This site will point you to places you have never been to before.
You'll also be introduced to films (rated out of 5 stars), festivals, artists of all kinds, getaways and restaurants. Some amusing bio anecdotes may pop up.
I won’t be cluttering my pages with announcements of concerts and info you can easily grab from the Internet.
So join me on the ride into the rugged and the remarkably luxurious.
We all need to discover open borders both in the world and in ourselves.
