A ride on the Flåm Railway (or Flåmsbana) is no ordinary train trip. From the storybook hamlet of Flåm (pop. 400) on the shores of Norway’s glacial-cut Aurlandsfjord inlet, to the mountaintop station of Myrdal, the 20 kilometer track snakes through 20 tunnels as it ascends an astonishing 860 metres in just an hour. This steep climb through dramatic, primeval mountains is unlike any other train voyage in the world.
Bicycle west along the Seine from Caudebec-en-Caux in the Normandy region of Northern France to the tiny village of Villequier, and you will come to a stately riverfront mansion—the home of the Victor Hugo Museum since 1959. Not to be confused with the Parisian Maison de Victor Hugo, where the author once lived, this Villequier property served as the holiday home of the affluent Vacquerie family, close friends of the author himself.
A gun-metal gray helicopter whisks you off to Azura Quilalea Private Island. Greeted by the manager, you walk along a shell-and-coral path to reception. The view encompasses a postcard-pretty beach in front of the resort’s PADI dive center (top-notch, you discover later). You’re then shown to your hand-crafted villa (there are only nine). Facing the sea, it has coral stone walls, soaring makuti thatch roof and stone floor inlaid with shell mosaics.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
