Best Southern European X-Mas Vacation
My wife and I have 2 vouchers for a flight that will take us (we live in Spain) anywhere in Europe. Being that we are not big fans of X-Mas but are wine writers and foodies, we thought it might be fun to find something different to see/experience in southern Europe. Anyways, the tickets free, but we're still on a budget(tight). We're happy to hostal it, though we are looking for that gem of a deal where we can stay in something a bit nicer. For activites, we love history and would love to hike and walk a lot. The biggest question is with this time of year where will we not miss things that we should see. We're thinking either the week before or after the 25th to go, though we could wait till after the new year it that made a difference. Only places we don't want to go are Spain and Portugal(we live here!).
