Where to eat as a fine food lover in Turin/North Italy

Location

Culinary delights - fine dining & ice cream - in Italy's fourth largest city

Turin, the destination of a short trip to the nearby northern Italy, undertaken with my husband a short time ago, surprised me extremely positively. Not only is this baroque city an absolute jewel from an urban planning point of view but also a foodie heaven, both for dining obsessives and for ice cream (here of course called gelato) afficionados.

Oman’s far south of Salalah - Coastal bliss off the beaten track

Location

Where to stay in style & what to do on a four-night stay

Salalah, Oman’s second-largest city not very far from the Yemeni border, is quite different from the capital of Muscat. It is much quieter, relatively unspoilt by tourism and boasts some kind of micro-climate. And it is usually not the place you visit on your first visit to Oman as it is best reached by a domestic flight from Muscat. My husband and I did not make it here until our fourth stay in the Sultanate but were glad that we finally did it!
