Bella Cucina

It cannot be translated to a single word rather, hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”) is a Danish philosophy or way of life. It encompasses a feeling of well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. The cozy contentment of being nestled around the fireside in the company of good friends or gathered around the table to share a home-cooked meal. It’s a slower pace of life that is perfect for these wintery days.

Japan is one of the most popular holiday destinations on the planet – especially among younger travellers. Japan may not be as geographically big as some of its rivals, but it packs a real wealth of scenes between its shores.

Top of the Line: BMW X7 50i

As large SUVs in the luxury segment go, BMW has come rather late to the party. However, the marque’s new entry—the long-awaited X7—is going to be a mighty competitor in a field that was previously owned by Land Rover, Cadillac’s Escalade and, more lately, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

But First, Brunch!
