DRIVING WHILE TRAVELLING ABROAD

For most of the carefree travellers, involving a travel company with their strict procedure on the visiting places may not be your cup of tea. You most probably would consider hiring a car instead, although this seem interesting it might come with a share of its discomforts, like getting on the wrong side with the traffic because you are travelling on the wrong side of the highway. Here is a list of things you should have;                                                                       

Driver’s Silence

A valid driving license is a crucial necessity in any country whether in Europe or a state in the United States. The international driving permit has its license translated into ten different languages. The legal driving age abroad is very crucial and authorities are always looking out for lawbreakers. Therefore, if you have teenagers planning on taking selfies behind the wheel, be certain to abide by the laws as well. Mostly, teens under the age of eighteen are not allowed to drive.

Insurance

  In case you are planning to use a rental car, always plan concerning your insurance coverage. Look into insurance tips regarding rental cars for detailed information. For example, the United States recommends all drivers intending or practically driving abroad secure insurance coverage similar to theirs. Every country has its insurance policies therefore, practically differs regionally or from country to country. Unless having international insurance coverage, then you are subject to the demands of the nation you intend to drive in.

Road Rules

A stereotype associated with driving abroad is that one can do as much of driving habits as one does at his homeland. Although one may not be so careless, there are regulations and details on driving abroad that may not occur to us. It is most common that one drives on the left lane of all roads in the UK, but little are people aware that the western region has the same blood- alcohol limit as the United States. The limit in the UK is at 0.08% while that of Sweden and Norway is at 0.02% making it 75% lower than that of the United States. Since alcohol drinking limits differ from country to country, a one-hour alcohol beverage drink at a restaurant in Minneapolis is still legal to allow someone behind the wheel. To get behind the wheel in Barcelona, you need a third of such a beverage drink whereas you need a mere less than a quarter of such to drive in Stockholm. This is a very important, as my friend from London was on the wrong side of the road when here in the US and decided he needed to go the the local Lowes hardware store.

Seatbelt

Another requirement while driving abroad is a seatbelt. Lack of such crucial necessities calls upon immediate fines or penalties as per road regulations within a given state. Countries such as France and Spain are well known to render fines on the spot if caught without a seat belt. Other parts of Europe requires one to drive on the right-hand side, hence, it is important for one to have sources  of information about road safety rules governing other nations . Knowing about this, helps one know when encroaching a different set of road regulations while driving.

Road etiquette

 A few other laws and customs that would get on your and land you into trouble are honking your horn aimlessly. It is advisable to use flashlights rather than honking a car horn while giving a directive such as overtaking ensuring that indicators are out.

Overtaking

Overtaking is another restricted issue while driving abroad, in most highways in the United States overtaking is allowed only under the stated speed limit. Overtaking carelessly would, therefore, see someone handcuffed or else fined. Speed limits are also regulated dependent on whether in the central business district, in the market, on the highway, on the outskirts of a city or in the countryside.

Now that you have read those simple travel guidelines, I look forward to seeing your smiles as you enjoy your perfect ride.…

How to cut together a travel video

Are you trying to piece together the many reams of video copies that you took during the last vacation to an impressive video? While you select the footage to use, you should consider the cuts that you can choose to have a creative travel video. This sounds technical, but it can be easy if you learn the types and how to apply them.

These are the various cuts:

1. Standard’ Hard Cut

A hard cut means cutting one clip to the other, and there is nothing special to be said about it. Even so, you need to know when and how you can use it to piece your travel videos. I bet you imagine that there is a distinct meaning which is associated with this type of cut. It is more important to note that viewers will not have time to note any changes that have changed between the two videos.

Due to this fact, hard cuts are used often within a specific scene of the travel video to cut if from one perspective to the next. You can also use them when you are changing views because it is possibly easy to do that.

2. Jump cut

This cut got this name based on the fact that they jump literally from one scene of the video to next and tends always to use the parts that are similar visually. This cut is tricky to use because of the fact noted above it can appear disjointed.

Even so, jumps can be used to make travel videos to achieve a specific purpose. It can be used to show the passage of distance or time. By using series or a single jump cut, you can propel the video from one location and also the whole video forward.

3. Cut on Action

The best way you can manage to mask a cut and make it seamless in your travel videos is to cut them in action. Basically what it entails cutting your video that the first clip and the second one can have the same effect. The work at the end of the first clip should feature at the opening of the second clip.

Viewers are likely to pay attention to the actual action and may not notice the cut. You can use this cut to shift the perspective of your travel videos in a way that is less noticeable than that of the hard cut.

4. L-cut and j-cut

While these are two different cuts, they are opposite of each other virtually. When using the L-cut, the audio played on the first clip continues as you shift to the second clip. When using the J-cut, the audio playing from the first clips stops and that for the second one starts before switching to it as the first clip plays.

When making travel videos, you use these cuts if a conversation is involved.

5. Montage

This is a technique whereby several clips get cut simultaneously, and it is used in travel videos to show the passage of distance or time. If you chose to use this cut when piercing your travel videos, you should pay attention to the pace in the changes.

Conclusion

It doesn’t sound like an easy task, but if you learn what it entails, it is easy to apply any of the cuts above.
