Myrtle Beach Real Estate by Mirela

Wheels Through Europe...

The Smart Car, just enough room for two...  takes as much space parked the usual way, or sideways.

You haven't seen congestion until you drive Barcelona at 5pm on a Friday afternoon...   

 We saw the fanciest cars in Monaco and Cannes.   "007" really must party there; his cars are all over the place.

The dreaded roundabouts...  This is where the Spaniards think they're supposed to switch lanes.  (Next pix) Vienna is still sporting the carriage, but only on occasion.  Ah, romance...

Cool pics.  The SMART car is here in the US - but I will take my chances with a bigger car.

Mirela, I love the photo's! We haven't been to Spain yet but my husband drove in Rome and it was a nightmare with the little motorbikes weaving in and out of traffic. I love Europe!

So do I!  I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Driving there is an adventure.  Especially in Italy...  I watched a vehicle on three wheels attempt to enter the freeway there, at barely 15 miles per hour.  Ouch!  Those little scooters pull out of the driveway at twice that speed...

Mirela, thanks for the great pictures of "Wheels Through Europe."  I can't imagine driving in that tiny Smart Car and competing for the road with the many SUVs.

Hi all, since it is so expensive to get to Europe these days, just come to Boston and you can have that same driving experience. Small streets, one ways in the opposite direction, rotaries (roundabouts) and all of that fun. I have seen a couple of Smart cars on the streets here and it felt like I was back in Paris. With the parking around here it makes a lot of sense to have one.
