Scotland, Knockinaam Lodge, Chef Tony Pierce

  Tony Pierce’s plans to become an architect took a sharp turn in a different direction when he caught sight of a bevy of young women enrolling in a catering course. He weighed the odds — 16 women and seven men in the class — and decided to take a chance. The class turned out to be an opportunity in more ways than one, the first of many off-the-cuff choices that led to Pierce’s ranking as one of Scotland’s top chefs.

 Reconnect with the world in The Islands of Tahiti

Located in the South Pacific, The Islands of Tahiti are just eight hours by air from California. Surrounded by pristine, crystal-clear blue waters, the 118 islands and atolls offer natural beauty, authentic island culture and unique French Polynesian style. The Islands of Tahiti are world-renowned for white-sand beaches, stunning turquoise lagoons and varied landscapes ranging from coral atolls to volcanic mountain peaks. Privacy comes naturally in The Islands of Tahiti and offers visitors the space to relax and reconnect and to be Embraced By Mana. Mana is the life force and spirit that connects all things in The Islands of Tahiti.

Travel With App-titude

Besides starting with the same letter, what do traveling and technology have in common? Unless you’re completely off the grid and have somehow   managed to cut yourself off from the new electronic gadgets or mobile   devices introduced since the turn of the century, you know the two are   becoming more and more interconnected. Even though a smartphone may   still not be able to physically transport you from one place to another,  there’s not much it cannot do to help travelers with their myriad   needs.
