I visited the flats today, and apparently, other than the wet, public, watered area a couple inches deep, most of the dry flats I found were privately owned. I don't know if this is true for all of the flats, but you would have to do some research on public and private salt flat areas. Hope this provides some background info for you. If it doesn't hope you ...

There is a specific kind of registration (and insurance) in Germany for vehicles that will leave the country soon; you get a specific registration tag ('Zollkennzeichen'), with the last date allowed in the country on it. Basically, you buy normal insurance (like everyone in Germany would need), for pretty much the normal price, and it ends the day you want ...

If you really want to avoid the worst of the Connecticut and NYC traffic, or if you want to break up your trip in the middle, you could always use the Cross-Sound Ferry from New London, CT to Orient Point, NY (on Long Island.) The voyage takes about an hour and a half, and costs $55 (one-way) for a car & driver, $15 for each additional adult, and $6 for ...

The answer depends very much on your degree of risk aversion, and on how much of your "like to be early" buffer you are willing to lose to traffic or other delays en route. As Michael Hampton noted in a comment, the drive is almost entirely motorway, so depending on your driving habits and the traffic, you might be able to average 75 miles an hour (120 ...

As a general rule: If you can get there by bus, you can get there by car. There are of course cases where there are restrictions regarding private cars, but that's not the case for the places you're asking about. Steinsdalsfossen og Vøringsfossen are both on FV-7. Have a look at route plan in Google Maps to see how to get there. Folgefonna is large, and ...

I'm pretty certain your provisional licence does not have any validity anywhere outside of the UK. However, this site says you can rent without a licence if aged over 23. This site allows you to rent a 50cc moped if aged over 20 but must have had a car licence for 2 years. This site states: to drive a 50cc scooter in France, the driver must be at least ...

The answers posted are in line with my experience. I recently traveled in a 2014 Audi A6 3.0 TDI on a trip to pick up my daughter at college. Round trip was about 800 miles. On the roof was a Rhino Rack with oval shaped cross beams and on the rack was a mountain bike and Yakima box filled with items such as duffle bags, books, etc. Inside the car were ...

Google Maps now has this feature built-in: Start navigating from your current location by car: Click on the search button: Select a pre-defined POI type or search for something else: Voila! You now have a list of locations to visit, as well as how much time the visit would add to your drive.

Similar to @rvs's comment, I have also used "Tripadviser"'s app which gives you such feature. Wherever you are, just go to the app and you can choose what kind of attractions, ... you are interested in. Although, since it is mostly based on reviews and feedback, it may not be so informative for all locations. By the way, watch out for the battery usage on ...

If you want to rent a car, then the short answer is "Yes"! You'll be able to rent a car with an IDP from Pakistan. Then, if you want to drive your friends' car, you need to ensure that their car insurance contract is properly covering you as a driver which is apparently not really common there. If you have a residence permit, you'll need a UAE driving ...

Inner city vs between cities are two different things. The easiest driving is between cities; once you are out of the city center, streets and roads are usually better organized, larger, and straighter. Highway driving is more or less the same; on multi-lane highways, stay on the right side of the road unless passing. Inner city driving, depending on the ...

At first, I was surprised by the exit signs on the motorway. Shortly before an exit, you will see two signs, an arrow pointing upward/forward more-or-less above the left lane and an arrow curved to the right more-or-less above the right lane. Following that, there are also markings with a right-pointing arrow and the name of the exit, directly on the road ...

This is from personal experience. When driving across country in the south of Italy towards "City A" from "City B". I would see a sign that had "City A" marked on it, but the sign would be constructed such that it looked like an arrow pointing at 90 degrees to the direction of traffic - which implied to my non-italian mind that I should be turning in ...
