Why New York is a great winter destination – just wrap up warmly

When I visited New York in December, I admit that despite thermals and layers, I was freezing. The cold temperatures – sometimes reaching lows of -2°C – were further blighted by biting Arctic winds.

Best ski gear for beginner skiers

Surrounded by three-year-olds swish-swooshing around me with the ease and elegance of seasoned skiers, I was desperately struggling not to fall while my ski instructor was yelling “bend your knees”.

Could solar powered planes be the future for air travel?

When the young Icarus in Greek mythology flew too close to the sun, the wax on his wings melted, the feathers fell away and within minutes he could no longer fly. I wonder what he would be thinking now if he had witnessed two Swiss pilots not only using the power of the sun toRead More
