Maud wrote:I think it was seven years last May that the roundabout appeared in Sitia Mixos, so you are not far out with your guess. I only know as we drove there in a friend’s car from the south coast to have a few days holiday in the East. I had not driven the car previously and has taken over the driving after a lunch stop in Elounda.
My excuse is that I that I am sure the car had a ‘sensitive clutch’ but as I drove in to Sitia I was confronted with an unexpected roundabout! All the other drivers looked as confused as me, so taking the initiative I drove on to it and stalled! By now I was getting a lot of ‘helpful ‘ advice from the passenger seat! The nice thing was that nobody sounded a car horn or looked cross. In fact everyone was laughing....with me rather than at me I felt!
I hope this story encourages you to get to grips with the driving soon Elena. Louise is correct. - Take your time. As for having your husband or someone else with you, I will leave that to you!!!
