La historia de Los Rothschild, la familia más rica del mundo

En el año  1798 , un exitoso banquero judío-alemán decide educar a sus cinco hijos en finanzas y los envía a distintos países de Europa para expandir su negocio. Hoy en día, 260 años después del inicio de esta dinastía, esta familia ha logrado posicionarse como una de las más poderosas e influyentes de toda la historia, interviniendo en sucesos tan importantes como la independencia de un país latinoamericano, salvando a Estados Unidos de varias crisis financieras y evitando una completa conquist...

Bosman Family wines with skin contact: from pink to orange

Look at the colours of these wines. To the right is a skin contact pinot gris and the left a full-on and delicious orange wine. Ignore the moth that snuck into the picture. I’m back in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley (Heaven and Earth valley) at the 8th generation Bosman Family Vineyards. They have been on the land since 1798 working the vineyards founded by a Huguenot in 1699. For the uninitiated orange wine isn’t made of citrus. It describes the colour […] The post Bosman Family wines with skin cont...

March 2021: Travel Summary and Statistics

Last night, I slept for 18 hours. Collapsed into bed at 3 p.m. and made it out only at nine the following day. The day before, I did exactly the same. My friends, in March, I well and truly hit the wall. Burnout affects most travellers eventually — me fairly regularly — and of course I knew I was pushing myself too hard. Despite recognising that fact, however, it was still tough to pause. I feel as though I’ve been handed a golden ticket; an opportunity to explore New Zealand...

Rivers Up 2021

As it straddles the Dronne river, the charm of the village of Bourdeilles comes from how houses, gardens, and empty fields are arranged on the river’s left and right banks. On the left bank is the town center, the Bourg. The right bank is host to the “not-quite town center”, the Faubourg.   Houses in the Bourg rise upward along the road leading up to the castle. A castle that is defensively perched on a rocky outcropping. It is literally overhanging the river.   Houses in the Fa...

What’s it Like in New Zealand’s Managed Isolation?

Whenever I mention to anybody in New Zealand that I’ve been through their country’s managed isolation facilities, they offer up a sympathetic wince in return. “How was it?” They ask, preemptively turning up their noses. “Great!” I always reply with a grin. “I loved the whole experience.” And honestly, when you compare what my life was like in COVID-crazy England (terrifying) to spending two weeks in a high-end hotel, where I literally just had to sit around while somebody else brought f...

A budget guide to Glasgow, Scotland

While Edinburgh may woo visitors with its genteel charm, and there’s no escaping the sheer beauty of the Scottish countryside, visitors to Scotland too often overlook Glasgow as a destination. Scotland’s largest city has plenty to offer the budget traveler, whether it’s tremendous free museums or the city’s renowned social life. It’s a working city full of contrasts, by turns gritty, glamorous and generous – and one well worth getting to know a little better. Here’s how to enjoy this great city ...

Chicago aquarium let penguins roam

The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is one of the many popular attractions around the country currently closed because of the coronavirus, but for the aquarium’s penguins, that closure came with a silver lining. Since the building is devoid of guests, staff let rockhopper penguins leave their habitat to explore the rest of the aquarium. In this video posted to Twitter, one penguin (named Wellington) can be seen checking out fish in the Amazon exhibit. Penguins in the Amazon?! 🐧🌴 Some of the pen...

Woman Falls In Love On Air New Zealand Flight, Looks For Help To Find Her Seatmate

A woman on Air New Zealand’s flight NZ441 from Auckland to Wellington met the man of her dreams, who happened to be sitting beside her in row 17. She was squeezed into the middle in 17B and didn’t mind it one bit. He even said he wanted to see her again, which makes the lack of contact details all the more mysterious.

Tray.io brings in $50M more at a $600M+ valuation for its workflow automation tools

Organizations are always looking for new ways to work more efficiently, but too often the problem is that, in a digital-first environment, they have to get in line to ask their in-house IT experts (or even more expensively, external consultants) to build those solutions for them. To underscore the demand for a better approach, today a startup that has constructed a way around that, specifically in the world of app integrations, is announcing a sizeable round of funding. Tray.io, which has built ...

Air New Zealand passenger removed

Many airplane passengers are guilty of not paying too much attention to the safety video, card, and demonstration on airplanes before takeoff — an act of obliviousness that apparently can cost you big. A woman sitting in an exit row on an Air New Zealand flight from Wellington actively refused to watch the safety video, or read the instructional card, and was consequently removed from her flight. Understanding safety instructions is always important, especially when you’re seated in an exit r...

Traditional dishes from New Zealand

Long before European settlers came to New Zealand, there were the Māori. Māori people migrated from Polynesia, and their diet was a mix of ingredients native to New Zealand (or Aotearoa) and those brought with them in their travels. They relied heavily on kai moana (sea food) and the kai whenua (food from the land), including kumara (sweet potato), yam, taro, kiore (Polynesian rat), and kurī (Polynesian dog). A lot changed with the arrival of European settlers. Pigs, goats, and hens — along ...

Passengers Booted from Air New Zealand Flight for Refusing to Watch the Safety Video

A woman and her travel companion were removed from Air New Zealand flight NZ424 from Wellington to Auckland for refusing to watch the airline’s safety video. The woman was first reading a book and then looking at her phone. When the pilot announced they’d be returning to the gate, though, the woman did start talking on her phone — she “loudly tried to make a booking with Jetstar.” Continue reading Passengers Booted from Air New Zealand Flight for Refusing to Watch the Safety Video...

Pack like a Pro for Your Next Outdoor Adventure

Packing is an essential part of any journey – this is especially true when planning an outdoor adventure. For starters, good packing means you’ll be carrying the right equipment. It also helps you to make an itinerary beforehand, even if it is mental. While making your backpacking trip checklist, you’ll consider which activities are planned for the day and how best to dress. Do this for every day of the trip, and you will have made a tentative schedule in your mind. Packing for outdoor activiti...
