The Most Romantic Sunsets in the World

Many people will agree that a beautiful sunset is a good way to end the day. The dreamy quality it produces when it swathes everything in an amber glow is enough to make you swoon over your partner. However, as most of us know, though there is only one sun, the ambience and the surroundings must be taken into consideration. The real romantics have searched the world over just to find the right setting.

Naturally, a good view, meaning a clear, unobstructed one, is on top of the list. A wide expanse where the sun is directly over a sea or desert may be ideal to some, while other prefer the contrasts offered by a landscape of mountains, temples, or even buildings, which can highlight the setting of the sun. Even climate plays a role, as warmer places can bring out the best glow, and a shower prior to sunset will cleanse the skies of dust that can lessen the vividness of the colors.
Wherever you go, even if you dont get a chance to see an amazing view of the sunset right away, the best part is that you can always try again the next day.

Ayers Rock in Northern Territory, Australia

The Most Romantic Sunsets in the World

There is a huge red rock in Australias northern desert called the Uluru. Stunning as the sunset view is, the Uluru manages to upstage it. Steve Strike, a local photographer, suggests that to get the best view, head on to Sunset Strip-a picnic area found in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta national Park. And the best time to go is between May to October, as there are clouds in the sky which reflect the light from the rock which seems to glow.

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.
