Welcome to Ekaruna’s travel is­sue

Ekaruna - - Contents -

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.
