Although it has been overshadowed by the Rioja, the region around the Douro River (before it crosses the border of Portugal to become the Duoro) produces the favorites of wine lovers like Protos – in a winery designed by Richard Rogers-, as well as Arzuaga, among many other wines. The region, which is easily reached by the city of Valladolid, an hour north of Madrid on the high-speed train, offers what for many is one of the most refined hotels in Spain, the Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine. You can also visit the wine museum in Peñafiel Castle and the National Sculpture Museum, which is like the Prado Museum of Spanish sculpture

 

Dozens of monuments in Montgomery show off the Confederate States of the United States. But, from April, there will be a new monument to commemorate the victims of slavery and prejudice.

Another 800 columns, dedicated to the counties where there were lynchings, will be located in an adjacent garden until they are claimed and erected in those counties.

 

All flights from its main airport in Bolzano, the capital of the German-speaking autonomous region of South Tyrol and where much of the Italian mountain range of the Dolomites lies, were canceled in 2015, as a survey was conducted public about the convenience of keeping the airport active. Instead of mourning the loss of tourism, the Tyroleans took advantage of the clear skies and the fewer tourists to become a destination of well-being. Among its new hotels are the Seehof Nature Retreat, a group of villas and saunas around a lake flanked by apple trees; the Montchalet hotel in Ortisei with floating meditation beds; consummate properties such as the hotel Alpenroyal, on the well-known mountaineering path Via Ferrata, improved its facilities by adding an area of ??500 square meters for wellness, with an aromatic sauna filled with hay, a herbal steam room and a thermal bath. At the end of 2017, the Alto Adige Vitivinicultural Summit was also inaugurated, which emphasizes little-known local wine varietals.

 

The avant-garde and creative Bristol wants to be known with another adjective in 2018: cultural power. The oldest theater in the United Kingdom, the Bristol Old Vic, will open a studio theater with 188 seats, while the Bristol St. George concert hall will be a modern extension. Being Brunel, a new museum that celebrates the engineering genius Isambard Kindgom Brunel, will open its doors next to his masterpiece, the transatlantic SS Great Britain.

The charms of this peninsular city, at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, are best enjoyed by bicycle. Make a donation to Buddhist monks in saffron colored tunics early in the morning and then discover the countless wats (temples) of golden roofs or take a walk to the nearby waterfalls. Why so early? To get there before the crowds. There are new resorts, such as Rosewood and Sofitel, as well as the most affordable luxury brand Azerai, plus new air connections from major Asian cities, along with a planned Chinese train connection, which will make it easier to reach all of these destinations.
