He then played for several professional football teams, but his career was cut short due to injuries. Johnson then turned to professional wrestling, where he gained fame as "The Rock" and became one of the most popular wrestlers of all time.

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.

Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible Sherborne Abbey

Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible 2023 Review: Devon & Dorset Tour

We took the Bentley on a tour of Dorset and Devon, stopping at The Eastbury Hotel in Sherborne and The Cary Arms in Babbacombe Bay on the English Riviera.

The GTC Speed is a two-door, four-seat Grand Tourer offering opulence and extreme supercar performance, albeit at a hefty price. Though it delivers amazing quality for value compared to similarly priced cars, particularly when you consider the fine craftsmanship and futuristic engineering that go into making this legendary cruiser.

The Eastbury Hotel

The Eastbury Hotel Review: Bentley Continental GTC Devon Tour

Our welcome was personable and friendly, something the de Savary hotels do extremely well. After leaving the Bentley GTC in the free parking at the rear of the hotel, we were shown to the Rosemary Suite (all rooms are named after herbs they grow), a private bungalow at the bottom of the walled garden. The room was utterly delightful, an ivy-covered Victorian Garden Potting Shed, down a lovely path, just a stone’s throw from the spa.

McLaren 720S Cameron House Hotel Scotland

McLaren 720S Best Hotels & Whisky Distilleries Scotland Tour

We started our journey in Surrey at 9 am and headed north, basking in the explosive snorts of the 710 bhp McLaren 720S engine. My colleague David and I were pretty stoked about a week in the Scottish Highlands. As Lex Luthor so aptly condescended in Superman II "A good time? Is that all you care about? North, Miss Teschmacher. North!".

Full review of the McLaren 720S.

Double Gold - Plaster metal, Edition 1 of 3.

Equestrian Sculpture By Frippy Jameson

Frippy Jameson (born 1978), who now lives and works in the Scottish Borders, studied Fine Art Sculpture at Camberwell College of Art and Design, but, as she explains when telling her own story, she didn’t follow the mood of that moment in the early nineties, when YBAs such as Hirst and Emin were generating all the critical excitement, controversy and headlines, with their conceptual new art.

What is Luxury And How Has It Changed?

Luxury is ephemeral and different for everyone. For some it’s a hot bath or a luxurious massage after a long day, for others it’s a stay in a fine hotel where you are pampered and served as royalty. For brands, it is exclusivity, the use of the finest materials, the latest technology, age-old craftsmanship, skills handed down through the generations, attention to detail, exquisite engineering, hand-crafted manufacture and lastly a price that places the product or service at the very top of the market, available only to a select wealthy few.
