One of the most beautiful cities in the world is Milan. This holiday destination has a love affair with luxury, from the finest houses of design and fine dining. The place though remains in touch with its past and never loses its charm.

What to see in

Here are some of the best destinations in Milan:

Duomo cathedral – The Duomo took about six centuries to finish. It was synonymous to an impossible task during its time. We should be thankful though that the builders pushed on putting the white and pink marbles together incorporating about 3,200 statues, 135 spires, and about 146 sets of stained glass for its windows

Teatro all Scala – Milan is the home of the opera. It is fitting therefore to see the most renowned opera house in the world here, the Teatro alla Scala. The most famous opera singers have performed here to the amazement of the six-storey high galleries. The opera season usually start on the first week of December.

Whether you’re a globetrotter by passion or profession, you know that the best thing you can expect from any city is its nightlife. This is why we’ve gathered the best night clubs around the globe. If you land in any of these countries, don’t forget to give their prime bars a try.

Bar Isabel in Argentina

The two most talked-about bars in Argentina is the Bar Isabel located in Buenos Aires, within easy reach of those who are already in the capital.

If you’re all for the glitz and the glamour, you might want to drop by this watering hole. Just make sure that you’re dressed to kill as well. Chic and smart is the way to go here. The interior of the bar closely resembles its next door neighbor, the Casa Cruz, probably because both were designed by fun loving Chilean Juan Santa Cruz.


How to escape hot summer in Anchorage, Alaska

The hot hot summer is coming, it can be felt already. Nothing to do again global warming(excepted travel green, bike to the job, think environmental friendly). If you ‘ll find in a good summer day the climate unbearable, then Anchorage in Alaska is the right place for you.

Anchorage, Alaska is located slightly farther to the north than Oslo, Helsinki and Saint Petersburg. It is surrounded by mountains (Chugach Mountains) and enjoys a subarctic climate.

The city is unbelievable young, its build started in 1914 as the end of Alaska railway. Buildings from the 50’s are already historic.

 

I was very surprised in Anchorage about the length of the day, due to its nordic latitude. Also surprising for the tourists and new residents are the short daytime in winter.

Medical Tourism for the Uninitiated

Thai Hospital

Thai Hospital

It’s getting more and more popular to travel abroad for healthcare. Whilst traditionally for many it’s been a major taboo, the reality is that it’s sometimes cheaper and also a great deal safer to travel abroad for health care.

Medical tourism is actually big business for many countries you wouldn’t really think of. Thailand, Panama, Malaysia and India are among the most affordable and well known destinations in the world when it comes to medical tourism thanks to the level of luxury that can be afforded to patients that are on a relative budget. It’s a lot easier to suffer in luxury than it is in a state-ran hospital!

Oasis of the Seas – One Month Later

Now that the media hype has fallen a bit from Royal Caribbean’s latest ship, we have to ask ourselves “So the ship is big, but is it fun?” I mean, it’s easy to see where having the largest cruise ship in the world can go wrong: long lines, crowded passageways, sold out restaurants. Would the Oasis of the Seas deliver? Early reviews are saying: yes.

While the Royal Caribbean’s flagship can handle up to 6,300 passengers, as of late most cruises have been departing with about 4,500 passengers. A healthy amount of people for the size of the boat: you never feel lonely and you never feel crowded. High-tech crowd management systems work behind the scenes to maintain traffic, assuring that elevators go where they’re needed and hallways don’t become overloaded. For the guest, that means unfettered access amongst the ship’s 7 neighborhoods.
