McLaren 720S Supercar Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Côte d'Opale Tour

McLaren 720S Supercar Review & Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Côte d'Opale Tour

To get to know a car, you really need to live with it on tour. So where better to take the McLaren 720S than to northern France along the amazing coastal roads, smooth as silk autoroutes and picturesque country lanes?

It came delivered in a box to the door, in a fetching but discreet Sarthe Grey, almost as if it did not want to be noticed. Paradoxically it showed off the lines magnificently, reflecting every hue and dapple of the morning light in the sublime bodywork. Unboxing such beauty as the McLaren 720S is like all your Christmases at once.

Ozen By Atmosphere At Maadhoo Island Maldives: Picture Perfect Paradise with Butler-Part 1

Ozen By Atmosphere At Maadhoo Island Maldives: Picture Perfect Paradise with Butler-Part 1

Lunch at The House Lounge at Heathrow was the perfect way to start our trip to Ozen By Atmosphere At Maadhoo Island in the Maldives. We had wisely picked our flight times to make the trip as comfortable as possible and to get the maximum time in the Maldives. The outbound flight to Male with Qatar Airways was at 15.05 with a 55-minute stopover in Doha. This meant we would arrive at 9.00 in the morning at Male and have the whole day to get over the jet lag and get acclimatised.

Villa Rosa Kefalonia Greece

Southern Shores Of Kefalonia Greece

Within two weeks I was back! This time to the southern half, beneath her mountainous ridge, her bays of golden sand and her view of the neighbouring island of Zante.
The water is family-friendly as it slopes gradually to its depths under a smooth flooring of sand. The vivid colours of the blue sky, the Cézanne-style white rocks and brown earth all protrude in sharp, pronounced definition.

Rolls Royce Dawn at Château de Montmélian

Rolls Royce Dawn Luxury Tour Of French Chateaux

The Rolls Royce Dawn two-door convertible in Powder Blue is sleek, attractive and comfortable. The ideal car for a luxury tour of the Loire Valley, via Paris and Fontainebleau.

Rolls Royce are shedding their chauffeur-driven image, producing luxury tourers that are comfortable on long journeys. So I decided to test it with a thousand-mile plus drive across to France.

Everything was planned at the last minute as Covid restrictions in the UK were bouncing up and down faster than a bumbling Prime Minister caught on a zip wire.

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.
