By David McAninch The New York Times Fri., Nov. 9, 2018 Not long ago, I spent a week walking around Paris. Before you yawn jadedly, let me clarify: I walked all the way around Paris. I began each day by donning a pair of beat-up Sauconys, consuming a prodigious breakfast at my hotel near the Porte Dorée, tucking a notebook and pen into my pocket, and proceeding on foot in a counterclockwise direction along the perimeter of the oval-shaped metropolis. I did not visit the Latin Quarter, the Marais, or Montparnasse. I skipped the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay and the Eiffel Tower.

Performance-driven Volkswagen Golf variant among most well-rounded cars in market... By Azlan Ramli IF you feel that saloons and their chunky tail and spacious rear seating carry too much unnecessary weight, or that SUVs are not fun on twisty roads and sports cars are generally impractical, but you still want a thrilling drive and some practicality, sporty hatchbacks are usually the best option. But if you want awesome power and handling to go with the ability to accommodate a few excited passengers, some luggage and running errands in relative comfort and civility, I highly recommend the Volkswagen Golf R. Introduced to the market in March this year, the Golf family consists of the Golf TSI in Sportline and R-Line, the iconic Golf GTI and this Golf R. Retaining the charisma of past models with the unmistakable design, the new Golf family has been updated with details such as redesigned bumpers, new conceptualised headlights and LED tail lights. I spent about eight days with … [Read more...] about R-eady for the ultimate hot hatch?
