005 Italy Feeling all five senses in Tuscany and Umbria Kiss From The World travel and people magazine 1

Castello Banfi: an extraordinary Tuscan experience

What’s it like to wake up in the middle of one of the world’s most esteemed vineyards? And in addition, with a castle that rises up behind the vines? One word… amazing!

The hills around Montalcino have been the cradle of winemaking culture since the time of the Etruscans.

Castello Banfi's estate stretches south west of Montalcino for 2,830 hectars. It’s immense!

The property encompasses the castle and village, the restaurant, pub, wine shop, the old balsameria (where balsamic vinegar is made), the museum of glass and bottles, huge wine cellars, and dozens and dozens of vineyards – going as far as the eye can see.

Elizabeth, the Project Director of Castello Banfi, shows us around the vineyards. And it’s here, in the middle of the vines, that we …

001 Trinidad and Tobago Chaguaramas Zip Lining in Trinidad Kiss From The World travel and people magazine

Zip-Lining in Trinidad

I have been zip-lining quite a few times now, so I have started looking for something to set each one apart from the rest. Whether that be a record breaking distance, a soaring new height or maybe even just a really cool location. The zip lining in Chaguaramas at Macqueripe turned out to be in the coolest setting yet. Why? Because I could see Venezuela from mid-air. That might not sounds like such a big deal, but I thought that it was pretty awesome. I was standing (well, okay--flying) in the country of Trinidad & Tobago, yet I could see the neighbouring country of Venezuela with my own bare …

A little slice of heaven at Lapostolle Winery

There are moments in life where fantasy and reality blend so seamlessly it's hard to distinguish them, and our day at the Lapostolle winery was one such occasion. The winery, tucked into a a western corner of the Colchagua Valley is a structure mostly hidden underground, the visible part resembling a modern stylized birds nest perched above its vineyards as the only hint of the massive architectural gem hidden several stories beneath the earth. Driving up a dirt road from the imposing gate at the front, we wound our way amongst the vines, all heavy with dark berries and almost ready for …

Estocolmo, un puzzle sobre 14 islas

Definir a la capital sueca como una de las ciudades del diseño, poblada por rubios altos y donde podrás degustar albóndigas de reno en un entorno sacado de un catálogo de Ikea no sería mentir, pero sí omitir parte de la descripción de esta capital escandinava. Como el aire multicultural que se respira debido a la alta tasa de inmigración, la presencia de jardines verdes en cada esquina, de bosques a un tiro de piedra y de agua envolviéndolo todo y dotando a Estocolmo de una luz especial.

WAW – Europe’s hidden gem airport

The more you travel, the more you come to appreciate the modest perks you can grab on the way. Your airport rituals and routines begin mattering more and more, if anything also to keep you sane.
