Balearic: an archipelago for those who like to keep fit

Kayaking, trekking, diving, golf: there is no activity that can not be practiced on the beautiful Spanish islands
The Balearic Islands, Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera are a true paradise for those who love adventure and outdoor sports. On these islands it is possible to immerse yourself in uncontaminated nature and explore the inland territories in total freedom.
Favorable climate, caves overlooking the sea, rugged coastline, but also green paths and long sandy beaches. All these places are ideal for sports activities linked to nature, from mountain biking to trekking, diving, kayaking and windsurfing.

Mallorca – The island of Mallorca boasts first-class sports facilities: a football stadium, a velodrome and a large number of golf courses. Moreover, Mallorca is internationally renowned for the nautical competitions held every summer in the waters just off its coast and for the trot races that take place almost every weekend in the racetracks of Palma and Manacor. You can choose from a wide range of sports: beach volleyball tournaments, football or tennis matches; swimming, sailing, windsurfing, but also scuba diving and water skiing; for those who prefer more adrenaline-like activities there are flights in hang-gliding, parachuting and rock climbing. The mountainous landscapes of the island lend themselves to explorations by bicycle, an example is the Serra de Tramuntana, a mountain range full of gorges and canyons that stretches along the north-west coast.

Menorca – On the island of Menorca one of the favorite activities for sport lovers is kayak, a simple sport with which you can have fun on your own or in a couple, on board this small boat that allows you to travel the coastline centimeter by centimeter , managing to discover magnificent places such as coves or caves accessible only by sea. On land instead you can discover the inner area, with fields and hills bordered by stone walls, practicing activities ranging from a simple walk through the hills to the rides. Among the various excursions the most striking is the Cami de Cavalls, the horse trail, thanks to which you can cross all the landscapes of the island, prairies, beaches, medieval villages and woods along a path that is articulated for about 185km.

Ibiza – The location and the climate make it a perfect place for any kind of outdoor sports. This island offers a varied panorama of breathtaking trails to be enjoyed in complete tranquility on foot or by bike, and hosts periodically numerous competitions for professionals, including cycling and mountain biking, triathlon and marathons, by sea and by land. Throughout the year it is possible to practice sports such as surfing, windsurfing and scuba diving, but also to explore the island on board a kayak or, for speed enthusiasts, in motocross.

Formentera – It is the island of the archipelago in which to enjoy the days more calmly, without however repeating to outdoor sports. You can visit the island by bike along the flat trails or get on a hill in motion to admire the view from the inlets and coves that characterize the coast. In Formentera there are 32 circuits that can be explored on foot so as to be able to reach places not visible from the road and not accessible by car or motorbike. These paths, made of paths that are intertwined for over 100 km, are the perfect place to practice Nordic walking, Nordic walking, a simple activity for which you only need to get sticks. But those who really want to enjoy the calm and peace of these places can practice birdwatching, that is to observe the birds and with them all the fauna and flora of the island.

Ibiza sues Netflix for the ironies of the film of the same name

The Balearic community wants to sue the production of the film that portrays a culture of the island that does not correspond to reality
ibiza
It was hard to imagine but even an island like Ibiza can take offense. And to unleash the ire of the island institutions was nothing less than a film made and disseminated on Netflix. The offending film is called precisely Ibiza and tells of two girls who run away on the island in search of an elusive DJ. It matters little (as often happens in television and film productions, in any case) that the shooting took place in reality in Barcelona and Croatia.

The local tourist agency is therefore annoyed by the erroneous representation that the film does not only the geographical characteristics of the place but also in describing a culture of parties, discos and adventures without limits. The Consel d’Eivissa, the representative institution of the island, had in the first instance denied the authorization to produce the film to shoot the site, after having read the screenplay and having found it poorly suited to the type of tourism that instead reaches the ‘island.

The Ibizan community claims the fact that the island is not just a club and a party, as the film suggests, but also a lively agricultural, gastronomic and artisanal culture. It is not the first time that a location has distanced itself from its filmic representation: the Hollywood Reporter remembers how even Iran had moved against the 2013 film Argo by Ben Affleck, accused of spreading Islamophobia towards the country.

Among the views not to be missed to witness the spectacle of a fiery sky above the sea, in Majorca, in the largest island of the archipelago, there is Cap de Formentor, a narrow peninsula 12 kilometers long and three meters wide, located at north in the municipality of Pollença. To reach what is considered a “natural sanctuary”, one crosses the Sierra de Tramontana, between steep cliffs and vertiginous hairpin bends. But the road, very scenic, offers incredible landscapes. From the lighthouse, the sunset is exciting.
Another privileged position to be conquered, to observe the sun that plunges into the water until it disappears is Banyalbufar (which in Arabic means “built near the sea”). The small town of the Sierra de Tramontana, located between the municipalities of Estellencs, Esporles and Valldemossa, is characterized by the “marjades”. Or the hills terraces that, in the past, were used for the cultivation of grapes.

Today, these natural sea view offers a special taste sunset. In Menorca, the Balearic island declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the aperitif at twilight is at the Puerto de Ciutadella, comfortably seated in one of the small bars along the ancient defensive walls of the city center. Or, moving further north, to Cap de Cavalleria, the unmissable vantage point for romantic couples looking for privacy and privacy.

If in Ibiza the sunset bar is synonymous with “Café del Mar”, in the homeland of nightlife there are several places worth reaching for the “puesta de sol”. Like Playa Benirras: in this characteristic bay, the setting is magical and vibrant, because as the sun gradually disappears, the agitated rhythm of the drums played by the local hippy community grows.

For those looking for a place far from the crowds, there is Punta Galera, a natural pearl where you sit on the rocks bathed by the sea and wait for the sunset to give you emotions. Arriving on the “white isla”, the glamorous and elegant Formentera, the real “must” not to be missed is Cala Saona. The little bay dotted with lively kiosks and restaurants, is the only one to have – along with Illetes – the sandy beach. Finally, for a more picturesque and uncontaminated scenery, there is the lighthouse of Cap de Barbaria: the “puestas de sol” admired by this natural terrace on a sea overgrown by seagulls, have an extra gear.

Bridge April 25 2018 to the sea: the best destinations

 

Bridge 25 aprile 2018 to the sea: the best destinations to enjoy an early summer and a few days of relaxation and fun.

This year April 25, 2018 falls on Wednesday and for this reason lends itself to a double “interpretation”: a long bridge that starts from Saturday, April 21 or even a real week of vacation that will also incorporate the bridge of the first May. Whatever your choice there are seaside places where you will feel like you are already in the summer and where you can really switch off and regenerate completely.

Going on the occasion of the April 25th Bridge to the Canaries could allow you to enjoy a summer advance. It is an archipelago located not far from the coasts of Morocco and, apart from the months of January and February, ensures a mild climate throughout the year. The main islands to which you could turn your attention are Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Furteventura. Ideal for those who love nature rather wild, the archipelago is also home to the Teide volcano and is much appreciated by those who dive and love to observe beautiful backdrops. Among the most beautiful beaches we recommend Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles, Playa de San Agustin and Playa de Amadores on the Gran Canaria island; Corralejo and Morro Jable in Fuerteventura; Las Teresitas in Santa Cruz and Las Vistas in Arona in Tenerife.

The Balearic Islands include Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera and visiting them in this period will allow you to discover aspects of these places that in summer, with the incredible crowds of tourists, will make it impossible to savor. In addition to the beautiful beaches and immersion in nature you can take advantage of the tranquility that you will find to explore far and wide and go for example to discover the path that runs on the Sierra de Tramuntana and long since been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or you can visit the Mirò Museum in Palma, remote and hidden monasteries, the most beautiful gullies in the Mediterranean or fascinating places like the Gothic quarter of Palma de Mallorca. Ideal for those who enjoy hiking, biking or even on horseback if you look for the best beaches we recommend Playa de Formentor and Cala des Moro in Mallorca and Ses Illetes in Forrmentera.

An island often underestimated and not far from Italy is without a doubt Malta. In April it will welcome you with an average temperature of about 20 degrees and this is considered the ideal month to visit and do excursions on the island. Malta offers incredible natural beauties such as natural caves, inlets and stacks. It also has crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches. Among the best we mention Ghadira Bay in the Bay of Mellieha, Imgiebah, Ghajn Tuffieha and the Golden Bay, ideal for those who love the tranquility and the wildest and most unspoiled nature. Malta also offers the opportunity to make beautiful hiking or mountain biking tours and the opportunity to visit three UNESCO World Heritage sites: Valletta, the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum and the megalithic temples.

The first three proposals dealt with three places rather close to us. For those who want to undertake a journey a bit ‘longer and more challenging, we point out that among the ideal destinations for the bridge of April 25, 2018 there is for example Egypt and in particular the town of Hurghada. In April it will also be accessible with flights and low cost offers and will allow you to spend your vacation days in an already summery climate, but without the heat and humidity of the months of July and August. If you want to go even farther you may choose to go to Oman, to the Arabian Peninsula, to the Caribbean by choosing for example Turks & Caicos, or to the Philippine archipelago in South East Asia.

Someone has spotted it off the coast of Cala Molì, a small beach south of Cala Tarida (Ibiza), surrounded by dense vegetation.

Even the heiress Paris Hilton turns up in the boat a few days ago has been seen off the coast of Formentera, even if at night it is easier to meet her in the ibizenchi clubs.

And if in Formentera Paolo Bonolis has already dismantled the tents, do not despair because you could always meet the bomber Christian Vieri, who every day leads the «TG of Formentera» from his Instagram profile. Or Luca Laurentis, a frequent visitor to the island for many years. It is seen hanging out with the “Brazilian” briefs between the Beso Beach and the Tanga.

It is rumored that a few days ago rock star Gianna Nannini has landed and the comedian Giorgio Panariello is expected to arrive.

Balearic Islands: what to see, and the 10 most beautiful beaches

The Balearic Islands are located between Spain and the North African coast, and surrounded by the waters of the Mediterranean. Every summer the Balearic Islands welcome thousands of tourists of all nationalities thanks to miles of fine sandy beaches, scorching sun, excellent restaurants and exuberant nightlife. Find out which is the most suitable island for your holiday, and the 10 most beautiful beaches in the Balearics!

What is surprising is that Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera – that is, the Balearic Islands – have managed to maintain, despite massive tourism, a certain integrity. In addition to bars, beaches and entertainment 24 hours a day, in the Balearics you will find Gothic cathedrals, Neolithic megaliths, fishing villages, beautiful rural paths and stretches of orange groves and olive groves as far as the eye can see. managed to spoil these delicate corners of Spain (at least for now!).

The Balearic Islands are an archipelago of the western Mediterranean Sea and form an autonomous community of Spain consisting of four islands: Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, and a single province. Also part of the Balearic archipelago is the smaller island of Cabrera, which houses the homonymous natural park, and some islets. The capital of the Balearic Islands is Palma de Mallorca, while the official languages ​​are both Catalan and Spanish. Also called the islands of eternal spring for their mild climate throughout the year, the Balearics are one of the most popular destinations in Spain and beyond. Their beaches are famous all over the world but, despite this, it is still possible to find pristine and heavenly beaches, especially in Menorca and Formentera. Although very close to each other, the islands are decidedly different from each other, and this is mainly due to their different historical heritage. Ibiza and Formentera are the most famous and the most popular (especially by Italians), while Mallorca and Menorca are more reserved and quiet.

In Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza land a lot of charter and line flights from all over Europe. Among the main airlines flying non-stop from Italy there are Ryanair, Easyjet, Vueling, Meridiana, Neos, Air Europa and Iberia. Direct flights are from May until October; in autumn and winter you will necessarily have to make a stopover in Spain.

By ferry Due to its small size, Formentera does not have an airport and can only be reached by ferry from Ibiza. From Barcelona you can reach Palma, Alcudia (in the northeastern part of Mallorca) via Ciutadella (on the island of Menorca), Maó and Sant Antoni (Ibiza). Then there are several companies that connect the four islands to each other. All these services are active from mid-May to September. Out of season the frequency drops considerably.

Majorca is the island with the most local transport: there are two railway lines and a complete bus network that will allow you to reach any location on the island. There are also around 30 car rental agencies and you can hire bikes in many of the island’s villages.

Menorca instead does not have an equally developed transport network and, for example, to reach Maó from the airport you have to take a taxi. Three bus companies operate on the island and there are several car, motorbike and bicycle rental agencies. The transport network of

Ibiza has bus lines that reach all the locations on the island. In general, especially in Menorca and Ibiza it is preferable to rent a car to have the freedom to reach even the most hidden coves.

In Formentera you just need to rent a motorbike or a bicycle because the distances are short.

The Balearic Islands are called the “islands of eternal spring” because they enjoy a mild and sunny climate practically throughout the year (it is said that sunny days are around 300 a year!).

Running-Charlotte: «My favorite destinations for spring running»

The beautiful season brings us that healthy desire to escape at weekends. So start the best season for a few weekend out of town and maybe out of Italy. Here you will find all the tips to run in five beautiful locations.

RunningCharlotte: «My favorite destinations for spring running»
Despite the rains of the last weekends, spring has arrived officially. Together with spring returns that tickling, that desire for vacation, out of town, sunny on the skin, wind in the hair.

If moreover we are runners, the opportunity to “explore” some new destination running is even more tempting.

But where to go? Which are the destinations that offer the best routes to run?

The new offers on fast and low cost flights make it close to any destination within a thousand kilometers and the offer is really wide, both in Italy and abroad.

The mild but not warm season makes the race perfect even in the south, in summer too torrid to give us a pro-running climate.

Here are the five goals for this spring runner:

Remaining in Italy can not miss the great classic: the Romagna Riviera. Between Rimini, Cesenatico and Milano Marittima the flat coastline and the wide and flat promenade make the Sunday races a fairytale. In this season tourism is still shy and allows you to experience these beautiful places with the calm of the slow tourist. An extra tip? The beaches of the Riviera, not yet invaded by deckchairs and umbrellas, are a perfect training track. Running barefoot on the sand trains joints and tendons and strengthens ankles and also.

From the north-east to the south-west, the other side of our peninsula gives us less well-known gems like the Circeo Park, in Latina. The Circeo park is one of the National parks and extends around the Sabaudia promenade. It owes its name to the famous anthological figure of the sorceress Circe, who is said to have lived in the woods of this promontory. Here you will find endless kilometers of beautiful shaded paths and sand dunes that will welcome your rides, suitable for all levels, even for a simpler outing in the family.

The Italian islands could not miss. With flights from almost all Italian airports, spring Sardinia is a rare sight. My advice is to leave the popular summer destinations and head south. Cagliari and Chia are waiting for you to take a look at the sea. If the beach of the Poetto di Cagliari can give you an easy ride to the sun in the south, the Bay of Chia will bewitch you with its white beaches.

Among the big cities, spring brings romantic thoughts and Paris is among the favorite destinations of runners. Running along the Seine leads us to fantasize and the thought jumps from powdered queens to the art of the century. From the Louvre to the Tuileries gardens, to the enchanted paths of the Bois de Boulogne, to pass under the Eiffel Tower.

Among the destinations that come back – or maybe they have never disappeared – Ibiza, which celebrates its second edition of its Marathon on April 7th – is surely the island with a thousand faces and among these also the sporting one. Beaches and paths offer incredible views and romantic sunsets. Perfect destination for those who want to mix sports and happy hour without renouncing the convenience of a direct flight from almost all Italian airports.

Ibiza against wild tourism: just Airbnb and similar platforms

With the aim of protecting seasonal workers and residents, the Municipality of Ibiza will take heavy measures against online housing rental platforms

A news that in Italy has gone unnoticed, but that could interest many travelers of our country who are planning a trip to the Balearics. The Municipality of the city of Ibiza, capital of the homonymous island, has reached the limit of patience and has decided to ban Airbnb (and other online platforms of this type) due to overcrowding of tourists that has degenerated from May to September last year. In fact more and more seasonal workers have been forced to sleep in the car because of the prices and the unavailability of housing.

The Municipality of the city of Ibiza, following the vote expressed in the first week of February, will forbid the rental of accommodation through any online platform, especially Airbnb. The goal is to stop an increasingly wild and unregulated tourism, with the hope of protecting residents and those who go to the island to work. In fact, last summer, homes or rooms for seasonal workers were besieged by occasional travelers.

So many workers have been forced to live in overcrowded apartments, paying exaggerated prices. Some even spent their nights sleeping in the car. The situation has become unsustainable and the Ibiza administration has said enough, communicating that it will bring into force a law against AirBnb and all online sites to rent housing (specific measures have not yet been disseminated).

The Balearic Tourism Act, approved in August 2017, set penalties of up to € 400,000 for platforms that rent illegal housing and up to € 40,000 for apartment owners. Salty fines, however, did not deter Airbnb’s “hosts”, who continued to put their rooms or houses online. At this point, Ibiza decided to intervene more heavily.

“We have a huge problem with these owners, since they tend to operate almost secretly and without renting the apartments in an official way. Now we have the tools to act and to punish those who act in this way: we will take this cause very seriously. The situation in Ibiza is becoming unsustainable because of digital housing platforms, “said Vincent Torres, director general of tourism in the Municipality of Ibiza, during an interview with ‘El Confidencial’.

“We can not continue to have less and less doctors, teachers or tourism operators because of illegally operating sites,” Torres said. AirBnb, through a press release, has confirmed its intention to collaborate with the Municipality to meet the needs of local and seasonal workers, but underlines that less than 5% of tourists rely on their platform to rent accommodation. In the weeks before the summer we will certainly have a clearer idea of ​​what will await travelers willing to choose the “Isla Blanca” for a holiday.

Sailing holidays: tips for the first time

Have you chosen to opt for sailing holidays this year? Here are some tips on what to wear, how to dress and what kind of boat to choose for a summer of serenity and fun.

This year have you decided for the first time to tackle sailing on a sailboat or catamaran? Good choice. There is no better way to discover hidden bays if you are not navigating. The Greek islands, the Balearics, Croatia, Sicily, Sardinia: in the Mediterranean Sea you are spoiled for choice on where to go.

The beauty of a boat holiday is that you never get bored: every day you discover a new beach or a new cove, make friends with the other guests on board and eat good food, often cooked by the skipper or a hostess or in the restaurants on the ground.

You live a holiday surrounded by the sounds of the sea and nature: an experience suitable for both families with children and couples. A group of a dozen friends can even choose to rent the whole boat for themselves and decide the itinerary together with the skipper day by day.

But let’s not forget that sailing holidays are perfect even for those who travel alone: ​​there is no better way to get acquainted if not on board a yacht, there are even some charters for singles, designed specifically for those in search of ‘twin soul.

If you are not used to the rhythms of sailing and it is the first time that you face this type of holiday, get better prepared. Here are some tips for a peaceful summer.

For a woman, before leaving for a holiday, for any holiday, the big question is: what do I put on? On a sailboat, the style is rather spartan and comfortable clothing rather than elegant clothing is preferred. Spaces are therefore better to be casual: yes, then to short-sleeved shirts, tank tops, sundresses, long pants and sweatshirts for the evening. No to shoes with heels on board, but you can keep them in your bag for evenings on the ground. If possible get yourself sail shoes with non-slip soles. Avoid plastic wooden clogs, but wear flip-flops for the shower, on board and on the beaches.

The sunscreen is to be put absolutely in a suitcase, along with a good pair of sunglasses: you are exposed to sunlight most of the time. Avoid carrying trolley or rigid suitcases, better to opt for soft luggage and bags, containing only the bare necessities (the cabinets of the cabins are often of small size). Cash pay: once on board, you will be asked to contribute to a common pot for galley, fuel and port taxes, for a figure that is usually agreed first with the skipper. Lazy home Fido: pets are not allowed on a sailing boat.

First of all, keep in mind that the skipper’s decisions are unquestionable. Usually the itinerary will be followed, but in case of bad weather, it may decide not to go out to sea: it is forbidden to alter and protest, it does so for your safety. Since the environments in the boat are restricted, and should be generally shared with people who do not know each other, it is necessary to be respectful of the spaces of others and to maintain cleanliness and decorum. If you are about to leave for a holiday on a boat, you need to have a good spirit of adaptation (remember it to your children too). It is forbidden to smoke below deck, it is allowed only outdoors, but without bothering others.

If it is your first time on a sailing boat, you probably do not have very clear ideas about which type of boat is right for you. If you are willing to adapt to limited spaces and Spartan lifestyle you will have no problem choosing a monohull. If you want to enjoy more comfort, plenty of space and are willing to spend a higher amount, you can opt for the catamaran, even luxury.

By choosing the cabin charter or individual boarding option, you can rent the double cabin (or the double for single use, usually with a supplement, if you are alone and want your privacy), or if you are a group, you can rent the whole boat, dividing the total cost of the rental among the participants.

Of course yes. Sailing holidays are also suitable for families with children. There are charters specializing in the entertainment of children, equipped with on-board equipment for water games, kayaks, snorkeling and other entertainment.

Why is David Guetta still the number one DJ in the world?

The concert last January 20 at the Forum made a miracle cry. No DJ had ever managed to fill the Milanese building alone. One last big business in a CV by an absolute number one

Last January 18 from Munich a new – yet another – tour of the DJ and producer David Guetta started. Waiting for the great season of the big festivals, this time it’s a short European tour. A leg in the Anglo-Saxon specific language. 8 countries, 11 shows all sold out or almost. 110 thousand tickets sold, of which 9 thousand only for the Italian date at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan, where last January 20, in a blaze of lights, sounds, colors and smiles, the French titanium made screaming to the miracle pop.

For some years. Despite the idea behind this new tour is to go back a bit ‘to the origins (and with the sounds proposed that also range to the techno and progressive has succeeded), the man of the record, the ambassador of the Nations United, who has performed in the Masada in Israel, in Paris under the Eiffel Tower for the European Football Championships and opened the U2 in London for MTV, for this and many other reasons David Guetta a dj is not anymore. It’s much more. It is an institution, a point of reference, an artist perhaps unreachable, who defined the parameters and the style of the golden age of dance music. Surely it is still the number one DJ in the world. The numbers are always on his side and are crazy. With over 53 million likes on Facebook, it is the 40th most followed profile. On Instagram there are 8 and a half million. And if you still think that in 2018 these numbers are worthless, it is important to know that David Guetta is the only DJ like that to be able to physically sell the albums, in a historical period where the cannibalism of the individual has eaten every attempt of construction of a long-term speech. ‘Listen’ the last in order of time, released at the end of 2014 has been certified gold. The new album is one of the most anticipated works of 2018.

David Guetta is the only dj to have just filled a legendary venue like the Mediolanum Forum di Assago, theater of legendary performances by pop stars and rock stars. We must go back to the nineties to see a dj fill that building. It was 1995. The DJs were four and did a bit of Deejay Time. It took over thirty years to make Milan look like a normal European city, where the best DJs perform in the often exhausted arenas, which can be reached by underground. We Italians are weird. We are voracious consumers of music, click collectors, world champions of comments and criticism on the web but when it comes to physically participating in the experience we make a crazy effort. Above all if it comes to freshness and novelty. Usually we prefer the safe used. More reassuring. It will be that without the couch under the ass and the computer in front of the eyes we feel helpless and insecure. “And if I like it then?”

David Guetta has agreed on everyone, parents, children but above all that middle ground populated by undecided constants, anxious to grow up and feel old as if listening to the beautiful pop dance music was a fault. There were many thirty-year-olds at the Forum and many VIPs who at the end of the concert are sure that a sneak peek at the first summer flights to Ibiza gave it to us. By the way, the next will be the longest summer ever in the Balearics, with David Guetta who has renewed his double residence both at Pacha, when May 31 will open for the twenty-second time I think the party F ** k Me I’m Famous that is already legend, both all’Ushuaïa Beach Hotel when Monday, June 4 will open the dance even in the new afternoon format that so much like adults. So long life to you David Guetta. Like you no one ever.

Ibiza: the coolest hippy chic addresses of the summer

The most famous and wild Spanish island of all, loved by young and old: welcome to Ibiza, the hippy chic pearl of the Balearics, where you do clubbing, do yoga on the beach, drink a lot of mojitos and stroll around the markets ethnic as if time had stopped in the seventies.

Ibiza is not only the island of young people, it is also the den of artists, musicians and creatives of all ages who find their inspiration in the free atmospheres of the island. You dress up comfortably: sarongs, colorful dresses, baggy pants, headbands and costumes made by hand and bought on the spot are practically a uniform, for the day and for the night.

In the morning you sleep, in the afternoon you explore the beaches or you go out on a sailboat, in the evening you go in the clubs: Ibiza is the island to discover with friends (or friends). Here’s what to do and where to go to fully immerse yourself in the hippie chic atmosphere of the Isla Blanca.

The most beautiful beaches

For beach parties: Ses Salines. It is the beach loved by party people and rich kids all over Europe. If you want to party you come here, south of Eivissa: besides being part of a natural park, a World Heritage Site, in the evening bars like Jockey Club and Sa Trinxa organize beach parties with international DJs. But in Ibiza everything can happen and it is not to be excluded the possibility of entering into some villa party.

For the mojito: Cala Salada and Cala Saladeta. About 5 km north of Sant Antoni, here is Cala Salada, reachable through a rather simple trekking route surrounded by nature, rewarded by the sight of the golden sand, the coves of the coast and the fifty shades of green Mediterranean water. In the nearby Cala Saladeta you will find peace, silence and mojitos at very low prices of street vendors.

For nudists: Es Cavallet. Welcome to the nudist beach, where young people with statues spread out in the sun without any inhibition alongside families (tolerance is the rule on the island that never sleeps). The beach of Es Cavallet is reached by traveling for 8 km south of Eivissa, in the municipality of Sant Josep de sa Talaia. Dunes of fine sand, Mediterranean vegetation, silence in the morning and music chill out towards the sunset: Es Cavallet denies the prejudice that Ibiza is only the island of chaos and nightlife.

For nature: Cala d’Hort. One of the most beautiful holiday beaches in Spain, Cala d’Hort, 16 km from Eivissa, easily reachable by bus, is surrounded by an unspoiled landscape, among lush vegetation, colorful flora and sand and pebble beach in front to the islet of Es Vedrà. Beloved by the hippies in the Sixties because of its wild atmosphere, the beach of Cala d’Hort, with its surreal sunsets, casts its spell on even the most skeptical visitor.

For the kitchen: Cala Mastella. The best fish of the island is eaten at Cala Mastella, north of the island. Impossible not to stop at the restaurant El Bigote, picturesque and Spartan, directly on the sea: we do not accept reservations on the phone, the only way to enjoy fresh fish caught every morning by the owner is to show up on the spot and ask for a table the day before. There are no exceptions: legend has it that even the king of Spain here saw himself refusing a table because he had not requested it 24 hours in advance.

For hippies (real ones): Benirràs. True hippies can be found in Cala Benirràs, 8 km from Sant Miquel de Balansat. They are at sunset, to enjoy together the experience of the sun setting, accompanied by chill out and tribal music, especially on Sundays. Bonfires are lit, drums are played on the beach, dancing to the rhythm of the percussion in an atmosphere completely out of time, forgetful of any inhibition.

For hippies (real ones) BenirràsHD
For those without a car: Talamanca. It can be reached on foot with a 20 minute walk from Eivissa to be greeted by a long stretch of white sand, lined with top quality restaurants. It is frequented by families, but also by young locals who do not want to take the car. Are you on holiday with single friends? Talamanca is ideal for making acquaintances.

The clubs, discos and hippy markets

Summer in Ibiza lasts approximately from May to October, months in which the locals host internationally renowned DJs to liven up their evenings. Clubbing in Ibiza is a real lifestyle: you can not come on holiday on the white island without stopping at the famous Hi Ibiza, Pacha, Ushuaia and Amnesia.

We hope it’s female: trip to Lagu Lake, the Himalayan kingdom of women

While the busload of tourists ploddes toward the lake at the foot of the Himalayas, suddenly a sign appears that forms an arc on the road. It is the image of two women in traditional clothes rowing in a small boat. Everything is in bright colors: the water is a dazzling blue, the mountains a lively fluo, the teeth of iridescent women. «Welcome to Lugu Lake», says the inscription «Welcome to the Kingdom of Women».

Lugu Lake is the historical homeland of the Mosuo, an ethnic minority with a population of about 40 thousand, representing one of the last matrilineal societies (that is, where the lineage takes place in the maternal line) remained on Earth. In this corner of the world hidden in the mountains on the border between the Chinese province of Sichuan and that of Yunnan, isolation has contributed greatly to preserve the traditions. For decades here there has been only a bumpy road, and the electric current has come (only during the day) for about fifteen years.

But the wave of tourists that began in 2012 is changing the Mosuo culture worryingly. That year, a million and a half tourists visited the region, almost three times the year before. The lake had suddenly become more accessible: a second road was opened and the airport was completed (at 3.293 meters above sea level, it is the highest in Yunnan) allowing the arrival of almost 500 thousand more visitors. It is easy to see why tourists are attracted to this region: verdant peaks surround a crystalline lake whose shores are punctuated by the wooden houses of traditional villages – a Chinese St. Moritz, but with the addition of flags of Tibetan prayers.

Women are more reliable than men, “says La. We bring our children together, grow them, and we sisters serve the family. There is no need to ask for help from men
But the main attraction is the Kingdom of Women. “In the Mosuo tradition only females become heirs,” says La Cier, the eldest of six siblings, who became the head of the family when her mother died. In a long cotton skirt to the ground and a handmade red headdress, she tells how her sisters help keep the family working in the cities, while the other members – brothers and nephews – live at home. “Women are more reliable than men,” says La. We bring our children together, grow them, and we sisters serve the family. There is no need to ask for help from men “.

Besides being a breadwinner, Mosuo women have a quite unusual sexual freedom. Men and women do not form monogamous couples for life, but they practice walking marriage, “marriage on the way” (or wedding of one evening) in which the man visits the bedroom of the woman at night and returns to the mother’s house in the morning. The children born of these unions, which can be casual or last forever, become part of the woman’s clan – the five brothers and sisters of La have three different fathers.

“SYMPOSIUM ON THE SEWING OF THE SEA”: A MAGNIFICENT EVENING AT THE CASALE DEL MARE RESTAURANT

 

On August 15th each year, in Italy, in the Canton Ticino (Switzerland) and in the Republic of San Marino, the “Ferragosto” is celebrated. A festival with very ancient origins, already celebrated by the Ancient Romans under the name of “Feriae Augusti” (Rest of Augustus), with a date different from the current one: the First of August. It was one of the holidays with which, in the same month, the end of the agricultural work was celebrated. Some centuries later the Catholic Church wanted to make the Recurrence coincide with that of the Assumption of Mary in Heaven and the date was brought to the 15th of August.

But what made the “Ferragosto”, in Italy, a great “popular festival” occurred during the “Ventennio”, in 1931, when the Regime institutionalized it, combining it with a series of powerful facilities in transport and the endless holiday initiatives of the Associations Corporative weather conditions, allowing the birth of “Massa Tourism”.

“Casale del Mare” is an agritouristic residential complex born from the careful and careful restoration of an ancient farm.

A corner of paradise located on a panoramic and green hill, with a breathtaking view of one of the most beautiful stretches of the Tuscan coast.

“Casale del Mare” is part of a large and ambitious project, born from a dream of its owners, Fulvio Martini and Laura Marzari, who in 1994 succeeded in creating it, thus giving birth to “L’Agricola Agrilandia”.

“Agrilandia” includes not only the Farmhouse Farmhouse “Casale del Mare” and the “Fortulla” winery, but also another property outside the area (a tourist residence, “Corte Codella Nuova”, located in the green, in Viadana, in the Province of Mantua).

The “Casale del Mare” Restaurant is very welcoming; from inside you can enjoy the relaxing view of the park thanks to the fully glazed room on three sides. During the summer you can enjoy the beautiful garden and the romantic and large Veranda.

Marco Parillo has been the Executive Chef of the “Casale del Mare” Restaurant for about five years.

Marco was born in Caserta, December 23, 1985, since he was a child he had a special interest in the good recipes lovingly prepared by his Grandmother and her mother.

Raised with this innate and passionate talent, he attended and graduated as a catering technician and first pastry chef at the IPSSAR Hotel School “Angelo Celletti” in Formia (LT).

His first work experience, done during his years of study, saw him engaged in good restaurants such as “Aeneas’ Landing” by Gaeta, “Marconi 23” in Terracina and “Brusson” in Aosta (Ristorante Hotel Italia).

After graduating, attracted by the high innovative Spanish cuisine, he went to Barcelona, ​​where for a year he worked in the “Il Bellini” restaurant kitchen.

During this period, for eight months, he did an internship, a fantastic experience, at the Taller (workshop) of the legendary Restaurante “El Bulli” (Three Michelin Stars) of Chef Ferran Adrià Acosta.

Subsequently, for about a year he went to Ibiza, where he was Capo Partita at the “Ibiza Gran Hotel” and then Sous-Chef at the “Ocean Drive”. Also in Ibiza, he worked as a Chef (later as Executive Chef) in the opening of the “Nassau Beach Club” in Palma de Mallorca, where he remained for three years, actively taking care of other openings.

He later worked for the “Gruppo Ferran Adrià” following the opening of a Local on the innovative style of the Restaurants, of Albert and Ferran, recently inaugurated in Barcelona.

Roberto Conti is the Executive Chef of the “Trussardi alla Scala” Restaurant in Milan.

The “Trussardi alla Scala” Restaurant, opened in 2006, as can easily be seen from its name, is from the legendary Italian Fashion Company “Trussardi”, founded in 1911 by Dante Trussardi. Over the years the restaurant has reached great levels to obtain well “Two Michelin Stars”.

EASTER IN BALEARIC ISLANDS: BETWEEN ANCIENT RITES, RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS AND EXCELLENT GASTRONOMY

Easter is one of the best moments to get in touch with the most authentic soul of the Balearic Islands: during the Semana Santa the ancient rites, religious traditions and the excellent gastronomic proposal become protagonists in Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera.

The celebrations are many and different, but one thing unites surely all the Balearic islands: the optimagastronomy of the Easter period. Do not miss the “panades”, the “cocarrois”, the “robiols” and the “crespells”. Panades are based on salty pasta and contain lamb, pork and chicken, peas and cold cuts; perfect for vegetarians instead cocarrois, made of the same paste of the panades but stuffed with chard and raisins; for those who prefer the dessert, the robiols and crespells in the shape of a half moon or in the shape of stars and hearts filled with apricot and ricotta jam are excellent.

Mallorca
Easter is the perfect time to visit Mallorca, which in this period offers unique cultural and culinary attractions, as well as an ideal climate to visit it far and wide.
We start the Holy Thursday with “Sant Crist de la sang” in Palma de Mallorca: a spectacular procession that takes place through the streets of the historic center of Palma. More than twenty thousand hooded confreres, belonging to thirty official confraternities, carry the statue of Christ that leaves the Church around five in the afternoon and then returns towards evening. It is a real manifestation that originates from the deep-rooted traditions of the island. On Friday instead, the “Davallament” takes place in Pollença, which is less than an hour’s drive from Palma de Mallorca. It is a scenic representation that traces the stages of the last moments of Christ’s life; an authentic and intense experience that in some ways is almost magical: imagine walking 365 steps lit by torches to the sound of drums. Easter Sunday, on the other hand, is held the “Encontre” procession, a representation of the dialogue between the newly resurrected Jesus and his mother Mary inserted into an intense and solemn setting.

Minorca
The celebrations and parades during the Semana Santa begin on Palm Sunday with the first of the Easter processions: the Via Crucis which tells the story of Jesus from his condemnation to his crucifixion and burial. The most solemn event is the evening of Good Friday, when the processions of the “Santo Entierro” take place in the main cities. Starting from the parish church, various religious brotherhoods and towns, dressed in tunics and masks reminiscent of the Inquisition, carry sacred images in the streets, accompanied by the melancholy sound of local drums, trumpets and bands. The processions of the Santo Entierro in Mahon and Ciutadella also include the parade of allegorical floats with religious images, particularly moving and spectacular. Easter morning is the turn of the special “Procesa del Encuentro”, a tradition begun in Es Migjorn with the statues of the Risen Christ and the Virgin Mary who make their journey to meet in front of the church. In Ciutadella you can witness a very different and unusual tradition: LaMatança dels Bujots, or the killing of straw dolls: the dolls are hung around the city with a sign that highlights a problem (for example the little work, politics etc.) and, from noon on, they become targets of shooters who shoot them down literally.

Ibiza
Ibiza is an island full of Catholic tractions that, during the Easter period, you can admire in the various villages and especially in Eivissa. During Holy Week you can attend the Saint Miquel festival in a very characteristic setting, that of the Fortezza Church that dominates the surrounding landscape. On Good Friday the festivities move to Eivissa, with the parade of figures hooded by the Cathedral of Santa Maria de Les Neus through the streets of Dalt Villa, making the sound of the drums booming in a subdued and gloomy manner, only to end on Easter Sunday with the moving representation of the “Encontre”.

Formentera
In the Easter period Formentera is a paradise that invites you to take long walks along the coast, enjoy the festive events and, if the weather allows it, treat yourself to the first swim of the year. Even in Formentera events start on Palm Sunday and end on Easter Sunday with the procession of the “Encontre”. The festivities are shared between residents and tourists, and at lunchtime usually a popular meal is shared, the main dish of which is the cuinat – a stew of vegetables and legumes – accompanied by a good wine

Foreign investments: the Italian Scrooge choose the sun of Spain and Brazil

A recent analysis by ikh.villas has revealed the countries where our compatriots buy more luxury properties.

Foreign investments: the Italian Scrooge choose the sun of Spain and Brazil
Despite the epithet with which Italy is known all over the world, or “the beautiful country”, our compatriots choose to invest abroad. In particular, a research conducted by ikh.villas for the prestige real estate sector, has shown how the local Scrooge of the Duckbuds favor the hot places for their second homes (of course, luxury).

Observing the numbers well, it turns out that Spain and Brazil are the two countries with the highest percentage of Italians ready to invest in brick, with an average budget of 3.5 and 2.5 million euros respectively (and with a saving of about a million compared to those who choose to spend the winter in the United Arab Emirates).

Specifically, the most sought-after locations for Spain are the Ibiza party, about one investor every three, Marbella and Port d’Andratx in the south-western part of the island of Mallorca. About 20% of Italians who choose Brazil instead favor Salvador, followed by Florianopolis and Rio de Janeiro: third, but with investments that generally exceed 6 million euros.

Whoever chases the heat, but has a lower capital available, aims at the other eight states that complete this special classification. After the aforementioned Spain and Brazil, Italians who buy luxury properties abroad are targeting Dominican Republic, in third place with an average budget of 1.8 million euros, and Portugal. Followed by the sunny Florida, Malta (less exotic but closer) and the fascinating Barbados. Nona is Greece, which with its countless and beautiful islands requires slightly lower investments: 900 thousand euro is the figure that on average our compatriots are willing to spend to secure a place in the sun. Lucky them! Finally, to close the top ten we find a destination increasingly appreciated by low-budget travelers, that is South Africa.

Vip white week, the most exclusive ski destinations

If in the summer the international jet set targets locations such as Ibiza, Mykonos, Saint-Tropez etc., the question arises: where do VIPs go when temperatures are anything but mild? Simple, on the snow. Given their economic possibilities, why not give up a nice holiday on the most exclusive ski slopes in the world? The British newspaper The Telegraph has identified those that are the most loved by international stars belonging to the world of fashion, music, sport and cinema. So, to meet your heart character, just take a pen and paper and write down where to spend your next winter holiday.

The British actress Emma Watson, for example, cares about France and takes refuge in Mèribel for leisure and forget about all forms of stress. We are in the French department of Savoie, in the heart of the 3 Vallées or one of the most famous ski areas in the world that has so much to offer sportsmen. In addition to giving stunning scenery, in fact, allows you to enjoy wellness breaks, good food and a thousand and one activity.

If you go to Switzerland, you can take a look at the tourist region of Lenzerheide: this is where all winter sports enthusiasts meet, but also those who have a relaxing holiday in mind. Roger Federer knows that he is one of the most loyal. The offer is indeed rich and, thanks to the sun that seems to be a constant presence here, it is possible to crown every dream. One of the areas to keep in mind is the Arosa Lenzerheide ski area with 225 km of groomed trails. If the day is not long enough, thanks to SnowNight, the fun continues even when the sun goes down.
Even Prince William of England, Sarah Ferguson and Madonna love the charm of Swiss landscapes and specifically target Verbier, the most cosmopolitan of the Valais ski resorts where there is always something to do, see or taste. . It ranges from paragliding to elisci passing through a trip to museums until you get to the discovery of local products.

Flying to earth with stars and stripes, we arrive in Aspen (Colorado) where there are many famous skiers who are now at home like Mariah Carey, Michelle Obama and Ivanka Trump who are targeting this charming ski destination located in an exceptional setting : the Rocky Mountains. There is something for everyone. The goal is tempting to the most athletes ready to ski face to face with unspoiled nature as for those in search of relaxation as its center offers elegant cafes, restaurants and trendy boutiques from the likes of Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Gucci. There is also space for culture: contemporary art, in fact, awaits at the Aspen Art Museum, a fascinating structure both inside (for the works housed) and from the outside, because behind it there is so much charm, the Japanese architect Shigeru Ban.

From Greece to the Balearics here are the most spectacular landing places for your boat holiday

They are a well kept secret in the logbooks of the skippers who have discovered them in years of navigation in the Mediterranean. The hidden cove where to throw the anchor in perfect solitude, the sheltered from the furious mistral, the restaurant of the fishermen from the sea to the plate.

The added value of a boat holiday is the most beautiful landing places. From Greece to the Egadi to the Balearics, here are the most spectacular.

Just over three square kilometers in the Dodecanese archipelago, about fifty people, a small port, some tavern like Apolaxsi. No cars, so many goats and fishing nets stretched out in the sun. Arki, 7 miles from the best known Lipsi, is all here. It is the sea the must-have of the postage stamp. The star is Linnari, the most spectacular bay, with white sand and crystal water. It has the turquoise reflexes Tiganakia, or Blue Lagoon. The only event on 23 August: the festival of Panigiri, where the inhabitants and the few tourists go wild in traditional dances.

A few miles and you arrive at Halki, miniature of nearby Symi. A triumph of colors, so different from the brilliant white architecture of the Cyclades. In front of the parade of islets that resembles a coral reef. It is moored in the bay of Trachia, with the isthmus under the castle of 1300 with two beaches, the green islet of Alimnia or Areta, the most secluded.

To the west, small worlds are concentrated in a small space, in Levanzo, six square kilometers in all, where sailing in the heart of the protected Aegadian area. Shepherds who travel the island on the back of a mule, fishermen who paint the colorful wooden boats in Cala Dogana in front of the small village of white houses, lobster directly from the sea to the trattoria Paradiso. Green pastures, fruit trees and the Mediterranean maquis of 400 different species cover the interior. Cala Minnola is the pearl of the coast, a sea mirror lapped by dwarf pines. The Grotta del Genovese, on the opposite side, contains a treasure, engravings and colored paintings in red and black of the Palaeolithic period that represent dancers, oxen, donkeys and fawns. We forget the world in Cala Fredda, a blue dream.

But even if you rented in Majorca in the Balearic archipelago, partly colonized by droves of tourists, Germans in the lead, reserve surprises. The habitué is well aware that a few hours stop at the overcrowded Es Trenc, turquoise sea and three kilometers of white sand dunes, which has nothing to envy to the Caribbean and point the bow towards Cap de Formentor, famous for the lighthouse and the white sandy beaches, Cala Figuera and Cala Murta. And, to the north-east, the beaches of Cala Agulla, Alcudia and Cala Ratjada. The red and white tower of Cabo Llebeig d’Isola announces the island of Cabrera. It is moored to the dead bodies (to be reserved 20 days in advance) and goes around with the tender of this extraordinary nature reserve, a national park that hosts turtles, dolphins and corals. A path climbs to the castle of 1300 which dominates Puerto Cabrera.

Returning to our waters, we escape the invasion of boats of the Costa Smeralda in Carloforte, on the volcanic island of San Pietro. It is a wild Sardinia, free-range, where you can discover caves, cliffs overlooking the sea like the Mezzaluna and the Conca, stretches of sand and the power of the Faraglioni called the Colonne. To the east, it is a good sheltered Cala Guidi, more sheltered and collected. Before allowing a dinner on board based on the gold of the island, still caught in tuna, which everyone calls the tuna race.

Gianluca Vacchi new resident dj of the Amnesia of Ibiza

amnesia

.

The organization of the residence is entrusted to the Made in Italy group that has been operating on the island since the late nineties, first with a house proposal, then with the Flower Power and now with Latin music. Gianluca Vacchi will undoubtedly involve his many “genre” friends like J Balvin and Luis Fonsi.

The announcement comes on the day of the launch of the second single on Spinnin ‘Records’ Trump It’. So it’s good that the party sounds will not only be Latin but will open up to the electro house.

Ibiza loses Paris Hilton, one of his muses

The businesswoman ends five years as a ‘dj’ resident at the party held every summer Sunday

Paris Hilton attacks again with another summer song
Paris Hilton: “I’m a business woman, not a fool”
Paris Hilton: “Ibiza is my favorite place in the world”
The well-known businesswoman and DJ, Paris Hilton, has announced that she stops playing music at the well-known Amnesia nightclub in Ibiza as she has been doing for the past five summers. The designer has also announced through a statement that her collaboration with the club ends in which every Sunday of the summer her Foam & Diamonds party was celebrated.

The multimillionaire has been grateful to fans who have supported her in recent years attending one of the most successful events of the club season on the island. “I want to thank my fans and the public for their loyalty and enthusiasm and for Amnesia’s professionalism and confidence,” says the designer. “Together we have lived five wonderful years in Ibiza, a very special place for me,” he said in the statement.

The socialite advances that closes its stage in the club “to continue creating dreams and providing unique experiences” although without clarifying details of its future plans on the island. Hilton clarifies that the end of her time at Amnesia is not the end of her visits to the Pitiusas. “See you in Ibiza next summer” clarifies.

The businesswoman is immersed in the preparations for her wedding with actor Chris Zylka. On January 2, Hilton published several photographs on her Instagram profile that portray her 32-year-old partner kneeling in the snow holding a box with a ring. Both were engaged during the holidays they spent in Aspen, Colorado. The businesswoman said then to feel excited about being committed “with the love of my life” and for being the “luckiest girl in the world”.

War on plastics, after the “strategy” a great European research

Europe has recently become the leader in the fight against plastic, thanks to the strategy announced just over two weeks ago: by 2030, all plastic packaging will have to be reused or recycled and the use of microplastics will have to be drastically reduced. “It is a problem that concerns us closely: the Mediterranean is one of the seas most affected by this problem, worldwide.The impacts of marine litter on marine biota within marine protected areas (MPA), including species in of extinction, they remain poorly known, but it is clear that prevention and mitigation measures are urgently needed “, explains Maria Cristina Fossi, an ordinary professor of ecology at the University of Siena.

Just a few days ago, the European Union (Med – Interreg) decided to finance the Plastic Busters MPAs project – among whose coordinators, in addition to Fossi, there is also Teresa Romeo dell’Ispra (Higher Institute for Environmental Protection and Research) – which includes actions that cover the entire marine litter management cycle, from monitoring and evaluation to prevention and mitigation, as well as actions to strengthen the network between the protected pelagic and coastal marine areas located in Italy, France, Spain, Croatia, Albania and Greece.

“This is the first basin-scale project in which EU and Ipa countries join forces to tackle marine litter through a coordinated approach,” Fossi explains. The impact of the microplastics does not save even those arms that, at least in the first analysis, would seem less affected by the problem. A study just published (February 5, 2018) on Trends in Ecology & Evolution, to which Fossi has participated working alongside Australian and American colleagues, sheds light on this theme by clarifying that in the Sea of ​​Cortez, in the lower California, a stretch of ocean populated by many large marine animals, the researchers calculated a presence of 0.7 plastic fragments per cubic meter. “So a whale shark, in that environment that we think almost untouched, ingested about 170 plastic particles a day,” Fossi observes.

Microplastics and marine pollution, however, have been discussed a lot and often in an alarmist manner, especially regarding the impacts on human health. Studies confirm a significant pollution rate and an impact on the biota that leaves no room for doubt. But how much of this plastic arrives on our tables? Fossi and colleagues are about to publish one of the largest studies conducted on the topic in the Mediterranean area: the researchers examined the presence of plastic in 450 fish specimens found in Italian seas. The incidences vary considerably depending on the species and the area in which it was fished, but the percentages range from 48% to 8%, as in the case of cod. Citing one of the edible species, such as mullet, the percentages are from 28% to 15%. “Even these data must be read carefully, on the subject there have already been too many alarms: a 28% incidence, for example, means that out of 100 individuals examined, we can find at most one or two plastic fragments smaller than 5 mm “, continues Fossi.

The presence of microplastics in some edible species should not encourage conjectures on the transmission of these pollutants to humans: when we consume fish, we eat its muscle tissue. The fulcrum of the matter, therefore, must be identified in the passage of the contaminants contained in the microplastics to the muscle tissue. “To date, however, there is no scientific evidence of this element”, continues Fossi. The number of fragments identified by the study is very small and probably does not constitute a determinant from the toxicological point of view. “In the coming months we will proceed with the analysis of the muscle tissues of these animals to understand how many contaminants transferred from the plastics could end up in edible muscle tissue”, explains the expert.

Kisses and snowshoes, hot air balloons and cuddles. the world for Valentine’s Day

Notice to seafarers: if you do not bear romanticism and mawkishness, if in principle you do the opposite of what the marketing calendar indicates, if your you (or him) has just downloaded you, thanks for clicking but you can not even read this article. Which is dedicated to some examples of how the great car of tourism is setting up under the aegis of an innocent Saint: Valentine’s Day. Naturally and symmetrically, all those who instead await the surrounding days to February 14 to establish, consolidate, strengthen bonds of love by inviting her (or him) to an unforgettable journey is possible that they find here some ideas. With two notes well: we do not indicate the prices because it would be like inserting the receipt in the case of the ring; and eye because this year on 14/2 falls on Ash Wednesday and do not say that you had not been warned.

Let’s start from afar. In Oman, a peaceful oasis in the tumultuous Middle East, with the formula “Due cuori e una tenda” you will live a unique experience in the mobile tented camps equipped with all comforts such as a shower and a private bathroom. For the fateful evening: gourmet dinner under the stars in the light of candles and oil lamps. Info here and here.

Even more distant, and much, is New Caledonia, a French territory east of Australia. Here you play a jolly of absolute level: it is in fact in the northwest of the island that is the famous Heart of Voh, the expanse of mangroves that, seen from above, form a heart. You can admire it by climbing at high altitude with an excursion by jeep or by flying with an ultralight that, however, boycotted Valentine’s Day allowing the boarding to only one passenger at a time.

Enough exoticism, we come to Europe and precisely to Austria. A few hours drive from Milan is the Kufstein region. The name does not sound exactly soft and romantic but you trust it. Just as you have to trust the translation of “Zweisamkeit” which is not a slogan of an Austrian barracks but the description of “a heavenly state in which two souls find themselves, isolating themselves from the world and suffice only to themselves”. State that is proposed here and cultivated with spa, dinners in love nests, romantic excursions and ayurveda treatments. This is an arsenal that, with infinite variations, is practically available anywhere in the Alps, but here in Kufsteinerland there is the advantage of being in an environment that is at the same time quiet and close to the large ski area of ​​the Wilder Kaiser.

Still Austria with the cozy 40 hotels in Austria for Italy where Italian is spoken. “Valencinian” packages are offered in the great classics of the country, namely Vienna and Salzburg, but also in Villach, home to a beautiful traditional carnival. In Vienna you can get there (from Rome) with direct flights of Vueling that offers special prices from Italy for Dubrovnik, Marseilles, Malaga and Amsterdam on the occasion of the saint of lovers.

If you prefer to stay in the country, the Hotel Pfoesl in Nova Ponente (BZ) is in the sunniest country in the whole of South Tyrol, has just been renovated and boasts 3 exclusive and private chalets nestled in the woods as well as a complete range of treatments inspired by the party of lovers.

Always in Italy and always in the mountains, Valle d’Aosta aims at variety. Relax for lovers at the Spa of Pré-Saint-Didier (the Today and Forever package wins our prize for the best title) or those of Monterosaterme which also offer snowshoeing with a guide (our solidarity at the guide reggi-moccolo) and high-altitude dinner . In Courmayeur, on the 14th, hot chocolate offered in the square but those who prefer the silences of nature should go to Cogne or Val di Rhèmes where they are offered to couples naturalistic day and night excursions (with dinner).

Too cold? Then Umbria, which many do not know are the true homeland of Valentine’s Day. It was from Terni and here on 18/2 there will be the Promise Festival. No, no, it refers to the ongoing electoral campaign, but to hundreds of couples who, in the Basilica, will exchange commitments hoping to be more durable and reliable. Info here.

Let’s go back to exotic places with a quick overview. Sandals Resort suggests to stay at home on the 14th but to give on that date a dream stay. The partner may also not know that you, by buying by February 28, have brought home a discount of up to 55% in facilities in the most beautiful sites in the Caribbean.

Involuntary, it is hoped, the irony of the proposal titled “Kisses under the Banyan” launched by a famous Mauritian local that, in fact, is called French Kiss Bar. But in the beautiful archipelago is all a flourish of initiatives in the name of relaxation , romance and poetry that you can deepen here and here.

The beautiful spring of the Balearic islands

The evocative Easter celebrations are an opportunity to discover the archipelago in the
A trip to the Balearics during Easter as well as immersion in a truly mystical atmosphere, is also a dive into the gastronomic tradition: the must for every gourmet are the “panades”, “cocarrois”, the “robiols” and the “crespells” . The panades are based on salty pasta and contain lamb, pork and chicken, peas and cured meats; perfect for vegetarians instead cocarrois made of the same paste of the panades but stuffed with chard and raisins; instead robiols are filled cakes in the shape of half moon and crespells in the shape of stars and hearts are filled with apricot and ricotta jam.

Four islands, four worlds – For those staying in Majorca, you can book tours of historic palaces and fincas, finely furnished manor houses rich in history dating back to the thirteenth / fifteenth century. Among the most famous and representative La Granja and Els Calderers. In Menorca do not miss the tour of prehistoric megalithic monuments, well-preserved stone structures dating back to the period between 2000 and 1000 BC. which at the time served as burial places or defensive towers. Those who choose Ibiza can experience the island from a naturalistic point of view, visiting two national parks of particular interest for their ecological value: the Park of Ses Salines, the Es Vedrà reserve, Es Vedranell and the islets of the west. In Formentera, a complete tour of the island is possible with a 15 km journey along the north coast from Es Caló de Sant Agustí and ending with el Faro. Walking we discover the camí de Sa Pujada, with numerous caves of the megalithic period, descending towards the pier of Sa Cala and passing through some streams with incredible views.

The Crist de la sang in Palma de Mallorca – Returning to Easter, the Holy Week celebrations take place in the various localities of the islands and are all characterized by the great devotion and the heartfelt participation of the faithful. Among the most important celebrations, the first of great impact is that of Holy Thursday in the city of Palma de Mallorca with the “Sant Crist de la sang”: a spectacular procession with more than twenty thousand hooded confreres, belonging to the thirty official confraternities, carrying the Christ through the streets of the historic center to the rhythm of the drums.

The Via Crucis of Pollenca – Good Friday is very popular in the town of Pollenca, (Majorca) where the “Davallament” takes place one of the most intense celebrations of the archipelago for the intense and realistic representation of the last moments of Christ. A long procession ascends to the church at the top of the hill, known as Calvary, staging an intense and painful Way of the Cross; at the top of the hill there is the crucifixion and then the deposition of Christ. At this point begins the ‘Davallament’: a procession on the 365 steps lit by torches, to the pressing sound of the drums, in a solemn atmosphere and underlined by the glorious song of a “Miserere”, where the Christ is carried in procession by some representatives of the confraternities through the city.

Ibiza in Spa, the magic of the winter sea

Palladium Palace Ibiza Resort & Spa
In order to feel good with others first of all you have to feel good about yourself. Coping with everyday life with the right charge and energy is not always a simple reason why, one-off, you need to recharge your batteries. As? Everyone has his method. What about a trip to Ibiza? Far from the summer chaos, the pearl of the Balearics is able to give magical moments of pure relaxation. To prove it is the Palladium Palace Ibiza Resort & Spa, located in Playa d’en Bossa, or the most famous tourist area of ​​the island, the ideal place to spend a pleasant holiday. The important thing is to forget, completely, the existence of the clock.

Inside the Palladium Palace Ibiza Resort & Spa is the Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness, a state-of-the-art place where technology and design assure guests with an unforgettable experience. Here you are really spoiled for choice: you can relax and escape the daily routine by experimenting with treatments that take advantage of the precious properties of essential oils made according to the principles of ayurveda practice such as Neem oil, Triphala, Centella asiatica and lotus flowers, they go to stimulate all five senses. For example, try the Zentropia massage which includes a combination of six different massage techniques. It starts with a relaxing treatment followed by a deeper one that affects the tissues of the areas where the accumulation of stress is greater. It continues with aromatherapy, shiatsu, stretching and ends with a head and face massage. The holistic massage that helps body and mind relax. Thanks to the beneficial properties of essential oils, it is possible to reduce stress, relieve muscle stiffness and stimulate circulation.

The sea is good, especially in winter. It is therapeutic. If in summer you have to protect yourself from sun damage, when the rays are less threatening the remise en forme is assured. Just close your eyes, breathe deeply the healthy air and, once freed the mind, you let yourself be lulled by the sound of the waves while walking, barefoot, on the sand ready to get full of well-being.

Who has never heard of Ibiza? Its fame precedes it. We speak of an island that provides vacationers with fun and lots of lightheartedness. But not only. If in summer it is chaotic, out of season it changes face and, stripping itself of that put on transgressive and partying, it becomes a therapeutic destination. The sea in winter does not have to intimidate, indeed, it has its own reason. Do not forget that the Isla Blanca, thanks to its cultural wealth and biodiversity, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. What see? The offer is rich: there is the cathedral dedicated to Our Lady of the Snow and still the castle, the Phoenician site of Sa Caleta, the necropolis of Puig des Molins and, of course, the historical center of the capital Eivissa. Boredom here is not contemplated, ever.

Outside the discos, there is an Ibiza all slow and relax

Raise your hand who, in front of the name “Ibiza”, does not immediately think of an immense open-air disco. Among the best in the world, of course, but still a destination that has made the smallest hours his business card best known internationally. There is a time of year, however, between the closing and opening parties of the most famous clubs (from the second week of October until after Easter) in which the island changes its face and turns into the ideal place (even family friendly!) to spend a holiday or just a long weekend in total relaxation.

 

In the footsteps of the first hippies who chose the Spanish island as their refuge far from an increasingly globalized society, in the months away from mass tourism there is all the time, the way and the space to explore Ibiza off the usual routes. If, in addition to the most emblazoned beaches, the best spots to spread umbrellas and towels and, for the more adventurous ones, also take a bath, are Cala d’en Serra, Punta Galera, Cala Xarraca, Es Canaret and Cala d’Hort, the trekking enthusiasts can count on a network of well-marked trails.

Taking advantage of the perfect temperature, typical of the “out of season”, to walk (always from eternal spring, so to speak!), Here the options for leisure or training are really many. From the village of Sant Josep, for example, it takes about 2 hours to climb up to one of the highest and most scenic spots in Ibiza. Sa Talaia, with its 475 meters of altitude, is reached by an easy and pleasant excursion that passes between picturesque rural houses and fragrant pine woods.

In 4 hours, then, the entirely flat route that leads from Playa d’en Bossa to Ses Salines and then ends at Es Cavallet, offers an evocative “taste” of one of the most beautiful coastlines of Ibiza. Longer but beautiful, however, is the route (lasting about 6 hours) which, from the village of Cala Bou, ends in the idyllic Playas del Comte. Far from the most animated centers and the historical capital Eivissa, then, chaotic by day but fascinating in the evening for a lonely walk in the alleys of Dalt Vila, the island is characterized by seraphic villages like Santa Agnès de Corona, Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera and Sant Josep de Sa Talaia.

And if the shopping opportunities in markets and markets (more or less hippies, above all the legendary Las Dalias … since 1985!) Are less abundant than the summer, other “mythical” addresses like the Bar Anita of Sant Carles de Peralta (a must from the 1960s) or the Can Cosmi restaurant on the church square of Santa Agnès de Corona will surely have a free table for you.

48 hours in Mallorca, between art and fun

Thanks to its mild climate, long beaches, spectacular nature, affordable prices and a monumental capital, Majorca is a popular destination for all seasons. As Ibiza has been a destination for artists all over the world for decades, it has a more relaxed atmosphere than its eccentric neighbor and – also because of the average age of its visitors – is worth more for daytime activities than for nightlife and nightlife.

FIRST DAY

Morning

The visit starts in Palma, the capital with monuments, shops, restaurants and clubs to have fun. A must is the Gothic Cathedral of 1230, the tallest in Spain and its rose window (12.5 meters) is the largest in this style. The polychrome windows of its apse, like lamps, balustrades and iron railings, are the work of Antoni Gaudì, the greatest exponent of Catalan modernism, author of the Sagrada Familia of Barcelona. The Cathedral is located opposite the fourteenth-century Palau dell’Almudaina, the castle built by the first king of Mallorca. To grasp the origins of so much wealth you have to take a trip to La Lonja, the nearby merchant’s loggia divided into three naves with vertiginous vaults.

Afternoon

At siesta time you can take a break at the Platja de Palma, the long stretch of sand south-east of Palma, is the main seaside resort of the island, bordered by hotels in which lodges those who want to combine the stay with the sea with sports, nightclubs and nightlife.

At sunset

Climb to Bellver Castle to enjoy the best views of the bay of Palma. And in the evening you walk through the alleys of the old town full of econimic restaurants, tapas bars (the tasty Spanish snacks) and original rooms. Like Abaco (calle San Juan 1): set in a late sixteenth century building, it is the triumph of the baroque among fruit piled on the floor, chandeliers, flowers, rugs, sofas and fireplace, works as a cocktail bar with lyrical music.

SECOND DAY

Morning

The whole day is dedicated to the visit of the north coast, where monumental towns and villages alternate with the most spectacular nature of the island. It begins in Valldemossa: it hosted the love escape of Chopin with George Sand, narrated by the writer in Winter in Mallorca. They stayed in a cell of the fifteenth century Certosa, where Chopin composed the Preludes: adjacent to the church, it was built in a dependency of the Royal Palace.

We visit the cells with the flowered terraces where the musician lived, the library, the cell of the prior, the church and the pharmacy with antique glass and ceramics. And a picture gallery with paintings by Picasso, Mirò and Tapies. At the beginning of the twentieth century, the nearby Palazzo del King Sancho hosted numerous South American artists, including the Argentine Jorge Luis Borges. Today it has become a tourist attraction with folkloristic dance performances from the Balearics and piano concerts with music by Chopin.

Afternoon

Following the coast we stop at the Foradada, a promontory of rock – on which a large window opens – that flows into the sea. From here we reach Deiá: resting on a hill, it is the artists’ borough, eighty painters lived there. Their paintings are on display at La Residencia, the most beautiful hotel in Mallorca, consisting of an eighteenth-century house and stone buildings scattered between terraces of olive trees, palms and lemons: it is frequented by VIPs like Sting, Bruce Willis, Brian Ferry , Bruce Spreensteen and Antonio Banderas. His El Olivo is considered the best Mallorcan restaurant.

Continue to Port Soller, with the bay closed by two lighthouses, and to Soller, where the botanical garden can be admired all the varieties of plants of the Balearics. And do not miss a stop in the stone village of Fornalutx, the most precious of Mallorca, with the steep alleys and the church, embellished by a large lemon, perched above the square. Then between mountains and lakes you reach the peninsula of Formentor with the turquoise wonder of Cala Figuera and breathtaking views of cobalt blue seabeds closed between precipices, up to Cap Formentor, dominated by a lighthouse.

Along the Gulf of Pollença, take the road that leads back to Palma through an agricultural area dotted with hundreds of windmills. Here, Ca’n Gordiola deserves a stop, a glass manufacturing factory with demonstrations, showrooms and exhibition of the finest pieces.

Carnival 2018 in the Canary Islands: the most colorful festival in Europe

Carnival 2018 at the Canary Islands. One of the unmissable events of the Carnival in Europe is definitely the one in the Canary Islands, one of the most beautiful and colorful. Because yes, even if we are not right inside the Old Continent, but in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Morocco, the Canaries belong to Spain and therefore to Europe. In all the islands it is celebrated, even in the smaller towns, with street parties, music and parades of masks and allegorical floats. A show that recalls the liveliness of the Rio de Janeiro Carnival and that for the music, the samba schools and the dancers in costume is very similar, even if in small size.

Here there is all the island’s vivacity, accompanied by the desire to party and forget everything, typical of the carnival. The other point in favor of Carnival in the Canaries is the mild climate: you can be outdoors with your costume or with light clothes, practically summer, and do not feel cold. A dream for those who are cold and suffer from being outdoors in costume at carnival.

The most important parades of the Canarian Carnival are held in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, with the performance of masked groups, murgas music groups and samba schools with dancers like in Rio. Lots of music and fun for everyone.

The events of the Canary Carnival 2018 go from late January to 13 February, Shrove Tuesday. The program has variations depending on the place.

The carnival of the Canary Islands has a Caribbean style, with a river of colorful and extravagant masks, dancers and musicians pouring through the streets in festive parades, escorted by allegorical floats. A contagious atmosphere of celebration that overwhelms the audience of visitors every year more numerous. A very pleasant outdoor party, thanks to the mild climate.

Coma from the Spanish tradition, the carnival celebrations officially end on Ash Wednesday with the Sardinian Entierro, the burial of a large papier-mâché fish that officially marks the end of Carnival and the beginning of Lent.

In Las Palmas, the most important city in Gran Canaria, there is a wild party, under the motto of “hasta que el cuerpo aguante” which means “as long as the body resists”, quite indicative of how it will be celebrated: dancing all night long, until next morning. A month of celebrations that culminates with performances by murgas music groups and samba schools. The program includes parades of allegorical floats, folk dance performances, concerts of local and South American music. The other cities of Gran Canaria where celebrations are held with masked parades, dances and shows, are Maspalomas and San Bartolomé de Tirajana. Then, do not miss the small village festivals, the romerias, as well as the Carnaval de los Indianos in the Triana quarter of Las Palmas, one of the oldest in the city.

The most famous and important Carnival of the Canary Islands is that of Tenerife, the second most popular in the world after that of Rio de Janeiro, with which it is twinned. The parades and celebrations take place in the city of Santa Cruz, which every year welcomes an incredible number of visitors from all over the world.

The party on the streets of Santa Cruz de Tenerife starts on Friday before Tuesday Grasso, with a spectacular opening parade, which sees groups of murgas, samba dancers, allegorical floats and groups of masks of all colors parading. During the festivities, thousands of people dance in costume all night long.

Throughout the island of Tenerife the carnival is celebrated with parades of floats, dances, music, local and South American folkloric dance and many shows. Also here, on Ash Wednesday, the Sardinian burial ritual is celebrated, the Entierro della Sardina.

Even the island of Fuerteventura celebrates Carnival with shows, dances and street parties. The main locations, where the most important celebrations are held, are Puerto del Rosario and Corralejo, but there are plenty of festive occasions throughout the island

A little further to the north-east of Fuerteventura and easily accessible by sea is the island of Lanzarote, with its spectacular volcanic landscape. Here the main carnival festivities are held in Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen, nearby towns, located along the south-east coast of the island.

on the other islands Finally we point out the carnival parties on the other smaller islands of the Canary archipelago: in Santa Cruz de La Palma on the island of La Palma, and in San Sebastian on the island of La Gomera.

Spain: the fragrant spring of the Balearics

Almond and orange trees in bloom announce the happiest season in Mallorca and Ibiza

Between January and March, when most of Europe is in the grip of winter frost, an unusual phenomenon occurs in the Balearic islands: the flowering of almond and orange trees, a triumph of colors and scents that signals the return of summer.

In short, it is the right moment to enjoy this fantastic Mediterranean archipelago, especially the islands of Majorca and Ibiza, in search of the many hidden historical, artistic and natural treasures, in a favorable season but not yet crowded with tourists.

The “rutas” of almond blossoms – There are many varieties of almonds produced on the island and their organoleptic quality above average, gives it an exceptional added value. To this is added the scenic beauty of almond fields in particular in the first months of the year, when the plants are filled with white flowers, giving a touch of charm to the island landscape. It is undoubtedly the perfect time to explore the island along the rutas of blooming almond trees and enjoy this gift of nature. Taking a walk through the plantations of Llucmajor, you can stop in one of the most important and vast talaiotic villages of Mallorca, Capcorb Vell. From the promontory of Puig de Randa it is possible to enjoy an excellent panoramic view of the entire Pla de Mallorca comarca.

Ancient traditions – In Santa Agnès de Corona, a small agricultural village located in the western part of the island of Ibiza, every year on a Saturday in early February, on the occasion of the patron saint’s day, one of the most popular activities is celebrated. This is the traditional Llum d’Ametller night walk where participants walk from Sant Antoni to Santa Agnès via Cala Salada and the Vall de Corona, surrounded by the flowering almond trees typical of this time of year. The route is completed in about 2 and a half hours and upon arrival you can taste a dinner based on torrada, sobrassada, sandwiches and disco music for all tastes. On Sunday morning the athletes have an appointment with the popular Flor d ‘Ametller, organized by the Club of Athletics sa Raval.

The golden valley of Majorca – For more than 600 years in Sóller, in the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana, in Majorca, oranges are grown in what has been called the “golden valley”. These citrus fruits arrived in Majorca thanks to the sailors and Arab traders who began to cultivate them: the water richness of the Sierra de Tramuntana combined with the warm sun typical of the Mediterranean areas, then did the rest, making this place luxuriant. Today in Sóller, more than 120,000 orange trees are cultivated, giving the juiciest and most aromatic oranges of Spain, from which the Angel d’Or is produced, a fruity and liqueur distillate to be siped alone, with ice, or as an ingredient of fruity cocktails.

The train of orange trees in bloom – From 1912 the Tren de Sóller joins Palma to Sóller, passing through the splendid landscapes of these citrus groves. Once used to transport oranges, this electric train still runs today with the original wagons and materials, offering an excursion among the colors and scents of this area of ​​the island. The convoy leaves every day from the heart of Palma where its welcoming station is located, designed by the Mallorcan architect Gaspar Bennàssar. In 55 minutes passengers will be captivated by the beauty of the Sierra de Tramuntana landscape and the orange blossom aroma, having the sensation of reaching the valley of orange trees almost too quickly.

From Seville to Bilbao passing through Spain. Where to go and what to do in 2018

You, perhaps, are not yet thinking about holidays or bridges. But there are those who do it for you. They are the tourism agencies, which between January and February are doing their best to put together “windows” synoptic about everything that will happen in their parts from now to … Christmas. This is the case, among others, of Spain, which takes advantage of the recent choice of Lonely Planet, which has named Seville the best city in the world to visit in 2018 to hook its train of proposals.

Seville was set for the Iron Throne and this would be enough to project it in the tourist empyrea of ​​the year but less ephemeral promises to be the 400th anniversary of the birth of the great Baroque painter Esteban Murillo: eight exhibitions, concerts, itineraries, conferences will animate the city ​​already beautiful in itself thanks to the pedestrianization of the historic center.

Tapas lovers will find tapas for their teeth in Leòn, capital of Spanish gastronomy 2018 with 1200 restaurants and over 5 bars per 1000 inhabitants. Around the spectacular Gothic cathedral, it will be all a swarm of gastronomic initiatives, excellent opportunities to taste the famous chorizo, hams and other typical dishes.

In Valencia the year just begun will mark the 20th anniversary of the City of Arts and Sciences designed by Santiago Calatrava in 1998 while in Salamanca another anniversary will be celebrated, this time of a much older cultural institution. The University was in fact founded in the distant 1218 and will be celebrated with a rich program of cultural events and shows including the world premiere of the opera “Old World. New World “by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt.

Let’s go back to the art to remember the closing of the circle, or rather the Mirò triangle which includes the three spaces dedicated to the artist: the Fundaciò Pilar by Joan Mirò in Palma de Mallorca, the Fundaciò Joan Mirò in Barcelona and the Fundaciò Mas Mirò in Mont- Roig del Camp in Tarragona. The news is the latter with the opening to the public of the Masìa di Mirò next 20 April.

Popular religiosity, and not only that, is very important in the Iberian Peninsula and this year there are at least two events that underline it. The first Teresian Jubilee Year is being celebrated at Avila, following the Pope’s decision to grant the diocese of Avila a Jubilee year every time the celebration of the solemnity of Saint Teresa (October 15) falls on Sunday. There are three new Teresian itineraries along the Castilian province that are added to the already existing one.

The other event has Asturias as a backdrop. In the sanctuary of Our Lady of Covadonga we remember the events linked to the origins of this place of faith, in turn linked to the initial events of the Reconquista.

We end this partial roundup with Bilbao, crossed by a real competition fever. In fact, the Basque city will host the final of the Rugby Challenge Cup and Champions Cup (11 and 12 May), the final event of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and the closing ceremony of the MTV’s Europe Music Awards, a special edition for 25 Anniversary.

VIP holidays, a summer 2017 in the sign of luxury

Among private jets, villas with every comfort and yachts that look like floating hotels, the stars not only in our house make the followers grow pale

Ostentation: with this word we can summarize the summer 2017 of VIPs. Between luxurious villas and private jets, the stars do not do anything to hide their bank account and with social media shots make their followers pale. Ibiza, Maldives, Dubai, Capri and Miami are just some of the places where the rich relax between excess and luxury. Wanda Nara and Icardi, Belen Rodriguez, Gianluca Vacchi, Cristiano Ronaldo and many others know this well.

It is impossible not to mention the millionaire relaxation of the couple Wanda Nara-Mauro Icardi. The bomber of Inter does not pay any expense to make his family feel good: to reach Dubai and Ibiza, the two have taken advantage of private jets (with lots of space reserved for their dog) and have rented mega-villas with every comfort. To relax, they did not miss the super-swimming pools with crystal clear water, in which they can have fun with their children.

Even the supermodels Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner do not miss anything this summer: their three-story yacht is a real floating hotel, and when they leave do not give up flaming watercraft, on which to have fun, take the sun and – why not – seduce the visitors of the French Antibes.
Gianluca Vacchi, you know, is one of the kings of luxury. In fact, from the Balearic Islands, he sends postcards from his dream yacht accompanied by a pounding dance music. In his sweet five-star life, he can not even miss some ‘little’ vice: from his Instagram profile the Italian entrepreneur has in fact shared his personal breakfast … “floating”.
Despite long ago complained of lack of liquidity, Claudia Galanti does not give up the comforts: Capri, Sardinia and Saint-Tropez are the theater of the luxury holidays of the sexy little mermaid, who tries to make their children feel good too, having fun with them sheltered under the sunshade protected from the scorching rays of the sun.
Amalfi coast, Sicily, Los Angeles, Polynesia and Ibiza. Who wrote this “humble” tour to relax from the hard work? The most unexpected couple of the last years: Chiara Ferragni and Fedez. The most influenced influencer on Instagram and the rapper from the Platinum and Gold Records decided to have fun all over the world with cuddles and kisses.
Who is that Portuguese player known for his “head shots” millionaires? Obviously Cristiano Ronaldo, who with his Georgina Rodriguez wanted to rent, in Ibiza, a beautiful villa with a slightly smaller park on the island itself. The couple Belen Rodriguez-Andrea Iannone is also not to be missed,
Finally, Belen Rodriguez could not miss: the showgirl relaxed in Ibiza with Andrea Iannone, despite the rumors of rupture and bad mood between the two. In fact, the couple on the Balearic Islands decided to rent not a villa, but two, perhaps providing for separations during the course of the holiday. With the motorcyclist, however, the sexy Argentine has also given herself a long relax a

Here are seven coves not to be missed in the Balearic Islands.

Balearic, seven hidden coves not to be missed in Mallorca, Ibiza, Formentera and Menorca The archipelago of the Balearic Islands is really precious, for its beauty and privacy, as well as for the presence of a marine ecosystem postcard. According to the latest ISTAT data, Spain is the most chosen destination for Italians for long vacations abroad (12%). In addition, according to data from the Spanish Ministry of Energy and Tourism, in 2016 the Italians who visited Spain were 3,733,716, registering an increase of 5.6% compared to the previous year. Almost 700,000 Italians have arrived in the Balearic Islands, or 5.6% more than in 2015. Hundredrooms, the online comparison of accommodation and holiday homes, has selected some of the most beautiful bays of this archipelago. Beaches that preserve a natural and uncontaminated naturalness that makes them true earthly paradises.

1. Cala Tuent (Escorca, Majorca)
Tuent, combined with the famous Sa Calobra beach, is one of the best seaside areas near the town of Escorca. Made of stones and pebbles, at the foot of the Puig Major massif, it is an ideal place to relax in the Sierra de Tramuntana.

 

2. Cala Varques (Manacor, Majorca)
It is the “Cala Vergine” of Majorca par excellence. It is located far from the highway, and the only thing that is perceived is the sound of the sea breaking on the shoreline. The steep rocks that surround the area allow you to admire the crystal blue of the sea, thus enjoying a unique view.

 

3. Cala Romantica (S’Estany d’en Mas, Majorca)
White sand beach, crystal clear water and shallow, is a great place to see the best sunsets. Furthermore, in the seabeds of Cala Romantica, a paradise is hidden, especially for divers: a group of submerged tunnels of prehistoric times.

 

4. Cala Turqueta (Ciutadella, Menorca)
It is one of the most fascinating places on the Island, offering a postcard view. Menorca is a natural paradise and Turqueta is its emblem, surrounded by a Mediterranean pine forest that is reflected in the turquoise color of the sea, from which the creek takes its name.

 

5. Cala Salada (Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza)
Its great beauty lies in the sunsets that can be contemplated from the beach. In the crowded island of Ibiza, which in summer is filled with countless tourists, just in Cala Saladeta you can instead find a little privacy, since access to the beach is only possible through a steep passage through the pines.

 

6. Cala d’en Serra (Sant Joan de Labritja, Ibiza)
Lost in the north of the island of Ibiza and unsurpassed in its beauty, Cala d’en Serra is a beach not visited by tourists, and for this reason it guarantees authentic relaxation in an intimate setting. The best way to access it is on foot, and so you also have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the beautiful nature that surrounds it.

 

7. s’Espalmador Beach (Formentera)
It is known as the beach of s’Alga. The virginity of the area grants an added value to an enclave already in itself celestial. An area free from buildings, totally surrounded by a natural environment.

Are dogs our new children?

With 2018, Year of the Dog in China, humanity pays tribute to a thousand-year-old friendship, to unparalleled loyalty, to a maternal love …

With scenes of joy and wolves, we celebrate 2018, the year of the dog. For the Chinese zodiac will be months inspired by the empathy and honesty typical of this animal. And humanity is given the opportunity to pay tribute to a millenarian friendship, to an unparalleled loyalty, to an unconditional love that increasingly resembles that of the mother.

The new dog lovers are two, both unsettling. The first is that the canine population has just reached one billion in the world. The second is that the most common male dog name in Milan today is not Paco, but Mario. Yes, Mario. If the first news opens questions about the environmental sustainability of the pet food industry (see box on page 74), the second is the result of a survey of the site themillennial.it, which sent the interns around the city parks to discover the names that the thirty-year-olds give to their four-legged. In both cases, from science to pseudoscience, the signals of a phenomenon are multiplying, which for animal lovers was already a certainty. That is that dogs have now become “people”. Not human, of course, but people.

It does not exist in nature, Konrad Lorenz taught us. The dog was created by man. When, it is not known. Or rather, as in the case of humans, there is a missing link. First there were monkeys and wolves. Then evolution brought us men and dogs. First the wolves started to follow us to eat the leftovers, then we started to follow them because their portentous nose took us where there were tasty prey. Or maybe the opposite happened. The fact is that now their nose is portentous because it brings millions of followers to feed our Instagram profiles. But it is precisely the mystery of this mutual adaptation to cover this story with poetry. Because about 10 thousand years ago something very beautiful and magical happened. In some encampment, in some forest, next to a fire, some wolf cubs have been adopted by man. Perhaps from a woman: they were fragile, thin, rejected by the herd, begging for waste. But it was their big eyes that moved instincts of protection. Their gaze has continued to hypnotize us for centuries. Science explains it this way: dogs are “neotenic”, they maintain characteristics of newborns even as adults. For example, their eyes remain large. We selected our friends to stay with their sweet eyes. The “protocani” were primitive stuffed animals to protect and nourish. To be sure it went this way is like wondering if it really turns off when the fridge is closed. Nobody really knows but nobody closes in the fridge. We trust.

This fact of neoteny, however, is the only infallible tool to understand what the relationship between humans and dogs is today. Just look at them while they are looking at each other. Forget for a moment your dog, if you have one. For you it is unique, it is normal that you see it with eyes to heart. Look at the dogs of others. It will be disarming. We are in Madesimo, in Valchiavenna, the thermometer marks -7. Outside the bakery in Via Carducci there is Marco, 13, sitting next to his Whiskey, a labrador. While he waits for his mother, Marco talks to the dog. He stares straight into his eyes, tries to warm it up with his hands. Every so often Marco peeks around because he does not want his friends to see him, he fears that they will spoil him. At 13, if you talk to the dog instead of the big classmate, life can be complicated. But he has decided, Whiskey will not wait alone: ​​”I follow the Facebook page” Dogs sad out of the shops “, I do not leave it anymore,” he says. There are others dedicated to sad dogs inside the cars or at the window. Fortunately, there are others, cheerful, showing dogs sleeping in bed or getting out of the window.

And there is the work of the Scottish photographer Dougie Wallace, which we show you in these pages. He says so: “For me a dog has always been just a dog until I came across an army of” parents “». The result: looks from “clickbaits”, a social media manager would say: the irresistible impulse to put hearts and even hearts under those snouts.

In order not to be completely r

Tagomago island

Dream islands for rent. In Spain, Croatia, Sweden and Greece. But also in Venice
Santa Cristina, a private atoll 5 minutes by taxi boat from Burano. Tagomago, the most beloved by VIPs near Ibiza. Island Lodge in the Stockholm archipelago. Palagruža, a lighthouse in the sea of ​​Croatia. Silver Island, the dolphin-shaped island in Western Greece

It was the Maldives, until some time ago, the example of the formula “one island, one resort”, the experience of escape from the world in a handkerchief all by itself, which combines luxury, flashes of happiness part-time, privacy and nature. But barefoot now, in total intimacy, one walks not only at the water’s edge, in the Indian Ocean, but also in the woods or among the tamarisk lagoons. As happens on the private island of Santa Cristina, to the north-east of Venice. This eco-friendly hermitage (five minutes by taxi boat from Burano and Torcello), where the fishing valleys have just been reopened and the cabernet sauvignon and merlot vineyards revitalized, belongs to René Deutsch, of the Swarovski family.
Over the centuries a monastery, Santa Cristina, a mystery for the inhabitants of the Lagoon and for those who passed by, protected as it was in the eyes of others by the tamarisk “barrier”, welcomed guests from last September in the classic-modern spaces of Villa Ammiana, from 1870, Venetian style and recently restored. A hermitage to live in company, alternating relaxation and incursions at the Art Biennale and exhibitions in progress in Venice. The cost is € 2,200 per night, for a minimum of three nights. The nine rooms have 16 beds: three days with 16 friends in Santa Cristina cost 412.5 euros each.

SPAIN, TAGOMAGO – Excuse me, does Robinson live here?
The initiatory bath, in Ibiza, is traditionally made in Es Vedrà, the rooster-shaped faraglione that rises off Cap des Jueu, at the south-western end. For others, the ibicenco baptism corresponds to a sleepless night in one of the mega discotheques that make up the trends of summer, from one side of the Mediterranean to the other. Is there any other way to experience Ibiza? Yes, choosing the cans and the finca, among the olive trees, the farmhouses once inland, which offer an experience similar to those of Puglia. And there is a small exclusive island, Tagomago, where you can completely disconnect with fiesta, DJs and dancing parties, half a mile from the northeastern coast, after Santa Eulària des Riu, 15 minutes by boat, 30 from Formentera. An island that replicates the Maldivian island experience all for itself, but with the vivid colors and scents of the Mediterranean.

Green and rocky, sufficiently “Robinsonian” to the sight, Tagomago, a kilometer and a half long, has a width of 60 hectares. With its lighthouse built in 1909, it is a nature reserve area, birdwatching and walking paths. At the center of the island, only five suites, in a squared-looking, cycladic-looking mansion equipped with everything necessary. We must not bring anything but the desire for privacy. At the disposal of the lucky guests there are the swimming pool, a cook, a gardener, the captain of the tender, the staff for the kitchen and the rooms. Ask them to tell you about Cristiano Ronaldo, the Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood, the actor Justin Bieber and the Welsh football player Gareth Bale, the latter from here certainly not by chance to make his marriage proposal. Tagomago also offers a vast range of water sports. Compared to the Tropics, perhaps swimming with the sea turtle will be missed. However, you never know …Tagomago Island

Balearic: the sea of ​​Ibiza and Formentera

Moving around by boat is the best way to discover and admire the most evocative glimpses and corners of Ibiza and Formentera, which could not have been seen on land.

Ibiza appears immediately in its brightness, the Dalt Vila, or the medieval center of the city, seduces with its stone buildings of a dazzling white. The Renaissance walls are one of the best preserved military fortifications in Europe and allow access to the heart of the upper city through three gates: the Portal de Ses Taules, the Portal Nau and the Portal de Sant Joan. Archaeologists believe that the highest point, where the Cathedral is today, was originally a Phoenician temple. The heart of the ancient Ibiza is characterized by narrow cobblestone streets that offer visitors extraordinary views between one building and another. An incredible observation point on the surrounding landscape can be found along the massive bastions. Instead, to take a break, enjoying the pleasant Ibizan atmosphere, you can walk near Placa de Vila, a street lined with outdoor restaurants, boutiques and artisan shops.

Reaching the lower part of the city, at the foot of Dalt Vila, we find the district of Sa Marina, a quiet area during the day that comes alive in the early hours after sunset. A real landmark of the Ibiza nightlife is the obelisk at Los Corsarios, a monument dedicated to the pirates, local heroes who protected the island for hundreds of years against pirates. Leaving behind the bustling nightlife of the port, and walking through the streets you will find a restaurant behind the other, and dozens of shops, stalls displaying ceramics, carved wooden objects and of course the typical white cotton and linen garments.

Ibiza is not just beaches, food and nightlife, and indeed, offers many opportunities based on every need: the north of the island for example is one of the most beautiful and wild regions and offers unique landscapes with thick pine forests and characteristic villages in white stone. Here some of the most enchanting coves, such as Cala d’en Serra, ideal place for snorkeling, and Cala Sant Vincent with its soft and white sand. Country lovers will find themselves at ease in Santa Eulària, the third largest city in Ibiza, located on the east coast of the island. Among enchanting fincas (finely restored farmhouses), dirt paths, orange and lemon groves and olive fields, life here flows slowly, and makes this place ideal for families. Interesting, even if a little commercial, the hippy market that takes place every week in Punta Arabi, an entire village that transforms and re-proposes the atmosphere of the Sixties, including stalls of clothes and various objects.

In the south of the island it is necessary to make several stops to appreciate the small sheltered bays that wind along the coast: Cala d’Hort from which you can admire the rocky walls of the islet Es Vedrà, Cala Tarida a small beach from the crystalline backdrop and Las Salinas, a stretch of fine white sand located in the homonymous Natural Park that includes the strait that divides this beach from Formentera. Cala Comte, a golden sandy beach famous for its magical sunsets and Cala Benirras, is also a must-see sight. At sunset it comes alive with the music of the percussionists coming from all over the island.

Resuming navigation, we head towards the last paradise of the Mediterranean, as its inhabitants define it: the tiny island of Formentera, which stretches to the southeast of Ibiza and is only a few miles away. The island appears as a long strip that joins two rocky headlands, each of which is dominated by a lighthouse. The color of the water, approaching the coast, passes from intense turquoise to the most transparent one. At Espalmador, a rocky mass off the northern end of Formentera, there is an eighteenth-century defensive tower, Sa Guardola, in good condition. Espalmador is surrounded by enchanting beaches, in the days of low tide, you can even reach them by walking in the water on the sandbanks starting from Punta Trucadors. Illetes and Llevant occupy this peninsula; the first to the west and the other to the open sea. Illetes is undoubtedly the most famous beach of the island, offers white sand and crystal clear water, the other is more wild but retains the same charm.

Ha cambiato la sua melodia! Paris Hilton DENIES, appena fidanzata, appende le cuffie … dopo aver tenuto la residenza di Ibiza DJ per cinque anni

Paris Hilton non è ancora pronta per rinunciare al suo concerto da DJ al mega-club di Ibiza Amnesia.

La socialite di 36 anni ha detto che stava chiamando l’ora della sua residenza estiva di cinque anni, ma ha affermato che non ha ancora deciso di appendere le cuffie.

La speculazione ha seguito il fidanzamento di Parigi con l’attore Chris Zylka, che ha proposto in cima a una montagna all’inizio di gennaio.

Chiamata alla cortina: Paris Hilton ha annunciato di aver chiamato l’ora della sua residenza da DJ al mega-club di Ibiza Amnesia, poche settimane dopo essersi fidanzata con Chris Zylka
Una fonte ha dichiarato a MailOnline che una dichiarazione che avrebbe dichiarato di aver pubblicato venerdì, annunciando la sua partenza, è “falsa”.

Un rappresentante di Paris Hilton è stato contattato da MailOnline per un commento.

La dichiarazione aveva letto: “Voglio ringraziare i miei fan e il pubblico per la loro lealtà ed entusiasmo e Amnesia per la loro professionalità e fiducia.

‘Insieme abbiamo vissuto cinque meravigliosi anni a Ibiza, un posto molto speciale per me.’

C’erano reazioni contrastanti da parte dei fan di tutto il mondo alle notizie che il tempo di Parigi all’Amnesia stava per finire.

Uno ha twittato: “Le sue feste @FoamDiamonds sono state le migliori. Mi sono divertito così tanto con Paris Hilton a Ibiza nelle ultime tre estati. ”

Ma il DJ Sam Chorlton, con sede a Middlesborough, ha scritto su Facebook: “Immagina di vedere il giorno in cui Ibiza pagherebbe un simile assurdamento.

“La residenza di un club Paris Hilton riassume in qualche modo la scomparsa dell’isola in quanto diventa sempre più commercializzata entro l’anno dalla cultura pop pop senz’anima”.

Il critico Thomas Mezey ha aggiunto: “Averla in grado di gestire la musica è una vera scoreggia in faccia a chiunque abbia investito tempo e passione nella propria musica e diventando un vero artista”.

Nel frattempo, la bionda bellezza ha detto “sì” al suo fidanzato attore quando si è inginocchiato durante una recente vacanza sugli sci ad Aspen, in Colorado.

La coppia si frequentava da due anni, ma sono stati pubblicati solo a febbraio dell’anno scorso.

Prendendo su Instagram per annunciare la notizia, ha scritto: “Sono così entusiasta di essere fidanzato con l’amore della mia vita e il mio migliore amico.

‘Non mi sono mai sentito così felice, sicuro e amato. Lui è perfetto per me in ogni modo e mi ha dimostrato che le favole esistono davvero “.

Pare che Parigi stia pianificando di hyphening il suo famoso cognome e aggiungendo il suo compagno quando si sposano.

WE ARE QUALIFIED AT IBIZA 2018

Enthusiasm at the Fieg. Save tens of millions, including envoys, correspondents, collaborators. The publishers rub their hands, they are the only ones to enjoy the blue shame. Chissenefrega If Italy does not go to Russia, the retreat of San Siro enters the football literature, like Buffon’s tears and the face of the accountant Ugo Fantozzi Ventura.

Sooner or later it had to happen and, together, fall our backside. Between poles and penalties not whistled, against and in favor, the blue project sinks into an autumn color, like chestnut. It was not a tactical error, it has nothing to do with the kamasutra of wrong positions on penetrations and re-starts and density. Foreigners have nothing to do with it, many of which twenty years ago would have found it hard to present themselves in the B series.

The so-called Italian system is going to be blessed, if England came out of Europe by the will of the people, we have touched the most historic enterprise, in the world we just do not go because of the inability of the voters, sent back to the sender by a group of Swedish warehouse workers who have done the minimum union, an own goal to get into history and that’s it.

In the worst bars of Pinerolo, Codroipo and Altamura, we ask the head of Ventura, Tavecchio and others not better defined. Nothing would change, the guillotine does not help if then the executioner goes to other jobs and the country does not change, the country of football, obviously, because the other Italy this is and this remains, with all the annexes, the connected, the right , the left, the center, Ventura and Tavecchio. I am not a catastrophologist but simply register the state of the art. It would be nice if from tomorrow football, not the game, but the football system, was entrusted to people who frequent it, know it, love it, suffer it, then to experts on the field and not in the corridor, behind a desk, in tribune authority. We need men who put the face and do not exhibit the plume of the assignment.

It was clear from the South African world, reiterated by the Brazilian, masked by the European Conte, that our football drifted while the rafters continued to enjoy it, asking for the Olympics Games, the organization of continental finals, the ministry of sport , various and possible. It must start again not from zero but from below zero.

Two images of the night of San Siro pass directly into the TV showcases: Gigi Buffon who runs in the opposing area, in the last romantic, desperate quest to score a goal. And, at the same time, Giampiero Ventura sitting on the bench, like a exhausted retiree, at the bowls club, waiting for the cook to prepare risotto or busecca. Two frames that explain a lot, if not all: a soldier, a captain who still believes in it and a general, so to speak, who stays under the field tent, to avoid bullets and grenades. A few minutes later, Buffon, along with three others, De Rossi, Barzagli and Chiellini, announced his resignation from the national team. while Ventura postponed every decision to a further meeting with Tavecchio. A comparison like Putin-Trump, in short, a summit between brains not fleeing but settling.

This is the comedy, these interpreters. Anyway, do not worry: the Serie A starts again, there’s Er derby de Roma, there’s Napoli, there’s Juventus, there’s aaLazio and Inda, then Milan, who’s not sure where the others.

We start again, I’m sure, as if nothing has happened and nothing can happen. Ignorant until the end. These blues are qualified for Ibiza 2018. It will be a beautiful summer, with relatives, children, grandchildren, grilled, pizza and mixed fries. And without the hymn of Mameli. Thank you all for giving us a little freedom. We read again in Qatar.

Flashes and lasers, David Guetta dj superstar

Expected show at the Mediolanum Forum

Dancing in Assago with Monsieur Guetta. “I dream of getting bored but it never happens”, jokes David Guetta talking about the activity of globetrotter dj that today deposits it on the forum stage. The fact of waking up every day in a different city has become physiological for him as well as rotating between those three crossroads of his life that are the houses of Paris, London and Los Angeles to which, in summer, the “residency” of Ibiza is added where he owns a private recording studio. Still inside the top ten (seventh) of that dancefloor bible that is the magazine DJ Mag, the French electronic alchemist does not seem to know moments of tiredness. The stars of Calvin Harris or Skrillex flex, those of Avicii and Carl Nunes fall, but his no. He remains the one of “I gotta feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas (six million downloads only in the United States) or the album “One love” (three million copies sold at every latitude).

David Guetta, who on the stage of the Forum will have as special guest Hugel and Deepend, a couple of years ago had played the de profundis of dance music with the piece “The death of Edm” without repentance. “So I thought that the dance scene had reached embarrassing levels – he continues – Every dee jay sounded the same as the other contravening the thought of those who had given rise to phenomena such as dance and house (people like Frankie Knuckles, Lil Louie Vega, David Morales, Dj Pierre) who certainly would not have wanted to hear this music obey rigid formats and canons. Also I approached this music and I became a DJ with this conviction. Instead, slowly, the EDM has become standardized, with an urgent need to be reinvented. Artists like the Chainsmokers, DJ Snake and others have thought of it, giving a new sound to that community that previously preferred the Edm “.

The younger brother of Nathalie Guetta (Don Matteo’s Natalina in the homonymous fiction) and half-brother of the famous journalist Bernard Guetta, David has collaborated with crowned pop and hip-hop heads such as Kelly Rowland, Sia, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne , Ludacris, Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Ne-Yo, Christina Aguilera and one of the last hits was the single “2U” given to the press last June together with Justin Bieber and accompanied by two videos, one of which with the models of Victoria Secret lingerie brand. “At the beginning in America people did not understand what my role was in certain productions, since I do not sing. So I explained to him that I create music and write songs, so I’m titled at least as much as an interpreter who comes into the studio, registers his voice, and leaves. From that moment they stopped making distinctions “.

And on the explosion of dance in large spaces such as sports palaces and festivals, Guetta, fifty years old last November, explains that “there was a time when the locals could no longer give the boys or the artists nor the music they wanted to hear, so the great concentrations of one and the other took place in events by tens of thousands of people. But the return of purely club-like music like the underground seems destined to give clubs a new chance “.

The Silvia Rinaldi Foundation for the disabled and skiing

Completed the Course for accompanying disabled persons on skis. Donate six wheelchairs to the shelters of Corno alle Scale and Monte Cimone.

The “Course for people with disabilities on skis” was concluded, started in November and organized by the Silvia Rinaldi ONLUS Sports Foundation, with the participation of 18 new companions. The aim of the initiative is the technical-practical training of escorts who can make themselves available free of charge and voluntary for skiing on the slopes of people with motor, intellectual-relational and sensorial disabilities. In fact, skiing allows people with any disability to enjoy sport in a mountain environment thanks to special adaptations and to the support of adequately trained and prepared companions.

“This course is the concrete expression of the Paralympic message, that is the integration and sharing of sports moments; doing sports, in this case skiing, for a disabled person also means less presence in health facilities and consequently less costs for the National Health Service, “said Cav. Antonio Fenu, regional delegate from Emilia-Romagna FISIP.

The participants of the course, coming from Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy, Tuscany and Lazio, had access to a training course that was divided into practical and theoretical lessons on legal, medical and psychological topics, aimed at understanding the problems that emerge in the relationship with people with different types of disability. The practical phase took place on the ski slopes of Monte Cimone, where the participants were followed by FISIP trainers (Italian Paralympic Winter Sports Federation), ski instructors specialized in teaching skiing technique to disabled people, demonstrators and Paralympic athletes. The accompanying course is part of the “Outdoor Region 365” project, funded by the Emilia-Romagna Region and the Vodafone Italia Foundation.

Visually impaired – Even those who are visually impaired or blind can ski: to do so, a guide is required which gives the disabled skier the commands to face the curves on the track. The coordination and sharing of the sporting moment establish a relationship of trust capable of creating a strong link between the chaperone and the accompanying person.
Wheelchair skis – Those affected by severe motor or cognitive disability, such as to make it impossible to practice skiing on their own legs or independently, can be carried out on the track on a special wheelchair adapted with one or two skis. The need for excellent skiing skills and the difficult technique of driving the tool make it essential to train a practical technical training so that the activities on the track can be carried out while having fun in safety.

Ibiza consolidates as a destination for sports tourism

The island of Ibiza takes strength as a destination for thousands of people who come to do sports tourism. As indicated by Fitur organizers of the main events planned for this year, athletes are beginning to appreciate the island not only for its landscape but also for the complementary offer of gastronomy and night and day entertainment that exists.

Francisco Larrey, head of the Ibiza Marathon and the 12K to be held on April 7, noted that registrations for the test this year have already increased by 30 percent. In the second edition of this event, its organizers hope to reach 3,000 runners, a thousand more than last year.

As he pointed out, this test is attracting both the national and international markets. In fact, 60 percent of the people registered in the marathon are from countries like Italy, Holland or England. Regarding the national market, athletes from Madrid, Comunidad Valenciana, Catalunya or Andalucía are the most abundant.

“Since last year there has been a noticeable change. There was a lack of revulsion, there were competitions but it was not necessary for people to think that Ibiza is also a sport, “he said.

For his part, José Hidalgo, president of the Spanish Triathlon Federation, explained that the first European Multisport Championship to be held in Ibiza in October will attract between 4,000 and 5,000 people to the island who will make an average of between 8 and 10 days of overnight stays.

Ibiza says goodbye to throw-away: just lighters, coffee capsules, wet wipes coffee capsules

 

Since 2020 the sale of cotton swabs, drinking straws, toner for printers and shopping bags has also been banned

Brussels – Hard times for plastic. After France has imposed that since 2020, plates, glasses and picnic utensils will be sold only if made exclusively with natural and recyclable materials, the battle against waste extends into the Balearic Islands, in Spain. From 2020 no non-recyclable coffee capsules, drinking straws, plastic crockery, scented towels, cotton swabs, shopping bags, razors and lighters will be accepted.

The law – which is being approved by the autonomous parliament of the archipelago – will only allow coffee capsules marketed by companies that respect the protocol for ecology. Only some companies offer a system to collect used capsules, but the vast majority of products once used, can not be recycled, producing a huge amount of waste in a territory with such a high percentage of tourists as the Balearic archipelago.

Picnic glasses, plastic crockery and drinking straws, abandoned on the sidewalks and on the streets of the tourist centers, dragged by the rain and the wind, reach the sea. Wet wipes have already caused severe saturation problems in the public sewage system. Last November, the huge amount of tissues thrown into the baths of the Ibiza area of ​​Cala de Bou created a sewer burst and poured sewage and wipes on the rocks of the beaches of Ibiza.

The ban on sales is extended to non-refillable lighters, disposable razors, cotton swabs and toner for non-reusable printers. The law also provides that within two years, bags to buy fruit and vegetables in supermarkets can be marketed only if made of cellulose.

To ensure compliance with all these precepts, the text includes a series of sanctions ranging from € 300 for a very slight infringement to € 1.7 million in the case of very serious ones.

Ibiza is one of the most enticing destinations on earth, and Villa Es Cubells does it justice.

Situated in Vista Alegre, a private and secure urbanization, it faces Porroig beach and the island of Formentera. Everything about this property breathes cool and calm, from its sleek air-conditioned interior to its beautiful panoramic view of the hills and beaches below.

This property has a unique spa-like feel, and includes the services of a chef and waiting staff as well as daily cleaning and security, so you and your fellow travelers can indulge in ultimate relaxation. Sit back on one of the lounge chairs and enjoy a break from reality by getting lost in the view of your private infinity pool’s edges blending in perfectly with the Mediterranean Sea below. For a change of scenery, just take a stroll around your villa and you’ll discover a beautiful green garden and a hot-tub designed to blend in with its natural surroundings.

When you’re not savoring a Spanish barbecue alfresco in your outdoor dinning area, you’ll be able to gather around a gorgeous contemporary tree-trunk design dining table with your friends and family. Alternatively, you’ll be able to have a quick drink or snack at the breakfast bar of your fully equipped kitchen. Villa Es Cubells décor is as modern as it is soothing, with a Mediterranean palette of white, beige and ochre, accented with natural wooden details. For vacationers wanting to stay active, a ping-pong table and a Gym overlooking a cliff-side view will help them keep up their routine. Several lounge areas, a media room and a home office guarantee the comforts of home.

Villa Es Cubells was designed so that every bedroom has its own unique view of the Ibiza landscape. Wide sliding glass doors blur the lines between the indoors and the outdoors, and heavy white or beige curtains give the option of privacy without breaking the relaxing atmosphere. The master bedroom is furnished with a king sized bed, a dual vanity, a walk-in closet, a television and a safe box, and features an en-suite bathroom with a stand-alone shower and bathtub. Each of the other six bedrooms are furnished with king sized beds, televisions and have access to their own en-suite bathrooms with stand-atone showers. The villa sleeps a total of 14 guests, which makes it perfect for a family or group vacation.

Villa Es Cubells has its own parking space and is situated 100 meters away from a yacht dock, which makes it an ideal base for exploring the island, by land or sea. A mere 5 minute drive to Es Torrent beach and a 30.7 km drive to restaurants and nightlife spots will allow you to diversify your activities, while the 12.5 km drive to Ibiza international airport makes arriving to Villa Es Cubells a breeze.

What to do in Formentera, where the Balearic paradise is located

Holiday in Formentera, Balearic island where there is a dream sea and, at the same time, you can enjoy a pristine natural environment.

The island of dreams and of summer, sun and relaxation: it is Formentera, in the Balearic archipelago, off the Spanish coast of the Mediterranean Sea. An island of 83 square kilometers and 12 thousand inhabitants, almost completely flat, with only one plateau that reaches 200 meters above sea level.

An ideal island to recover from the nocturnal follies of the most cheerful and festive Ibiza. Formentera, with its long golden beaches, quiet, lonely in some cases, where you can admire crystal clear waves and delight in the sight of the green hills moved by the light breeze that rises from the sea.

Playa de Illetas and Playa Levante are the two beaches on the northern tip of the island, a stretch of the most popular coast of Formentera, where services for tourists are more numerous and efficient. For those who want a more complete tranquility and are looking for some space, some free beach to practice nudism without difficulty (which is in fact a legal practice throughout Spain), there is Espalmador.

It is therefore enough to reach the very close islet of Espalmador, a natural uninhabited paradise where the only construction is the old Saracen watchtower to find more tranquility. Here the quiet is total and practically all the beaches are frequented by nudists: S’Alga, Sa Torreta, Sa Senyora, En Pou. To reach the island you need to rent a private boat: it is only 2 kilometers from Playa de Illetas.

In contrast, Cala Saona and Migjorn beach are characterized by the privacy and tranquility that you can breathe here. The first, with the blue of the sea that stands out against the red of the rocks, gives a truly rare natural panorama; the second one is among the largest on the island but, since it is located in the extreme south of the island, it is also the least frequented.

The main urban nucleus is Sant Francesc Xavier de Formentera. On the square, the center of social life in the country, overlooks the characteristic parish church, dating back to the eighteenth century, which has no windows because initially it was also used as a fortress and place of protection for civilians from attacks by pirates, which often plundered the island of Formentera and that were the cause of its depopulation.

Sant Ferran de ses Roques, El Pilar de la Mola, Es Pujols and La Savina are the other centers of Formentera. In Sant Ferran, full of bars and restaurants, there is one of the island’s historic sites, the Fonda Pepe, a celebrated meeting place for the children of flowers in the seventies. From Sant Ferran, head towards El Pilar de la Mola, where Wednesday and Sunday are the days of the hippie market; and Es Pujols, which was built close to a natural cove enclosed between two islets. La Savina, in the northern part, houses the small port of Formentera and has all the services and conveniences useful for mooring boats.

 

The municipality of Formentera has prepared twenty itineraries immersed in nature, routes specially designed for tourists and for all those who admire the beautiful landscape and the beauties of the place, walking on it or cycling to reach the most evocative points of the island.

The longest route is the Camì Vell de la Mola (3,000 meters), followed by the Camì de s’Estany (2,700 meters) and the de Dalt de Porto Salè (2,500 meters). Some of these paths can be traveled on foot or by bike, others on foot, such as the Camì de Sa Pedrera or the Camì d’Es Cap.

In the past, Formentera’s economy was based on the extraction and conservation of sea salt. Today, the Riserva delle Saline is a suggestive destination to be recommended to tourists, to be fascinated by the processes of crystallization of salt. At this stage, the salt pans become rosy, the same color as the feathers of the flamingos that arrive there to feed on the micro-organisms present in these large pools.

Some of the most beautiful views of Formentera belong to the Riserva delle Saline and the surrounding sea beds are spectacular and fragile. Precisely for this reason, diving here is allowed only with permission from the Island Council. The spectacular color games that the Saline offer, especially in the morning and at sunset, the opportunity to take memorable photographs.

In Formentera there are three lighthouses: those of Es Cap de La Mola and Es Cap de Barbaria and, in the port, La Savina. The first is the oldest and highest of the island because it stands on a cliff 120 meters further: from here contemplate the sun rising and setting is an unforgettable experience.

Eleonora Pedron left Tommy Vee: the former Miss Italy is single again

The love story between Eleonora Pedron and Tommaso Vianello is over. Six months after the birth of the report under the sun of Ibiza, the former Miss Italy decided to leave the deejay for personal reasons and spent the Christmas holidays in the company of a well-known friend in New York. No new flirtation, however, for the former partner of Max Biaggi who defined Riccardo Grande Stevens only a dear person.

Instagram – Eleonora Pedron’s selfie on the plane
E ‘ended between Eleonora Pedron and Tommy Vee: the former Miss Italy has left the deejay became known thanks to participation in Big Brother 4 and flew to America where he spent the Christmas holidays. The gossip of the last hours, therefore, announces that the former partner of Max Biaggi is once again free from the sentimental point of view and the sighting with Riccardo Grande Stevens does not have to worry the suitor: the two are just friends.

To reveal that Eleonora Pedron has left Tommy Vee was the weekly Chi who told the Christmas holidays in New York of the former Miss Italy along with a ‘quasi-member of the Agnelli family’. Riccardo Grande Stevens, son of the lawyer Franzo, in fact, is the historic lawyer of the Agnelli family and, apparently, also a great friend of Pedron who found in him a good companion with whom to spend the Christmas holidays. For some time, however, it was rumored that the relationship between Eleonora and Tommaso Vianello was going through a difficult time so much that he had defined their relationship a bit ‘precarious’.

Holidays in Menorca: what to see, what to do and when to go

The Balearic archipelago is a fantastic opportunity to be able to devote yourself to the wildest entertainment in the world: if you are going to give you crazy joy, islands like Mallorca and Ibiza represent the top! And yet, the Balearic Islands are not just these two: there are alternatives like Menorca that, often, are not considered as they deserve.

For a holiday that knows how to draw heavily from all the advantages of other islands, adding others, the answer to the question is only one: Menorca! For what reason? Because we are simply talking about a place left in peace by mass tourism, but embellished with incredible beaches (the most beautiful in the Balearics). What to see, what to do and when to go to Menorca, then?

Menorca has been renamed “L’isola della calma”, and this label is certainly not the result of chance! In this place, in fact, the silence and the quiet are the masters: it is impossible to remain “bottled” in the tourist crowd typical of Ibiza and, despite its small size, however, there are opportunities for fun. What are its main features?

Meanwhile, the calm that reigns absolute on its magnificent coasts, but also the beauty of its landscapes, distinguished by a purely lagoon aspect. Then, being very small, just a single trip to discover every hidden corner: especially because of the proximity of the various coves, ideal for trekking enthusiasts. Finally, in Menorca there are not even pubs, clubs, parties and clearly discos: some even dug into the rock!

The climate of Menorca, just like the Canaries, is typically Mediterranean in nature: this means that the summer is particularly hot and sultry, as well as enormously crowded by tourists. That’s why the advice is to organize a holiday at this Balearic island in spring: the best time to enjoy its beauties without stress!

Moreover, it is in this season that there are many offers for accommodation, as opposed to months like July and August: for example, the Barcelò chain offers several opportunities to stay at its hotels in Menorca in the spring. So you can enjoy its sun, its sea and its pristine nature spending less!

What to see and do in Menorca?

First of all the beaches, certainly at the center of your sights: here you will have the opportunity to attend unmissable coastlines like San Bou and Cala Mesquida, together with the famous Cala Blanca! Going beyond the beaches, however, you could visit the Albufera des Grau nature park, made fascinating by its small islands that animate this wonderful lagoon.

Then, you should not for anything in the world give up a visit to Monte Toro: a sanctuary that will capture you even if you are not religious, given the incredible panorama of the whole of Menorca! If you want to get into the heart of the Minorcan traditions, here is the Plaza Explanada handicraft market, along with the mystical archaeological site of Naveta des Tudons. Do not miss the Park Aquarok and the Cammini dei Cavalli, to ride on a quadruped, on foot or by bike!

Holiday “stars & stripes” for the Asia Valente bell waiting for the Island

Look, you will not believe it, but I fell from a yacht while I was twerking … an involuntary dive into the sea of ​​almost two and a half meters!

A “location” favored by Asia, as we had said in the previous interview, for her that embodies the spirit of this city, with its colors and scents, peculiar to this part of the States.

Asia, how did you spend the last year?

Great entertainment, between Miami’s mega villas and private parties, dressed only with a thousand glitters on them and a shining coronet. Florida and in particular Miami are magical places where everyone can feel “wild and free”, that is to say “wild and free”!

How will you spend the other days waiting for the challenge to become “Isolana”?

Now I’m heading to Mexico, Tulum, for the sound festival where there will be thousands of people listening to the best DJs of Ibiza and the world with their new music and “discoteque” rhythms. Then I will end my vacation with a trip to Havana, Cuba, where I will finally feel at home with the South American “B side” that I find myself!

Ride of taste here the charming Asia, engaged in this “on the road” vacation in the American continent on the style of Jack Kerouac, to relax and recharge the batteries in view of his projects targati 2018.

Obviously, the year ended up at the top and was resumed in the same way. In Miami I love the “bikini life” and the fantastic parties.

You will have been courted then?

Courtship is nothing short. I could not walk down the street without being approached by gentlemen who proposed dinners, trips and shopping. Currently, however, I remain 100% single!

In Miami you will have glimpsed or crossed many famous people, maybe on Ocean Drive.

Yes, for example the American rapper Travis Scott. Among the Italian Gianluca Vecchi.

Tell us a funny anecdote that happened to you in Miami.

Look, you will not believe it, but I fell from a yacht while I was twerking … an involuntary dive into the sea of ​​almost two and a half meters!

Always at the top our Asia Valente who can show off a golden tan in the program next Monday, looking for many votes to launch it in the empyrean of the Island of the Famous. Ad maiora!

Guide to Ibiza: where to sleep on the island

In our review on Ibiza, we gave you all the information you need for a visit to the Spanish island of the Balearics. We have reported the places of interest, we have given you directions to the capital city, we have proposed the most beautiful beaches and a guide to romantic Ibiza. Now it’s time to give you some suggestions on the best places to sleep on the island. Depending on the type of holiday and needs, in fact, the structures and especially the places where it is advisable to stay will change. Here is the guide of Ibiza to the best places to sleep.

Hotel, residence, house for rent, b & b. There are several facilities to stay in Ibiza, distributed fairly well throughout the island. The best places to sleep depend on the type of holiday you want to do. In fact, they change according to specific needs. Ibiza is good for both groups of friends and couples and families. The island has so much to offer: from the beaches, to the typical restaurants to the nightclubs to the monuments. The choice of the structure and the place to sleep depends on the holiday you want to do. Here’s where to find the best places to sleep on the island.

Ibiza Town. The city of Ibiza is the place where the greatest number of tourists and also the one with the most receptive structures. The island’s main port is located here and the airport is just a few kilometers away. Choose to stay in the city or the surrounding area is convenient for transport and attractions available. Here, in fact, are the main monuments: the Old Town of Dalt Vila with its fortified walls, the archaeological museum and the Punic necropolis. In the immediate vicinity are some of the most beautiful beaches of the island: Talamanca, Ses Figueretes, Ses Salines. Buses to the towns and beaches of the south-western area leave from Ibiza town to Sant Antoni de Portmany, on the opposite side of the island. In the city there are many trendy clubs, from typical restaurants to trendy bars, and shops for shopping. The main nightclubs are nearby or just a few kilometers away. You move easily by scooter. That’s why staying in the city of Ibiza or in the immediate surroundings is good for everyone: for those looking for fun, for those seeking culture, for young people, adults and families. For those who want to have a quiet holiday, on all couples and families, it is better to avoid the nightlife areas, such as Playa d’en Bossa, just outside the city, and the area of ​​the old port where the locals are concentrated. Even the historic center at night is quite noisy. In this case it is preferable to choose the structures in the area of ​​the marina and Talamanca, quieter, those just outside the historic center to the north, where there are many residences, or near the beach of Ses Figueretes. Young people looking for fun, however, will choose hotels or residences with apartments for rent in Playa d’en Bossa, a few kilometers south of Ibiza, the place of nightlife, with night clubs, discos and beach bars with parties not stop.

Sant Antony de Portmany. On the coast of the island opposite the city of Ibiza is Sant Antoni de Portmany, another worldly resort and very popular with young people, especially for the sunset from the Cafe del Mar. Even here, it is better that families and couples avoid the city ​​center to move to hotels and residences near the coves of the west coast. Young groups, on the other hand, have a wide choice of facilities in the city or in the immediate vicinity if they want to save money.

Sant Josep de sa Talaia. If you are looking for absolute tranquility for your night’s sleep, we recommend the residences of Sant Josep de sa Talaia, in the south-western hinterland. Here you will stay in residences of white houses surrounded by nature and overlooking the hills and the sea in the distance. The beaches are just a few kilometers away, the beautiful Cala d’Hort is a quarter of an hour away by car. Obviously this solution is preferable for those who have a car,

Santa Eularia des Riu. The seaside resort of Santa Eularia des Riu is located on the east coast about 15 km north of the city of Ibiza. It is a very beautiful and elegant resort, perfect for couples looking for a romantic and family holiday. It is not a nightlife area for young people. In addition to the city beach, on the Santa Eularia coast, there are many beautiful coves: Cala Longa in the south and Cala LLenya in the north. The whole coast is very beautiful and well served, with numerous residences and even luxury hotels. Santa Eularia is perfect for families, for the tranquility and especially the wide, sandy beaches, with a shallow sea bottom and shaded by pine woods.

Slow spring in Formentera

It is one of the most popular islands in the Balearics, especially in summer, thanks to a clear sea and its enchanting beaches. But in Formentera also beats a green heart that makes it a true paradise for a holiday in the midst of nature out of season. When the mild temperatures, the colors and the scents of the flowers and the absence of crowds allow you to enjoy all its beauty, including the small villages of the interior and the white beaches along the coast.
Formentera is an island that invites calm. For this reason it is also the ideal place to visit on foot or by bike, thanks to its small size and not very demanding slopes.

Just last year, 32 green routes were inaugurated, creating a circuit of over 100 kilometers.
The access point to the island is the port of La Savina, located 3 kilometers from the capital Sant Francesc, a cozy and quiet place, where in addition to the ancient fortress built in the early eighteenth century, is characterized by many local specialties food, craft markets and hippy stalls. From here you can start to discover the island.

 

To the north you reach the peninsula of Es Trucadors, a long tongue of sand that stretches into the sea where there are some of the most beautiful beaches. Like Llevant, Es Cavall d’en Borràs and Ses Illetes, the most famous of the island also to watch the sunset, which offers a unique show at the end of the day. All this territory is located within the Natural Park of Saline d’Eivissa and Formentera, a large protected area for biodiversity. Admission is free for those who access on foot or by bike while paying for those arriving by car or motorbike. The landscape is characterized by white sand dunes alternating with cliffs surrounded by pine woods and juniper sabina di costa. Inside, instead, there are a series of evaporation basins fed by the sea that cover the ground with salt crystals. Next to it, two large pools of water, the ponds of Estany des Peix and Estany Pudent, are the perfect habitat for terns, flamingos and seagulls.
Opposite the peninsula is, as a natural continuation of Es Trucadors, the private island of S’Espalmador accessible to all with local boats. Even here you can take beautiful walks along the coast where, among others, there is the beach of S’Alga, on the west coast.

Returning south, following a flat path of about 30 kilometers, we reach Cap de Barbaria, where the lighthouse of the same name dominates a rocky and deserted landscape. Along the way, it is worth stopping off at Cala Saona, the only real beach on the west coast, with shallow waters and protected from the wind by high cliffs.
To the east, instead, extends the Costa de Tramuntana with low rocks and crystal clear water. It is one of the most peaceful places on the island, where you can walk starting from Racó de sa Pujada along the coast and reach Caló de Sant Agustí, the only town in this area that is highly appreciated for its picturesque fishing port and its many small restaurants. where to taste the gastronomic specialties. Just a 2 minute walk away is Ses Platgetes, two small sandy and rocky bays.

Continuing we arrive near the promontory of La Mola, at the foot of which is the most chic area of ​​Formentera, with elegant hotels and restaurants on the beach that offer traditional local dishes. Going up, however, you reach the Faro de la Mola from where you can enjoy a spectacular view. For a little ‘relaxation on the beach there is Migjorn, 5 kilometers of fine sand in the shape of a crescent that frames the whole south of the island between Es Mal Pas and Es Copinar. It is one of the most magical places on the island where, it seems, that Pink Floyd composed The Dark Side of the Moon. It was a place much loved by hippies in the 60s, and today you can choose the vivacity around the chiringuitos or the calm in the middle of nature.

Ibiza, the island of emotions

A trip (but it’s also a weekend) to discover the essence of the island where everything can happen

Ibiza – the second largest island in the Balearic Islands, after Majorca – has now established itself as the most popular tourist destination during the summer months. Stoves of tourists from all over the world crowd the island in search not only for fun, but also for relaxation and psychophysical wellbeing.

Precisely for this reason, Ibiza (perhaps) has no secrets. We already know it for its trendy clubs and clubs, for its wild coves and its sea that ranges from turquoise to iridescent green (thanks to Posidonia Oceanica, an endemic plant of the Mediterranean Sea that makes the waters transparent and crystalline).

But not everyone knows that in Ibiza the five-star luxury gets married (happily) with the hippy spirit that sets it apart. When you set foot in Ibiza you fall into a sort of ancestral and magical atmosphere. A rare and impalpable alchemy.

Ibiza offers (yet) unexpected sunsets, pure energy, hidden places such as the Casita Verde, in the heart of Sant Josep, the flagship project of an association that acts as a center of environmental education and is aimed at proposing a model of eco-sustainable life through alternative energies. It is the island where everything can happen. Where joy alternates with fear, where one gets lost in the alleys of the old town of Dalt Vila and admires the puesta del sol in Benirrás.

You can wake up in the morning in a five-star villa with the scent of lavender (look at the photos in the gallery and all addresses), take a bath in a magazine pool and then find yourself barefoot at the Hippy Market in Es Canar – it takes place every Wednesday – to look for some trinkets to take home as a souvenir. (In the gallery above all our advice).

The village of Dalt Vila (the old city) and the Cathedral – Photo: adobe.stock
Ibiza really makes everyone agree. Families with children who want to relax and enjoy nature, perhaps through an excursion on horseback to the north of the island, or for the adventurers a fun and exciting ride in a hot-air balloon (and the pleasant sensation of floating in the sky), to admire the island from another point of view.

Not to be missed (restaurants and clubs)
The Thursday evening aperitif of the IT Restaurant in the heart of Marina Botafoch, where fashion, style and beauty are mixed. From 19.00 aperitif to the bar with raw and lounge music. Every Monday, do not miss the usual appointment at Flower Power (from May 29th to October 2nd) at the Pacha disco in Ibiza and for the fans of electronic music the Circoloque at DC10. If instead you are more underground try to jump to the Zooproject (the location is a scream) where every Tuesday plays a DJ of our house, the Florentine Federico Grazzini. Do not miss the evening Ants (every Saturday from 4 pm to midnight) at the Ushuaïa.

The beautiful spring of the Balearic islands

The evocative Easter celebrations are an opportunity to discover the archipelago in the best season

Easter is one of the best moments to experience the most authentic soul of the Balearic Islands: the ancient rites, religious traditions and the excellent gastronomic proposal become protagonists in Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. Not only ancient rites and excellent gastronomy but also the opportunity to go to the discovery of the territory, enjoy the mild climate, the green landscapes in bloom and the scents of spring.

The panades are based on salty pasta and contain lamb, pork and chicken, peas and cured meats; perfect for vegetarians instead cocarrois made of the same paste of the panades but stuffed with chard and raisins; instead robiols are filled cakes in the shape of half moon and crespells in the shape of stars and hearts are filled with apricot and ricotta jam.

Four islands, four worlds – For those staying in Majorca, you can book tours of historic palaces and fincas, finely furnished manor houses rich in history dating back to the thirteenth / fifteenth century. Among the most famous and representative La Granja and Els Calderers. In Menorca do not miss the tour of prehistoric megalithic monuments, well-preserved stone structures dating back to the period between 2000 and 1000 BC. which at the time served as burial places or defensive towers. Those who choose Ibiza can experience the island from a naturalistic point of view, visiting two national parks of particular interest for their ecological value: the Park of Ses Salines, the Es Vedrà reserve, Es Vedranell and the islets of the west. In Formentera, a complete tour of the island is possible with a 15 km journey along the north coast from Es Caló de Sant Agustí and ending with el Faro. Walking we discover the camí de Sa Pujada, with numerous caves of the megalithic period, descending towards the pier of Sa Cala and passing through some streams with incredible views.

The Crist de la sang in Palma de Mallorca – Returning to Easter, the Holy Week celebrations take place in the various localities of the islands and are all characterized by the great devotion and the heartfelt participation of the faithful. Among the most important celebrations, the first of great impact is that of Holy Thursday in the city of Palma de Mallorca with the “Sant Crist de la sang”: a spectacular procession with more than twenty thousand hooded confreres, belonging to the thirty official confraternities, carrying the Christ through the streets of the historic center to the rhythm of the drums.

The Via Crucis of Pollenca – Good Friday is very popular in the town of Pollenca, (Majorca) where the “Davallament” takes place one of the most intense celebrations of the archipelago for the intense and realistic representation of the last moments of Christ. A long procession ascends to the church at the top of the hill, known as Calvary, staging an intense and painful Way of the Cross; at the top of the hill there is the crucifixion and then the deposition of Christ. At this point begins the ‘Davallament’: a procession on the 365 steps lit by torches, to the pressing sound of the drums, in a solemn atmosphere and underlined by the glorious song of a “Miserere”, where the Christ is carried in procession by some representatives of the confraternities through the city.

Christmas on the Balearic Islands

Christmas on the Balearic Islands

Spending the holidays in the archipelago of the Balearic Islands means experiencing a unique experience where traditions give new sensations: amazed by taking part in celebratory events in Menorca and Mallorca, letting yourself be enchanted by the popular Pitiuse songs and closing your eyes tasting the flavors of the rich gastronomic offer of the islands, is all you need to experience the best of Christmas in these four pearls of the Mediterranean.
On each of the islands the holiday season is open in a different way. In Menorca, Christmas is anticipated by the arrival of four characters: the llumets, cute elves who according to legend live in Colom – a small island east of Minorca – and are commissioned to turn on the lights in the streets and squares on the first Sunday of December , thus officially giving way to the most magical period of the year.

To see them you need to stand in the Plaza de la Constitución de Mahón and look to the facade of the church of Santa Maria: the llumets climb furtive on the tower of the bell tower and from there greet the spectators and distribute sweets and candy to the present. The four goblins also have the task of ending the festivities by turning off the lights right after the Día de Reyes on January 5th. As soon as the little ones fall asleep, the llumets return to Colom Island to stay until the next Christmas holidays.

In Formentera, the Christmas period begins with the opening of the Mercado de Navidad, which is held in the pedestrian area of ​​Plaza de la Constitución, in the small town of Sant Francesc. Made with the patronage of the Consejería de Comercio, this traditional market sees the protagonists of the local dealers and locals who exhibit on a stall a multitude of items. The Mercado de Navidad is open every day between 1 December and 6 January and during these days there are a number of interesting events for the public, including music shows, games and workshops dedicated to all ages. In addition, the Consejería de Cultura organizes, in coincidence with the opening of the event, a concert of popular songs devoted to the Nativity.

History and tradition blend in gastronomy and every island’s place gives the opportunity to taste the characteristic products of this period of the year: many varieties of nougat craft; ensaïmada stuffed with marzipan and Ángel cabel (a special pumpkin jam); Peix in real pasta (almond paste); sweet coconut or cinnamon biscuits, are just some of the typical delights that you encounter on the boards and in the streets of Majorca.

It’s not just the sweetness to bargain on the party menu at Christmas and at Santo Stefano – known as the Segunda Fiesta de Navidad – when the main meals are family gatherings important to be honored with banquets filled with every leccornia. The sophomore soup (stuffed soup) is an elaborate dish made from bread, meat and vegetables, which is open to Christmas banquets on the largest of the Balearic Islands, followed by dishes such as carn freda de Nadal or the labourious pastry, stuffed pasta conchiglioni of meat and served in broth. The meat is the protagonist of the mallards of the inland: poultry and piglet from roasted or in wet milk; turkey recipes such as stuffed turkey or scampi – a meat stew, potatoes and slightly fried onion, tomatoes, garlic and white wine with hazelnut and pine nuts, are not lacking, while in coastal villages it is customary to serve fish stewed to maiorchina, cooked with potatoes, onions, beets, parsley, garlic and tomatoes, flavored with salt, pepper, sweet paprika and olive oil.

In terms of Christmas gastronomy, Ibiza is a tradition – consuming accompanied by desserts and sometimes breakfasts – the Salsa de Nadal, a kind of liquid nougat prepared with a mix of very particular ingredients: almond paste, sugar, honey, spices and broth of meat, which give this seasoning a very intense, but at the same time delicious flavor. The Salsa de Nadal is very similar to the Mossona sauce that lacks the honey and is the protagonist of the starters and desserts of parties at Formentera.

In all the Balearic Islands, Christmas is celebrated solemnly for the Matines, midnight massages; those of Mallorca are internationally renowned thanks to the Cant de la Sibil-la. Declared UNESCO’s Immaterial Cultural Heritage in 2010, this exciting religious song of medieval origin, was introduced on the island after its conquest by James I of Aragon. The Latin text – adapted in Catalan from the 13th century – prophesies the arrival of the Redeemer and the final judgment, and is sung by a single angelic voice – usually a child or a little girl – wearing a white dress and an embroidered coat in classic

or medieval style. The singer takes a sword suspended in the air in front of the face for the duration of the song and performs without musical accompaniment. To make notes at international level the Matines of Ibiza and Formentera, there are instead the Caramelles de Navidad, songs of very ancient origins announcing the birth of Jesus. They are sung before the Christmas Mass by two people accompanied by the music of various instruments including the flute, the espasí and the castles. It is a cultural tradition that has been orally referred to as a father in son on the Pitiuse Islands for more than five centuries and for this reason the Caramelles were declared a Cultural Heritage in 2005. Music characterizes the days ahead of Christmas in Ibiza: the Audición de Navidad, a real concert by Escuela de Música de Ibiza, is celebrated on 15 and 16 December. The Coro de la Ciudad de Ibiza also organizes a Christmas musical event on Saturday, while the Banda Sinfónica de la Ciudad de Ibiza on Sunday 17 will perform at Espacio Cultural Can Ventosa.

Ibiza, an infinite season

From mid-May to mid-October.

Summer 2017 in Ibiza is the longest ever. Hotels, resorts, beaches and clubs have been arranged to provide customers with maximum comfort even off season. And that 2018 could start already on Easter weekend.

Ibiza in winter is a concept that thought does not consider, I told you last January. Soon we will have to re-evaluate the idea. For years, the island of Balearic is not content with just a beautiful season. In August 2014, Ibiza, along with Formentera, had recorded the historic record of attendance: 375,140. The data had led institutions and traders to reflect on the possibility that it would have been a good and just good thing to spread the season over four months. We’re five now.

In the last three years Ibiza has changed profoundly. Fun has become aware, spouses afternoon parties (those ending at midnight) and attention to quality of life is not only about the young European sculptors but also the family dimension, which can find in Ibiza every comfort possible, even for the their creatures, even out of season.

Socio-demographic-economic impact on the tourism of the Usaua Beach Hotel on the island I have talked to you for a long time and its shock has not stopped to be felt.

Right in front of the giant of Playa D’En Bossa a few weeks ago its spin-off night, HI Ibiza, over what once was the legendary Space. From the first impressions it seems we will forget it before the expected but it is too early to spit judgments. Ibiza was given to death. Many observers have underestimated their power to regenerate, to shape their body to make the signs of time disappear.

Comfortable a slow but significant exodus, even occasional, Ibiza lives discreetly even before and after the two solstices. Artists, entrepreneurs, writers, designers. They are more and more the ones who have chosen the island, if not as headquarters, as a supportive study. How to give it wrong. A favorable climate, a particular air, which knows magic, makes it all easier. Who can afford to work remotely, even for short periods, should not think about it for a moment. Goddess, the New Year’s experience was very special but just have patience a few weeks to see the island blossom.

The Pacha is open all year round. And this is already comforting. This year, in the week of May 15, it was already very hot. The 19 Marco Carola at the Magnesia, the 20th anniversary of Pacha, celebrating the fifty seasons on the island, the 21 Guy Gerber at Destiny. I’m not talking about July or August. I’m talking about May, with the 2017 season officially kicked off in her last weekend, where the maestranze find themselves at the Ibiza Music Summit, a conference for jobseekers who is depopulating and becoming more and more a reference to the industry, so to the business, so for the people.

Ibiza sometimes gives the impression of being more empty than usual. Nothing more wrong. The offer has diversified, expanded and spread over five months. There are more things to do over a longer period of time. The Easter weekend is one of the favorites from the new, independent and unconventional tourist model, perhaps unmoved by office dynamics. Technology allows some physical delay at work but wi-fi is everywhere oxygen for our keyboards. It goes on until October 15 when Solomun will close the Pacha, holding a copy of the keys in his pocket. They could serve very soon.

Dream Islands for rent. In Spain, Croatia, Sweden and Greece. But also in Venice

Santa Cristina, a private atoll 5 minutes by taxi boat from Burano. Tagomago, the most beloved by VIPs near Ibiza. Island Lodge in the Stockholm archipelago. Palagruža, a lighthouse in the sea of ​​Croatia. Silver Island, the dolphin-shaped island in western Greece

The Maldives were, until recently, the example of the formula “one island, one resort”, the experience of getting out of the world in a handkerchief all by itself, combining luxury, spells of part time happiness, privacy and nature. But on bare feet, in total intimacy, you walk not only in the water, in the Indian Ocean, but also in the woods or among the lagoon tameris. As it happens on the private island of Santa Cristina, in Northeast Venice. This eco-friendly hermitage (five minutes by taxi boat from Burano and Torcello), where the fishing valleys have just been reopened and the vineyard of cabernet sauvignon and merlot has been revitalized, belongs to René Deutsch, of the Swarovski family.

For centuries, a monastery, Santa Cristina, a mystery to the inhabitants of the Lagoon and for those who passed, protected as it was to the sight of others from the “barrier” of tamerici, welcomes guests from last September in the classical-modern spaces of Villa Ammiana, of 1870, of Venetian bill and recently restored. A hermitage to live in company, alternating relaxation and incursions at the Arte Biennale and exhibitions in progress in Venice. The cost is € 2,200 per night, for a minimum of three nights. The nine rooms have 16 beds: three days with 16 friends in Santa Cristina cost 412.5 euros per head.
The initiatory bath, in Ibiza, traditionally takes place at Es Vedrà, the rooftop-shaped stack that rises off Cap des Jueu, to the southwestern end. For others, ibicist baptism corresponds to a sleepless night in one of the mega nightclubs that make up the summer’s trends across the Mediterranean. Is there another way to live Ibiza? Yes, choosing cans and finishes, among the olive trees, the farmhouses of an inland hinterland, which offer a similar experience to those of Apulia. And there is a small exclusive island, Tagomago, where you’ll completely unplug your fingers, djs and dancing parties, half a mile from the northeast coast, after Santa Eulària des Riu, 15 minutes sailing, 30 from Formentera. An island that replicates the Maldivian experience of the island all by itself, but with the vivid colors and scents of the Mediterranean.

Green and rocky, sufficiently “robinsoniana” to the sight, Tagomago, a half mile long, has a width of 60 hectares. With its lighthouse built in 1909, it is a natural reserve area, birdwatching and walking trails. At the center of the island, only five suites, in a white-squared home that looks like Cycladic, equipped with everything you need. There is nothing to do with the desire for privacy. At the disposal of the lucky guests there is the pool, a cook, a gardener, the captain of the tender, the staff for the kitchen and the rooms. Ask them to tell you about Cristiano Ronaldo, Rolling Stones Ron Wood guitarist, actor Justin Bieber and Welsh footballer Gareth Bale, the latter past not by chance to make his wedding proposal. Tagomago also offers a great deal of water sports. Compared to the Tropics, you may miss swimming with the sea turtle. However, you never know …

Balearics: Even more intriguing in the winter

An original escape from the cold in Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera between mysticism, nature and archeology

For a different winter weekend than usual, the Balearic Islands are the right destination even in winter. Here are some ideas on what to do and see in Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera on a off-season trip.

Mystic Majorca – In December, discovering the many cribs in the city of Palma is one of the most enjoyable activities for families. Conventions, churches and cultural centers display their cribs, some of which are real treasures, such as the Palau March, a 18th-century Neapolitan crib made up of more than two thousand pieces made by hand and elaborated in the smallest detail. For a full immersion in the frame of the Major of the Balearics, you can stay in the sanctuaries of the island. The offer is very wide: from the Santuari de Cura, which stands on the top of Puig de Randa – the highest peak in the center of the island – at the Sanctuaries of Lluc, a privileged place of the Serra de Tramuntana with a precious artistic heritage and natural, there are many solutions offered to those who really need to regenerate mind and spirit, accompanied by their own family.

Menorca, on the trail of history – Starting from the heart of the port of Maó, Menorca, you can relive a bit of island history through the military itinerary. The immense fortress of the Mola, full of underground galleries, first defensive lines and ancient dusters, rises into a magnificent natural landscape. By walking, cycling, off-road or horseback, you discover the history of the island enjoying the spectacular scenery of the coast. This fascinating journey in the past continues in the underground tunnels of San Felipe, located on the southern shore of the Maó harbor. Another interesting itinerary is the one that accompanies the discovery of the so-called British route, a journey on the trails left – precisely – by the British during the period when the island was annexed in the territories of the English crown. Masseries, fortresses, walls, towers, and museums are just a few of the suggested steps to learn how influential the British have been to the daily life of the Spanish island.

Archeology in Ibiza – In addition to the Renaissance walls of Dalt Vila, a UNESCO World Heritage site, theatrical visits are also organized at the Punic necropolis of Puig des Molins. On the last Sunday of every month, through these representations you can discover the traces of civilizations that have lived in ancient times Ibiza in a fascinating and alternative way. Discovering the past of the island narrated and featured by actors is a fantastic program for the whole family, an experience that falls in love with young and old. Through the theatralized visits, you enter the everyday life of the Punic, Phoenician and Roman times, in the archeological context of the Puig des Molins, surrounded by the rich collections of sarcophagi and funerary elements that won the recognition of the World Heritage by the ‘Unesco.

Formentera and nature – There are 32 “green” itineraries of the island of Formentera. Cross-country trails that add more than 100 km of walking tracks, biking or Nordic Walking, and accompany visitors to discover thousands of natural treasures such as the rocks of Ses Salines, the endless beach of Ses Illetes, the rural landscapes of the hinterland and the iconic Faro de La Mola. The Lighthouse is located on the westernmost part of the island and from here there are several paths leading to woods and green valleys. Visiting the eastern part of the island, between the port of La Savina and Cala Saona, you will encounter what once was a quarry: a jagged coastline formed by a desert of rocks with strange and unusual forms, called Sa Pedrera. In this varied landscape, within a wooded area, is the Can Marroig Interpretation Center. Here flora and fauna are all within reach, thanks to a wide range of interactive educational activities that tease the senses and curiosity of children and adults.

“DJs ruined the night of Ibiza”

Ricardo Urgell is the incarnation of the “isla”: he has recently sold the Pacha group – 50 years old – for 350 million euros but has clear ideas for the future and much to say about the past

 

50 YEARS FROM “PACHA” The name was an idea of ​​Urgell’s first wife: “Call it Pacha and you will live by it.” So it was: in these pages, photographs of Hotel Pacha and Urgell’s office within the “payesa house” that deals with club and restaurant. In a detail, the formidable volume “El Baile”, the 25th anniversary celebration of the group, just 25 years ago
Crossing the cape island – including its two “ultra-marine” propaganda: on the one side, the 382 m altitude of Es Vedrà, the rocky tooth wrapped in the myth of the third most polar magnetic pole on the planet; on the other, Tagomago, the private island favorite of rock stars and footballers (Cristiano Ronaldo usually rent it, Gareth Bale chose to declare himself to his future wife) – they perceive the aesthetic motives that led the island to be contended for hundreds of years. Ibiza was born Phoenician, like Ibusim, in the 7th century BC, then became Roman, vandalized, Byzantine, Saracen (Yebisah) and finally Catalan under the name Eivissa, before the Catalan banning of the caudillo Francisco Franco it would pass on to the present statement. The primal nature of the island is well visible from the first portrayal of god Bes, an Egyptian masculine goddess depicted as cheerful and stubborn, sometimes obstinate in his genitals, always dancing.

 

It is an island of singular beauty even in the Mediterranean context, with cascades and coves that open suddenly after woods and pine forests, with a deep field alternating with ancient masses and crystallized villages over time. It is also an island that has known the blackest misery: not even half a century ago, ibizenchi were considered little more than muertos de hambre not only in the Iberian continent but also in the nearby Majorca, then the undisputed Queen of the Balears.
Things have changed, though it is true that Ibiza is now simply the most fashionable place in the world and one of the most expensive: and last year’s record-breaking tourist season was followed by the richer one this year. Yet today’s business successes are based on a strange yesterday’s migratory spirit, when a handful of “unadorned” unknowingly chose it as a free alternative port, adding its name to the grand tour hippie that already included San Francisco, Kathmandu, Amsterdam and Goa.

That was the basis of the island’s wealth: the people, the people who chose her when nobody chose her. Los pioneros call them here, and if the summer 2017 saw the disappearance of a pillar of the “first” group, Angel Nieto, the great motorcycle champion, nobody more than Ricardo Urgell incarnates the island of the beginning, the borders of the old town was all over.
Urgell, Barcelona and family born, arrived in Ibiza in 1968 after opening the first Pacha disco in Sitges in 1967. In the year of the 50th anniversary of the Pacha brand, Urgell decided to sell 90 percent of the group for a figure of around 350 million euros. We meet him in his historic office, within the same mass which also occupy the club and the restaurant. Behind the desk stands an immense black and white of Pacha Ibiza at the time of its opening: a white spot lost in the meadows, in front of the sea.
“There is an Ibiza that has nothing to do with the common and popular Ibiza whose image is sold in the world. The vulgarity of today’s millionaires, summed up with the superhuman growth the island has been subjected to and a certain general mediocrity in Spanish culture, has meant that the show is now not the best. This was a lost world, a wonder. When I arrived without a penny in 1968, Pacha had no phone, water was carrying her with tanks, and everyone had watched the bankruptcy because, to come to me, she would have to take the car, an absurdity for those days. “

Ibiza at Christmas

TRANSLATE CHRISTMAS AT IBIZA? 5 EXCELLENT GROUNDS FOR ORGANIZING THE TRAVEL

 

 

You are thinking about it for a while but you are still undecided. Because you would like to spend a different Christmas than usual and would like to visit the island of Ibiza. To help you, we can give you five good reasons to organize the trip right away.

1. RELAX AND RUNNING

In Italy, Christmas often looks too much like a frenzied race to the most expensive or particular gift. And it ends up being even more stressful than a normal week of work. But not Ibiza. On this island, Christmas is full of relaxation. In the larger cities on the island, shops are obviously open until late. But Christmas is still a moment to live in the most complete tranquility, in the company of friends and relatives.

2. NICE PERSPECTIVE TEMPERATURES

Although it is not summer (and probably the most beautiful beaches in Ibiza you can only admire them without diving into the sea – unless you are really enterprising), temperatures are more than pleasant and occasional rains. If you do not have the hard winter cold and you want to enjoy some sunshine without having to reach distant exotic destinations, Ibiza is the right compromise.

3. THE HOSPITAL ATMOSPHERE

Choosing Ibiza as a destination for a trip also means this. And the Christmas period does not make sense. Ibiza is a lively, always moving island, a melting-pot of cultures that becomes almost tangible, and that pervades streets, squares, places, people.

4. SPORT

If your suitcase never misses all the equipment you need to practice your favorite water sport, you will only be spoiled for choice in Ibiza. In particular, Playa d’en Bossa, Cala Martina and Playa s’Estanyol are some of the best places to practice windsurfing, kitesurfing and scuba diving.

Tourism changes: here are the most popular destinations

 

 

In the world of tourism is in the process of a small revolution that they are enjoying favorite capital once for the classic destinations.

So it happens that Dublin fights London and that the sparkling Amsterdam is more popular than the romantic Paris and Barcelona.

Tourism is changing and not least in times of crisis and international tensions.

To find out, we interviewed the “Rosmary” agency, which is headquartered in San Marcellino, and represents a point of reference for so many travelers in Avignon.

In October, it is possible to draw a first balance between the summer now behind and the last bridges of the year on the horizon, all on November 1, and the Immaculate.

“In the summer, the most popular destinations of those who came to us were Greece and Spain with distinctions: singles are thrown on Mykonos and Ibiza for nightlife and entertaining fun, while couples point to the quietest Santorini and Palma de Majorca.

This year we were overwhelmed by the boom of Egyptian Sharm El Sheik, who came back to life after a few years. “

biza: closing party 2017. Here are the festivals not to be missed!

In Ibiza the fall seems never to come! The party continues until October: do not miss these spectacular Closing Party!

The summer goes away, but the party in Ibiza continues. The big nights certainly do not miss the Queen Island of the unleashed parties, not even in September and October. To close the summer in the best way, choose your favorite closing party among the latest in the program, so the end of summer will look very far away!

 

Amnesia, the Ibiza temple of dance music, does not leave you even in the fall. Open doors to welcome you to its mega party until October: the closing of the “Music on” evening is scheduled for October 6 and 7, 2017 (yes, this year divided into two evenings, as if one was not enough!); the closing party of Hyte’s evening, on the 4th October 2017. Is not that enough? September 30 and October 2 for Elrow and Cocoon. Have fun, then relax for a bit for the winter!

The Privilege is ready to give the final shot. The closing party season arrives at the end of September with the evening of I Am A Richbitch on September 22nd, but you can continue until September 24 with the closing party of Suara on September 28 with the Afterlife, and perhaps even until October 7 for Supermartxé’s closing party!

There is no doubt: Pacha’s closing party is the “Pure Pacha” evening. Do you want the names? Bob Sinclar, Basement Jaxx, Todd Terry, Lunnas. Probably enough, so put a note on the calendar: October 7, 2017, closing party at Pacha de Ibiza! Usually the prices are not the lowest, but the names of the guests have told you ..! Once on the track you will tell us.

 

The Space Club of Ibiza changes name and becomes Hï. The point is: what are you looking for? Because of the Closing party, in the Ibis disco Hï, there is only one. Lovers of house and dance? Then go to the Glitterbox evening on September 22nd. Or wait 30 for the Black Coffee closing party evening.

Ushuaïa is one of the most successful in recent years in Ibiza. Hotel-screaming nightclub, Ushuaïa has an astonishing program ever. So you choose: Ants Closing Party on September 30, 2017 with Andrea Oliva, Francisco Allendes and Eli & Fur for a night of underground music, or Kygo’s closing night on September 10?

In order not to miss a minute’s party, book the hotel in the southern part of the island, where most of the venues are concentrated. For a quiet and affordable accommodation, choose Molins Park Hotel. If you still like to have music in your ears, even all day, point the fabulous Ushuaia hotel.

Farewell

September we go, it’s time to leave
Farewell code, price and prices
to the stars: September
let’s go, it’s time to start

Crowded beaches, star prices, mileage in front of every cultural and artistic attraction.

“Between the granite and the grenades let every hope you enter,” to quote the tormenton of Francesco Gabbani.

Already, traveling in the middle of summer is not always possible or satisfying, and often you are crammed with thousands of tourists looking for the last free centimeter of the beach or the last table in the restaurant. It is no coincidence that the Italians who decide to leave in September – 9 million this year – are in the shadows of August holidays, to enjoy a bit of peace and relaxation.
And it is when nature is tinted by intense autumn strokes that places become magical, blurred by an invisible palette that makes them almost surreal. Let yourself be captivated by the fascination of Seventeenth-century travel.

 

 

 

 

September in Spain
If you are among those who love the sea, but not the crowd, visiting Spain in September is the ideal. From Andalucia – where the prestigious Flamenco Biennial takes place in September – in Barcelona, ​​with its temperate climate, you will have the embarrassment of choice. And then there is the beautiful Madrid. If in August its inhabitants migrate to the sea because it is too hot, the Spanish capital rises in September. The city boasts some of the most beautiful museums in the world – including Prado, Reina Sofia, Thyssen-Bornemisza – as well as the Royal Palace and the Puerta del Sol. Then there is Spain’s spiritualists and sportsmen who choose this month to take the road to Santiago de Compostela along the Francigena Street or the Ruta de la Costa to avoid the torrid heat. An unforgettable pilgrimage in search of yourself, but if you are not the types of physical businesses, even visiting the pretty gracious town is worth it.

The fun of fun
The most unreachable summer destinations, however, are fun games, that is, those places recognized as the heart of summer movida. From Ibiza to Mykonos, passing through Gallipoli and Costa Smeralda, it is not easy to book a vacation here in August and, in case you did, the prices of the accommodation facilities tend to rise in the canonical holidays.

Low cost
Starting in September, however, you have guaranteed low cost in both flights and hotels and you can visit the choice destinations without the plague, enjoying the relaxation that only an isolated beach can guarantee. A few hours of travel and you will find yourself in a Caribbean sea to enjoy great food and natural fairytale landscapes in a Greater Greece not crowded. And the first place in the wish list is the pearl of the Cyclades, Mykonos, which with its white houses lying on a blue sky, pleases the body and soul. However, if you do not want to give up the nightly entertainment that these places represent, do not forget that September is, for example, the month of Ibiza’s nightclubs. Last madness before going back to the routine.

Do not miss the Ibiza closing parties

There is no time to waste if you want to attend the most exclusive closing parties ever. Choose the evening and the place you like and then book. Ibiza’s closing parties are waiting for you!

Come to the evidence that the summer is over: we would not want it, but it touches us. So let’s do it in great style: that is, participating in one (or more) of Ibiza’s closing parties. We selected the most exclusive evenings. You just have to book! Ready?

Everything started in just over a month at DC10: on September 27, the Paradise Closing Party was scheduled on the agenda.
The next day, on the 28th, is the time to greet the Privilege at the Afterlife closing party. Little anticipation: Nina Kraviz will play in the lobby.
The 30 will have to choose: they will close the season together, the Hï (that is, the former Space) with the Black Coffee evening, the Ushuaïa with ANTS, and Amnesia with Elrow Ibiza, the most crazy and colorful party to which You can participate.
On the 7th of October, however, there is no argument: everyone goes to Pacha for the last episode of the Pure Pacha saga. Among guest djs: Bob Sinclar, Basement Jaxx, Todd Terry, Lunnas. See you on the track.

The fiery summer of Alessandra Ambrosio

The Brazilian supermodel is the queen of this season. From Mykonos to Ibiza collects bikini and photos. Without losing sight of the most important affections

There were Mykonos and Ibiza, and still St. Tropez. And now it’s up to California. Alessandra Ambrosio, 36, was clear and did not betray the expectations of 8 million and a half followers: this summer would be the #foreveronvacation, ie #persempreinvacanza.

 

And so it is. In the creeps on the mattress (in the shape of a pink flamingo that this season can not be missed), in Greece in the middle of a sunset while kissing the boyfriend and father of his children, Jamie Mazur, with friends (models), dive companions, In water games with her children Anja Louise, 8, and Noah Phoenix, 4, in a paddle boarding session across France.

 

“Life is a Beach” or “Paradise on Earth”, it is common to write as a caption to a sea view photo. Because she always feels her summer. And the queen always confirms.

 

Love helps. And his, for 10 years to this part, runs swollen sails with the millionaire entrepreneur. “I am a person who travels and I believe he is keeping the spark alive,” she said recently. “Besides, even though we have two children, we try to cut us a little bit of time just for us, just me and him.” And that’s enough. Until the next holiday.

The best Villa in Ibiza

This property has a unique spa-like feel, and includes the services of a chef and waiting staff as well as daily cleaning and security, so you and your fellow travelers can indulge in ultimate relaxation.

Sit back on one of the lounge chairs and enjoy a break from reality by getting lost in the view of your private infinity pool’s edges blending in perfectly with the Mediterranean Sea below.

For a change of scenery, just take a stroll around your villa and you’ll discover a beautiful green garden and a hot-tub designed to blend in with its natural surroundings.

Ibiza is one of the most enticing destinations on earth, and Villa  does it justice.

Situated in Vista Alegre, a private and secure urbanization, it faces Porroig beach and the island of Formentera.

Everything about this property breathes cool and calm, from its sleek air-conditioned interior to its beautiful panoramic view of the hills and beaches below.

Villa was designed so that every bedroom has its own unique view of the Ibiza landscape.

Wide sliding glass doors blur the lines between the indoors and the outdoors, and heavy white or beige curtains give the option of privacy without breaking the relaxing atmosphere. The master bedroom is furnished with a king sized bed, a dual vanity, a walk-in closet, a television and a safe box, and features an en-suite bathroom with a stand-alone shower and bathtub.

Each of the other six bedrooms are furnished with king sized beds, televisions and have access to their own en-suite bathrooms with stand-atone showers.

The villa sleeps a total of 14 guests, which makes it perfect for a family or group vacation.

When you’re not savoring a Spanish barbecue alfresco in your outdoor dinning area, you’ll be able to gather around a gorgeous contemporary tree-trunk design dining table with your friends and family.

Alternatively, you’ll be able to have a quick drink or snack at the breakfast bar of your fully equipped kitchen.

Villa’s décor is as modern as it is soothing, with a Mediterranean palette of white, beige and ochre, accented with natural wooden details.

For vacationers wanting to stay active, a ping-pong table and a Gym overlooking a cliff-side view will help them keep up their routine. Several lounge areas, a media room and a home office guarantee the comforts of home

And if beer was the best sports supplement ever?

Rich in calcium, magnesium and all that is needed to rebalance the body’s salts, beer protects against cardiovascular risk, preserves good cholesterol and is also anti-inflammatory. Not to mention it has average only 35 calories per 100 grSince Luca Gatteschi, a national of the Italian Football Association, has stated that beer is “more valid than any other energy supplement because it is more complete”, many have wondered whether it is true.

We start with the objective fact that what is said is true: it is rich in calcium, magnesium and all that is needed to balance the salts of the organism; Group B vitamins and folic acid protect against cardiovascular risks, it also protects good cholesterol (Hdl), is anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and counteracts free radicals, without having average only 35 calories per 100 gr ..

What is underestimated and of which few speak, also because the studies in this regard are still underway, are the mysterious virtues of hops. Not everyone knows that only two plants belong to the cannabaceae family: hops and cannabis. The common points between the two are many, ranging from the remarkable variety of molecules that characterize it and make it difficult to accurately check the effects.

The main difference is that there is no illegal THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in hops, but apparently there are not any proofs yet – the euphoric and anti-depressive nature of beer is perhaps more linked to hops than alcohol. However, some studies point to a possible depressive effect when taken in conjunction with anti-psychotics and benzodiazepines. To keep in mind.

One myth to be discouraged is the anti-tumor ability of beer due to xantholol, a polyphenolic molecule related to resveratrol, the antitumor of red wine, since when in the 1990’s, researchers at Oregon State University discovered the potential anti-cancer They also found that the levels in the hop were so low as to require, to get a real benefit, some thirty liters of beer per day.

Some of the many therapeutic properties had already been discovered by the Sumerians; Then Chinese medicine used it, and continues to do so, to treat stomach problems, intestinal disorders, and tuberculosis. The idea of ​​using it as a cushion pad able to fight insomnia is original. From us we begin to recognize its prerogatives from the twelfth century but it took a long time before the antiseptic, vermifuge and bactericidal virtues were exposed.

Hops also contain phyto-hormonal substance, very useful for those who have hair problems as they stimulate the metabolic functions of the scalp tissue by strengthening the roots and accelerating growth. Phytosterols are substances similar to female estrogens and therefore help to prevent osteoporosis, relieve vision problems and those related to the prostate.

In conclusion, if beer is the best integrator, you can answer a “yes” sound, since it does all that others do, but it also has the beneficial effects of hop, those known and those still to be discovered. But above all it is the only one who takes care of your hair.

They are not ugly, they are unique: so are the ‘ugly pants’

Before it was the ugly shoes and now the trend comes to the pants, and the designers confirm it

 

Liana Satenstein – Pirate Bombshell in the J.W. Anderson. Huge cargo pants in wine color, in Hood By Air. Low-cut and crazy print at Eckhaus Latta. The floral leggings, signed by Balenciaga, which Rihanna wore in DJ Khaled’s music video, “Wild Thoughts”. Ugly pants were confirmed as a trend in the spring of 2017, but do not call them ugly! Let’s say they are a “unique” alternative; Or “have personality”; But nothing ugly. Let’s not be mean or cruel to these marginalized because the reality is that even they can molar. And if you feel a certain affinity for these rare specimens, do not be scared or embarrassed to recognize it: to show them, it only takes a little styling.

.
Think of Gucci’s tremendous metallic pink pants. If you think such a creep is impossible to wear in real life, there is nothing like following the “big horse” maxim and matching it with a polka blouse and flat shoes in white. Want to explore your ‘teenage mall’ vein, possible Insane Clown Posse hip-hop fan? Wear Proenza Schouler’s elastic wool trousers and, as an addition, an extra-long rivet belt (and, curiously, the long belt is now worn by men in London).

In the antipodes of this style, and for those looking for a loose and more feminine cut, it is possible to opt for the fusion of the picture and the steering wheel courtesy of Simone Rocha. Combine it with a button-down striped shirt, biker gloves and cowboy boots to give the touch of grace. What is the back of the tenebrous? Yours is the model paneled and given the return of Y / Project. In addition, in contrast to the wide leg you can emphasize the waist with a notched shirt. If you are passionate about the Renaissance, in Jonathan Simkhai’s taffeta shorts with gathers and drawstrings you will be the most chic of the inn. Say they have personality, say they are special … but never ugly.

The automatic distributor of follower and like on Instagram

In Russia, machines come up to buy followers (fake) and print photos. A strangeness that will spread in several other European countries but it gives a nasty surprise (spam)

At social networking time where everything is running too fast and the only certainty for some needs is to stay connected as long as possible, it does not surprise anyone invented an automaker to buy followers.

We are the generation that measures success even with the number of followers on Facebook, Twitter, or other digital platforms, so why be astonished? This must have been the thought of who has placed in some Russian city distributors to buy appetizers on Instagram. The Russian journalist Vasily Sonkin was in the past few days telling him, while colleague Alexey Kovalev, who has immortalized the totem inside the Okhotny Ryad mall in the center of Moscow, tells the story (via Twitter, of course).

 

With the news immediately bounced on thousands of curious accounts and workmen, the automated machine was tested by some curious to show that it’s all true and that on board there are several functions.

If the most absurd – and illegal, because it breaks the rules of the social photo – it is possible to buy followers, like or hearts on Instagram at a reduced cost (100 rubles, that is 1.5 euro per cent followers, 85 cents for as many inches ), The options also include maneuvering on VKontakt, the most popular Russian social network, the most popular and used of Facebook, and the printing of images from both platforms.

To make it clear and remove any doubts in the head of the least ladies, assuming that the mechanism is effective, logically they are fake followers, whose bulk purchasing has for years already been proposed on special sites and available for any type of social network . But the curiosity is another, because the company that designed the plan, Snatap, told Motherboard that in addition to the 20 vending machines in Moscow, St. Petersburg and six other Russian cities, the requests came as well From the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland, where the next totems will arrive, whose provisional rent is around 14,000 rubles, equal to about 220 euros, and later they will also accept promotional codes in addition to money.

It should be noted that each operation requires the inclusion of its own account, with the consequent spam bombardment of all its contacts. It is therefore useless to buy 100 more followers if then the move could cost you the protests and possibly the bragging of hundreds of virtual friends.

Monaco Grand Stories, the days of Glory of Formula One

The Rock of Monte Carlo. The most celebrated historic site of the Côte d’Azur. A mecca of luxury, full-time life and sport, because it is along the Principality’s streets that is the most exciting race of the whole schedule of Form 1. Monte Carlo, however, has for more than sixty years been The Mediterranean capital of the international jet set, and from 26 to 28 May, during the Grand Prix days, the atmosphere has become even more magical: it is breathtakingly breathtaking, with cocktails starting at sunset and Parties that last all night until dawn. Professional pilots and beautiful people. Top model, sports celebrities, stars and millionaires – the elite of the “sweet life” – are here to experience the thrill of the legendary race.
.

Those early years see the affirmation of the MARTINI Racing logo: blue, white, red and blue. A historic design that from then on has become synonymous with speed: for twenty-five years this image has represented its identity and has caused MARTINI to be associated with the fascinating world of motors, a “sweet life” that is more Sweet than ever. We are experiencing a new era in which Formula 1, its circuits, its riders, its competitive spirit are increasingly linked to the joy of living, the style of taste. And it is no coincidence that MARTINI has returned to Formula 1 in 2014 as the main sponsor of Williams’ English team, one of the stables that have made the story of this sport: founded in 1977 by Sir Frank Williams and Sir Patrick Head, won Sixteen world titles in 40 years, seven of which for single pilots (the other nine in the category of builders). Since its inception, Williams has operated in two directions: the technological advancement needed to ensure the primacy; And the consecration of the F1 and the stable as a symbol of something beyond the sport to overcome in the fields of design and style. Williams cars have always been the most beautiful. That’s why marriage with MARTINI looks perfect. It reminds us of the true meaning of Formula One: a great sporting competition, but also a unique opportunity to be in a good company to enjoy unique moments; An experience in which beauty and joie de vivre are essential aspects.

 

MARTINI has always had to deal with the joy of racing and the style of “sweet life”, and his story is deeply tied to the Principality, where he returns as the protagonist of this special moment that continues to generate enthusiasm, Giving birth to an event that is synonymous with style. Tens of thousands of people attend the race by the bridges of yachts moored along the circuit, the stairs and the terraces overlooking the track. The race of this edition of the championship will be fought as it has not been for years. It is the most demanding circuit in the F1 calendar and even the most celebrated. Winning this race is the greatest ambition in a pilot’s career, but just participating is a rare privilege.

This year, MARTINI returned to Munich to contribute to his fun and memorable experience, and GQ was present with his own ambassador: actor Alessandro Roja, a great passion for Formula 1 and a car collector, A man able to fully appreciate the exciting atmosphere that is breathing on the track and out of the symphony of the rotting engines that these days is felt in every corner of Monaco at the adrenaline guaranteed by the circuit. Alessandro Roja has lived in person the sweet life of the Principality, first of all as the protagonist of the exclusive party on the MARTINI yacht, together with the ambassador brand Jessiqa Pace: drinking drinks in front of one of the most peaceless views

Ibiza

From the hills and valleys of Ibiza to the mosques of Yemen, Villa  San Lorenzo draws inspiration from across the world.

As its name suggests, this beautiful vacation rental is perched above the San Lorenzo Valley in central Ibiza and has gorgeous outdoor living areas from which

to take in the views. Its elegant interiors, inviting courtyards and six bedrooms are modeled on both traditional Moroccan architecture and Yemen’s Great Mosque

of Zabid.

This luxury villa is laid out around a private central courtyard with a large pool, a row of loungers in the sun, and shaded sitting and dining areas.

A passage out of the courtyard leads to water gardens with a tea house in the middle,

loungers and a daybed on a sunny terrace, and an infinity pool with a pavilion overlooking the mountains and valley.

Linger outside and see if you can spot the neighboring island of Formentera, or enjoy the satellite TV, sound system and pool table indoors.

We already know who the twins of Amal and George Clooney look like


It has been the actor’s father who has talked about his grandchildren (and his daughter-in-law)

It may be because he is a veteran journalist (and likes to make good headlines). Or mere chance.

But the reality is that when Nick Clooney, the father of George, raises the bread. And it’s not the first time Nick, 83, confirms what we all wanted to know.

He did so when he officially confirmed his son’s engagement to attorney Amal Alamuddin –

“We like Amal and we are very excited about our family and excited about them,” he said – and he has done it now.

To know that Amal and Clooney had been the parents of two children named Ella and Alexander, the grandfather talked about something else

we all wanted to know (in the absence of an official photo of the children).

Already on two occasions this week, one on the Good Morning Britain program and the other by telephone conversation with Tricia Macke at

Cincinnati WXIX, where, surprise !, has told who the babies are like, who knew only two hours After being born via Skype

(he lives in Kentucky and the couple in London) apparently have dark hair and look like his father

or at least that says his wife thinks “Nina swears they have the nose I do not know what that means. Ica, “he said during the interview he kept on the phone with

Although at that time did not give much more data on the resemblance, the following day, in Good Morning Britain, extended something more this information.

“I’m supposed to be a reporter, so I should know how to observe, but I really do not know how to distinguish one beautiful baby from another.

” They are two beautiful babies, “said the happy grandfather, leaving the ball of physical resemblance on the roof of his woman.

“They would have to talk to my wife about which nose looks like her grandfather’s and what a nose to her grandmother’s. They are perfect, “he added.

And another headline: Nick has returned to talk about his daughter-in-law, Amal Clooney, and how he is seeing her in her new role as mother.

“I’m constantly impressed by her. She’s an incredible woman. George did well by marrying her. ”

Ibiza, an infinite season

From mid-May to mid-October. Summer 2017 in Ibiza is the longest ever. Hotels, resorts, beaches and clubs have been arranged to provide customers with maximum comfort even off-season. And that 2018 could begin already on Easter weekend.

Ibiza in winter is a concept that thought does not consider, I told you last January. Soon we will have to re-evaluate the idea. For many years, the island of Balearic is not content with just a beautiful season. In August 2014 Ibiza, along with Formentera, had recorded the historic record of attendance: 375,140. The data had made institutions and traders reflect on the possibility that it would actually be good and fair to spread the season over four months. We’re five now.

In the last three years Ibiza has changed profoundly. Fun has become aware, spouses afternoon parties (those ending at midnight) and attention to quality of life is not only about the young European scummers but also the family size, which can find in Ibiza every comfort possible, even for the Their creatures, even out of season.

Socio-demographic-economic impact on the tourism of the Usaua Beach Hotel on the island I’ve talked to you for a long time and its shock has not stopped being heard yet.

Right in front of the colossus of Playa D’En Bossa a few weeks ago came its night spin-off, Hiba Ibiza, above what once was the legendary Space. From the first impressions it seems we will forget it before the expected but it is too early to spit judgments. Ibiza was given to death. Many observers have underestimated their power to regenerate, to shaping their body to obliterate the signs of time.

Comfortable a slow but significant exodus, even intermittent, Ibiza lives discreetly even before and after the two solstices. Artists, entrepreneurs, writers, designers. They are more and more those who have chosen the island, if not as headquarters, as a supportive study. How to give it wrong. A favorable climate, a particular air, which knows magic, makes it all easier. Who can afford to work remotely, even for short periods, should not think about it for a moment. Goddess, the New Year’s experience was very special but just have patience a few weeks to see the island blossom.

The Pacha is open all year round. And that already is comfort. This year, in the week of May 15, it was already very hot. The 19 Marco Carola at the Magnesia, the 20th anniversary of the Pacha, celebrating the fifty seasons on the island, the 21 Guy Gerber at Destiny. I am not talking about July or August. I’m talking about May, with the 2017 season officially kicked off in her last weekend, where the maestranze find themselves at the Ibiza Music Summit, a work conference that is depopulating and becoming more and more a reference to industry, so to The business, so for the people.

Ibiza sometimes gives the impression of being more empty than usual. Nothing wrong. The offer has diversified, expanded and spread over five months. There are more things to do over a longer period of time. The Easter weekend is one of the favorites from the new, independent and unconventional tourist model, perhaps unmoved by office dynamics. Technology allows some physical delay at work but wi-fi is everywhere oxygen for our keyboards. It goes on until October 15 when Solomun will close the Pacha, holding a copy of the keys in his pocket. They could serve very soon.

The Mummy: 7 Reasons to See The First Dark Universe Movie

The first film and prototype of the Dark Universe project, Alex Kautzman’s film is a real journey through time through movie history and a step towards the future of ‘new monsters’

From June 8th, there is La Mummia in the hall, the beginning of the Dark Universe project signed by Universal Pictures, which wants to give life to monsters of classic horror. You know already that the next movie will be Frankenstein’s wife and almost every day comes updates on the cast, already full of names like Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem.

It is difficult to express a unique view on Alex Kauzman’s film, and interpreted by Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis: Mummy in version 2.0 can be a classic, though not in the sense that (perhaps) can be understood and different in same time. Here because.

In the beginning, it was Indiana Jones, then came the Templars and the Zombies
Among the scenes of the prologue and the first third of the film, rather than the remake of the 1932 and 1959 film, the thought goes to Indiana Jones’s saga of archaeologist and adventurer: there are both aspects because Nick Norton (Tom Cruise) is More than an adventurer, is a soldier who, in order to round up antiquity, sells them to the best bidder.

Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis), on the other hand, is the invaded Egyptologist to know, ready to defend archaeological goods. Or, at least, it looks at the beginning. Then, in the film, references to Templars and Zombies flourish, since Ahmanet’s servants look more like non-dead than ambulant mummies.

 

In addition to being a former dancer and, recently, a highly-sought-after actress – who will soon be in the room with Charlie Theron in Blonde Atomics – Sofia Boutella can boast of being the first mummy woman: the role is traditionally male but not in Dark Universe. It is Ahmanet’s desire to start ‘games’, starting with the patricid – which recalls, very Greek mythology – to start the curse, and then point to seduction. A modern dark lady, with epic recalls.

Despite the indisputable fascination, made of bandages, but also of flesh and sensuality, one can not feel a sympathy for Ahmanet: neglected by his father, deceived by his servants and rejected even in the twenty-first century. Tom Cruise, in spite of the undisputed fascination for mummy (spontaneous or induced by the same, you do not know), still prefers Jenny blond, even refusing the gift of immortality.

 

The original mummy, as well as that of Stephen Sommers (with whom he shares the spectacular sandstorms) of 1999, sees little or nothing. In Alex Kauzman’s film, however, there is nothing else. Not so much in terms of passion scenes (just evoked) or nudity (equally alluded, between veils and various bands) of Ahmanet, but for that correlation, which again knows of the ancient, between sex and death. It even touches Tom Cruise, who finds naked in a morgue. It touches the same Ahamanet, forced to ‘suck’ the vital lymph from humans through deep kisses. Not to mention the ménage à trois between Nick, Ahmanet and Jenny, which takes on an old story like the world, the dramatic love triangle of an undecided man between two women.

The character played by Cruise is the paradox of the hero who opposes the monster: selfish, moved only by interest, Nick Morton performs his parable towards love for his neighbor (in this case, for the Egyptian blonde and For humanity) thanks to the fighting Mummy. Ahmanet is, in fact, to make the first glimpse of pity in Nick, when he attends the ‘torture’ that takes place in Jeckyll’s lab. Completely at the mercy of the events for most of the film, the male protagonist is the object of the Egyptian princess’s desire almost to his knowledge and addresses the situation with the same expression of those who are unbelieving, but no such questions arise. With some (perhaps) inadvertent chicca, Cruise seems to be present only in the scene of the Aryan, when he seems to notice Agent Hunt during one of his robbers Mission
Impossible.

By next season, these are the shoes you should NOT buy

Mytheresa buyers believe there is a tendency to avoid footwear during the remainder of the year

Yes, we have not yet officially entered the summer and we are already

thinking about next season, but there is a reason (among several) that justifies it: the classic spring-summer

and autumn-winter system is becoming more and more More diffuse in the industry (something visible for both insiders

and

those less close to this fashion universe) and that causes the pieces to be cross-functional.

There are very few that are left exclusively for a station and, if it is so,

the cyclical rebates are always a good opportunity to build the closet with foresight.

The same with which professional buyers have to act, which are already clear: 1) what will be carried out during the next

year and 2) what to invest and trends to avoid.

From porcelain to punk

NICOLE KIDMAN BEST-OF BEAUTY-LOOKS

Nicole Kidman now proves her transformable beauty in Cannes!

The styling ranges from porcelain complexion on the red carpet to punk on the screen.

The testimonial of Neutrogena – Nicole Kidman will be 50 years old on June 20 – has chosen a renowned styling team for

the performances.

These include Lisa Eldridge, creative director of Lancôme, and hair stylist John Nollett for L’Oréal.

By the way, the clothes selection comes from the German stylist Julia von Boehm

Pretty ballerina! Nicole Kidmann shows up with ultra-strict chignon at the amfAR gala in Cannes.

While John Nollett created the high-necked dresser, Lisa Eldridge was responsible for a fitting make-up: “Fresh, glowing

skin and a pink lip for tonight”

Designer Paul Surridge

In fact, one might think that Roberto Cavalli and Peter Dundas were the perfect match: the Norwegian designer, who had previously

been the creative director of Emilio Pucci, shared Bohemian aesthetics with the Italian fashion house,

a certain tendency towards rock’n’roll decadence And the collections he designed as Cavalli’s creative director spoke

the typical hippie language the label stands for. Nevertheless, the collaboration did not last long: Dundas presented only three womenswear

ready-to-wear collections at Milan Fashion Week, the first in September 2015, in October 2016, only a year later it

was already announced that Peter Dundas Roberto Cavalli as a creative director.

There were no official reasons at the time, but it was probable that Peter Dundas’ appeal was not paid economically.

This announcement is now over a year ago, now followed the announcement of who will be his successor: The Briton Paul Surridge

– so far, the name is mainly known to fashion insiders. He began his career with Calvin Klein in the 90s, worked with Burberry under Christopher Bailey

in 2003, and joined Raf Simons’ team at Jil Sander in 2007 as the designer of menswear. From 2011 to 2014 he was the creative

director of Z Zegna, the more sporty line of Ermenegildo Zegna, most recently he worked as a Creative Consultant for Acne Studios and also concentrated

on menswear. Basically, therefore, he dealt with a major part of his design work with menswear – which is one of the reasons why the Roberto Cavallis

choice seems so surprising for him as a creative director – possibly an indication that the fashion house will focus on this segment in the future becomes?

The decision for Paul Surridge is probably a cut in Roberto Cavalli’s history, a complete stylistic reorientation.

Especially from his most recent work, for Acne Studios, his aesthetic preferences are derived: rather minimalist and sexless,

in play with the body rather distant, timeless-retro – thus quite exactly the opposite of the wild, sexually charged image, that We know about Roberto Cavalli.

On his Instagram account, the designer poses mostly landscapes and little of his work. Roberto Cavalli CEO Gian Giacomo Ferraris

did not refer to his aesthetics in his official statement, but to other designers’ preferences; He called him a “great team player,” praised his “360-degree vision of

brands” and his “management qualities.”

It is therefore probable that the brand will be heading for a complete new positioning, perhaps the responsible people also hope for a

similar development as Gucci did when Alessandro Michele took over the scepter: he completely changed the aesthetics of the house and made Making

the brand one of the most sought after today. We will see if this will succeed in September 2017 when Paul Surridge

will present his debut collection for Roberto Cavalli – it will be for spring / summer 2018.

The sun, the sea, the smell of sunscreen, the colorful costumes, the sunglasses, the aperitifs, the beach volleyball games,

and even the nightclubs dancing on bare feet on the beach …

All this can be Summarize in one word: summer. Everyone, especially those who work and who is studying all year long, can not wait to arrive this season,

which is partially hated for the hot heat that it brings with it actually is also synonymous with relaxation,

for at least two weeks’ year. But in all this enthusiasm, have you already decided where to go? Did you book? Have you agreed with your friends? In short,

do you have at least one answer? Many of you will resort to the last few days to book with the classic last-minute vacation solutions, most often not cheap.

The boredom of traveling photos on Instagram all the same (and tips to fight it)

This is what emerges from Sony Mobile’s ranking of the world’s most photographed sites and monuments.

Trionfa Paris with its Eiffel Tower, but also boredom: Instagram is full of photographs absolutely identical to each other

The Paris Eiffel Tour dominates the list, followed by a remarkable detachment from the London Big Ben.

But what emerges from the top 30 of the most photographed historical places in the world is, above all, the lack of imagination.

Accompanied by a handful of social yawns. Sony Mobile presents the search results #XperiaNewPerspectives, with which it has decided to investigate

Instagram’s world in search of the most popular monuments and locations for a recollection.

He is, as it was said, the Paris Tower, with the beauty of 4,654,699 photos uploaded and hashtaggate.

35% of which, however, taken from the same identical position.

Even more monotonous images of the Big Ben of London, a silver medal with the beauty of 2,435,223 shots, incredibly similar to each other in half the cases.

With a booty of over one million quotes, the Parisian Louvre, the New York Empire State Building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa and Notre-Dame Cathedral once

again appear in the French capital.
“The scenery of photography has changed exponentially over the past ten years, in particular through greater accessibility and quality of cameras,”

commented Scott Gray, Chief of the World Photography Organization. – This accessibility has been enhanced by smartphones,

whose technology allows people to enhance their photographic capabilities,

but also have greater resolution to work on those shots. This ability to capture the unexpected can really be an element that can eradicate photographic

 

creativity logic, generating unique and iconic images for the user.

It is absolutely fantastic that photographers use different techniques and filters but these even more unique images, though needing editing,

will require minimal retouching and will give a more natural touch to the photo. ” Already, but an effort must be made to avoid falling into banality.

For this reason, Sony decided to shoot some famous international photographers of its new Xperia XZ, asking them to immortalize

the monuments in the standings according to their sensitivity. The result? You can admire it in our gallery,

where there are some unconventional shots that our protagonist

is also loved by our beloved Colosseum. For the rest, here is some advice from the award-winning travel

photographer Lluís Salvadó in sight of the holidays. Take new perspectives and create really personal images galleries.

1. Playing with colors and lights: the scene may be different simply by using some clever trick;

2. Take advantage of reflective surfaces: even a puddle is enough to give a new perspective to an archaic historical site;

3. Look for beauty in the surrounding architectures: in detail and in structural components, art can be hidden;

4. Experiment with new perspectives: from above or below, without fear of trying new solutions;

5. To give concreteness to the shot: you can use people and their figures to give a new meaning in terms of time and space.

With the bike always

The rediscovery of the two wheels goes far beyond the urban shift: a Momondo study shows that 13 out of a hundred compatriots go on holiday with the bike.

Here are the most fascinating places to ride in Italy and around the world

Bike mon amour. Always and everywhere. Even on vacation, even in distant countries and antipodes of the globe.

The passion for the two wheels has never drowned, but there is no doubt that in the last luster there has been a rediscovery, due to a number of factors.

The desire to forget the daily traffic, the evolution of technology that allows to produce means closer to the needs of a more and more

heterogeneous audience, as well as the enjoyment of enjoying panoramas and paths that bring in contact with nature and back in time are only Some

of the main ones. Clearly speaking, there are data that certify a boost for the two pedestrian assisted wheels: 124,000 pieces sold in 2016,

more than twice the 56,000 placed in the previous year.

Beyond an electric motor that helps push, however, the trend is the desire for bikes, which Italians also like to take back during their holidays.

So much so that the people who plan the trip increase to look at places with suggestive cyclists.

According to a Momondo study – 24,700 interviewed in 23 countries and 1,009 people for Italy – the idea attracts 13% of compatriots,

who are only overtaken by Chinese and Polish at world level. Of these, little more than half aims for lonely holidays, just to dedicate themselves entirely to

cycling.

The question then is where to go? The surge in the market has made antennas both to producers and to administrations,

more sensitive to creating exclusive routes for cyclists. A recent trend by us, but already in place in many countries,

from North Europe, the land of excellence for the two wheels. The ten targets proposed by Momondo include, for example,

the Lofoten Islands, Norway, where the Vestfjord route allows to wander around mountains and coasts, altering rustic villages

and local fishermen in an uncontaminated countryside. The ultimate gem: the pedal in the midnight sun, during the summer months.

Moving by little, you arrive in Eindhoven, with the inimitable but short bicycle track of just 600 meters

(not to be missed in the Netherlands where the bike is a real means of transport) that combines the watercourse Collse with Opwettense to Nuenen

, both portrayed in Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, and if you dive into a work of art is not enough, you can not miss the night out in the fluorescent

path that shines reproducing the starry night of the Dutch artist (one found, Of the Roosegaarde design studio).

Going south, in France there is the Route des Grandes Alpes, which from the banks of Lake Geneva to the beaches of the Côte d’Azur offers 684 km of

postcard views.

Okja, a Netflix case at the Cannes Film Festival

It was the great news of Cannes 70 but it became a controversy before the festival began. The streaming platform presents the

first of its two films in competition for the Golden Palm and is chaos

When the Cannes 70 titles are announced in April, the two Netflix films on the Golden Palm

(Okja and The Meyerowitz Stories) do not go unnoticed, indeed, many are welcomed as an interesting novelty.

From there to a few weeks, the festival, in the certainty that the two films will have no distribution other than streaming,

puts their hands on for years to come by publishing on its site a statement that, in fact, excludes from the competition,

Starting from 2018, movies that do not go to the movies. It is the beginning of a controversy and, of course, its closure. With a (abrupt)

shutter.
But is not so.
Cannes 70, inaugural conference of jury presentation.

President Almodovar reads a few notes back on the subject: from his point of view cinema is born for cinema and, with no

preconceptions about technology, nothing can replace the magic of a room and a big screen.

An intrigue in the corner of the sworn Will Smith, who realizes that the fuse is ready to break out again, brings the issue to the tie:

streaming does not rule out cinema, who likes it – and cites the example of his children –

fails Do less than the second as the first one; Together they guarantee a more in-depth culture and driven by always personal choices.
But now comes the time of the first Netflix projection at the festival, that for journalists, and something goes wrong.

Technical problem, the projection begins again, but in the middle it is rain of ‘buu’ and whistling, some – it seems –

also directed to the brand. It’s up to the Okja cast to bring the discussion back to milder tones.

The first one to react is director Bong Joon Ho, who, unmoving, immediately exclaims,

“Better, we’ll see the movie twice!” But I’m Tilda Swinton, the antagonist of the little protagonist and her four-legged friend

in the movie, the words that make it happen. “We came to Cannes to see our work, not to be rewarded.

And being here is an unbelievable opportunity, “he said, and then responded to the jury

president’s statement on how it would be absurd to reward with the Golden Palm a movie

that will not be seen on the big screen. “We’re his fans, he can say anything, there’s room for everyone,” he says and is – for now – the final joke.

Behind the scenes most interesting, what is talking about is changing production, festival or not,

arrives when we take the floor is President of Plan B, Dede Gardner. He tells that the director has

sent the script to a very rooted partner in the USA, because “he would be dealing with two very different universes for the first time.

The film has American and Korean stars, is shot in two languages, in three countries, on two continents, with a child

crossing a sea of ​​cultural and even difficulties. When we read it, we did everything to be part of this work,

so unique and singular. ” At least the second that sees Plan B next to Netflix, for production or distribut

Apple, a speaker who speaks thanks to coming Siri?

The most powerful (and expensive) of Amazon Echo and Google Home, Smart Apple speaker should be presented in June

Apple could announce in June the arrival of its highly anticipated home speaker. The answer to Amazon Echo and Google Home,

which everyone is expecting for months, should arrive in June at the WWDC, the annual Apple Developer Developer Conference.

A more powerful case with better sound quality, but it should cost even more than competitors already on the market. More than $ 180 of the Echo,

but with superior technical baggage and a processor-level computing capability that approach it more to an iPhone 6 than to a portable speaker.

At least, these are unconfirmed rumors reported by Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the top listed analysts in the Apple sphere on the specialized 9to5Mac

site: Kuo himself is confident that the device will come out on time in time for Christmas gifts, but it is not Sure about the ad in the next June

event. However, such a move would be in the spirit of the WWDC, in order to show it in advance to developers and to find new possible applications

for the device.

There are not many clues as to how the speaker design will actually be – which might be called “Siri Hub”

– but the strongest rumors speak of a Mac Pro-like speaker with a mesh lining that remembers the Boom of Ultimate Ears,

And similar to Beats Pill + launched a couple of years ago (see photo above). You can ask for weather information, record appointment

appointments, or play music, and thanks to HomeKit, you can interact with the rest of the home. Just Siri’s final jump inside the apartment

could be Cupertino’s key move to develop his Internet Infrastructure to the fullest, already put on with House’s inclusion on the iPhone and iPad.

The museum of objects that failed

From Apples Newton to Colgate’s Lasagna, the road to industrial progress is paved with failures. So the Museum of Failure was born

Failure is also an art. If you do not believe it, try asking the gurus of our time, better if you are on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, and you will have the

usual answer: “Falling is the first step to succeed.” A phrase has become a motto for the great mass of startup founders, but we tend to attack you with a difficult

label then delete it, but this is another story.

For Samuel West, a Swedish psychologist, bankruptcy is the necessary step to make improvements to our lives. “Success is always the same, bankruptcy is unique,” says the

fan of innovation that has collected more than sixty items, gadgets and devices announced as revolutionaries and passed on to history as fluttering flop. A series of

holes in the water that sank the image of big multinational corporations and portfolios of small companies ready to make profits and instead disappeared from the market.

Just to allow people to “learn from the failures of others,” the lordly gentleman will exhibit his collection starting June 7 when he opens the “Museum of Failure” in

Helsinborg, south of Sweden.

The idea is to show how anyone can go wrong, so the opportunity to fail should be conceived as an option to accept, both for individuals and for companies. “Bankruptcy

is Progress,” is the message that filters from West’s find. Confirming the conviction has put together the worst thinking of the last thirty years in a pile of flops

that includes high-profile names such as Apple and Coca Cola and unfortunate intuitions such as the Twitter Peek soon passed to a better life.

The first rule is that everyone is wrong, including giants, so that one of West’s pearls is the Newton, the palm-wrench with Apple’s ninette remembered as one of the

lowest points in the company. There are then experiments that define azzardati is euphemistic, such as the lasagna on the Colgate ragù, noteworthy in the world not just

for food; Inevitable, then, that frozen pasta was soon forgotten. From everyone.

In the error network, Coca Cola is over, and twice! Prior to pointing to Coca-Cola, the desire to diversify the drink produced Coke II, of which no trace, and the Coca-

Cola Blàk with a coffee flavor, commercially between 2006 and 2008 before retiring. Strong with a total domain of handsets, Nokia tried the big hit with N’Gage, which in

corporate minds would have been the most portable console of the universe, but which instead turned out to be a jumble good only to squeeze the budget Of the Finnish

house.

That script followed Blockbuster, an invincible chain for years before falling into disgrace under the blows of streaming content and bankruptcy projects such as a

rental DVD for a week, a boomerang avoidable and thought to digest.

The inability to predict future horizons was the cause of Kodak’s disintegration, the brand-name excellence overwhelmed by digital adventures, while the company was

still thinking of the brain in the past. One demonstration was the Digital Camera D40, anchored to the analogue press, which only now after years of social sharing is

knowing a new interest. Conversely, blind confidence in progress has been a joke to Sergei Brin and Larry Page, far ahead with Google Glass, cumbersome and ineffective

to meet the ambition of the creators (as opposed to Snapchat glasses, focusing only on On photography and video and for this reason they have for now been very welcome

by consumers).

Celebrating gentle sex is always a good and just thing, doing it with an ad hoc production that, unlike zero, is twice the standard price, is not the best business card.

For information, ask Bic, where there is a live flop of women’s pens (Bic for Her). Harley-Davidson’s fragrance is also hard to comment, while still wondering what went

on to the Twitter Peek producers, the device that was just twitched in a world where smartphones were already dominant. And the good thing is that on Amazon you can

still buy it.

Speaking of errors and horrors could be missing Donald Trump? Of course not, because among the many attempts to profit the current US president invented TRUMP, The Game,

and then the Vodka Trump. An absolute genius, regardless of the actual sales of the above mentioned findings.

Stone Island experiences the Dyneema, the strongest synthetic fiber in the world

The Italian brand presents in Milan the second chapter of the project Prototype Research, with 100 limited edition jackets

made with the special tear-resistant fabric,

punctures and abrasions

Level, apart from the low cost for intercontinental flights

Level, apart from the low cost for intercontinental flights
A new company within the giant IAG, the British, Iberia and Vueling: 99 Euros for the Barcelona-Los Angeles

Many talk about it but no one (or almost) makes them. Apart from Norwegian, which remains on rates a bit ‘higher, intercontinental low cost flights between Europe and the United States have for years been subject futuristic.

A short should start the Ryanair agreement with Aer Lingus and the same Norwegian to launch routes at low cost between the two sides of the Atlantic. Meanwhile, however, for the first time there is someone who is serious.

It is Level, the new company founded within the giant IAG (International Airlines group), that of British Airways, Iberia, Vueling and its Aer Lingus.

The first take-off are around the corner: it starts in June. Tickets start from € 99 each way, and the routes will be served by the time all from Barcelona El Prat, the company’s hub, to San Francisco (Oakland), Los Angeles, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and Buenos Aires.

It can bet that if the first months of operation, served by two Airbus A330 (soon expected to become about thirty), will yield good results s’infittirà the network.

Operationally speaking, for the first time Level will be a kind of Iberia in disguise. Pilots and crew will in fact be supplied by two-thirds by former Spanish flag carrier.

Then come 250 recruitments in the land of Catalonia. Because we start from Barcelona? Simple: the interconnections available with low cost Continental Group, Vueling. “Barcelona is the home of Vueling – said Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG – and this will enable our customers flights from all over Europe” connection.

The A330 will be configured with 293 seats in economy class and 21 premium. But be careful: 99 Euros (or rising) only cover the chair. In economy class all other services, from meals to entertainment on board until the baggage to be shipped, will be paid.

In the premium segment, however, it should go up in price, but remain below average that a European traveler is usually expected for this type of travel, they will be included.

Even Norwegian from June activate new links with the United States. Starting from Edinburgh o Dublino to secondary airports in New York and Boston promotional rates are 69 euro for arrival and 138 for the return.

Around those 200 euro total, those on which it should be around Level.

However, at least for Italian travelers, offering IAG is more interesting for both the amount of connections between Italians and stop the Catalan metropolis for their cost.

It is no coincidence that for the Spaniards departures are even considering “various options including Italy – added Walsh – for now we start from Barcelona with the aim of extending the network”.

Even Air France and Lufthansa, through its subsidiary Eurowings, seems to be moving in this direction.

Ibiza for everyone: it’s vacation time!

 

Spring is approaching and the desire to holiday increases. The destination suitable for all needs? Surely the Balearics!
Just tick see a ray of sunshine and feel the temperature increase, that’s the desire of sea, sun and holidays you pitfall in us, especially if we spend all year in cities like Milan, the holiday atmosphere that will really express little, not to say nil.

Here, then, that with the beginning of March, the days begin to give a pleasant warmth, allowing us to fantasize about what will be our next holiday destination.

But what might be a choice fits in practically any?
Surely Ibiza! Yes, Ibiza, because thanks to all of its features can be said that it is precisely the goal that meets all requirements.

Most people who have never been to Ibiza think is an island dedicated exclusively to the night life, the chaos, the transgression, at parties and nightclubs. True, but not only.

Because Ibiza is indeed the right place for those who want to make the party rich night life and unbridled fun, but it is also a wonderful choice for all lovers of the sea and the beach: Many indeed are the coves (more or less hidden) in where you can spend days in peace, in contact with nature and with silence.

And for those who prefer not to spend the whole day at the beach, there are always walking in the center or hiking in search of new places and why not, to discover even a little ‘history.

The secret Spain

Close your eyes and think of Spain.

What are the images that your mind suggests to you?

Bullfighting, flamenco, the elegant streets of Madrid, the long Rambla and the works of Gaudi in Barcelona, ​​full of the folklore atmosphere and allure Arabic Andalusia, the beaches of Ibiza and Formentera.

But Spain does not end here: not everyone knows that this land hides the surprising and mysterious natural landscapes that are worth a trip entirely dedicated to their discovery.
Lanzarote – Lanzarote is the easternmost island of the Canary Islands, and, despite being formed by a volcanic terrain that resembles the lunar landscape, life is the space within it so amazing.

You can see the effect touring the volcanoes of the Timanfaya National Park, visiting the Cave of Verdes – enclosing a surprise inside – or Charco de los Ciclos, a lagoon with surprising coloring.
Rio Tinto – This place was chosen by NASA and the European Space Agency as the scene of some experiments, because the mining area of ​​Rio Tinto – Huelva – somehow reminiscent of the planet Mars with its mysterious landscapes: a river, rocks reddish and little vegetation.

To know the area, it recommends a visit to the Mining Park of Riotinto, including a train ride and a visit to the mine.
Bardenas Reales – an unexpected view, because situated in the leafy Navarra. Not everyone knows that in the south-eastern part of this area extends 42,500 hectares with semi-desert formations, gorges and mountains that seem to come straight from a science fiction movie.

About the film, this Nature Park has been the location “Die Another Day” with Pierce Brosnan.
You can follow the signposted routes on foot, by bicycle, on horseback or in vehicles.
The Cave of Wonders – A name, a reason!
The Aracena cave stretches for more than 2 kilometers in length – of which 1.2 open to the public – where you can contemplate different types of stalactites, stalagmites and lava flows.

An underground landscape and forget the outside world, passing by the room of the Cathedral, the Crystal factory of God or the Bath of the Sultana, there will be illustrated and explained by a guide.
The cliffs of the Basque Country – traveling on the coast of the Basque Country, it is worth stopping in Zumaia, Deba and Mutriku.
The cliffs of this area are breathtaking, for their 50 million years of geological history that the action of the sea allows us to see.

Ideal admire them making a trek on the coast, or by participating in one of the sea excursions that are organized.
Las Médulas – Gold Mine discovered and exploited in Roman times, is today a World Heritage site and is definitely a place to visit and enjoy some of the play of light that creates the sunset on the rocks.

Recommended start your visit archaeological classroom, to then make a stop at the Belvedere of Orellán.
As Catedrais Beach – A walk by the sea in Galicia, between the arches of an imaginary stone cathedral.

A scenery worthy of the framework of a surrealist painter, restful and disturbing at the same time.
During July, August and September it can only be accessed by appointment, as well as during the Easter holidays – between March and April.
Caminito del Rey – At one time, this path of Malaga was considered the most dangerous in the world. Today you can travel with confidence, even if the sufferer will have to deal with vertigo.

But, unless your phobia is not really serious, this adventure is definitely worth living!

Then, once you find the right property for you, just as you would in Italy, inquire of all the pros and cons of the house, determined to be of “health” of the property, and – after you supplied the NIE (Número de Identidad de Extranjero, a kind of tax code to foreigners in Spain) and have opened a checking account in a Spanish bank – initiated the practice of buying and selling.
For what concerns the real estate market of Ibiza, keep in mind that the average prices per square meter are around 1200 euro but may also touch peaks of more than 4000 euro (depending on the area and type of property) and that areas best to buy the house in Ibiza are also the most modern and equipped with services that might like to hear about (such as private parking, proximity to supermarkets or essential services, transport links, etc.). For example, Ivissa is more expensive than some peripheral areas but still be able to do good business here also. Otherwise, in the San Carlos area and Roca Llisa you can find nice apartments and in good condition. One of the most popular areas is then that of Sant Josep de sa Talaia, about 15 km from Eivissa, because of the wonderful houses and terrific scenery. Moving inwards, in the most mountainous part of Ibiza, the prices can go down and then you can buy an apartment of 40 square meters for EUR 60,000 or so.

Ibiza in winter

Ibiza in winter is a concept that thought does not consider
As the world celebrates the arrival of the new year with extravagant parties, in Ibiza it’s exactly the opposite. Because here, where every summer night is New Year’s Eve, there is no need for great celebrations

Lilliput is a fictional country invented by the writer Jonathan Swift as the setting for part of the book Gulliver’s Travels.

It is located in the Indonesian archipelago and is inhabited by the Lilliputians, tiny men about twenty centimeters high. When they find Gulliver shipwrecked on the beach do not hesitate to tie him to the ground, one of the sharpest snapshot of my childhood. Ibiza in winter is like Gulliver, a sleeping giant, watched over, cared for and protected by its inhabitants, the Lillibiziani, which are now more than 140,000 “because in Ibiza you live very well in winter”.

I have no doubt, especially if you have just shaken off an endless season that starts in May and ends in October, lived a hellish pace. But the feeling as soon as you land at in a warm winter day, is another. It’s a strange feeling. Yes, trivially strange. But are the platitudes to guard the rules of life.

Walking on the main road, one that converges in the majestic Ushuaïa Tower, watching what until a few months ago was the Space Ibiza, is alienating experience. The silence that surrounds me is surreal. Alone is worth the trailer of the new season of The Walking Dead. Around me there is literally none.

A light and pleasant sea breeze gently moves the dangling nylon that wrap the insignia of the bars. It is the unique sound of an afternoon on Mars. Because Playa D’en Bossa 2 January is Mars. All closed, todo cerrado, with empty storefronts, as burglarized by previous humanity alerted by an impending apocalypse.

Among the creeks that cut to the infinity of the residence walls, the sea looks so calm it seems fake. Even the color is not natural. Few waves fold back on themselves, as if they know that they are there and that must do, inevitably, their craft. A couple of small sailing boats have been beaten away from a likely storm a few days earlier. Now lie half-broken embedded on the coast of Playa Talamanca. No one seems to notice. It must be normal. The beach, unrecognizable, is animated by restaurants, open and quite popular, that give me one of the most human moments of this unusual holiday: a lunch of fresh fish on the beach with the bomber backed chair beside. Priceless. A little farther on, the port retains a certain elegance. I wonder if the docks mourn the absence of luxury yachts.

At least you can see exactly what’s on the other side of the moon. The works are in progress in the period of the fittest. They settle on the streets, it enhances what you need to improve. It gets worse there is to worsen but like so much of the new rich, and that hurts only the sight of nostalgic. With a bit of healthy vision, you can also switch over. Inside and in the more distant beaches, the most beautiful, winter amplifies that feeling of magic for which Ibiza is famous all over the world.

Ibiza…

Outside the clubs, there is a whole Ibiza slow and relaxation
Raise your hand if, in front of the name “Ibiza”, do not immediately think to a huge open-air disco.

Among the best in the world, sure, but still a destination that has made the small hours on his business card best known internationally.

There is a time of the year, however, between the closing and the opening party of the most famous clubs (from the second week of October until after Easter) where the island changes its face and becomes the perfect place (even family Friendly!) to spend a holiday or even just a long weekend in total relaxation.

 

Napflix, the portal of boring video to combat insomnia

What better of the final movie of the World Chess Championship to get to sleep?

Insomnia sufferers have an ally in more to try to fall asleep: Napflix. The idea comes from Spain and hints at Netflix, but instead of films and TV series, has about as boring to offer internet. Hundreds of videos divided into categories in order to help everyone get to sleep: the final of the 2013 championship chess match to a million points in Tetris until the entire video of the weekend Formula One Grand Prix of Germany 1997, free practice including, just to name a few.

The “platform video siesta” – how do you define the portal – sifts 300 and spends hours of movies that are uploaded to YouTube every second to be continually updated on slower and less exciting video of the history of the network, also using a dark theme try to minimize the white lights of the display that can cause insomnia and a reduction of REM sleep, the most important phase to have a good rest.

“After I fell asleep in front of a boring game of football and no goals, I thought about all the things that did annoy me and I decided to collect them in a digital platform for the siesta that helps people get to sleep,” says Mashable in Victor de Tena, one of the creators of the site.

Ibiza and Formentera. dream holidays (even without the jet set)

 

IBIZA – Put a day at sea, the island of the Mediterranean that you have captured her heart. Put to want to get in front of your eyes a magnificent view of cherish on cold winter days. So you decide to direct your delicious Panda white car (which on Isla gave you the most satisfaction of a Maserati) towards Illetes. And a souvenir guide you. I stop to think of a holiday many years ago, where, with one of your best friends had experienced this magic almost 24 hours a 24. I was so excited to make her sleep four hours a night.

He only endured for the infinite love that binds us. Once you arrived at the beach that morning we wanted nothing but two chairs and an umbrella, to soothe our limbs, tired from lack of sleep. But nothing, seemed like a mission impossible. As long as the distance does not last like a mirage this amazing stretch of coast. Lapped by clear blue sea and offering a breadth of boats in the harbor sensational. And that boat. But I was so hot that not even I realized. I gave him what he wanted most: shade and comfort. Only return to take Amanda was waiting for me at the beach earlier realized I happened to be in a parallel universe. Here Birkin were used as beach bags.
And today this memory brought me here. I had to wait a lot to be able to accommodate but I witnessed an unusual spectacle. I found out only now, after chatting with plagist, that the movements that I observed were justified. Beside me in the sun’s sister and brother in law of an emir of Qatar. Their crew descends every morning before everybody and waits for the beach staff to set their location. All the beds are covered with various profunatissimi white towel. Pillows, basket with sunscreen, minibar by great design. Even a play worthy of a club of excellence. I spotted off the dinghy women refined and discreet elegance, sit next to me and enjoy this splendid sea. A single question intrigued me: but the Cartier bolt also exists three laps in the three golds !! ??? At the same time, the other side of an Arab prince beach (of which I did not understand the name) has set up a corner of paradise, even taking personal sunbeds from the yacht.

I think there were more his bodyguards that bathers in that stretch of beach. Meanwhile an industrial magnate has landed with the requirements creating havoc and movement. The poor plagist is going to take away the umbrella of two swimmers in order to bring a third to him !!! What has further intrigued me is the mega yacht service personnel. These are mainly Asian. The afternoon is spent with a bustle of private tender together with those of the famous restaurant located behind us. I wanted to observe the menu, full of peculiarities. All possible cuisines to satisfy demanding taste. Now while a cruise ship, said to be the most expensive yachts in the world, with two helicopters on the decks, is likely to take my view of Ibiza darling, I will continue to watch the sea, for a day of fun from having shared such a surreal world.
