1 The European city of Glasgow

It may sound strange to name the city of Europe as European Glasgow as if the rest of the Scottish cities were not. They are without a doubt but the architecture of Glasgow is so different from the rest that it seems taken from a central European country.

3 The Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast It is one of the most beautiful places in Europe and in turn one of the most crowded. In Easter and summer the roads become mousetraps where parking becomes an impossible mission. December is a good month to avoid all this, with all the tranquility that comes from not being able to bathe on the beach and when the level of tourist cruises is lower.

6 Snowshoes in Norway

Norway is wrapped in a thick white blanket in early November and thus remains well into May in many places. Salt does not spread along the roads, not because it prevents damage to the environment but because of its low effectiveness at such amount of rainfall. That's when drivers make use of winter tires or even nails, especially in mountain areas.

Snowshoes in Norway

At this time, the king of Norway sport, the cross country ski, where thousands of kilometers of slopes extend without the need for a nearby ski slope. In addition to this activity are snowshoes, some utensils that we will put under our feet and that will allow us to walk on deep snow paths.

7 Sofia's tranquility

The last time I went through Sofia (Bulgaria) was in the month of March. A very quiet and very safe looking city, well connected and with really affordable prices. So much that traveling from the center to the Airport costs just over one euro.

10 Jordan al fresco

You imagine the desert so warm that you can fry a fried egg on the sand. But deserts also have their winter and Jordan is a good example of this. An example is to walk by Wadi rum less than 10 degrees, spending a few nights touching the 0 degrees.

The best 4 × 4 routes through the Wadi Rum desert

With luck you can see snow in the desert or even in it Petra, although it is certainly not very common. Even so, the number of tourists falls in gigantic proportions, so much so that one can visit places within Petra completely alone.

Places you should see on a visit to Petra

In addition, a hiking route around Wadi Rum at noon is priceless. The sensation of walking on the red sand sheltered with a simple jacket is unique.
