This is why I've yet to go to Ireland since most vacation packages I've seen involve renting a car and driving from village to village, which seems great, but left side driving coupled with left handed shifting (what? first is AWAY from you?? :wtf: ) have left me :notsure: about doing it.

Your trip sounds great :doe: Hope you have a great time and you better post mucho pics.
Irish roads are amazing BTW.
They look fantastic.

Yea that scares me a bit... and you have to shift with the left hand... That has got to be odd...

It is "winter" there but that just means 55-70 F

I guess I'll be seeing the "real" hobit house...
I have driven manual in Jamaica and Ireland, manual both times. Left side driving is NBD. You get used to it quickly.
:dat: I rented a car in England, drove it all over the place, it wasn't a big deal. The only issue I really had at all was drifting to the left as I naturally align my body to the line on my left. Shifting was fine.

in4pics, Australia/NZ seem so awesome.

Never been outside the continental US... but NZ is definitely on the list of places I'd love to go.
you haven't lived yet. Try Mexico or Germany. I always wanted to go to Australia, but I need to find enough to actually justify going there.
