SF north on PCH to the Oregon border, back on US-101.
Over the Sierras on I-50 and I-80 to Reno and Lake Tahoe, CA-89 (Carson Pass), CA-89 (Monitor Pass) and CA-120 (Tioga Pass). Tioga Pass hits 9200 ft above sea level before dropping down to the town of Lee Vining and Mono Lake on I-395. Logging roads in the Tahoe national forest north of I-80. Great camping, but be careful where you turn at night - you could end up in a logging clearing!
Sonoma, Mendocino and Napa.
Down to the Grand Canyon via historic Rte 66 (at least part of the way.....most of it is dusty, abandoned, and falling apart). Out to Canyon de Chelley and Canyon del Muerto on the Navaho reservation in New Mexico - and then down into the canyons and through, along and across the river along the bottom of the canyon. The White House ruins are awesome!
Seattle, and the Puget Sound area, then over the mountains to the Yakima Valley. Then up the road and across the Canadian border to Vancouver, BC.
Boston traffic is like Manila. And the area around Boston is pretty, picturesque and remarkably free of traffic.
New York City traffic is one big gridlock, and really big potholes! But the Hudson tunnel is cool! Upstate NY is rural and lazy - it encourages slow driving, except for a few mountain roads with lots of nice curves!
Florida is hot, humid and the drivers are old and slow!
Atlanta is just another big city. So is Portland. Norfolk is not so much a big city, and New Orleans - well, there was a hurricane two of the three days I was there so I just drove around the French Quarter. Cincinnati, OH and Lexington, KY are like Rochester, NY - little traffic, nice roads, easy driving. Denver downtown gives way to wide open spaces that invite speeding, but don't!
Tokyo is crazy. Hong Kong is just plain crowded but the drivers are civilized (at least they were until the influx of mainland Chinese! Taiwan - look out for those scooters! I'm afraid to drive in China!
The area around London is great to drive once you get used to being on the wrong side of the road, but London is nuts!
Paris drivers are like Manila drivers - I felt right at home. But driving through the backroads of Burgundy and the Loire Valley is an adventure - narrow roads through steep hills, with impressive chateaux and churches around every turn.
Roman drivers are crazy but actually not too bad!
The German autobahn is an experience not to be missed - you can't speed when there's no speed limit. Imagine going 150 mph - and getting passed by a Porsche GT2. Then imagine getting into a Ferrari 550 and passing a GT2 at 195 mph!
Finnish drivers (in Helsinki) are very civilized and very courteous. Danish drivers in Copenhagen are careful and considerate. Amsterdam - more bikes than cars!
I hope my driving adventures are not over!
