Driving In Sweden

Driving in Sweden…is exactly like playing Mario Kart. Only instead of having to dodge bananas and shells, you are dodging Swedish drivers, traffic cameras, roundabouts, and trees in the middle of the road. Seriously. Cruising along nicely at 110, and then all of a sudden there is a roundabout in the middle of nowhere and you drop down to 50. Or, while driving through a town all of a sudden the road splits because there is a tree in the middle of it.
And Swedish drivers- I will try be nice. I can’t decide what you prefer- riding my ass even though I’m going over the speed limit; or going exactly the speed limit until a passing zone opens up and then not letting anyone pass.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention that on smaller roads there are no traffic lines or striping. It’s like a giant game of Chicken!
The great news is, by the time I return to the US after this year I’ll be the best Mario Kart player of all time!
