Easter Island: exploring the unknown
by Steven Kennedy from World Complete
Travelling can often be described as exploring the unknown. Above all seeing new cultures and ways of living. In other words, stepping out of one’s comfort zone and trying something different. Going as far away from home as could be though possible.
And it doesn’t get much further away than Easter Island; deep in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It’s fair to say that it’s not the easiest place in the world to get to however. It’s well worth firstly the time, then effort and finally expense…
Sixth edition: the story of magnificent Mara
by Max Nyawira from Azari Africa Safaris
Magnificent Mara, true to its name, is surely one of the most sought over safari destinations across Africa. It is home to the 7th Wonder of the World. People from all over the globe visit each year to witness the great wildebeest migration.
Observing the savannah from a birdseye view, the lone acacia trees and scattered animals make the grasslands look as if they are dotted with nature. That is why Mara got its title from the local Masai people who named the land “Mara”, which translates to “spotted” in Masai language (Maa)…

Forgotten archeology: Gobekli Tepe
by Shebs Alom from Shebs the Wanderer
Sanliurfa, or ‘Urfa’ as it is known to the locals, is one of the earliest occupied regions on Earth. Urfa’s history is vast and home to civilisations predating agriculture. Göbekli Tepe is a prime example of this. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is a 12,000-year-old temple northeast of the city.
Discovered only in the last 60 years, Göbekli Tepe is said to be older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids in Egypt!
When Klaus Schmidt made one of the most startling archaeological discoveries of our time, he said, “This is surely the first human-built holy place.”
Gastronomy travel: Pici all'aglione
by Francesco Falciani from Villa Vetrichina
Sunday lunch in Tuscany resists all fashions. Above all a ritual to be celebrated in the name of family conviviality and gastronomic tradition. Unbelievable but true, the Sunday lunch menu is more or less the same as 100 years ago the juice doesn’t change much.
On Sundays in Tuscany I like to eat firstly appetizers with croutons and cold cuts, then homemade pasta, roast, and dessert, wine, grappa and finally whims. Pici all’aglione is a homemade pasta typical of a Sunday lunch in Tuscany and especially in the Val di Chiana area. Pici all’aglione are a first course of the Tuscan tradition…
