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 Indonesia Lombok  Gili Air A Gili and a Goodbye Kiss From The World travel and people magazine

A Gili and a Goodbye

After much consideration I made the decision to visit Gili Air just for a day. The initial plan was so cycle to Bangsal, catch the Public Boat to Gili Air, stay a few nights, go back to Bangsal and make my way back to Lembar via Senggigi and Mataram.I used one of the dozen travel agencies to arrange for a shuttle bus to pick me up in Senggigi, take me to Bangsal, take the boat, walk around the small island Gili Air and come back the same day with a driver. Things were on a slow side because of Eid-al-Adha, the Muslim Holiday celebrated on the 26th of October…the same day I planned to do a trip …

Arriving on the Normandy Beaches.

We drive today to the Normandy beaches where the Allied invasion of Europe began in 1944. This means that we drive through Caen, home to William the Bastard, renamed the Conqueror after 1066 when he became King of England, without stopping to explore. Next time.

Understanding a culture through food - devouring the continent in tasty titbits

Frankschhoek – meaning ‘French corner’ in Afrikaans is known as the ‘gourmet capital of South Africa’ and uncannily resembles the Provençale landscapes of its namesake. French refugees settled here in 1688, bringing their gastronomic culture with them and this charming winelands town is a veritable melange of cape Dutch architecture and French-style eateries. It’s was hard to believe we were in Africa at all.Preparations for our anticipated and highly indulgent evening meal began in the morning. We had to work up an appetite. To the mountains with us!

24 Hours in Ayutthaya

Traveling alone to Thailand's ancient capital just one hour north of Bangkok was my first solo adventure trip outside the city since sojourning in what used to be known as Siam. The following is an excerpt from a story I penned about my short time there (exactly 24 hours). And some neat photos to illustrate the written word! Elephants were essential to ancient Thai history in that they helped the dignitaries fight battles and conquer land. Elephants were to Thai aristocrats what horses were to medieval knights. Unfortunately, these precious and gentle creatures have been exploited for their …

All that to reach this: from the European airports I know, Warsaw is an hidden gem. I had that impression from previous times, but I was more convinced by the …
