The Five Best Sleeper Trains in Europe

The Five Best Sleeper Trains in Europe

There is an unassailable romance about travelling by sleeper trains in Europe. They call to mind the grand rail journeys of the past: Paul Theroux on the Iron Rooster or Kerouac’s drifters jumping freight trains in “On the Road.” Today’s rail journeys seem rather sterile in comparison, with once mysterious routes so well-trodden there is little left to say about them. But there are exceptions. Some sleeper trains still convey the sheer romance and glamour of embarking on a grand journey across a continent full of possibilities.

Kia Stinger 3.3 V6 GT-S - Kia's Wild Child

Kia Stinger 3.3 V6 GT-S - Kia's Wild Child

Kia describes the Stinger as: a halo performance model. They say It is a GT car and not a hard edged sports car.
I read a very cool quote from chief designer Gregory Guillaume (Gee-ome) which said: "the Stinger has nothing to do with being first to arrive. This car is all about the journey. it's about passion."
Stinger is a new direction for Kia, taking them into a new market sector. A 5 door, 5 seater fastback style grand Tourer.
It is also their first Rear Wheel Drive car in the UK.

Fine Wine Investing: Amid Market Turmoil Does This Alternative Asset Class Merit Consideration?

Fine Wine Investing: Amid Market Turmoil Does This Alternative Asset Class Merit Consideration?

As the Coronavirus continues to spread rapidly at the time of writing mid this March, the full scale of the risk to the global economy has hit markets with rarely seen violence. The speed of the sell-off in equities and “risky” asset classes has only been matched by the rise in price of safe haven assets such as U.S. government bonds (Treasuries) or gold.
Now cash has suddenly become King and riskier asset classes shunned - at least for now. Who would have thought this just a few months ago? We certainly live in volatile and risky times.

1979 Mercedes 450 SLC Restoration Tribute

1979 Mercedes 450 SLC Restoration Tribute

Michael is a very cool customer. At the tender age of just 24 he is training to become a commercial pilot, smoking around in this oh so cool 1979 Mercedes 450 SLC. This guy has his head screwed on.
A classic 450 SLC Mercedes is certainly not the kind of car you would expect a young guy to be driving. You’d probably expect to see your average 24 year old in some kind of hot hatch, right?
There’s a good reason Michael owns this car but we'll get to that.
