France, especially Alsace and the Pyrenees. Would like to try NZ, I've been told its great. All the New Zealanders I've met/worked with have been so friendly, my flying instructor from NZ was so laid back it was untrue.

Of the (relatively few) countries I've driven in : Scotland.

Fantastic scenery and roads much less filled with idiots and also generally better surfaced than in England.

I'm needing to change me specs. I thought it said "favourite country to live in..."

No, the best country to drive in is my own - Scotland. Brilliant roads and generally low in congestion. Locally I can recommend the A75 from Dumfries through to Stranraer - 78 miles of superbly surfaced roads with quite outstanding scenery. Not much in the way of Gatsos either.

I voted for France since that's the only country - including 'other' - that has a Col de Joux Plane in it...

Zooming through the bends on the way up from Samoens, then down the other side to Morzine... Heaven.

:cool: :cool: :cool:

Another vote for scotland here,

I just love the roads in North Fife and long runs up the west coast in early spring are just stunning...

SImes.

Love France B-Road for a good test drive, but the ultimate place to drive is...

North Pole, because the penguins don't issue Speed tickets!!!!

I thought Switzerland hates the motorcar!

Limited experience for me I'm affraid. UK & France plus holiday driving in Kefalonia (usually in a little Matiz hire car which is always interesting given the size of the hills and the depth of the potholes in someplaces). :)

Based on this experience, I would have to say the UK. Hoping to put this to the test next summer as considering Italy!!!! :eek:

Bonnie Scotland for me too :cool: I haven't got much to compare it to (only ever driven in southern Spain & Canaries outside of the UK) but compared to overcrowded English roads it's a driver's dream :cool: :cool:


EDIT: nope, I tell a lie - I've driven a fair bit in Paris about 15 years ago when I was just a skint student with little driving experience, absolute feckin chaos it was. FUN, but chaos lol...

France, and in particular Brittany - the roads were in excellent order and empty. I also drive down to Le Mans every year and I am always amazed at how smooth the toll roads are, there is not a ripple or bump. How do they do it?
