I would like to learn, though, since it would make renting a car abroad a lot cheaper.
ive driven a few friends manual cars throughout life but never had one of my own. when it came time to drive around ireland for 11 days i got a manual toyota yaris, i think the second cheapest option, since the smallest would have been far too small for me (and the yaris was kind of tight).
the first city we went to, Cork, was like 80% brutal hills. i had a panic attack like two hours into the trip because i stalled so many times and had no idea how we were going to complete the rest of that trip. the rest of that day was rough but i figured out hills ok the next day and the rest was fine. now i’m looking forward to driving around some other country in a manual right hand drive car.
