PRIOR’S FAVOURITE EXPERIENCES FOR 2019
A LONG SICILIAN SUMMER
To experience la dolce vita in the deepest way, spend an entire summer in Sicily. Rent a villa in the region’s south-east, full of crumbling Baroque cities and tiny towns.
Take an inner journey outside in Ladakh, exploring the remote Buddhist district high in the Himalayas where the way of life remains largely unadulterated.
Learn crafts alongside Japanese artisans keeping generations-old techniques alive in the mountain-bound town of Matsumoto.
THE NEW SAFARI
To explore Madagascar is to fall in love with the bizarreness of the natural world and be converted to one of its guardians.
RENEW CONFIDENCE AT CARNAVAL
To experience Carnaval at its most visceral, head for Salvador in Bahia, the centre of Afro-Brazilian culture. Besides the requisite partying, it’s an electric jolt for anyone’s body confidence, as every shape and size shakes, swings and sways in pure anonymous joy.
