001 Italy Stories that captivate  places that enchant  Milan and Lake Maggiore Kiss From The World travel and people magazine

12 hours in Milan: stories, encounters and places that make time expand

Often, you end up visiting big cities only briefly – for a flight connection, a stopover enroute to another destination, or by choice. That’s what we did when we decided to spend 12 hours in Milan.

When you don’t have long in a city you have two options: pass your time wandering aimlessly, or make it unforgettable – and make the short hours you have feel like days.

Milan. Art, culture, food, fashion, finance, history. What’s the best way to expand the time we’ve got? The secret is in the intensity you give to the hours you have. The people you meet, the things you discover, and how you immerse yourself in the stories that surround you.

It’s the only way to change your perception of time, and feel thehours magically transforming themselves …

001 Italy  Man  I Was Lucky Growing Up Kiss From The World travel and people magazine

Man, I Was Lucky Growing Up

When I was a wee lad, my family didn't have a ton of money. My mom was a part time nurse and my father was an art teacher at a small private school. There were no fancy beach house visits, Aspen ski trips, Disney vacations, etc. We had fun outside playing, plenty to eat, and a wholesome environment that supported curiosity and education, but few of the bubble-gum-for-the-mind relaxation vacations a lot of the people I knew in middle and high school were taking. My father was instead building the groundwork for a cultural exploration that would lend my brothers and myself the underpinnings …

Autumn shows her colours in the Cederberg mountains

I've been going to Kromrivier in the Cederberg Mountains for about 17 years now in the summer holidays and this was my first visit in autumn. The colours and textures blew me away.... plants, flowers, rocks, sand, the sky, the falling seemed like I was walking around inside a painting.Kromrivier is a farm about 4 hours from Cape Town, 280km to the north. It's owned by the Nieuwoudt family and its proper name is the Cederberg Tourist Park. The farm borders the Cederberg Wilderness and has basic but comfortable self catering bungalows.

Oslo - A City in Mourning

On July 22nd 2011, Oslo, changed forever. Anders Behring Breivik performed atrocities towards innocent people, killing 8 with a bombing near the government buildings and 69 children on the island of Utøya. Whilst getting excited for my trip, which began on July 31st, I witnessed the coverage of the tragedy on television. Scheduled to be in Oslo on August 5th, exactly 2 weeks later, I desperately wanted to show my respect at the memorials. It has now become a part of my life and I will truly never forget it. I feel privileged to have taken part in the mourning of the great nation of Norway.The …

Random spare notes on how to go from Bratislava to Minsk, via Warsaw

Bratislava, any given Friday, 10.50 pmI prepare to say goodbye to a small group of old and new friends and board a worse-looking-than-I-had-imagined EuroNight train bound to Warsaw, that should be leaving now but is only halfway to arriving to the station. Goodbyes and farewells behind me, I find myself on a 6-seat cabin and surprisingly enough longing for the Ukrainian platzkarts - at least there are beds, after all. And there was no way a train in Ukraine would cost me 77 euros (almost my entire remaining budget), as this one just did.Apart from the police rushing back and forth at some …

Road Trip Rules: Step One: Get Your Car

Sailing the Inside Passage

When choosing a cruise, a lot of people try to pick an itinerary with as few ‘At Sea’ days as possible. These, though, are almost inevitable on most cruises.
