comment How crowded is Iceland in summer?
I've been in June, July, August, September & October! We usually stay in the same farm house so know the owners well. They quite often get people turning up on the day to try to get accommodation, in June, Sept & Oct they were often able to fit them in. In July & August they were fully booked for weeks on end. However, there are several other alternatives nearby. It depends on your personality - if I didn't know where I was due to stay I'd find it quite stressful. When we've needed to find somewhere to stay in another part of Iceland we've looked on farmholidays.is

comment Where is a tripod allowed from high up in New York City?
I don't know of any buildings. One idea might be to stay at a hotel in a sky scraper and take the time-lapse out your room window

comment How do you drive a British car? Is it with the left hand and foot or right?
There are some classic cars which have a different pedal arrangement, but this is not something you will come across in a rental car

comment Why do you need to take out your laptop from your bag during airport security checks?
I agree with the avoid confusion. When I flew from the UK to Iceland last I had lots of chargers (phone, laptop *2, GPS, camera etc) in my bag. I took all the actual devices out, but the bag was pulled aside for screening. When one of the security personnel asked what to look for the reply was "There's lots of wires in there"

comment How to easily switch to driving on the other side of the road?
I agree, just do it. I live in the UK but spend quite a bit of time in Europe with work. Because of that I've had days where I've started driving on the right (in a LHD car) and finished driving on the left (in a RHD car), which was fine. The only time I've got confused is switching from the RHD to LHD car whilst having to drive on the right,and joining a road in the middle of nowhere with no signs. Thankfully I was corrected quickly.

comment What are the various types of tickets for Empire State Building?
I've just got back from a trip to NY, and I did Top of the Rock during daylight, and the Empire State at night. The combination worked really well as the city is impressive at both times.
