The Blue Bus

Transportation in England was in a blue Ford Transit 15 passenger van. Powered by a four cylinder diesel engine, it buzzed along for over 700 miles during our five day trip. Right hand drive, with a five speed manual transmission, it was an interesting challenge to gauge shift patterns while trying to figure out which direction to take out of a roundabout. Roundabouts take the place of traffic lights in most places in England. Their effective use is critically dependent on the courtesy of other drivers. Fortunately, driving in England is an exercise in courteous, well mannered motoring.
