There’s always a system of rules – inevitably starting with one. The further along one gets with the rules, the less important the premier ones get and the rest gets all jumbled up. “Well. It’s kinda freaky. But sweet.” Such is how life goes. A young man in a blue velvet coat raises his finger...

The sun sets on Tel Aviv turning the UFO terminal of Ben Gurion Airport a shade of gold, while the blank blue recedes from teal to purple. Just hours ago, I shouldered my bags, tossed the keys on the puke-green counter top, and closed the door on another chapter of GabrielDesigns. Appropriate wouldn’t you say...

Shot last winter, this is the Nový Most in Bratislava. 431.8 metres long and 21 metres wide, this alien is the seventh largest cable-stayed bridge in the world. But its potentially-living visual reminiscent of an H.G. Wells fiction, is derived from its singular leaning A-shaped pylon construction. This hides 430 steps in one arm giving...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin High above the floor of the rift separating Israel from Jordan, there’s only silence. Even when words are spoken, the earth swallows up sound, deadening. Oppressive. It’s heavy, stifling, and brutal. Born out of a raw and ancient landscape, the silence is beautiful. Blanketed by sky blue. Follow my blog...

+ Mille Miglia, May 18

Dawn breaks in Roma and the Mercedes-Benz team gears up for the final and longest stretch all the way back to Brescia. Through Siena and Firenze, the classics speed through the gorgeous paesaggi of Toscana. But as some would agree, one of the most memorable moments was seeing these cars through the compressed streets of...

700 metres above sea level lies San Marino, one of the checkpoints of the Mille Miglia. The Mercedes-Benz team is there early, waiting with cups of cappuccino and sunglasses on. The view is absolutely stunning as the cars enter the Palazzo Publico piazza! Details on mb.mercedes-benz.com soon.

+ Mille Miglia, May 16

The Mille Miglia starts at 6:30pm in Brescia and by the time the SSK swings into view at Lago di Garda, the Mercedes-Benz team is already waiting with glasses of Aperol, iPads, and Nikon cameras. The view of the gleaming 300SL gullwing waving its doors up at the sunset skies was a sight to see!...

Mercedes-Benz, aside from cars, have always been keen on fabrics and fashion. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week…should I say more? So when it DOES come to cars, it’s no surprise then that fashion plays an integral part in their Mille Miglia team uniforms. Details on mb.mercedes-benz.com soon.

The bloke at Border Control doesn’t like me much. The American passport is an instant failure. The immigration/visa stamps from Italy, France, Germany, Israel, South Korea…oh the frown deepens. “Please step this way Sir…” (…40 mins later…) There’s a “Welcome to London” sign just outside the Border Control exit at Gatwick Airport. The welcome team...

You know someone who knows how to laugh? Really laugh? Eyes closed, head thrown back, body reacting with the humor of life? Here’s one for you…You have to travel to Israel to see this particular sight, but hopefully you have one closer to home.
