Qatar Airways Buys 10 Percent Stake in British Airways Parent IAG

Država bo prispevala vsaj tri milijone za Kanin

Očitno so se začele duševne bolezni širiti iz vzhoda proti zahodu Slovenije… Zakaj le tri milijone?! Zakaj ne raje tri milijarde?! Zakaj šele prihodnjo zimo?! Zakaj ne kar marca?! 😀Žiga Sancin

Skifahren in Livigno – ohne Pisten und ohne Lifte

Mehr als 700 Skigebiete gibt es in den Alpen. Gerade einmal ein Dutzend Orte steht für Heliskiing zur Verfügung, etwa Courmayeur, Val Formazza, Prali, Gressoney (alle Italien), ein Handvoll Schweizer Orte und das österreichische Lech am Arlberg. Seit vergangener Saison nun mischt Livigno (Lombardei) bei der luxuriösesten Form des Skifahrens mit. Auch das gehört zum Projekt Freeride Livigno.Michael Hegenauer (Die Welt)

Interview: Butterfield & Robinson CEO on the Evolution of Active Travel

We find that the millennial generation expects a private, custom experience that is much more focused on them. It’s an interesting shift in how people with money expect to travel. I expect the older generation didn’t have as high of expectations around something being private and custom. They embraced the social engagement and making new friends. That insularity and focus inwards might be a general millennial characteristic.Norman Howe (Butterfield & Robinson)

Explore the World’s Most Morbid Tourist Attractions

The idea was not to go there and spend months there. I wanted to get this immediate feeling of what you see, like the tourists do. I wasn’t shooting what could be seen by a photojournalist or someone with a special permit. It was always quite quick […] I wasn’t trying to make a book of history. I wanted to show it raw, how it really is.Ambroise Tézenas

Alles erleben, aber bloß kein schnöder Tourist sein

Natürlich handelt es sich bei solchen Begegnungen auf organisierten Reisen vor allem um eine Inszenierung von Authentizität.

What It’s Like Living in the Coldest Town on Earth

Here arctic chill is simply a fact of life, something to be endured. People develop a variety of tricks to survive. Most people use outhouses, because indoor plumbing tends to freeze. Cars are kept in heated garages or, if left outside, left running all the time. Crops don’t grow in the frozen ground, so people have a largely carnivorous diet—reindeer meat, raw flesh shaved from frozen fish, and ice cubes of horse blood with macaroni are a few local delicacies.Jenna Garrett (Wired)

Cruise ships a haven for sexual activity but many don’t sell condoms
