What does hypocaust mean?

A hypocaust (Latin: hypocaustum) is a system of central heating in a building that produces and circulates hot air below the floor of a room, and may also warm the walls with a series of pipes through which the hot air passes. This air can warm the upper floors as well.[1] The word derives from the Ancient Greek hypo meaning "under" and caust-, meaning "burnt" (as in caustic). The earliest reference to such a system suggests that the temple of Ephesus in 350 BC was heated in this manner,[2] although Vitruvius attributes its invention to Sergius Orata in c. 80 BC.[3] Its invention improved the hygiene and living conditions of citizens, and was a forerunner of modern central heating.

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!

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
