The Data Driven Digital World

While researching a limo service in Toronto I came to realize that the world is now driven by big data. Data is quite literally everything. It’s recorded everywhere. Everything online is data and all of that data is worth money to someone, somewhere. I’ve been wondering why exactly a company like Uber is able to produce any kind of profit. Sure, they have captured a huge percentage of a market and while they take a cut from their drivers, it’s not so much as to be hugely impressive. What they do have is a position to record unique data and lots of it.

Exploring South Beach

Anantara_Dhigu_MaldivesWelcome-jetty-12Miami can feel at times like a never-ending feast for the senses. Glamour is part of everyday life here – celebrities, mansions, and public displays of consumption and wealth are the order of the day – and nowhere is this exhibited more than in South Beach, the most iconic neighborhood of the Greater Miami area.

From the classic swooping facades and meticulous neon of the city’s signature deco designs to its nonstop beach life and vibrant party scenes, South Beach exemplifies a unique brand of Floridian oceanside chic. What’s more, the best of this nook of Miami can be enjoyed without a car – to get around quickly, utilize the excellent DecoBike sharing program, or your own two feet.

A pastel history preserved

South Beach, also known as ‘SoBe,’ is perhaps known best for its sunny take on art deco architecture. Only in South Beach does this smooth Modernist style take on a particular hybrid of pastel palettes and sleek curves, buttresses and contours, meant to evoke early 20th century train and ocean travel.

A good starting point for anyone interested in this style is the

Choosing a beach in Cape Cod

Bayview-Beach-Dennis-Cape-CodAh, Cape Cod, America’s postcard-perfect summertime destination: sand dunes covered with wild beach rose, happy kids frolicking in the waves and sailboats drifting peacefully off the coast. But there are nearly 560 miles of coastline here, so those postcards don’t give the whole story. 

You’ll also find wild Atlantic waves to surf, fish to reel in, lighthouses to climb and trails to explore. There’s a beach for every bum, including yours.

Best for… beach bars

  • Cahoon Hallow Beach If you’re ready to rock, the Beachcomber in Wellfleet is the place to head. A restaurant and bar by day, as the sun goes down ‘Da Comba’ morphs into a club hosting some fine bands (The Wailers and The Lemonheads have both played here). Its setting in a former lifesaving station also means you can keep an eye on the surf action as you tuck in to your lobster roll.

Best for… ice cream

  • Craigville Beach It’s not exactly on the beach, but Four Seas is a nearby local institution that has been scooping homemade ice cream since the 1930s. Classic flavors with toppings such as hot fudge, butterscotch or wild cherry

Kauai for honeymooners and romantics

kauai-poipu-beachPlenty of starry-eyed couples head to Hawaii because they’re ‘Getting Maui’d’. But for honeymooners and romantics, the top pick for a tropical getaway made just for two is Kauaʻi. Here on the Garden Island, verdant jungle, white-sand beaches, skyscraping sea cliffs and Hawaii’s own ‘Grand Canyon of the Pacific’ all make a dramatic backdrop that even Hollywood directors fall in love with.

With luxe oceanfront resorts and private cottage hideaways, sunset drinks on the beach, and thrilling outdoor adventures that just can’t be had on any other Hawaiian Island, you’ll be all set for an unforgettable honeymoon or anniversary trip.

Sail along the legendary Na Pali Coast

Where roads end, there begins Kauaʻi’s legendary Na Pali Coast. Rugged cliffs tower 4000ft above the thrashing surf, and a rainbow of tropical fish float in aquamarine coves. Elsewhere, crystalline waterfalls tumble down streams that meander through fertile valleys. Clamber aboard a catamaran for a snorkel cruise leaving out of Port Allen, or sign up for a bumpier, splashier – and ultimately more thrilling – rafting tour. Some rafting outfitters let you step back in time by landing at
