Norwegian Nights – how the Arctic light delineates the world...

By Alfred Stallion The surreal light of the Arctic is stunning from a distance. It almost seems like it outlines the world with its crystal-clear clarity and pure sheerness. The rugged, sharp mountains complement the blue sky perfectly; and the green shades of the slopes and small boats coming into the harbor craft the most interesting scenery. Norway, a wild territory only the most adventurous dare to explore, is a thing of beauty. Those looking to try out something different this season and get out of their comfort zones should definitely give it a try. The natural attractions abound and activities will make sure that your holiday becomes a memorable experience. The fjords Norway is famous for its rugged, unexplored fjords. The natural reserves are packed with abundant vegetation and memorable scenery. Dramatic yet extremely calm, this experience will exceed all your expectations. To believe that the landscapes are so incredible, you need to be here. The most spectacular fjords are located in Western Norway. Onsite, travelers will be delighted with several additional wonders such as never-ending cascades and waterfalls, breathtaking glaciers, exciting food made by the locals and spectacular architecture. In Western Norway the fauna dominates the flora. On your itinerary you should see lots of eagles, whales, and seals populating the waters. There’s something for everyone here, including big cities, desolate hiking spots, traditional villages and more. In the summer, many regions are fertile. The locals grow their own crops with fruit and they go fishing and hunting for meat. That’s probably one of the main reasons the Norwegian dishes are so delicious. Geirangerfjord is a must-see. The fairytale-like fjord is surrounded by snow-peaks, majestic waterfalls and lush green vegetation. All around the place you’ll stumble upon impressive waterfalls; the formed cascades create a continuous display of rainbows that will just take your breath away. The Northern Light Show Whenever we hear about Norway we immediately think of the Northern Light Show. Is the Aurora Boreas real? Is it that spectacular? The lights seem like they’re giving tourists a glimpse into the heart of the Universe. Scientifically speaking, the phenomenon is rather easy to explain. The beams are in fact collisions between numerous particles that come from the sun; these particles are super charged with energy and as they enter the Earth’s atmosphere they begin to appear in different colors of green, yellow, purple, pink and red. The best time to see the Northern Lights is at night....

How to Upgrade Frozen Cocktails...

Cocktail trends come and go. Some classics such as piña coladas, margaritas and strawberry daiquiris are always on the menu. Santa Margherita is mixing things up this season. When it comes to frozen drinks you’ll typically find tequila, rum and flavored vodka in the recipe. Swap the heavy liquor for a light and bubbly wine like Santa Margherita’s Prosecco Superiore, adding a little sparkle to your drink! Beat the heat with a cool spiked strawberry slushie. The frozen drink trend doesn’t stop there, it’s all about the details. Add popsicles and flavored ice cubes to the mix. Santa Margherita takes it a step further and transforms the crisp and pleasantly fruity wine into iced fruit cubes and yes, adult-friendly “winesicles.” SPIKED STRAWBERRY SLUSHIE: Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore 3 cups of strawberries 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 spring of fresh mint Ice cubes 1 Tablespoon of sugar Stir lemon juice and ½ Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore together, set aside. Combine ice cubes, mint, sugar and strawberries in blender, blend on high until smooth. Pour in lemon and Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore mixture and blend on medium until smooth. Distribute mixture and top each glass with remaining Prosecco. Garnish with strawberry. WINESICLES: Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore Edible flowers Popsicle mold Place 3-5 edible flowers in each popsicle mold and fill it with Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore. Freeze for 4-6 hours, or until completely solid. Once frozen, remove mold and garnish popsicle sticks with ribbon FESTIVE FRUIT CUBES: Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore Assorted sliced fruit Fill ice cube trays with sliced fruit. Carefully pour Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore over the fruit to fill tray.

TASMANIAN PRIDE: PREMIUM TASSIE GIFTS FOR ALL OCCASIONS...

Tasmania’s premier bi-lingual (English/Chinese) online shopping portal – TASSIE PURE – has expanded from the world of retail and jumped into the burgeoning business events market, offering a range of premium gifts for discerning corporate clients.   Tired of seeing delegates to the Apple Isle presented with foreign-made, generic and uninspired conference gifts, Tassie Pure has stepped up to provide the MICE sector with a much-needed offering: tailor-made gifts sets featuring 100% Tasmanian products. And there is no shortage of people to cater for, with Tasmania’s business event sector contributing A$132 million to the state’s economy in 2015 and visiting delegate numbers growing steadily, up 42 per cent from the previous year. The high-yield business events market is just part of a general tourism boom that is seeing Tassie invest heavily in infrastructure, from a Hobart airport expansion and wharf re-development to Cradle Mountain upgrade and state-wide expansion of meeting, incentive, conference and event (MICE) facilities. Tassie Pure is able to cater from 2-2,000 orders and adapt to any desired specification, be it gluten-free sweets, lavender themed or other. Some of the items on offer are pillow gift, delegate satchel, presenter present, goodie bag, party prize, small keepsake and gourmet pack. Knowing well that conference guests are usually not swayed by elaborate packaging but more by quality and size (luggage space being at a premium), and in-line with the company’s own views on environmental conservation, Tassie Pure utilises an exclusive range of eco-packaging, in particular recycled paper bags and biodegradable boxes. In close collaboration with 50 local Tasmanian producers, Tassie Pure has on offer over 300 locally made items, in particular organic and handmade ones. In the food category alone, that’s everything from leatherwood honey, cherry jam, wasabi, fudge and saffron to sea salt, truffles, olive oil and shortbread. Beyond gourmet food, the categories of beauty, wellness and lifestyle feature Huon Pine, merino wool, body lotion, candles, books, essential oils, jewellery, herbal tea, bath salts, soap, stationary, hand creams and more. Tassie Pure is in partnership with many respected and award-winning luxury local brands, such as Tailored Tasmania, Wellington Apiary, Fudge A’Fare, 41° South, Merino Wild, Tamar Valley Truffles, Lean-To Kitchen, Port Arthur Lavender, Tasman Sea Salt, Tasmanian Gourmet Sauce Company, Tas-Saff, Hillwood Berry Farm, Red Kellys and Embalm Skincare. Not content to only service the business sector – conferences, meetings, seminars, trade show, staff parties, team buildings – Tassie Pure is also positioning itself to be the go-to vendor...

Three Good Reasons Why You Should Engage an SEO Professional...

By Carolyn Weiss  Because small businesses are almost always stretched for money, very often the job of administering the website is clubbed together with many other duties of the owner-entrepreneur. Consequently, SEO often gets a step-motherly treatment. While the success of the business is not likely to depend entirely on the effectiveness of SEO, there can be no debate on the fact that it does play a vital role in giving you a competitive advantage. This is the main reason why your small business should have a robust SEO strategy designed, and a competent SEO manager to implement it perfectly. Irrespective of the time of the year this realization of the requirement of effective SEO sinks in, it is never too late to employ an SEO professional to increase your return on investment by increasing site traffic, authority, and visibility. Search engine optimization remains essential despite the huge advancements made in search engine technology because search engines still are not in a position to figure out the importance and relevance of websites to the same extent as human beings. Through the implementation of SEO, search engines’ job of identifying and understanding what each webpage is all about and their ability to satisfy user queries is considerably made easier.Some solid reasons why hiring a manager dedicated to SEO could very well be your best business decision ever: Confirmed Experience For a small business that is attempting to make its presence felt in the online environment, the road to success is paved with many a pothole. The competition for attention in the cyber world is perhaps at its fiercest, and it is no longer viable to just have a website. To establish a web presence that is of any account, you need to look at SEO managers who are young and dynamic enough to work in a small business environment and take on the huge responsibility of getting adequate momentum for the site without costing a bomb. Ideally, he would have undertaken offline or online SEO training, and have at least three years or more of website development or SEO experience, either working for agencies or for clients. If he has hands-on experience, you can be much more confident that he would have the necessary skills that your business needs at this stage of its lifecycle. If he has a track record of working with clients in various sectors, it will be an advantage as he would be able to extrapolate his...

Some things to consider when you want to a rent house overseas...

Sometimes your job or business will require you to reside in another country for some time. It may be because you want to open a new branch of your business in that nation, or you got a transfer from your place of employment to another branch for some time. It can be quite hectic to move house to a new neighborhood, even in your home country; it is not necessarily easier when it comes to a foreign country. It is a new environment, a new climate and interacting with new cultures. It is important that you carefully choose where to reside, to live in a place that you can adapt to conveniently and easily. You shouldn’t reside in a location you don’t like, even if it is for a short period, it is not worth the struggle. In most countries, renting an apartment or a house is not a stressful process, it is common that you will be asked to sign a lease, for at least six months and you will give a security deposit to the property owner. Here are some tips to make renting a house in a foreign state, a very easy process: Begin your search at home. Before you even leave your home country, you can start your search by using the internet and other books. Most big companies that offer property management services as well as recognized real estate agents will have a domain on the internet. You can visit these websites to see comprehensive catalogues and listings, of apartments or condominiums the companies are offering and in what areas. This will give you a good advantage to be able to see the kind of housing that is offered in the area you want to reside in. This will help you save a lot of time physically looking around, through the internet, you can short list certain offers that you may be interested in and can contact the appropriate person. Do not send money when you haven’t seen the property. Seeing attractive pictures of the property online, shouldn’t give you enough reason to send money, although you haven’t seen the property physically. This might mean, that you will have to stay in a hotel for the immediate days after you arrive in the foreign country, but it is a safer investment, compared to sending all your saved money, just to realize the penthouse you paid for is nothing like the pictures. You can reach...

12 Essential Italian Words for Foodies!...

By Alma Beatrice If you are reading this article, chances are you too are a lover of Italian food and you will certainly have come across lots of interesting Italian terms whilst perusing recipes, food blogs or menus in your favourite restaurants. We’ve compiled a useful list of the vocabulary we think you absolutely need to know – you may be familiar with some of it already are but we are sure that not all of you know exactly how to cook your pasta ‘al dente’, what do do with your ‘acqua di cottura’ or exactly what’s in your ‘Arrabbiata’! 1) Al dente This term indicates the level of cooking your pasta should have AT ALL TIMES. Italians eat their pasta only when its cooked to perfection and this means it must have that firm bite to it otherwise something definitely went wrong! Al dente literally translates as: To the tooth, which indicates the concept that the pasta must be not too soft but slightly chewy when biting it. A little secret to perfect al dente pasta is to cook it at least one minute less than indicated on the packet. This will not work with every kind and brand of pasta as some have very strange cooking times that vary accordingly to a series of external factors. Nevertheless, this rule works with most of the pasta brands that are sold around the UK. Another wise move would be to try the pasta 4 minutes before cooking time is up and then again after 2 minutes. This way you will know exactly when to drain it from the water to create a proper pasta plate! Finally, always remember to throw the pasta in to cook only when the water is on full boil. 2) All’Arrabbiata This is a much-loved type of pasta sauce that you’ll find on most Italian menus. It’s so hot and spicy it’s actually angry! (the literal meaning of arrabbiata). Arrabbiata sauce is usually made with tomatoes, olive oil and peperoncino: three simple ingredients to give one amazing experience. 3) Antipasto This is what Italians eat before their main course and literally means ‘before the meal’. It often consists of a tempting selection of cheeses with accompaniments, assorted bruschettas, vegetables in oil, small bites of fried delicacies and maybe a platter of cold cuts. Sometimes, if a restaurant has amazing antipasti, the Italians will order only those with a crisp glass of white wine. 4) Bruschetta Bruschetta...
