Top 8 Driving Routes out of the U.S.

For most travelers, its not really about the destination. Its about the journey. This is never truer for anyone else than for those who love to drive. Some people find that driving actually relaxes them. If youre planning to fly out of the U.S. and rent a car to explore the landscape, these are the best driving routes to take.

Baja California Sur, Mexico

Top 8 Driving Routes out of the U.S.

While this driving route is not ideal for those who are only used to casual driving, people who love challenges will find this interesting. Filled with narrow, two-lane highways, adventurous drivers will be kept on the edge of their seats while traversing this path. The best road to take is Highway 1. However, word has it that it has plenty of potholes. Youll need a pretty sturdy vehicle for this drive.

Despite the challenges, youll be rewarded with great sights and weather. Even if youre an excellent driver, though, you shouldnt try to take this route at night. Staying well below 50mph will also keep you away from accidents.

Northern Tunisia

Top 8 Driving Routes out of the U.S.

Its no Nurbrugring circuit, but Northern Tunisia certainly has entertaining roads by the mountain that are worth driving through. Avoid this route if youre driving a fragile, exotic looking sports car, though, because youre most likely going to encounter extreme roads. While sometimes they come with warning signs, most of the curbs dont, so caution is necessary.

P15 and P17 of this route are always good places to be in, although sometimes, the road quality here changes too. The only downside here is that locals tend to drive slow-and thats an understatement. You can probably entertain yourself with the unique scenery while waiting for the car in front of you to move faster.
There are a lot of Roman villages along the road, too, so you can consider the trip an educational one. Who knows, you might just find something interesting enough to take a picture of along the way.

Western Cape, South Africa

Top 8 Driving Routes out of the U.S.

If you think that the only way to traverse the Safari is through a Land Rover, think again. Despite the commercialized image, thanks to Hollywood movies, African roads are actually pretty well-maintained. The N1, N7 and N2 (Western Cape) are exceptionally impressive, although top speeds are kept at 75mph. Just watch out for animals that may be crossing the roads.

Taking this route can be therapeutic especially along the Cape of Good Hope and the South Atlantic. It may even remind you of the Mediterranean. The climate is also quite similar.

M8, Scotland

Top 8 Driving Routes out of the U.S.

If youre a driving enthusiast, its most likely that youve explored almost all if the UKs challenging roads. However, have you tried driving in Scotland? If you havent, youre missing out on a lot. Scotland has a pretty diverse landscape, and between the Highlands, the Southern Uplands, and the Central Lowlands, youre sure to have a generous share of challenging roads.

A mountain pass tagged by the locals as Rest and Be Thankful is even notorious for making vehicles overheat at least once while their ascending. While the M8 is the main highway, youd probably want to explore its secondary arteries more. Youll be surprised at what youll find-from an old Scot castle to mind blowing twists on the road. Just make sure you come with a trusty map on your dashboard.

Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Handing out homemade beer at a liquor store, Tom and Athena Seefurth, chefs based in Illinois, surprised several people with the smell of their beers-from garlic to tomatoes. They are also the inventors of “pizza beer.” They thought of creating beer that will match their favorite dishes perfectly, and so came up with pizza beer.

Like these two, people all over the world have created different kinds of liquors, which have become worldwide traditions. Wines have been used during the ancient times as medicine, and though people now no longer use them as such, the recipes have survived, and people continue to enjoy them. When in a foreign country, knocking down that glass of strange liquor is also a great way for you to get to know the culture of the people.

Today, experimentation with liquor is done by enterprising people in order to compete with and add flavor to the bottles and bottles of liquor we have become used to. This is a list of some of the strangest liquors you can find in the world.

Pizza Beer in Illinois, USA

Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Pizza being their favorite dish, Tom Seefurth and Athena Seefurth created pizza beer in 2006. Chopping pounds and pounds of wheat crust, tomato, oregano, garlic and basil for their beer, they have sold bottles to people who have made this their favorite. Dont think that there are actual chewable ingredients inside your drink, though, as the ingredients are well filtered, leaving just the essence of pizza. You can find this at Sams Wine and Spirits, or at Top Shelf Wine and Spirits. It is available from over 200 retailers and restaurants across Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Wine from Snake Bile in Vietnam

Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Feeling gutsy? Try this fascinating drink served in specialty restaurants around Vietnam. The preparation itself is swoon-worthy, as a person to slice open a living cobra to get its gall bladder, and pours the bile to the rice wine. Locals swear by its health benefits, and that it makes men virile. Huang Rung Restaurant in Ho Chi Minh serves this, and so do others that specialize in exotic meats.

Chicha in Peru

Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Chicha or corn beer was drunk during Incan ritual festivals and sacrifices. Today, though no longer used in rituals, Chicha still follows the traditional ways of preparation: women from villages in the Andean region chew the maize and then spit the pulp in earthenware jars filled with warm water, where it is left and stored to ferment. The result is a milky, yellowish liquid served in gourds that are hollowed out. Variations of this drink include pineapples, yucca, and plantains. You can find this drink in chicherias along Cuzco and Lima, mostly in central markets and rural Andean villages. To spot a freshly-made chicha for sale, a red or white flag hung above the doorway of a house will be your signal.

Lizard Wine in China

Weirdest and Most Unique Vending Machines in the World

Young and old alike have been fascinated with vending machines. Like mini convenience stores, these are great when youre feeling quite hungry, and theres no store nearby. Just feed the machine a bill or some coins, press a button, and out comes your chosen snack.

You might find I interesting to know that the first vending machine actually dispensed holy water, of all things. Hero of Alexandria devised this coin-operated machine in the first century, and it was only followed during the nineteenth century, when postcards and gums were sold.

A snack isnt all there is nowadays, as more and more people are beginning to realize the convenience and advantages that this machine has to offer. If vending machines used to offer sodas and little packets of biscuits and chips, today, you might be a little surprised at whats being offered in these incredible machines. Japan tops the quirkiness factor when it comes to vending machines, dispensing underwear to noodles. The ever-famous Lobster Game, similar to those machines where you try to catch a stuffed toy through a crane, gives you fifteen seconds to catch a lobster. The US has copied it by creating their own Maine Lobster Game.

Gold Bars in Abu Dhabi, Bergamo, Frankfurt, and Moscow Airports

Weirdest and Most Unique Vending Machines in the World

Stuck in the airport with nothing to do? Try the Gold to Go vending machines. Whoever thought that buying a special gift for that special someone in your life is actually easy, dispensed from a vending machine? Think gold is too common? You can also buy South African Krugerrands, Canadian maple-leaf coins, and that one-hundred dollar, one-ounce Australian kangaroo coin. Naturally, the prices change, depending on real-time prices. A gram of gold bar wrapped in a beautiful gift box costs around fifty dollars.

Fresh Pizza in Italy

When in Italy, it is but natural to eat pizza. Lets Pizza machines make it easier for you to get this national specialty. It is actually quite natural that the country where pizza originated from would actually come up with vending machines of pizzas! (Or perhaps theyre just tired of serving too many pizzas to hungry tourists.) Found in some malls and airports, these machines can make a pizza from scratch in less than three minutes. You can choose your toppings by pressing a button, then peek into the window to see the mixing and kneading of dough, the adding of the toppings and finally, baking.

Live Lobsters in US

Fun and quirky, everyone wants to try this game-catch a lobster in less than fifteen seconds and its yours to bring home or have the restaurant prepare for you so you can eat it fresh. For only three dollars, you get to play (and possibly) eat! Scattered from Maine to California, many of these machines are located in Florida, at restaurants like Bubbas Roadhouse and Saloon, and Arizona Pizza Company.

Raw Eggs in Japan and California

Weirdest and Most Unique Vending Machines in the World

At Glaum Egg Ranch, for only three dollars you can get 24 free-range chickens, with a complimentary show performed by stuffed chickens (as in stuffed toys, not the real ones). Forget the supermarket; eggs dont come any fresher than this! First introduced in Japan, Glaum Egg Ranch just outside Santa Clara followed suit.

6 new fascinating architectures around the world

Today, architecture has changed significantly; no longer is a building a simple structure on the urban landscape; it now has something that makes it stand out: texture. Gone are the days when people only waited for the tallest building. Architecture continues to challenge its boundaries, giving us new types of structures that are appealing inside and out. Here are some of the most interesting structures-or wonders-of the world.

Guangzhou TV Tower in Guangzhou, China

6 new fascinating architectures around the world

What makes this structure most interesting is that unlike many other wonderful structures in the world, this has the features of a woman. This makes it known as the twisted lady, or the supermodel. Two thousand feet high, it is certainly an imposing structure. At the “waist” part (560 feet off the ground), a staircase replaces floors and walls, so that visitors can see the texture of the structure. Inside it are also a couple of rotating restaurants where you can dine with a view, several shops, as well as a movie theatre. If you plan to visit and stay nearby, the Grand Hyatt in Guangzhou is a 23-story hotel in the central business district. It costs around $175 to $230 for a stay for two.

Soccer City in Johannesburg, South Africa

6 new fascinating architectures around the world

In a city where soccer is sacred, it is but natural to expect a stadium that reflects the citys sport. 2010 is the year that an African nation will host the tourney, so Architect Bob van Bebber thought it only right to create a huge, ninety-four-thousand-seater stadium where fans from all over the world can come together. Its interesting design is actually based on a calabash-something that has been turned into a beer stein, a musical instrument, and even a motorcycle helmet. This gourd can be found all over the continent, and its versatility in use speaks much of the unity-amidst-diversity theme. Outside, its earth colors are set into fire by lights. This makes for an amazing place where people off all ages and cultures can come together, relax and share their stories with each other. But it is not just meant for this particular event, as the stadium serves as a symbol, and hope, for the future.
For a brief stay, Athol Place is a quaint ten-room hotel whose gardens are blooming beautifully with purple jacarandas in spring. A suite costs around $320 to $450. Wandies serves a buffet of salads, muttons and dumplings, and their entrees cost $6 to $11.

Top 12 Weirdest Traffic Laws Across the Globe

The basic of traffic laws is to stop when you need to stop, and remember speed limits if you are stepping on it. They sound pretty simple until you learn of the strangest rules that are strictly followed on the road.

Doing the Hook Turn in Australia

Being on the wrong side of the road is already scary when you are driving in Australia but wait until you need to do a hook turn in Melbourne. That will be more difficult that usual for us travelers but it is pretty simple for the locals.
Normally, you will be on the right late if you want to make a right turn but if you have to do a hook turn, you have to go to the outer left lane then on green you have to make a hard right to go where you intend to go. The hook turn was designed so the traffic on the central business district of Melbourne will not block the lines of the tram.

There are quite a number of intersections in the CBD where hook turn is strictly required. Be ready for a steep penalty of $75 if you are on the wrong portion of the road.

 

Environmental stickers in Germany

As 2010 kicked off, Germany implemented a strict rule that every car entering Cologne, Munich, Berlin, and about a few dozen more cities in the country. The stickers are priced between $7.50 and $30.

If you rented a car from France or Belgium and you are heading to Germany, make sure that you get the environmental sticker or you will be pulled over by the traffic warden. Failing to do so might cost you $60.
