“A LA PLAGE” IN FRENCH RIVIERA: Saint-Tropez, the horizon bigger, between sails and beautiful people

For more than half a century, a piece of blue has turned to the gym, that is, in a certain way of life. I have exactly the same age, and in my years I have seen grow – without realizing it – all the nuances of what clove color, suspended between sky and sea. Nice to meet you, my name …

A CRUISE, VERY SCOTTISH: The Caledonial Canal, with a river boat.

A British Airways flight, your, to Scotland. This is my proposed trip, but do not worry, because I’m a Scotsman quiet, and I have two passions (one small and one large), but only one of them – I hope – is contagious for you. Curious? Starting from the smallest weakness (the non-contagious), I must confess that I like to distill …

Welcome to Denmark, I’ll introduce you to a friend of mine – very special, indeed, extraordinary – it never ceases to amaze me.

Oysters and blue crabs, my childhood friends. Do not ask me, too – please – because my parents called me Annapolis call me Anna, simply, and I’ll take you in a few frames of my life in Maryland.

GIORGIO ARMANI, AN ANCIENT FEELING: Meet what amazes you, in the suggestion of architectural languages of Bramante, an amazing man, a gift of the Italian Renaissance

I dress Armani, Giorgio Armani, but not because it sets the trend, rather, because the things that he imagines and transformed into clothes, or perfume, they have – at least for me – all an identical feature: tonal, join what I are “inside”, what I want to be “out”. Hello, I’m Michele, an Italian, and I live in Milan, from …

MARSEILLE, THE SCENT OF MEMORIES: Sometimes they come back, you gorgeous. There is a particular shade of emotion tied to feelings, whose flavor is inside you, forever

I follow Meeting Benches for some months, and I was intrigued – especially – the editorial contributions of some readers, that is, from what their share of travel experiences.

TIMELESS, AND ONLY FOR LOVE: Sussex, where time stands still, inside an old doll, or in a dusty model of a sailing boat

It is not a question of money, but of taste. Not a problem of time, but how viverti inside. Maybe – but I speak of myself – you must have enough powder on your face, to realize that you have arrived at the last quarter of a mile, of life. I love my wrinkles and my wounds, I know every …
