what i'm reading: ali: a life by jonathan eig

Ali: A Life is an extraordinary book about an extraordinary person. It's an epic page-turner at more than 500 pages. This is simply a fascinating book about an utterly fascinating person.If Muhammad Ali hadn't existed, you couldn't make him up. No fiction character on this scale would be believable. It would be a cartoon.The only athlete who comes close is Babe Ruth -- but Babe Ruth never aligned himself with an outlaw counterculture and made shocking pronouncements about the U.S., imperialism,...

The origins and history of Nando’s

Ask any Brit what their favorite takeaway spot is and they’re sure to mention Nando’s. Ask them about the origins of Nando’s menu, and they’ll probably say Portugal. It’s a reasonable answer. Its logo is the Rooster of Barcelos, a famous Portuguese symbol. The food is seasoned with Portuguese spices and Portuguese bread rolls are among the restaurant’s many sides. However, to label Nando’s a product of Portugal isn’t strictly true. Nando’s was in fact born in Johannesburg, South Africa, makin...

Exploring a national park by 4×4 is exhilarating, but doing it on horseback brings with it a whole new level of excitement. Without the growling of an engine you can approach much closer before starting to disturb the game. Horses are not noisy, or invasive. Wild animals are aware of the horses’ presence but completely […] The post Family riding holidays in Africa appeared first on A Luxury Travel Blog.

5 amazing solo travel experiences in Africa

February is typically the month of romance.  However, as I am personally not a big fan of so-called ‘Hallmark Holidays,’ it seems fitting to reflect on embracing solitude – while travelling.  There could be no better continent than African to find oneself (safely) alone amongst wild things.  Here are my reflections on five of the […] The post 5 amazing solo travel experiences in Africa appeared first on A Luxury Travel Blog.

What is the Wim Hofmethod

I look down to see that my toes are a striking shade of vermilion. Upon closer inspection, my feet, legs, and the rest of my body, all the way to my shoulders, match the color of my toes. I’m in nothing but my soaked bathing suit and my woolen hat dancing to an upbeat tune, and after about one minute of a fun-filled, ungraceful jig, I can feel my body getting warmer. The 12 people similarly shaking it on Que Caliente beside me must be heating up again, too — everybody has a huge smile on thei...
