EUROPE: From October 17 customers will be able to book berths on the first open-access passenger service to operate on the French network, an overnight train from Paris to Venezia that is to be introduced on December 11 by the Thello joint venture of Veolia Transdev and Trenitalia.Announcing the Thello brand name on October 6, the partners said the southbound service would depart from Paris Lyon at 20.43 each day, and arrive at Venezia Santa Lucia at 09.34 the following morning, having called at Dijon, Milano, Brescia, Verona, Vicenza and Padova. The northbound train will leave Venezia at 19.57 and is scheduled to arrive in Paris at 08.14.Three classes of accommodation will be offered, the most economical being for travel in couchette compartments containing six berths. There will also be four-berth couchettes, as well as sleeping compartments for between one and three passengers, equipped with a private shower and toilet. Thello says some couchette compartments will be reserved for female passengers travelling on their own.Looking to bring new standards of passenger comfort to the route, Thello will be providing a 36-seat restaurant car on each train, operated by LSG Sky Chefs and serving menus devised by leading chefs. There will also be a bar/buffet counter as well as a trolley service for couchette passengers.Test running is already underway in France with a three-system Class 36000 electric loco which has been uprated from 160 km/h to 200 km/h operation. Thello is to lease a batch of these locos from SNCF subsidiary Akiem to haul its overnight trains; they were built to haul cross-border freight services between France and Italy.

(Photo credit MICHAEL BRADLEY/AFP via Getty Images)Fans of the Emirates Lions finally got something to cheer about after the club announced it had strengthened its squad with three signings.The Lions signed two new players while one committed his future to the club with a contract extension.Fullback Divan Rossouw signed for the Lions from fellow South African side the Vodacom Bulls and Maties Under-21 fly-half Jordan Hendrikse joined from Maties both on two-year contracts. Meanwhile, centre Wandisile Simelane extended his contract by a further two years.Until now, unlike the Vodacom Bulls and DHL Stormers who have announced a number of recruitments, the Lions had not seen acquisitions during this off-season period due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Lions had instead seen departures which are expected to inevitably impact the team’s strength.The Lions grabbed the headlines following news that five members opted to capitalize on South Africa’s Industry Salary Plan and canceled their contracts with the Lions.The most notable name among the five was 25-year-old Springbok hooker and Rugby World Cup winner Malcolm Marx. The others to depart from the Johannesburg-based side were lock Ruan Vermaak, utility back Tyrone Green, fly-half Shaun Reynolds and coach Neil de Bruin.The disruptions to South African rugby by COVID-19 saw SA Rugby announce an Industry Salary Plan (ISP) which included a range of cost-cutting measures, among them huge wage cuts, to save 1.2 billion Rand in expenses. As part of the ISP, South Africa’s professional rugby players were given a 21-day period in which to request contract termination and leave their franchises and provinces immediately.The Lions have been a force in Super Rugby reaching the finals thrice in the last four years. However, their performances in 2020 have drastically dropped with the side recording just one win in six matches so far. The Lions lie bottom of the South African Conference and 13th out of 15 teams in the overall table.Related
LocalNews Secret Bay named top resort by: – January 7, 2013 Share Dominica’s newest luxury hotel has made it on the top one hundred list of best resorts in the world.Secret Bay, which is located in Portsmouth ranked number two on Harper’s Bazaar’s Travel Hot 100 list of hot and trendy destinations.“The spark of the unfamiliar is what inspires – it’s what makes us see the world afresh” says Catherine Fairweather, associate editor/travel director with Harper’s Bazaar. “It’s good to feel like you’re in on a secret..,” she continued.Introducing Secret Bay as a resort with just “two private bungalows and villas,” the article goes on to mention Secret Bay’s “discrete service 24/7” and its unique concept. “It has no reception, restaurant or bar but is a hideaway stocked with Kindles, sound systems and personal chefs.” Referring to Secret Bay’s “spectacular views of neighboring Guadeloupe” and “the beautiful white-sand Secret Beach… only accessible by kayak,” the feature also captures the essence of Dominica: “The pristine Caribbean island of Dominica, a haven for hikers, whale watchers and birders, has verdant beauty, dramatic black volcanic sand, thermal pools and countless waterfalls and rivers.”Fairweather, in her introduction of the Travel Hot 100 list, said “adventure is certainly a buzzword for 2013” and “regardless of how isolated the retreat; levels of service are being raised to ever more surprising heights.” Echoing this sentiment, The Knot recently selected Secret Bay and Dominica as one of the top 10 destinations in the world for “Adventure Honeymoons”.Secret Bay is becoming known as one of the best boutique resorts in the Caribbean and the world for honeymoons, anniversaries, small family escapes and adventure vacations. Situated on a cliff-top promontory overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Secret Bay is unique in its diversity: two secluded swimming beaches, a spectacular sea-cave; the magical Cario River and two distinct micro-climates. The secluded villas and bungalows were conceptualized by award-winning Latin American architect Fruto Vivas, to maximize the natural beauty of Secret Bay and to minimize the impact on this pristine environment.It has been selected by Travel + Leisure as one of the best new hotels in the world and by The Knot as one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world.Dominica Vibes News 19 Views 2 comments Share Share Sharing is caring!
