The best vegetarian burgers year

To say they are our cousins ​​GQ Use: the sandwich tastes better than New York is a hamburger with lettuce, cucumbers and a meatball secret that does not contain meat
His bread is crushed to wonder, lettuce creaks as the best fresh salad and cucumber breaks in your mouth. According to our cousins ​​of GQ Use Superiority Burger eponymous New York restaurant is absolutely the best burger of the year: with the distinction of being 100% vegetarian. That’s right, the Americans – always lovers of ground meat – seem to have turned their backs on good old beef meatball, or at least seem to start taking seriously the alternatives.
In this case, to conquer the palate of journalist Nick Marino it was a meatball consistency practically perfect. Not a common pseudo-vegetable burgers soggy or sandy, in fact. His recipe? Absolutely top secret. The only thing that is given us to know is that inside there is no provision to the flesh (and possibly the sandwich is also available as a vegan). A delicacy to be missed, with the full approval of WHO.

I never gave up everything? Somebody did and went to Jamaica

Not only Bob Marley, beaches and cannabis. Andrea Cavallo Perin has dropped everything and left for six months exploring the Caribbean island every respect. His story
“Drop everything”. Hands up who has not thought at least once in their lifetime. Someone, in addition to having thought, has also done. Andrea Cavallo Perin, creative Turin of 29, he left for Jamaica in order to discover traditions and customs. And correct just clichés frequently. Let’s start with this: reeds, Bob Marley, breathtaking beaches, homophobia. “For heaven’s sake, all true, except racism: never look or an insult because they are white. Jamaica is far “, explains just returned from the Caribbean island after six months. “People have a great memory of the past because he lived and was freed from slavery. For Accompong Maroon for example, a man took me into the forest and showed me the place where his ancestors had fought for his life. That place, like many other things, is blessed with the rum, a rite of purification. ” It is thanks to a Jamaican rum, Appleton Rum, that Andrea was able to document everything.
“The rum in Jamaica is regarded as our wine, we do not miss my table and varies from Azona in the area, and also by social status.”
The exploration
“Every day, wake up at 7:30, breakfast with ackee, tropical fruit and Saltfish, dried fish; then exploring the length and breadth of the island. ” The thing that struck him was the nature: “dominates the man with all its power and luxuriance” But even people, “now tell much about himself and their country, from the manager to the farmer, without distinctions. But also reggae, slavery and much more. ” But there is one aspect that Andrea did not like: the slowness. “It will be in the heat but we have totally different rhythms and I have not managed to adapt. Everyone says: “Jamaica no problem”. ” The only thing that Andrea will is a biped bird: the chicken. “They call it Jerk chicken and cooked in many different ways. I’d had enough. ”
The journey is over, but for six months Andrew has really dropped everything, beginning with his work that is now ready to take it back. Not behind a desk, but still with a video camera, “I’m leaving for the” Around the World in 80 Days “. That is a video project that will tell the generation of global shapers, those young people who have invented something relevant and living in the same city in the book by Jules Verne. “

Most visitors, however, in Mykonos goes directly to heaven: the most famous sandy beaches of Greece, Paradise and Super Paradise, welcome varies worldliness, nudists and pop music at high volume from five in the afternoon at five in the morning. The surfers chasing the Meltemi, the relentless wind of the Cyclades, link to Ftelia on the north coast, while Psarou, on the south coast, there is a qualified diving center. The best way to unwind after nights of dancing or offshore activities is a dish kopanisti, goat cheese very spicy obtained after repeated fermentation, accompanied by a glass of ouzo, or for those who do not like alcohol, of soumada, refreshing drink milk of almonds.

The history of this island and very troubled, because, in 1952, with the arrival of phylloxera that began to ravage the vineyards from California, the agricultural sector was severely compromised; sometimes, as they say, the worst there is no end in fact, in 1965, the island was disrupted by a huge earthquake that brought the people to move in a hurry in the Patitiri abandoning their homes to find refuge in new earthquake-resistant buildings. To get a small summary of the history of this island, you can visit the Folklore Museum and the Northern Sporades, located behind the beach marina, a private pole owned by Kostas and Anghela Mavrikis that, from May to September, invites tourists to get into the tradition admiring everyday objects that tell the lifestyle of the local as well as make a complete picture of Greek history and the wars that have seen protagonist.

In order to know with their own eyes this paradise, it’s worth taking part in day trips aboard the “Gorgona” in the company of Captain Pakis Athanasiou driving, with his stories, at a time of wonders like the Blue Grotto, Peristera, Agios Demetrios then reach Kyra Panagia and visit the monastery, still under construction, where you can buy wine, olive oil, souvenirs and various sacred objects.
Its small size, it is about twenty kilometers in length, allow to discover it in full in a few days, which is by car or scooter: do not miss the old Alonissos, or its Chora, a place with a high level of romance set on the top of a hill where you fall in love those white houses full of fuchsia bougainvillea, a particularly scenic at sunset when the sun gives fascinating play of light and colors that illuminate immense. Here you can stroll among the shops, stopping off in one of the many restaurants and cafes as the “Taverna To Aloni” from whose terrace offers a climate of total relaxation, surrounded by the atmosphere simple and familiar while, to delight the palate, we think specialties such as the famous cheese cake, the tyropita.

Can not deny that Alonissos is renowned for its beaches that have a really authentic look because mostly shrouded by lush vegetation as Milia, located in the south-east of the island in a cove hidden in a thick pine forest: over here the stones, you can take advantage of a sandy area that takes nothing away from the intense blue of the sea. The mix sand and stones is also found in Kokkinokastro, very romantic at sunset when the sun sheds light on the big red cliff that forms a small cape; it was here that, apparently, was the ancient city of Ikos, and, to prove it, are the remains of the walls that emerge from the water. No less Chrisi Milia, the busiest beach of the island and because it turns admiring its golden sand and its position that sees fit in the heart of a lush pine forest and the beaches more rocky site north as Megali Ammos, Tourkoneri and Gialia.

Barcelona, ​​Mykonos and Brighton three LGBT festival in August

Three international events not to be missed.

At a time to Italy so hot, and not only climatically, it’s good to choose a destination fresh to make a fresh experience. Cool in the sense of invigorating, dynamic, open, cheerful. “Gay”, in short, which in English means just that, “cheerful”. Thus leaving behind the burdens of the controversy about the law Cirinnà, that in these hot summer months seeking an agreement to regulate the emotional life of people LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer and Intersex), currently excluded from full citizenship.

And since that is all the rage, including heterosexual people, join battles homo, attending events, at parties, at exhibitions, festivals, parades, pride, here are three international appointments missed. To mark definitely on the agenda, both for fun quotient, both as an opportunity for arcobalenizzare its position in the world and in life, just as he recently successfully proposed Facebook with its image-profile option. The first of the festival is the hetero-friendly Brighton Pride (brighton-pride.org), the first and 2 August.

The English city is definitely the San Francisco European point of reference for the LGBTQI community in Europe. This is in effect the most important Pride of our continent, and has thousands of visitors every year, not only gay, but all ready to side with human rights. It starts with the Parade in the morning, which culminates, as always, to Preston Park for the main event: to await the procession, djs sets, street dances and metcatini for every taste. While the parade is free, who wants to join the party must do, however, the ticket of € 25.

The Circuit Festival, for those who prefer the south, is held instead in Barcelona 5 to 16 August (circuitfestival.net). Born seven years ago, it has quickly become a meeting area for many inhabitants of the planet because of the extraordinary ability to entertain kids and adults of all sexual orientations.

It is a series of pool parties with no stop dj set of worldwide fame that would unleash anyone. The final event, strictly set in a water park, it’s enough to make your head spin as inveterate party-goer. With around 350 Euros you can access all the events.

Finally, the festival cult for the faunas and international LGBTQI & friends: the XLSIOR Mykonos (xlsiorfestival.com). From August 19 to 23 this year goes on stage one of the most exclusive gay events in the world. The location, the island perhaps most charming and picturesque of all Greece, promises comfort to 100% and zero inconvenience to tourists, despite the difficulties experienced by the country. Excellent opportunity, indeed, to support, together with the rights LGBTQI, also the birthplace of our Europe. Many evenings scheduled for this year 2015, and, although, given the frequent sold-out, it’s hard to get tickets for the entire event, you can groped to buy individual events.

They arrived the sales! The great fortunes buying house in Greece taking advantage of the crisis.

One of the maxims of capitalism is “advantage of times of crisis”, because it is precisely then that the prices are lower. That’s what they’re doing great fortunes in Greece: buy real estate with cut prices

Since 2009, year of the beginning of the crisis in Greece, the price of luxury homes in this Mediterranean paradise fell 50%. And one of the houses of the middle class, 30%. A real opportunity not to be missed.

This is what must have thought the big investors – especially Russians – who are cast as vultures on real estate opportunities. A house on the island of Syros, who until recently was worth 1.6 million euro, now sells for 800,000 Euros. Exactly half. This has increased dramatically the interest of buyers. “Last year we had an average of five people per month interested in luxury homes” – he told the Bild Wadim Dolmidinis, director of Greece Invest. “Now there are already eight month”

The first buyers are Russians, followed by the Chinese, particularly interested in homes around Athens. And the third and fourth place, the fortunes Serbian and Bulgarian. It’s time balances.
