LONDON, ENGLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 12/17/13 -- "Once a year, go some place you've never been before." Dalai Lama. Wise words are being taken to heart as Brits ditch classical off the shelf holidays to broaden their horizons, with memorable tailor-made holidays arranged by Bridge & Wickers.
Bridge & Wickers shares its expertise and experience to give holidaymakers the freedom to create the adventures of their dreams. Unlike the vast majority of travel companies they don't try and 'squeeze round pegs into square holes.' They acknowledge that everyone is different and everyone has their own expectations of what a luxury holiday means to them. Bridge & Wickers go that extra mile to build an entire holiday around the needs of their customers from start to finish.
Whether you seek peace and tranquillity, history and culture, or the buzz of an exciting cosmopolitan city, Bridge & Wickers has a High Five list of top stopover destinations to help those who want to get the very most from their next luxury holiday.
These are the five stopover cities Bridge & Wickers has judged to be the very best the world has to offer:
Singapore - Referred to as 'The Switzerland of the East', Singapore is renowned for its pristine appearance and excellent service. It's the ideal gateway if you want to expand your horizons and travel into other parts of Asia. There's an amazing amount to do and see in the city to suit all tastes and interests. From shopping to fabulous eating places to wonders of the natural world.
Sydney - The idyll of luxury experiences, Sydney is a feast for all the senses. It works as a destination in its own right as well as a gateway to exploring other parts of Australia or going on to New Zealand. Using Sydney as a base you'll find you'll be able to explore further afield as little or as much as you want to. There's plenty to do and see for all ages. Include Sydney as a stopover, a starting point or stay and enjoy its delights for the entire duration of your holiday.
Los Angeles - Perfect for a stopover on your way to New Zealand and the island of the South Pacific - you can add a three day break to your itinerary and see the spectacle that is L.A. You don't have to be a film star to get a real buzz out of this fabulous city. Stay in luxury accommodation and enjoy the good life in true Hollywood style.
Hong Kong - A favourite stopover on long haul flights, Hong Kong offers a plethora of fascinating experiences to woo you into thinking you're already at your final holiday destination. Bridge & Wickers can arrange for you to stay for a few days so that you can soak up the atmosphere and get a real feel for Asian life and culture.
Dubai - For many years Dubai was simply a middle of the night pit stop between here and there. But, thanks to the opening of some of the best hotels in the world, Dubai has become a destination in its own right. With perfect winter weather and a wised white-sand beach, it makes great sense to rest here and catch your breath. If there's a snag to the Riviera of the Middle East, it's that you've only managed to clip seven hours off your journey (and four hours' worth of time zones) but at least you're just a one-stop hop away from Oz.
You'll be given as much, or as little, looking after as you want when you arrange a tailor-made luxury holiday with Bridge & Wickers.

It’s been proven time and time again that in tech, diversity drives greater innovation, better team productivity and greater profits and market share.

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with security. The SEC didn’t approve the merger. And your boss hasn’t heard anything about it. Yet, this unruly triumvirate will soon dominate and deliver DevSecOps faster, cheaper, better, and on an unprecedented scale. In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, will discuss how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a prac...

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...
