003 Italy Valle Brembana  a land that forges body and soul Kiss From The World travel and people magazine

Valle Brembana: l'ardesia e il giardino segreto

In Val Brembana ci sono luoghi capaci di esaltare suggestivi fenomeni atmosferici come l’aurora, ovvero l’apparizione della luce che si vede nel cielo ancor prima che il sole sorga.

Siamo al Passo San Marco (1992 metri s.l.d.m.), il più alto passo stradale della provincia di Bergamo che collega la Val Brembana alla Valtellina. Il buio è totale, il cielo stellato è infinito. Il nostro sguardo è rivolto a sud est, è esattamente da lì che oggi sorgerà il sole.

Ad un tratto, da dietro le montagne, ecco spuntare una tenue luce rossastra che inizia ad illuminare l’atmosfera tingendola di blu.

I contrasti dei colori sono bellissimi, si va da un leggero rossastro, al blu, al nero. Tutto questo è accompagnato dal profilo delle montagne della Valle …

001 U.S.A. Louisiana What beats a smart 5 star restaurant  Kiss From The World travel and people magazine

What beats a smart 5 star restaurant?

On a road trip driving along the Gulf coast road, somewhere between Gulfport and Biloxi, I pulled into the car park of a casino and someone had set up an impromptu crawfish bake. He had towed a huge oven or boiler and set out trestle tables and was doing a roaring trade.The standard portion was a deep tray over a foot wide stacked high with crawfish and baked potatoes. Very messy and fiddly to eat but it was fantastic and although it was one of the crappiest venues I’ve eaten in, it was one of my most memorable meals.

Canada has a long and proud history of opening its doors to people in need. It’s a tradition that continues today and one we, as a nation, are proud of. It is in fact, what makes us Canadian.
