I think it's Switzerland or Sweden. Maybe Norway? It's one of the Scandinavian countries.

that road is awesome. not that it has to be a mountain but why can't we have a road thats even remotely close to as twisty as that.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

OK dumb yank question. Do you not have a center line over there or is that one way? Just curious as we have enough problem keeping them on their side with the line.

Must obey the sheep dog

Here is my stupid Euro answer Yes, most roads over here are separated by a line in the center of the road.. Depending on how wide the road is. Not sure excactly how narrow the road has to be before it has no center line..

The roads on this pass are "two way", but when two cars meet on the east side, at least one of them will have to either back up to a "meeting point" or drive onto the side of the road.

The big trucks had to take some of the tightest corners in several steps to get around..
