Schloss Elmau

Geoffrey Weill Associates has been appointed US public relations representative of Schloss Elmau, a breathtaking spa and cultural resort in the Bavarian Alps. Once characterized as “an Aman resort on steroids,” Schloss Elmau is a member of Leading Hotels of the World and is arguably both the most luxurious spa resort in Germany and one of the most unusual resort hotels in the world. 

“Schloss Elmau is everything you wouldn’t expect when you hear the words ‘resort in Bavaria,'” says Geoffrey Weill, “there are no thatched roofs, no flower-filled window-boxes, no lederhosen, no Alpine cutesiness. Instead, you discover a world-class combination of Jugendstil and post-modern architecture, utter luxury, total understatement and casualness, extraordinary food, a cultural program that could shame many of the world’s most sophisticated cities — a paradise for families and couples, all set high in the Alps with a view of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain.”

Schloss Elmau is separated into two wings, a five-minute stroll apart. The original “Schloss” combines its original Jugendstil architecture with awe-inspiring 21st-century details. It contains 115 rooms and suites, five restaurants (one with a Michelin star), a kids’ club, the largest bookstore in any hotel in Germany, and the original concert hall. The “Retreat” opened in 2015 with 47 spacious suites, three restaurants and a gym and yoga pavilion. All told, Schloss Elmau has six separate and lavish spas, some for families, others for adults only, including one discreetly sited for nude bathing and sunbathing. Outdoor pools are heated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. There are year-round programs for children and teens, and copious opportunities for hiking, tennis and skiing.

The ambiance of Schloss Elmau separates it from every other spa resort not only in Germany, but in most of Europe. There is never a dress code, children are welcomed, and there is not a breath of enforced formality. Guests can relax in spacious lounges and order Dom Perignon and foie gras and, at the next table, their kids can play battleships and munch hot dogs. The goal is to provide guests with a carefree stay in an atmosphere of health, fitness, learning and cultural enrichment, with some 200 concerts and talks scheduled throughout the year. In 2015, the G7 met at Schloss Elmau with the participation of US President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President François Hollande and British Prime Minister David Cameron.

The original Schloss was opened in 1916 as a cultural retreat by Dr. Johannes Müller (1864-1949), a renowned Protestant theologian and philosopher and has a rich and complex history. Today, the resort is owned and overseen by his grandson: entrepreneur, visionary and hotelier, Dietmar Mueller-Elmau.

Schloss Elmau is a sister hotel to the Hotel Orania.Berlin, a 21st-century hotel set in an art-nouveau landmark building in the hip Berlin neighborhood of Kreuzberg.

New Chapter of WeRace Comic

We Race Comic – Episode 1: the future of racing is here

Transformation is part of history. Mankind is looking to the future. In the race towards tomorrow, the biggest challenge is to find one’s role in an ever- changing world.

It’s 2095. The introduction of the self-driving car has revolutionised the world of racing, but the debut of a new team is fraught with difficulty as it deals with demanding circuits, extreme race conditions and cars out of the pages of a science fiction story…Formula Warp is an unforgettable experience, pushing beyond the limits of human endeavour.

About We Race Comic

Scuderia Ferrari has produced the We Race Comic in collaboration with Giulio Gualtieri, a screenwriter and editor in chief who has worked on many major projects. The We Race Comic comic strip stems from a combination of passion for racing and the world of comics.

In the possibly not too far off future, it tells the story of a passion that spans several eras, without being bound by any limits: because the world can change, but feelings remain the same.

Wild Women Expeditions

Wild Women Expeditions’ Jennifer Haddow Addresses Changing Priorities Of Women-Only Travel Clients.

Corner Brook, NL, CANADA – The company that is blazing new trails for women-only travel keeps a close eye on the changing priorities of its female clientele.

“Their priorities increasingly are valued-based,” observes Jennifer Haddow, owner and visionary director of Wild Women Expeditions. “Women want more meaningful adventures and are more conscious of how and where they spend their vacation time and money. Yes, they still want to enjoy precious time away from their routines to impact themselves, but their concerns extend to a broader community.”

Following are trends Haddow has witnessed over the past few years.

Shaking things up: transformational travel. Says Haddow: “When women sign up for one of our trips ‘transformation’ isn’t on the tips of their tongues. But to choose to spend a week kayaking, hiking and no-frills camping usually means they’re on a quest of some kind, whether they know it or not. On a daily basis they test their own comfort zones by meeting one challenge after another. They learn to listen to and trust each other, creating community. Community – that many lack in their lives – becomes the gateway to learning new skills that can lead to empowerment and transformation.”

360, 360 Magazine, Vaughn Lowery, Wild women expeditions

Inner healing journeys: wilderness therapy. Says Haddow: “With few exceptions, Wild Women Expeditions’ itineraries place women in wilderness settings with only occasional brushes with society and culture. There are abundant studies on the benefits of forest therapy. One of our programs takes women back in time to spaces inside themselves they’ve never before inhabited. Under the guidance of First Nation female leaders, they hear stories of women as fire carriers, medicine women and knowledge keepers and for a short while immerse themselves in traditional plant medicine, archery, equestrian skills, sacred earth walks and indigenous living skills. Another program honors Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit as only a bare-bones wilderness immersion can accomplish.”

Yoga-themed vacations: out-of-the-box yoga. Says Haddow: “Yoga is a cultural force spilling out of yoga studios and into yoga-themed vacations where practitioners can carry on in exotic settings at luxury retreat centers. We take yoga one step further than a terrace or beachfront vista and integrate yoga with other activities for truly immersive experiences. On our yoga themed wilderness trips, we take yoga out of the box and let women feel the elements as they discover their own power and wellbeing.”

360, 360 Magazine, Vaughn Lowery, Wild women expeditions

Comfort in the wilderness: going glamping. Says Haddow: “Women May have a desire to go glamping — but with conditions. We meet women half way. Some don’t have the physical ability to do a multi-day backpacking and camping experience. In Patagonia our version of glamping for women with back issues is to give them proper beds but still with enough exposure to the elements so they feel part of the wilderness experience. Our journeys are not survival trips but rather about women warming up to their own inherent connection in and with nature. We want to help them make one journey a life-long adventure, helping them make hay connection and following their bliss into the wild. We’re all about women taking little steps to feel confident in their journeys.”

Asking more questions: conservation matters. Says Haddow: “We’re seeing a growing enthusiasm for tourism to be a force of conservation and the protection of wildlife. There’s more support for changing the perceptions of what animals mean to the world. We feel we are helping make a difference by supporting tiger reserves and parks in India and assisting in Indonesia (Borneo) to protect the critically endangered Bornean orangutan. In Thailand a decade ago there was low awareness of the damage done to the elephant population in this country because of tourism, requiring that elephants become beasts of burden under the physical weight of one of the tourist after another riding them. Villagers are re-appreciating elephants in new ways, in part because of the attention and support they receive from our guests. There’s a movement of women asking the right questions when it comes to their travel opportunities. For example: Are the protocols of developing and executing itineraries ethical in terms of impacts on wildlife and benefits to local communities? Plus, there’s the added value of engaging female guides from these countries to lead our women-only trips. Our clients care that local women get more the benefits of tourism.”

PACIFIC DELIGHT TOURS × JEWS × INDIA

JEWS ARRIVED IN INDIA PRIOR TO THE CHANUKAH STORY: EXPLORE INDIA THROUGH JEWISH EYESTM WITH PACIFIC DELIGHT TOURS

Pacific Delight Tours continues its kosher “Jewish eyes” tours in conjunction with the Foundation for Remote Jewish Communities featuring its annual INDIA: My Second Home program, Jan. 16-29, 2019.

Few people know that the pepper found on your kitchen table comes from a pepper exchange in Southern India located in a place called Jewtown. While this label might be deemed offensive in modern Western society, to a 2,000-year-old Jewish community in India, the name Jewtown is a source of pride that honors the long history of Jews in India and the great contributions Jews have made to Indian society.

Tour participants will learn how this isolated Diaspora community has evolved in its own unique way. For example, Jews in India celebrate every Jewish holiday except Chanukah because their society pre-dates Chanukah. This and many more fascinating, little known stories of the Jewish experience in India will be discussed by Prof. Nathan Katz, one of the world’s foremost scholars on Jews in India.

Participants will have opportunities to meet and interact with India’s diverse Jewish communities in Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai and

New Delhi and join Shabbat at the Judah Hyam synagogue in New Delhi as well as at Kenesseth Eliyahoo, also known as the Fort Synagogue, in Mumbai (pictured right), which dates back to 1884. Other historic synagogues include Kolkata’s 19th century Italian Renaissance-style Magen David synagogue and the historic Paradesi synagogue in Jewtown, constructed during the Mughal era in the 16th century.

The program visits the “must-see” sights of India such as the iconic Taj Mahal and Elephanta Caves, cruises Kerala’s scenic backwaters, peddles through Old Delhi and other UNESCO World Heritage sites via rickshaw, and features a private recital featuring traditional Indian music and dance.

India is known for its antiquity and spirituality, its cultural export dubbed “Bollywood”, and its contrast of bustling cities and pristine nature-a fascinating kaleidoscope that is the world’s largest democracy. “What is typically not known is India’s long history as one of the most hospitable homes in the Diaspora, without a trace of anti-Semitism,” said Prof. Katz.

“A Jew, Sarmad Kashani, was the most celebrated patron saint of 17th century Indian poetry. So too, Jews have been among India’s great mystics, taken center stage in Bollywood, served as mayor of major cities, and produced the country’s greatest military hero, General J. F. R. ‘Jack’ Jacob,” explained Prof. Katz.

India My 2nd Home features deluxe hotels such as Mumbai’s five-star Taj Mahal Tower overlooking the Arabian Sea. Other accommodations include the Taj Vivanta Malabar in Kochi, the Oberoi Grand in Kolkata, Taj Mahal Hotel in New Delhi and ITC Mughal Hotel in Agra.

The fully-escorted tour cost is $7,195 per person, based on double occupancy, and includes deluxe accommodations, all intra-India flights and transportation, the services of an English-speaking escort and local guides including acclaimed scholar Prof. Nathan Katz, most meals (kosher or strictly vegetarian) including memorable lunches and dinners with the Jewish communities in India, fascinating sightseeing and excursions, and exclusive cultural events not open to the general public. All gratuities to guides, drivers and hotel staff, as well as hotel taxes and service charges, are included in the package. International airfare, as well as passport and visa fees, are not included.

The tour cost includes a tax-deductible donation of $900 per person to FRJC, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit educational charity that is devoted to preserving and promoting the endangered Jewish communities on the periphery of the Diaspora, including India. Since its inception in 2003, FRJC has distributed more than $1.1 million for Jewish libraries, scholarships, and even sustainable farming projects. Learn more at www.frjc.org

About Prof. Nathan Katz

Prof. Nathan Katz is distinguished Professor, Emeritus, Florida International University where he was director of Jewish Studies and founding director of the Program in the Study of Spirituality. He has written 15 books, including The Last Jews of Cochin and Who Are the Jews of India? A Fulbright scholar who has spent more than eight years in South Asia, Prof. Katz was delegate to the ground-breaking 1990 Tibetan-Jewish dialogue, hosted by the Dalai Lama, which was chronicled in the bestselling book, The Jew in the Lotus.

Wild Women Expeditions

Departures for this brand-new Wild Women Expeditions’ foray into the land of ice and snow are Feb. 23-March 2 and March 9-16, 2019. These dates coincide with prime viewing conditions for the Aurora Borealis. The per person rate of $5,495 includes local female guides, seven nights shared accommodation (a private upgrade is $425) in guest houses and mountain huts, meals, activities-related gear and equipment including snowshoes and poles, ground transportation and drop-off at airport in Reykjavik and all local taxes. See: Website

This time of year the light from a low-lying sun sheds a warm glow for a short eight hours, time enough to strap on snow shoes to stride (hikes average 10km) through volcanic valleys where steaming mud pots, hot rivers and frozen waterfalls await. Over on a glacier, crampon-clad women will explore an ice cave and tunnels with an accomplished glacier guide. One mountain region along the sea displays a multitude of bird species nesting on treacherous cliffs, beaches of sand and pebbles popular among horsemen and rock skimmers, and remnants and relics scattered here and there of times and ways of life long past. Iceland’s unique geology and cultural history come into focus when visiting Thingvellir National Park, home of the country’s seat of power from the 10th to 18th centuries.

Guests meet up in Reykjavik where a walking tour and thermal soak demonstrate how Icelanders enjoy themselves. The itinerary offers daily opportunities to soak in water warmed from the belly of the earth. While lodging in mountain huts, guests help prepare Icelandic meals. But there’s no lingering at the dinner table here, as throughout the day anticipation mounts for the spectacle du jour, the Northern Lights, witnessed in off-the-beaten-track locales where otherwise dark skies preside.

The sojourn calls for people-to-people meet-ups too. At Ullarselið, a center for displaying and selling, staff will show the group the importance that wool plays in this cold clime. In 1994, 50 women from nearby villages worked for 18 days (432 hours) to make the biggest sweater in the world! It is knitted with hand-spun wool; 179 pieces are sewn together with black thread. The sweater has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. (Icelandic sheep, breeding here over 1,000 years, yield white and shades of gray, brown and black wool. The prolific breed carries a gene that can produce sextuplets.)

On a western peninsula where fishing and tourism rule the economy, guests spend time with two female entrepreneurs who set up a slow travel company in the town of Stykkisholmur. They will share first-hand insights into the way of life – yesterday and today, including how and why Icelanders are said to be some of the most well-read people on the planet.

For details, availability and reservations for trips in Iceland as well as all Wild Women Expeditions’ programs call 1 (888) 993-1222, email info@wildwomenexpeditions.com or visit online at Website .

Jaguar, 360 magazine

Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Thursday 14 June 2018, UK: Jose Mourinho surprised a group of schoolchildren with a special lesson before departing for the World Cup.

Mourinho was a secondary school PE teacher for five years before embarking on his record-breaking football management career. He arrived at Bishop Gilpin Church of England Primary School in a Jaguar XF Sportbrake full of brand new football equipment, which he donated to the children as part of an inspiring afternoon in class.

“Inside me there is always a teacher. Coming back to school as a kid; or a teacher brings back a lot of special memories. You create your own identity; and develop your own personality and principles.  It is the period you most enjoy in life.”

Mourinho was confronted by a star-struck group of children, who interrogated him about his favourite school memories, Father’s Day; and the naughtiest players he works with. One cheeky pupil even asked the football manager to make a sponsorship donation for his school marathon.

“My life is full of memories with my father – his name was also Jose – and being a father is the best job.  Even if my job doesn’t allow me to see my children every day, on Father’s Day; we’ll have a special lunch or dinner if we can,” added Mourinho ahead of Father’s Day in the UK on Sunday.

Speaking before he departs for a week in Russia, Mourinho was optimistic about England’s chances.

“England have a good group of young, experienced players. All of them play in the best domestic competition in the world; and have experience of playing in the Champions League. So yes, I think they can do it.”

Mourinho was coy about the chances of pre-tournament favourites- France, Brazil, Germany and Argentina– but he emphasised the importance of teams as well as great individuals.

“They have good squads but good squads do not always make good teams. Sometimes not so special squads, in theory, can make better teams. For example, Portugal in the Euros had far from the best squad but they did it.”

Mourinho was part of the launch of the Jaguar XF Sportbrake in 2017 when he helped with Andy Murray’s first-ever replica Wimbledon trophy tour.

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is an award-winning saloon that delivers a compelling combination of design, driving dynamics and advanced technologies. The dynamic estate’s innovations include an intuitive gesture-controlled sunblind for the Sportbrake’s super-sized, full-length, panoramic roof, Driver Condition Monitoring to detect signs of tiredness after an active day and a waterproof Activity Key you can wear while playing sport.

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is available from £36,545. Check it out at Jaguarusa.com or on Instagram at Jaguar USA Instagram
