Welcome to Ekaruna’s travel issue
Whether you like spending your holiday under the Lebanese rays of sunshine, or you go searching for summer further afield, this issue is all about travel; what to buy; where to buy and how to decorate with a holiday-ish state of mind this summer season.
Comme Toujours – we’re lusting over French Riviera holidays, so excuse the French – we begin with regional and international news pieces that are not to be missed (p.12), then delve into the world of foreign property with Plus Properties Cyprus’ new real estate development project Plus 1 Drosia in Larnaca (p.18), introduce Cascada Village (p.20), and explore some great investment alternatives – think of buying a divine piece of land on some magical shore – to entertain the family and friends in the holidays (p.24). Though, we’ve also got some numbers on Pakistan – probably not the greatest destination for the summer vacation, but the investment might pay off to afford yourself a very coveted beachside resort getaway (p.26).
The magazine has also adopted an art melody in this issue. Yasmin Harake speaks to Stephanie Richa on her art, and foreign influences (p.30), and Ruwan Teodros introduces you to the “art of buying: arts and antiques like an expert” (p.36).
The list goes on and on, but for the sake of abridgement this summer season, we’ll keep at it that. The perfect reading to accompany a summer beer (or something stronger) in the sunshine or, being thoroughly Lebanese, curled up indoors in the “AC” as we like to call it.
Inside or out, home or away, we wish you a happy reading.
