Subject: Re: Travelling or staying home this year?
Hi France,

I vote for travelling !!

There are far less tourists all around and prices are lower. These are the main reasons for me. Moreover I believe this is the best time to visit Middle East.

I'm off to Syria in 2 weeks for a month and I'm quite excited because I heard you can walk around great archaeological sites, like Palmira, almost without western tourists!

I made this experience last year in Iran and it was gorgeous. I found people friendly and real hospitable.

Marco in Milan - Italy counting down for my trip to Syria (-14 days).
