Visiting Private Homes in France with the French la Vie

      Along the back roads through Provence, I am lucky enough that friends I have met through the brocante over these last thirty years invite my groups to come and see their homes. To go beyond the facade by entering into the soulful homes offers such thoughtful generosity into the culture and life of the French. Even if you do not speak the language of the host the spirit moves. I love that I can show those who come and join me a personal one of a kind experience by visiting my friends, to w...

How to book a family farm stay

Experiencing the great outdoors and spending time on a real-life working farm is a great way to switch off from the modern world. Not only will you slow down, but you’ll also be amazed at how much you learn. And nothing bonds a family more than enjoying the eggs that you’ve just collected from the chickens for breakfast or milking a cow together. While staying at a five-star resort with all mod cons can be fun, farm stays let you connect with nature and with each other. You’ll always remember...

Best cocktail bars in Denver

Denver is a wonderful city to visit for many reasons. It’s beautiful, it has some of the best recreational cannabis dispensaries in the US, and it has an excellent restaurant and bar scene.

Along with classic bars that have been around since Prohibition, it seems like a new cocktail haunt is opening every other week in Denver. The city’s cocktail community is tightly knit, and it’s clear that there is a lot of suppo...

The fresh bout of buying has come about after the bank said it had received regulatory nods from the central bank and the market regulator to hike foreign ownership limit to 40 per cent.“FAB looks a bit pricey especially compared to peers, so it doesn’t look like the best option,” said Issam Kassabieh, senior financial analyst at Menacorp. “But it is s...

CEOs of Delta, American and United Take Out Full Page Ad for Protectionism

Qatar Airways owns a 49% stake in Air Italy and is attempting to revive what was once Meridiana into the dominant airline in Italy. With Delta partner Alitalia struggling, that seems possible. Although given Alitalia's challenges, draining subsidies from Air France and then Etihad and the government of Italy the Italian aviation market isn't a place that's likely to produce profits. Delta sniffed around looking to invest in Alitalia, but no deal has been done. US airlines don't want to compet...
