The answer is going to depend on the country. There is no worldwide answer. National meteorological institutes often have maps of snow frequency. Not that you want snowcover, which may be harder to find than snowfall. Some places get lots of snowfall that melts within days, whereas others might get only little snowfall, but are so cold that any snow ...

I haven't done the trip but I know some who did it as part of the Mongol Rally. I checked with them - being Australians, they bought their insurance through 1Cover so they definitely covered the whole trip including driving from Europe (London) through to Iran and beyond. The Rally itself suggests Campbell Irvine, which suggests they will also cover that ...

In an answer to a previous question about weather, there was a reference to this website called Weather Spark that turned out very great for historical values. There is no relevant graph beside maybe the probability of precipitation (but it does not say how thick the snow will be) and the snow depth (but there does not seem to be any data). Graphs are ...

A T2 entry clearance (or colloquially, visa) is not recognized outside of the UK. Instead, the person's nationality is used as the determining factor. You wrote that you are Turkish... Turkish nationals are listed in the EU Council Regulation (EC) No 539/2001 as requiring a visa to enter the Schengen zone. See ...

European Strategy As others have rightfully pointed out: there is no unique European greeting custom. Consequently there is no universally acknowledged strategy to avoid awkward situations. I however agree with my fellow travellers here: shake hands with strangers and with people to whom you are not close. Physical contact is strongly linked to intimacy ...

Since each of these countries would unilaterally decide whether they recognize Schengen visas and under which conditions, I don't think it's possible to find an official list anywhere. I am marking this answer as “community wiki” so that we can come up with a list: Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia and Cyprus (all EU members) have rules modelled on those of the ...

AIT/FIA act as guarantors for the Carnet de Passages en Douane and the FIA do not include Pakistan in an extensive list of countries under “Where to get your CPD”. Seems may not be available in Pakistan, but it might be worth contacting Automobile Association of Pakistan and Motorsport Association of Pakistan as these are both FIA members. The RAC has some ...

You're probably out of luck without delving into the world of freighter travel or private boats. There are cruises from Europe to the Caribbean. However none that I could find go via Jamaica or Trinidad and Tobago. Royal Caribbean, for instance, only runs them via Puerto Rico. Compilation sites also don't list those two as possible stops either. ...

QueueHammer, I'm assuming you're from the USA. You're going to need a really, really good car for this. Driving from, random example, Dijon to Stockholm (that will knock-off three or four countries for you) is an incredibly long trip on the world's best and fastest autoroutes (and also the odd few thousand km on Sweden's tidy laneways). So... (1) To do ...

I think right now the cheapest way would be to fly with Norwegian from Scandinavia somewhere to Bangkok (from 184 EUR), then with continue with AirAsia to Melbourne (164 EUR), so 350 EUR so for a single fare. To Perth might be a bit cheaper.
