will not stop us. An overwhelming 83% of those surveyed said they would drive on an overseas trip if a car was available and nearly half would do so regardless of which side of the road the cars were on.

What do you think? Have you driven on the wrong side of the road and what was your experience like? Terrifying or exhilarating? Challenging or a piece of cake?
