When the train was first invented, it was considered an incredible breakthrough, an invention that was about to change the lives of millions around the world and boost the economy in an unpreceded manner. Even if many things changed since the first trains took passengers from one destination to another, burning coal as fuel and puffing columns of thick smoke, it is still very exciting to actually see these train models in their natural size and full splendor. This is possible if you choose to visit the Train World Museum in Brussels, Belgium. I had this objective in my agenda and I am more than happy that I chose to do so. Thus, in the following lines, I will share the impressions I got during my visit to the museum.
One of the best parts about this museum is that it dedicates its entire space for exhibiting trains and other important elements of the railway world. So it isn’t just another museum that will display one or two trains together with other types of exhibits. This is why, even if it is just for a short period, you will submerge is another world, the world of old trains and how everything in this domain started. I loved to see how trains made the passage from steam to electrical power, as new technological solutions were found by people with a vision and passion for development. I also found out more about the history of trains and railway lines, how the first emerged and how they transformed as time passed by. I was pleasantly surprised to see that besides displaying the outside of the trains, the Train World Museum also gives people the chance to see the inside of the trains, as they used to be back in their glory days. This is definitely not something you can see in other train and railway museums.
While walking around the museum, I realized that the train was extremely important a couple of centuries ago, when cars were unavailable or were just a luxury reserved for the wealthiest. In fact, trains were much faster than any car of the time, so it was the best transportation mean if you wanted to reach a destination fast and comfortable. Of course, trains were used not just for the transportation of passengers, but also for various goods, packages, and even mail. Yes, due to the existence of trains, letters managed to reach their destination in a much shorter time than by any other travel mean.
Another surprise was the fact that the museum was not just about the past of trains, as it also looks toward the future as well. So, at the end of the visit, I had the chance to try a high-speed train simulator. In other words, I sat in what could be the train of the future, sitting in a comfortable armchair and seeing how the train speeds up with the help of a high-tech screen. As an adult, the technology amazed me, but I also felt like a child, doing something exciting for the first time and having the chance to picture how the future may look years from now. Besides this experience, I could see the noses of modern locomotives in real size, which made everything even more authentic. All in all, I lived interesting moments at the Train World Museum in Brussels and I recommend visiting this museum, as you won’t find anything like it anywhere else.

The penthouse is presented in turnkey condition.

Ander Mugica Del Campo, the Assistant Project Manager of the Larvotto Penthouse, comments on the alluring new home:
“From the first visit to the apartment, we realised the property had enormous potential. Having the opportunity to completely transform a space to revive its splendour is a challenge that requires effort, time and savoir-faire, but the end result has made it an extremely gratifying experience.

Property in Monaco is among the most distinguished in the world. In 2017, it was reported, according to Savills, Spotlight Monaco 2017, that there has been a compound average annual price growth of 10.9% since 2006. Over the last 10 years, Monaco’s average property price has increased by 180%. In the same report, property in Monaco’s Larvotto was said to have the highest average resale price of the entire Principality. With a shortage of new properties for sale and an exceptionally high demand, an investment in Monaco property is a wise one.

I recently went on a trip to Greece as part of my luxurious travel experiences and I stayed at the Daios Luxury Living Boutique Hotel, right in the center of Thessaloniki and about 12 km away from the international airport.
It is one of the best boutique hotels you will find in northern Greece, ideal for both luxury and business travelers. I had a fantastic time at the hotel and sharing my experience is the next best thing to do. The hotel is located at the seafront and is surrounded by many of Thessaloniki’s points of attraction.
On approaching the hotel, I was impressed by its majestic appearance, due to the large glass walls that make it look like a gem. The obviously modern design stood out in Thessaloniki’s landscape and I had to give credit to the architects who designed it, as they could not have picked a more intriguing design.
From the first moment I entered the lobby of the hotel, the welcoming atmosphere caught my attention. The lobby was designed and built in a way that gives visitors a hint of the luxury that awaits them- it is subtle sophistication at its best. The bar and the wooden floors, the fireplace with the front made of glass, stainless-steel structures and grey velvet sofas, all contribute to the modern feel of the lobby. The welcoming ambience of the hotel is further accentuated by the plush furnishing and the play of lights on the polished floors.
The suites boast of a charming, stylish, well-furnished bedroom and sitting area, while you can actually enjoy the sea view from every part of it. The living room is exquisitely furnished, tastefully decorated, and designed with tones that are meant to make the guest feel welcomed and relaxed, just like at home.
The suites would be great for both the business traveler and the tourist; There is a work table facing the window, which provides a fantastic view of the sea. The room enjoys plenty of natural light, through its generous windows, plus the beautiful works of art that compose its décor gave it an elegant character. The interior design and furnishing are contemporary Italian style and the bathrooms are not left out; the walls are lined with teak wood, polished marble and stone. When the exclusive Apivita and Bulgari Bath amenities are added to the mix, the feel of luxury is complete indeed.
I had heard about the hotel’s restaurants and so, I proceeded to have breakfast at the Vitrina Restaurant. I was treated to an amazing American buffet breakfast and I got to savour the exceptional services provided by the restaurant. In the evening, I made my way to the Daios Bar Restaurant known for the Mediterranean cuisine and the dishes that are prepared with an extra dose of the chef’s creativity and served with high quality wines that complete the circle of luxury you started out with. The ambience of the restaurant exudes quiet charm and sophistication, and when the sunset reflects on the sea in the evening the view from the restaurant is second to none.
In addition to its very many attributes, the Daios Luxury Living also offers laudable guest services, the staff is discreet, courteous, and always helpful, plus the twice–a-day room service is top-notch. There are several other services available such as a personal chef, helicopter charter, in-house massage treatments, and so on. Some of these additional services come at an extra fee but the experience trumps the cost. I did not get to experience everything the Daios Luxury Living had to offer, but I will definitely be back soon to have the complete package.
The natural beauty of the Thermaikos gulf creates memories that will not be forgotten anytime soon and the Daios Luxury Living is right there to make it even more so. I had an amazing time at the Daios Luxury Living Boutique Hotel and it is definitely one of the top places on my list for a luxury vacation.

Monaco is an amazing city, where luxury and wealth always felt at home. Blessed with an incredible location and a fruitful economy, Monaco is like a magnet to rich people that wish to enjoy a great life. When you reach Monaco, the first thing that will impress you is a large number of yachts docked along the city’s shoreline. Yes, instead of cars, the residents of Monaco, both the permanent and temporary ones, love enjoying the excitement of driving a yacht. Thus, it felt only normal and natural for Monaco to host an impressive yacht show on its premises. The Monaco Yacht Show took place on the 27th of September and I was there to enjoy it. Now, in the following lines, I will share my amazing experience with you.
When it comes to top-notch sailing ships, the Monaco Yacht Show is the most important event of its kind in the world. The event manages to gather some of the most prominent players in this domain, like manufacturers that take the opportunity to display their latest models and prototypes, plus yacht owners that have real jewelry, something they’re proud of, also have the chance to show the world their impressive boat. So, all these in mind, I couldn’t miss the chance of being there and feast my eyes with these beauties. And I am very grateful for doing so because I had the chance to see the most impressive yachts in the world, plus a number of toys that the wealthy enjoy using on their spare time.
Just imagine being in a parking lot filled with expensive cars, only that at the Monaco Yacht Show, the cars were replaced by breathtaking yachts. This is how I felt once I reached the location of the event. But, there was something, in particular, I wanted to see here, the crown jewel of the stunning collection displayed at the show, and that was.
The Legend, a yacht that won the most prestigious award in its category this year. The idea of being there and seeing this amazing machine was extremely exciting. Being created to serve as an exploration vessel that had to help researchers in their studies of our planet, she is incredibly sturdy and capable of enduring any conditions, including the need to break the icy waters of the poles. But, on the inside, she can leave you speechless, providing luxury, comfort, and everything you need for an unforgettable voyage. The Legend is the perfect mix between high-end technology, high-quality finishing touches, and an increased practical sense, as she was made to explore and not just to be a beautiful yacht.
As mentioned before, the Monaco Yacht Show is not just about yachts. There were several areas that visitors could enjoy, each providing something special, besides the presence of the stunning ships. On the Starboard, for instance, there was a lounge and restaurant that served snacks and fine dishes during the day, while in the evening everybody had the chance to enjoy a glass of something while listening to a piano concert. For the visitors that enjoyed amazing cars just as much as they enjoyed the yachts, the Car Deck was specially made for them. But not just every car was presented at this section, only those that were considered prestigious enough to be part of this outstanding event. And, the premium guests and clients of this show in Monaco also had the chance to take any of these cars for a test drive and not just look at them. What kind of cars did I have the chance to see at the Monaco Yacht Show? As you can imagine, it was the crème de la crème here, as Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, and a few others, sent their most impressive representatives at the event.
Of course, I cannot disregard the Tenders and Toys section of the show. Every luxurious yacht that respects itself and wishes to spoil its passengers will have a part dedicated to toys. What do toys mean? It means that the yacht owners can take along their ski-jets, paddle boats, and other toys that provide relaxing or adventurous water sports. You see, the idea of owning a yacht is to sail on water as a mean of pleasantly spend your free time, which also means to take advantage of the vast water surface and enjoy any of the water sports that may appeal in your case. Several tenders that represented this niche of entertainment were present at the show, allowing visitors and potential clients to check their offers and choose the tender that suits their needs in the best way possible. But, no matter how you put it, this show was about having fun and enjoying life at the highest standards this world has to offer.
Unfortunately, the yacht show of this year is over, so if you want to be part of it, you have the chance to do so next year. The Monaco Yacht Show 2018 is definitely something you need to include in your schedule because the event gets more and more impressive from one year to the other. Even if this event of this year just ended, the organizers already started planning for 2018 and there are rumors that the Monaco Yacht Show 2018 will be a mega yacht show that will definitely exceed your expectancies. I left the show grateful that I was able to attend it, promising myself that I won’t miss the next year’s edition. It is definitely the kind of show you won’t see anywhere else and if you are a yacht enthusiast looking for a brand new toy, this is definitely the place for you. The show is an exhibition created to suit the needs of the pickiest, but also gives people the chance to purchase their dream yachts and everything needed for entertainment at outstanding levels. One thing is for sure if you end up buying one of the yachts here and that is the fact that nobody in the world will have a yacht like yours.
Monaco is known for the luxurious yachts that are parked along its shoreline throughout the year. It is a city that is highly appreciated by the wealthy people of the planet, who come here in search for a corner to relax and enjoy the good life. But, this year, pretty much in the same way it happens every year, Monaco hosted the famous Monaco Yacht Show. The crème de la crème of yachts are presented at this particular event, a display of technology, high performances, luxury, ultimate comfort, and adventure, all provided by these extraordinary man-made machines that are made to glide through the water. I was there and was more than excited to visit the Legend, one of the most stunning yacht in the world, the winner of The World SuperYacht Awards 2017.
The Legend was present at the Monaco event and I must admit that my blood was almost boiling in my veins with anticipation of seeing this gorgeous boat. I wanted to see and experience on my own if everything that was written about this yacht was true. The first time I laid my eyes on this boat, I knew that it was going to surprise me. It was imposing, reliable, and yet elegant and beautiful. It was very hard to believe that this boat was once used for scientific expeditions, helping researchers collect precious data with the purpose of protecting our environment more efficiently. The transformation the Legend went through is simply spectacular. It became a unique yacht for fun and adventure, equipped with the latest technology, finished using the finest materials and respecting the latest trends, and capable of providing entertainment opportunities around the clock.
The best part about the Legend is that you can easily take it on a trip around the world, even in Antarctica. It is the only luxury mega-yacht in the world that can break through the ice, so you’ll be safe traveling in it even in the cold and icy waters of the earth’s poles. It is a world cruiser that was proven to have everything needed to take in such a challenge without a problem, being extremely safe while providing palace-like luxury to its guests. How many people can travel with the Legend at once? Apart from the crew, which can be composed out of a maximum number of 19 people, plus 10 more that can be doctors, environmentalists, expedition leaders, and others, the yacht can accommodate 26 guests without any problems. Are you tempted by this beauty of the seas? Then you should know that this jewel is for sale for anyone that is willing to pay € 46,500,000.
The truth is that the Legend was built to answer to the requests of even the most exigent travelers out there, who really know how to appreciate ultimate luxury and comfort and desire to enjoy unforgettable adventures around the world. Having a 7,640nm range, certified Heli-pad and an ice-breaking hull, there’s nothing that will stop this yacht from exploring even the most remote corners of the planet’s oceans. And traveling aboard will be anything but boring, having in mind that you’ll have a spa, gym, sauna, Jacuzzi, beauty salon, cinema, swimming pool, and a place to take along your favorite toys, such as paddle boats or scooters, at your disposal around the clock. For me, it was a real pleasure to be able to see it for real and visit it, and I can only imagine the adventures its owner will have, once the Legend will be finally purchased.
The Hotel Principe di Savoia, fondly called The Principe, was founded in 1927 and is located in Milan, the major financial centre in Italy. The Principe’s commanding and neo-classic elegance adds even more beauty to the Piazza della Repubblica and it has been the destination of choice for business men, international travellers and people with a taste for high quality. Since the 1920s, the exceptional service delivery and the wonderful facilities at the hotel has made it the choice of several celebrities like Erich Maria Remarque, Edward VIII, Maria Callas, Madonna, David Beckham and several others.
The Hotel Principe di Savoia has ten floors of 301 rooms, comprising of 257 rooms and 44 suites and it has been said that in order to have a complete experience of the spirit of Milan, one had to stay at The Principe. Being one of the hotels in the Dorchester Collection, a group of luxury hotels that are known for their exceptional service, it did not seem far-fetched that the Principe would live up to its name, but I had to find out if there was any truth to this statement.
On arrival, the hospitable and well- trained staff took my luggage and I checked in. You already have a hint of the luxury that lies within the hotel from the entrance; the stained-glass ceiling and the chandeliers and mosaics did the building contributed to the ambience. The lobby of the hotel featured archetypal Italian decor and classic art deco statues, décor and furniture, which was the same in every part of the building. In addition, the Il Salotto new lobby lounge by Thierry Despont is furnished with exquisite pieces, classical paintings and serves as a meeting point for the guests and the Milanese as well.
The rooms at the Principe were meticulously designed and elegantly furnished to reflect the high level of luxury and comfort that the Dorchester Collection hotels are known for. The signature suites include the four Imperial Suites, the Royal suite, Presidential Suite, and the Principe Suites.
The 500 square meter Presidential Suite boasts of three luxury bedrooms, well-furnished living room, a private swimming pool, and spectacular views as well as other amenities that make it the best thing in Italian hotels. I stayed in the junior ambassador suite which provided me the opportunity to experience and incomparable taste of Milanese luxury.
The junior ambassador suite is decorated with hand painted frescoes, and the warm ambience of the suite is further accentuated by floor-lamps and exquisite Italian furnishing. The expansive marble bathroom is equipped with rain shower, a luxury bath, and complimentary products from Aqua di Parma. The suite also has a nice cosy salon, two separate refined wardrobes and other facilities like an interactive LCD television and ultra-fast Wi-Fi internet access.
The hotel is centrally located which made it easy for me to discover and explore several sights and sounds in Milan. My stay at The Principe was made more memorable by the level of service delivered by the staff. The efficient and smiling staff were very helpful and discreet, attending to my needs upon request. In addition, the hotel offers complimentary luxury limousine service with a chauffeur at hand, to convey me to the Scala and the luxury fashion areas.
I had a delightful breakfast of multi fresh fruit squeeze juice, wonderful scrambled eggs made by the chef and served at the table. The jam brioche is absolutely the best in all of Milan and the food was creatively presented in a beautiful plate accompanied with intricately designed cutlery sets. The breakfast menu includes a wide range of choices such as Savoia, Wellness, Continental and à la Carte. The menu is innovative and also caters for vegans, children and even has the option of having your food packed as take-away.
In a search for something lighter, I explored the great Aperivo at the Il Salotto lobby bar where I enjoyed the spriz, finger food and fresh fruit juice coktail. Il Salotto Bar offers a great selection of cocktails and good music in the evenings. The bar is well-lighted and the several decorative pieces in the room further contributes to the sense of “being in the right place” to have a wonderful time.
As a fitting end to a great day in Milan, I stopped by at the Club 10 fitness and Beauty centre which is open from 6am to 10pm every day. Located at the top of the hotel, has a spa with steamed bath and sauna, Jacuzzi, and a heated swimming pool. The Club 10 offers a wide range of exclusive treatments for patrons to choose from. I had a great experience and left the Club 10 feeling very relaxed and rejuvenated.
My stay in Milan ended on a high note and I can confidently state that without the Principe di Savoia, Milano will not be Milano.
One of the setbacks experienced by travelers usually revolves around finding flight deals that suit their taste and come at reasonable prices. For travelers with a higher taste for traveling in style, using a private jet affords them the opportunity to have the true luxurious travel experience. There are a number of private jet charter services but using them comes with additional charges such as broker fees, and this leads to an increase in price and sometimes makes the booking system tedious.
Charterscanner was founded to address these challenges and offer both service providers and users an improved private jet booking experience. The founders, Vladislav Zenov and Wagas Ali, an aviation guru and a technology entrepreneur, respectively, founded Charterscanner with the vision of unifying and improving the quality of service gotten from the private aviation industry.
It is best described as an innovative solution for private jet charter that is transparent and simple, operating on a zero-commission and broker-free system.
What are the advantages of Charterscanner ?
Bridging the gap between Private Jet operators and their clients
Charterscanner functions without agents and brokers; thus making it possible for clients to relate directly with the private jet operator and vice versa. And, it is the only private jet booking system with this feature. The booking system and app is free to use, and clients can get their flight quotes directly from the operator, without having to pay any commission in addition to the cost of the flight.
Provides clients with greater power to choose
Charterscanner currently provides flight quotes from over 300 operators and 3,500 private aircrafts, and more services are being added. This means that clients have access to information with which to make the best choice that suits their distinct needs. With Charterscanner, the client is able to view several competing prices at their convenience.

Charterscanner ensures the privacy of all clients are maintained at the highest levels possible.

With Charterscanner, there are no commissions or transaction fees unlike other private jet charter services. This ensures that clients have access to the direct and actual prices of flights. The booking process has never been this transparent!
AN EASY TO USE BOOKING SYSTEM:
The Charterscanner interface is very easy to navigate and involves the following steps:
1. Client requests quotes
2. The request is automatically relayed to several operators, but the client’s details are withheld.
3. Operators provide results; this takes less than 10 minutes.
4. Clients make their choice and book.
Alternatively, clients can also go through Charterscanner’s interface to book directly with the operator, at no extra cost.
Also, clients can use Charterscanner Assist to book their flights. This service is provided to clients to help them have more personalized travel experiences at an extra cost: If a charter is less than €10,000, the charge would be €350 and it would cost €490 if the charter exceeds €10,000.
All requests, quotes, are supervised by professional customer care personnel who also provides support throughout the booking and flight confirmation process.
With this innovative solution, the private jet reservation process just got a whole lot easier. Clients would get better prices and operators will have the chance to reach an international client base and also have reduced marketing costs.
According to Vladislav Zenov, the CEO and Co-Founder of Charterscanner, “Charterscanner represents the new generation in private jet charter. Our service connects operators with passengers like never before, removing hidden costs, convoluted booking processes, and inflexible services.”
