Driving down the wrong side of the road

We arrived safe and sound after a pretty easy flight from Singapore to Frankfurt. As normal, we didn't get the car we ordered from the hire company, but they tell us it was an up-grade. Actually it's a Skoda Supurb, 6 speed manual, goes like a rocket and very comfortable. so no issues really. The drive from Frankfurt was pretty easy, but half of Europe's workforce must either be involved in planning roadworks or hiding behind barriers so they don't have to do them. Frieburg im Bresilau was our stop over on the southern edge of the Black Forrest. A quaint town, big cathedral in the centre currently being renovated. We went out for a bit of an adventure to nowhere in the car. Probably aged Jennie about 10 years. Trying to keep the car in the middle of the road was to say the least challenging. And the road got progressively narrower, the traffic coming the other way got faster, the bends got tighter and it poured with rain. Gulp. I think the conversation on the way back had a lot to do with whether or not we could hand the car back. Ha, the fun of travelling. We did wonder how the drive across Switzerland into Italy was going to go!
