This feeling solidified when we moved to Germany, since the U-and-S-Bahn systems are fast and efficient. We made a point of getting an apartment in a neighborhood with access to pharmacies, grocery stores, restaurants, and as close as possible to an U-Bahn stop (we're literally 5 minute walk from one). Meanwhile, driving in Germany seemed terrifying. The rules are the road are different enough from the U.S. to be confusing. The streets are narrow and parking is often non-existent. The high-speed car thoroughfares in the center of the town looked daunting, German drivers appeared aggressive, and the autobahn with it's lack of speed limits? Forget it. I had no interest in driving here.
