It has the potential to revolutionise various industries, from healthcare and education to entertainment and finance. It can also enhance our lives in many ways, such as making us more productive, creative, and connected. But what exactly is AI, and how is it changing the world?

Ardray Whisky - A Truly Delicious Blended Whisky

I typically abstain from writing about blended whisky, but it is necessary to change that stance given the resurgence the category is experiencing. Blended whisky, when crafted with care, can offer a delightful drinking experience, deserving far more recognition than it currently receives. Gone are the days of dismissive notions about inexpensive, characterless bottles; instead, we must shift our focus to the profusion of new premium releases that have emerged.

Ferrari Roma Review

Futuristic Ferrari Roma Review: Touring The South & Wakeboarding At Hove Lagoon

We cruised in the Ferrari Roma for a 300-mile tour of the South in the glorious summer heat, passing Hove Lagoon for some windsurfing and wakeboarding.

This is the new "discreet" GT from Ferrari, an upgrade from the Portofino which we loved. Ferrari has changed 70% of the components and you feel that in the driving.

Avani+Khao Lak Phang Nga Thailand

Avani+Khao Lak Phang Nga Thailand Luxury Travel Review

An hour and a half away from Phuket International Airport, in a beautiful secluded paradise, is Avani+ Khao Lak. Situated on an exquisite stretch of white beach, looking out onto the furious Andaman Sea - a beautiful juxtaposition. With five restaurants, a skate park, two climbing walls, two pools, an all-purpose gym, and more available excursions than you could ever imagine, I would challenge you to be bored!

Lincoln Seligman Exhibition

Lincoln Seligman has an almost umbilical link with India. His family is connected with some of the great names in the country’s history and literature, from Mahatma Gandhi (a close friend of his paternal grandmother Hilda Seligman) and Rudyard Kipling (his mother’s godfather) to the shepherd boy Chandragupta, who became the first Emperor of the Indian Mauryan dynasty around 320 BCE. A bronze sculpture of the boy, created by Hilda Seligman, now sits in majesty on a red sandstone plinth in front of the Indian Parliament in New Delhi.

Koh Tao Thailand

SCUBA Diving Around Turtle Island In Koh Tao Thailand

Arguably the most unique sport in the world: Scuba Diving. The feeling of being metres deep under the water, flying through a completely different, frankly alien world, is akin to nothing else. What do you think of when someone says scuba diving? Exotic places, warm sun, white beaches, incredible sights and beautiful wildlife. Master Scuba Divers on Koh Tao offer all of this and more.

Tewkesbury Park Hotel

Tewkesbury Park Hotel & Spa Cotswolds Review

The drive up to Tewkesbury Park Hotel in the Cotswolds is utterly fabulous, a welcoming gateway that winds half a mile up through the gorgeous greens of the golf course leading to the main building.

There is plenty of parking and electric charge points, not needed this time as we were touring the Jaguar F-Type with its powerful V8 engine.

Jaguar F-Type R 75 5.0 Litre V8 AWD 575PS Review

Jaguar F-Type R 75 5.0 Litre V8 AWD 575PS Review

The Jaguar F-Type R 75 is a refined luxury two-seater sports tourer, but is it fast, comfortable and stylish enough for the £103 K price tag?  We took it gallivanting around Gloucestershire, staying at the Tewkesbury Hotel for a little golf and fine dining to find out.

The R 75 comes with the 5.0 litre supercharged V8 with 567 bhp powering from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h) and an automatic ZF 8 speed gearbox. Its 4.47 metres long, 2 metres wide, weighs just under 1.8 tonnes and does around 26 mpg.

Anantara Elephant Jungle Bubbles Thailand

Anantara Elephant Holiday With Jungle Bubbles in Thailand

Mr Prayat’s T-shirt said it all. It instructed me how to drive an elephant and reminded me how to speak elementary mahout.

“Pai!! (Forward). “Ben Kwa!” (Turn right), “Ben Sai! (Turn left) Toi  Sock!” (Back). There is no elephantese for “Stop!”  An elephant stops when it wants to. It rarely gives way and normally assumes it has the right of the way. Together we walked under the kapok silk trees, river figs and elephant ears and elephant apple trees of north Thailand, beside the River Ruak.
