A Wine Lover's Guide to La Rioja, Spain - Christie's International Real Estate

There's never a bad time to visit the winemaking region of La Rioja in northern Spain. Arrive in summer, and you'll see it as Ernest Hemingway did, who wrote about the "overfoliaged, wet, green Basque Country." In fall, fiery leaves match blood-orange sunsets, and in winter, the vines are covered in a thick blanket of glistening snow.

SIARGAO: I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW

The petite Filipino island of Siargao sits 448km off the coast of mainland Cebu, but life here couldn't be more different. On cacophonic streets beeping horns are de rigueur and thick industrial smog melds with the smell of slow-cooked Lechon pig, while the thick palm jungle surrounding the streets possesses a density of a totally different kind.

Discovering the spirit of Istanbul in Berlin

Exiting the Schönleinstrasse U-Bahn station in southeast Berlin on a Sunday afternoon I enter the neighbourhood of Kreuzberg, or as it's more commonly known to Berliners, Little Istanbul. Apart from the ubiquitous graffiti-covered buildings, the area seems entirely removed from the Berlin I've experienced over the past few days of my trip.

Kinsterna Hotel, Greece: hotel of the week

This week, we're lusting for a hotel high on the hills, with vineyards, olive groves and its own Byzantine estate. We want a bedroom overlooking the Aegean, a spa with an Ottoman hammam, an infinity pool set in citrus groves, and a restaurant serving ravioli stuffed with pumpkins. Demanding, us?

Paradise Lost: Can the Philippines preserve Siargao Island?

The journey to Siargao should have taken an hour, but we'd already been in the air that long when an enormous cloud tore across the sky and chased us twice around the island. When we finally touched down I realised that the runway we'd been circumnavigating was little more than a finger swipe through custard, a patch of scrubland disappearing into the jungle around it.

AC Hotel, Guadalajara, Mexico | Travel | Wallpaper* Magazine

The birthplace of mariachi bands, wide-brimmed sombreros, traditional Mexican rodeos and the famed architect Luis Barragán, Mexico's second city gives DF a run for its money in the cultural stakes, even if it does struggle visibly with police corruption and gang violence.

POINT BREAK IN BALI - MOMENTUM

Bali was a latecomer to the international surfing scene. Australia, California and Hawaii have been associated with the sport since the early 1930s, but the Indonesian island only really garnered attention in the late 1960s and early '70s, after films such as Morning of the Earth and Tubular Swells put Uluwatu and a coterie of ...

The end of Tel Aviv's renegade drummers?

It starts on the beach at sundown. At first it's not much more than a distant pop patting, easily mistaken for a game of matkot, the bat and ball game known as Israel's national sport. Pop, pat, pop, pat. But then the distinctive rasp of a snare drum joins the fray, followed by the faint rattle of a maraca.

How millennials are disrupting the way we move | InMotion

Roughly defined as the generation born between the early 1980s and late 1990s, millennials are the age group that grew up with technology in their lives. They were the first generation required to take information technology as a subject at school, the first group of young people to own their own mobile phones, and most likely the ones now working for tech start-ups.
