27 Oct Auto -Tourists – everywhere we have a road!
For auto tutorism, by and large there are no boundaries. If you have a faithful iron horse, the ability to drive a car, a driver’s license, a small amount of money and a desire to see the world – you can safely become a car vehicle. At first about “horse”. Your iron friend should be hardy, capable of overcoming more than one thousand kilometers and, preferably, not break in the way. If you are going to travel a family, and at the same time do not want to “bother” about housing, then, preferably, to take care not only about the car but also about the trailer. Of course, you will have to spend money: on gasoline, on the parking lots, for food, on hotels, for visiting museums, exhibitions, shopping shopping (as without it), etc.D. But still, this amount will be much less, in comparison with the one that you would spend when buying a ticket to a travel company.
You need to worry about the route in advance: stock up on a car atlas, ask on forums, sites about roads, hotels, gas stations. Think at which points you better stop for the night. For example, if you go to St. Petersburg, but for several days you are going to admire the beauties of Peterhof, then it would be nice to find out which Peterhof hotels can accept you during your trip and at what prices. After all, returning every day after an excursion to St. Petersburg-it will be an extra waste of money and time.
When traveling in your own car, you will not depend on any guides, administrators, vouchers, and you can stop where you want, when you want and see exactly what you dreamed about. Make a plan of excursions. Ask your friends or a reliable “assistant” in all matters – the Internet, where to visit Moscow, which museums to visit in Novgorod, Riga or Kyiv, how to plan an excursion route along Lviv, what to look at St. Petersburg St. Any city, whatever you choose for your car travel, probably has more than one attraction. And, as experienced auto tutorists advise, in large cities it is better to get from one attraction to another with the help of urban transport – metro or buses, leaving your car in the hotel parking. After all, no matter how you study the Atlas, you are unlikely to be able to avoid traffic jams while sitting at the wheel of your car, not knowing the “secret” driveways through courtyards and lanes. Is it worth it to waste time intended for excursions to stand in traffic jams?
And yet, if your path will lie across the border or several boundaries, then you must take care of the visa (transit, tourist) and insurance. It would also be nice, if not to study, then at least view the rules of the movement of those countries to which you are heading to avoid fines and troubles.
