7Macedonia: Cultural

7Macedonia: Cultural Journey: A lesserdiscovered cousin of the Balkans, Macedonia has an intense history where influences from the East and West collide. It is famous for ancient civilizations, UNESCO world heritage monasteries and the vibrant cities of Sofia and Skopje. Ottomans, Communists and Romans left their mark during their occupation, which subsequently imprinted many contrasts across the cultural landscape of this country. This Baltic state is also rich in nature with a multitude of national parks, waterfalls, and famous wine regions, and travelers will sample locally grown Macedonian wine in the city of Tikvesh. Foodies will also enjoy discovering the coffee culture in Bitola, and the role it has had on the city in the last few centuries. 8Italy: Walking the Francigena Way: AAs trail tourism increases in popularity, The Francigena Way should be next on your list to conquer. This historical journey has been walked by thousands of pilgrims, and was once the route from Canterbury to Rome. It begins in the beautiful city of Orvieto, before walking through Tuscia Laziale, an agricultural region of fields, olive groves and volcanic lakes. Following the ancient Via Cassia, pass through beautiful villages such as Montefiascone, also known as the city of Popes and for its fine wine. Many medieval cities and monasteries fill this path, including thick forests of oaks, abbey ruins, and secluded communities. The journey ends in the Eternal City of Rome. 16 . DRIFTTRAVEL.COM

9West Greenland: Discover Disko Bay: Polar expeditions have grown in popularity over the years, as people want to see glaciers and icebergs in all their glory. This arctic expedition takes a unique spin as it also journeys into local Inuit communities living on the western coast of Greenland. Travelers have the opportunity to delve into the local culture within the icy seas. No journey in Greenland would be complete without a visit to the impressive Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s a vast amount of Arctic wildlife on this route, and the best whale watching can be done on Disko Island, as its surrounding waters are home to the humpback, fin, and minke whales. 10 Sudan: Desert Explorer: An underrated destination compared to other African nations, Sudan is slowing gaining momentum as an unchartered destination to visit. It has vast red deserts and believe it or not, a large number of ancient pyramids. Built by the rulers of the Kushite kingdoms, they are smaller compared to Egyptian pyramids and are extremely well preserved. The best part is, there are hardly any tourists around so your chances of taking an unobstructed photograph of a pyramid is extremely high. Explore the Temple of Soleb, and capture images of colonial style railway stations still reminiscent of British architecture in the middle of the desert. On top of that, camp under the stars and visit Nubian villages in this out of the way itinerary. TRAVEL OFTEN . LIVE WELL . 17
