Yes indeed, driving in Britain can be quite the long, drawn out process. Unless you are near a motorway. Even then, a motorway can seem more like a gigantic parking lot. And thus, with little choice and with no satellite navigation, I encountered the occasional mystery roundabout. This would be the roundabout where I'm expecting to see a name of a place I've mapped out. Only to find that the roundabout indicates I'm heading for 'Upper Lower Piggy Bottom'. This means I end up going around and around and around the roundabout until I decide to follow that very slow moving tractor.
For the next few miles, I'm stuck behind a tractor, going uphill, on a narrow, winding road. There is now a long line of cars behind me. Finally, there is a safe opportunity to pass the tractor. Just as I'm about to pass the tractor, the driver behind me overtakes me and the tractor. I still have time to overtake and now I'm starting to accelerate to an amazing 40 miles per hour. Then I get stuck behind a motorhome, going uphill, on a narrow, winding road.
