The Life: Lights and sights in Iceland, gourmet adventure in Peru, Spring/Summer trends

The March issue of The Life e-magazine takes you to two diverse places that will fire up your imagination and tastebuds.

Straits Times journalist Lim Yi Han journeys to Iceland, the land of fire and ice, where she witnessed the famous northern lights, the fiery glow of the erupting Bardarbunga volcano and shooting stars - all at the same time.

Other awesome sights on the trip: The 12m-tall Godafoss, or waterfall of the gods, and the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, where some icebergs are a bright blue colour, due to the interplay of light and ice crystals.

From Iceland, travel to Lima, in Peru, culinary destination of the moment.

Lifestyle writer Lydia Vasko gets the founder of luxury cruise line Aqua Expeditions, Mr Francesco Galli Zugaro, to share his insider knowledge of the city, from the hottest restaurants to the places which serve authentic street food.

Also in the March issue, fashion writer Leslie Kay Lim shows how you can work Spring/Summer fashion trends into your dressing, while arts correspondent Huang Lijie talks to art lovers who jet set around the world to enjoy art.
