Yup, moved here 5 years ago to get away from the rat-race and dreadful weather!
Parking has to be seen to be believed; across zebra crossings, on a roundabout, triple or quadruple parked, on the pavement, in bus stops, etc. Generally if you can't park directly outside where you want to go then you just abandon your car the closest you can regardless if that might inconvenience someone. Underground car parks are something else again! Last place I lived required you to stop half way down, reverse a bit and then creep around a corner that was so tight they had to channel into the concrete and earth to make it wider - unfortunately it got narrower with all the paint left every day
Sorry for the thread drift OP !!
