Whether you're traveling across a state or around the world, questions about locations, travel times, and anything related to traveling should be asked in this category. Happy traveling!

Which is the longest beach in the world?

Reaching around 150 miles in length, the world’s longest beach is the Praia do Cassino Beach in Brazil. This beach is not only long but beautiful, known for its white sand and hospitable locals. At this beach you won’t miss warm temperatures, as it remains hot for most of the year. Beach-goers are able to enjoy plenty of water activities if they do not only want to relax. Praia do Cassino is Portuguese for Casino Beach and while you walk from the Rio Grande seaport to the border with Uruguay you may have enough time to think about the naming.

What does hypocaust mean?

It is Latin for Under (Hypo) Heat (Caust)

It was the Roman method of underfloor heating.

A hypocaust (Latin hypocaustum, Greek hypocauston) was an ancient Roman system of underfloor heating, used to heat houses with hot air. The word derives from the Ancient Greek hypo meaning "under" and caust-, meaning "burnt" (as in caustic). The Roman architect Vitruvius, writing about the end of the 1st century B.C., attributes their invention to Sergius Orata, but this is not fully confirmed.

Hypocausts were used for heating hot baths (thermae), houses and other buildings, whether public or private. The floor was raised above the ground by pillars, called pilae stacks, with a layer of tiles then a layer of concrete then another of tiles on top; and spaces were left inside the walls so that hot air and smoke from the furnace would pass through these enclosed areas and out of flues in the roof, thereby heating but not polluting the interior of the room. Ceramic box tiles were placed inside the walls to both remove the hot burned air, and also to heat the walls. Rooms requiring the most heat were placed closest to the furnace, whose heat could be increased by adding more wood to the fire. It was labour-intensive to run a hypocaust as it required constant attention to tend the fire, and expensive in fuel, so it was a feature of the villa and public baths.

Where is the world's largest corn silo located?

A "silo" is normally used for the storage of fodder such as corn silage or haylage. However, if you meant the largest grain bin, the largest one I know of is in Arthur, Iowa, USA. It has a diameter of 135 feet, a peak height of 131 feet, and holds over 1.2 million bushels of grain corn. See the related link below.

Electrical Wiring

What electrical converter do you need for Mexico?

Most places in Mexico adhere to the NEMA 1-15 (2 flat pins) standard. Some others use the American-adopted NEMA 5-15, which includes the third, ground pin. If you are from the U.S. you shouldn't have any trouble to plug your appliances/electronics, but in case your appliance has three pins, you should bring a converter just to be on the safe side.

If you have the European Standard or any other type of connector, you should buy a power converter, as the power grid uses a 110-120 Volt and most European appliances would not charge or work properly.

Definition of incentive and adhoc tour groups?

An "adhoc tour group" (also called "independent") describes people who end up traveling with each other by accident just because they wanted to see a particular tourist destination and they all happened to be going that way. They don't know each other when they board the plane.

An "incentive tour group" on the other handle, describes people who have an incentive (or reason) not just to travel, but to travel with each other. A business team who are going to a conference - a church group visiting Israel - a group of scientists attending a colloqium. These people do know each other before they start the trip.

At least - that's what I've found so far!

What is the safest form of travel?

If you are raising the issue of safe, then definitely air travel is the safest. Because

1. You can save your time easily. It means you have saved your life time.

2. You did not require to provide extra effort to travel so your energy would be intact.

4. Because the journey journey is more comfortable than train or bus or ship you would be more calmer than the bus commuter or the train or the ship.

5. And last but not least if accident occurs you are sure to die. So you can feel less pain than bus or train or ship commuters. :)

Car Rentals

Can a foreign national rent a car to drive around in and see Greece?

Online travel companies offer car rentals services in Greece. People still loves the gearbox and most rental cars will be manual shifting. This can be challenging to learn or remember when combined with Greece's winding mountain roads and narrow urban streets. But you'll pay extra for having an automatic transmission, and even if you book one in advance since numbers are limited, you may find that you don't get your selected car at the car rental agency desk. In 2018 Greece made it mandatory that foreigners renting cars have the International Driver's Permit. (EU citizens of the European Union can use their own licenses for driving in Greece). for great travel packages visit us at

When was the first day of spring 2009?

Spring comes in between the 19th to the 23rd of March and at different times. It changes on a yearly basis because the first official day of spring is the (Spring) Vernal Equinox. This is when the sun is directly above the equator. It rises due East and sets due West and does not do so on the exact same day every year, since the calendar is not exactly 365 precise days every single year.

In 2009, spring arrived on March 20; the sun was above the equator, and crossed to the northern hemisphere at approximately 11:47p.m.

The first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere this year (2009) was March 20. The equinox was at 5:48 GMT. In general, the four seasons correspond to the relative position of the sun to the earth. Meteorological determination of spring is calculated according to when the sun passes through the equatorial plane. When going from winter to spring, the sun is moving north; as soon as the sun crosses the equator, we call it spring. == == The above applies to places north of the equator.

"Spring", a time of melting and new growth, occurs about September-November in places south of the equator, e.g., Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Brazil...).

The official date of spring south of the equator (corresponding to the first official day of fall in places north of the equator) would be around September 20/21, depending on when the sun crosses the equator. Countries such as Australia and New Zealand, however, designate the first day of September as the official first day of spring.
