Drive Safe In Florida

If you’re planning to take a trip to Florida from the UK, renting a car can be a good idea to help you explore, however driving in another country can be very daunting.

Be safe

Make sure that you are alert. As you know they drive on the opposite side of the road, which may not be a problem while driving on a straight, but may become difficult when pulling out of a junction or when you are tired. When driving, most cars will lock there doors automatically when you are travelling fast enough, the gear shifts are all automatic as well, so make sure you get to know the car before you set off, save yourself from any panic later on when driving.

When parking up, be mindful of where you are. Park in a well lit area if you can at night, park in the more populated areas so you’re not alone when you want to return to your car. Always keep valuables well out of sight, either in the glove compartment or in the boot. If you park during the day, try and find a shaded area for your car, the sun in Florida is of course a lot harsher than that in the UK. If you’re with your children, don’t leave them in the car unsupervised.

If you travelling along a dark or deserted road and you need to talk to a stranger in another car, for example if you’ve had a slight knock and need to exchange information, then try and get them to follow you to somewhere where there is other people, before you get out and talk to them.

The law

If it rains in Florida (it’s something we all dread when we’re on holiday) then you must have your lights on with your wipers as it is compulsory.

The police shouldn’t be feared, as like in the UK, they are there to protect the safety of everyone. And if you adhere to the rules, then you will have no problems. If you are pulled over, let the officer approach you, you must not get out of your vehicle. The driver of the car must carry at all times the rental documents and a valid license to drive; police will request to see them on the spot. In Florida and in America in general, there are speed restrictions, all roads have a maximum speed limit, but be aware that some roads also have a minimum speed limit. Failing to obey these limits will subject you to an on the spot fine. Alcohol and driving is extremely strict in Florida, you’re not allowed it on show in the vehicle. Driving under the influence will come at a heavy price, so don’t take the risk.

There are special rules for yellow school buses in the US, when one stops and you’re on a single carriage road, then traffic in both directions must also stop until the bus has started moving again. You don’t have to stop if you are on the other side of a dual or more carriage way road.

Kyrenia Car Hire Tips – an Ideal Location for a Northern Cyprus Car Hire

Kyrenia Car Hire Tips – an Ideal Location for a Northern Cyprus Car Hire

During the hot summers in Northern Cyprus, one of the most popular destinations is the beautiful harbor town of Kyrenia, easily accessible with your Northern Cyprus car hire. Here in this idyllic setting, sea breezes combine with the coolness of the nearby mountains to create an ideal summer resort.

Kyrenia Car Hire Driving Rules, drivers from the United Kingdom will feel at home on the road with their Northern Cyprus car hire because, like the UK, the traffic flow here is also on the left side of the roads. If you will be driving with children in the car you should be aware that children under the age of five are not permitted to be in the front seat of the car. And children between the ages of five and ten must be wearing seatbelts if they are riding in the front seat of the car.

The laws pertaining to driving while under the influence of alcohol are very strict in Northern Cyprus. Drunk-driving laws will be enforced if you are found to have 50 mg of alcohol or more for every 100 ml of breath. If you are arrested for drunk-driving here you will be subject to a large fine and will likely spend the night in a detoxification cell.

Kyrenia Car Hire Speed Limits, speed limits in the area may be posted in both kilometers per hour or miles per hour. On the highway the speed limit is 100 kph (60 mph). You should be aware that there is also a minimum speed of 65 kph (40 mph) that may be enforced on the highway as well. On smaller back roads the speed limit is 60 kph (37 mph).

In Northern Cyprus, the areas where the main road enters the urban area are known as “build-up areas” and the speed limits in these areas are 50 kph (31 mph). The boundaries of these urban areas are not always clearly marked and there may be policemen dressed in khaki uniforms with radar devices watching for speeders. These radar spots are often set up on weekend nights, especially on the western side of Kyrenia near the military base there. If ticketed, you will have 15 days to pay your fine at the local police station. If the ticket is not paid your name may be placed on a list at the airport and your departure could be delayed. Although the fines may seem low, do not fail to pay them on time.

Kyrenia Car Hire Parking and Road Tips,in Kyrenia parking signs are poorly marked but, because of this, you will often be politely warned if a local policeman notices that you are attempting to park your Northern Cyprus car hire in a prohibited area. Car parks in this area are generally marked as “Oto Parks”.

On maps and highway signs, roads are marked according to their grade; from A to F. An “A” road is the highest quality, normally a four-lane divided highway. “B” roads are also major roads but they are not divided. “E” and “F” roads are usually narrow two-lane roads or single-lane roads with sharp edges and restricted visibility. It would be best to try to avoid these rough, narrow roads with your Northern Cyprus car hire.

Kyrenia Car Hire Sites to See,one of the best sites in Kyrenia is the harbor on the northeast side of the city. The harbor dates back to the 10th century BC but its current shape was created under Venetian rule. Beginning around 1489 it was reinforced to prevent invasions. An imposing castle guards one side of the harbor entrance and a Marine Martyr’s Monument on the opposite side was used to guide sailors entering the harbor. In ancient times a sturdy chain was stretched across the entrance to prevent enemy ships from entering.

Overlooking and dominating the harbor is the Kyrenia Castle. The original structure is believed to have been built here in the 7th century. In 1491 the Venetians captured the castle and occupied Kyrenia. The city and the castle were surrendered to the Ottomans in 1570 and remained under Ottoman control until the 1800s. At hat time the British took over control of the island. Inside the castle you’ll find a small Byzantine chapel and a ship wreck museum.

Just 5 km from Kyrenia, and easily reached with your Northern Cyprus car hire, is one of the most beautiful examples of Gothic architecture to be found in all of Cyprus. Bellapais Abbey is a former monastery that was built at the end of the 12th century and is now one of the most famous architectural sites in Northern Cyprus. The stunning mountain village where the abbey is located adds another glorious visual element to your visit here.

 Kyrenia is a great city in North Cyprus and you should hire a car if you want to say I have been to Kyrenia. North Cyprus car  hire firms can be found

Alternatives: Backpacking Camping Gear

Alternatives: Backpacking Camping Gear

Backpacking camping gear requires a lot of research and hands on experience in order to decide what gear is the right pick for any particular backpacker. If a hiker is just going on a day trip where he is hiking out and back, maybe cooking a meal on the way, but is not staying overnight, is going to need much different supplies than a hiker going on a week-long camping trip.

The best way to choose backpacking camping gear is to try it out beforehand. Borrowing camping gear from a friend or renting it from an outdoor supply shop is a good way to get a feel for the best backpacking gear. Everyone has a different preference about the type of tent they like, sleeping bag they love to snuggle in, and stove to cook their favorite camping meal

What Are the Options?

The main items in backpacking camping gear are the tent, sleeping bag and camp stove. There are several different types of tents out there. When choosing backpacking camping gear, the tent has to be totally rain proof. The fly must come all the way down to the ground no matter what type of tent or what size is decided upon. That way, items that the backpacker does not want to store inside of the tent, but must stay dry can be stored under it, plus rain in a windy storm does not get blown up under the fly and through the screen.

Most backpackers choose at least a two man tent even if they camp alone because, although it weighs slightly more than a one-man, it gives additional comfort since there is room for supplies in the tent as well. Sleeping bags also give a variety of choices when choosing backpacking camping gear.  One choice has to do with the style of the bag itself.  Some taper at the bottom so that there isn’t much room to move down in the leg area.

There are others that provide ‘mummification’ around the face area so that the head can be almost totally enclosed like a cocoon. The filling in different bags is different as well, such as down or a synthetic material. Each bag is also rated according to the temperatures that can be withstood inside of the bag. That must be taken into consideration when buying a bag so that even in the coldest conditions the camper can remain warm.

Finally, stoves have a lot of discussion in backpacking circles as to which one is best. There are some stoves that can be made at home and others that are quite complex. Some run on alcohol, while others run on gas or tablets.  There are some stoves that do not heat water very quickly at all, to the point of not being able to melt snow in cold enough conditions. The main thing to consider is the types of weather conditions that the camper will encounter when camping and choose the stove appropriately.
