In his early twenties, a young man from Switzerland arrives on the Greek Aegean island of Sifnos one May, trying, at once, to discover the colors of nature and, at the same time, his own personal colors.
A fabulous villa is the holy grail of a successful family getaway. You can all chill out, claim your own space and not fret about what time breakfast is served or whether your kids are annoying the honeymoon couple round the pool.
The recovery continues, but it remains weak, indeed a bit weaker than we forecast in April. We have revised our forecast for world growth in 2014 from 3.7 percent in April to 3.4 percent today. This headline number makes things look worse than they really are.
Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But even when you leave out the Islander pride, the answer to the question what the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia are, will be a very long one. Sardinia is often referred to as the Island of a Thousand Beautiful Beaches for a reason.
It is quiet again here in Spoleto, and that feels so good. The Festival Dei 2Mondi (Festival of 2 Worlds) ended with a glorious Final Concert in the Duomo Piazza, complete with American show tunes from the 50s and 60s!
The Confederation of Brazilian Football (CBF) today confirmed its selection of Carlos Dunga as coach of the Brazilian national team. Dunga succeeds Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned after Brazil's disappointing performance at the World Cup.

I love arts festivals, especially the opportunity to see so many new and interesting and challenging performances, and the Spoleto Festival dei 2Mondi was really amazing.
Paris, Rome, and London are all classic first-time Eurotrip destinations. But for savvy or returning travelers, Eastern European cities -- think: Prague, Budapest, and Tallinn, among offers -- offer just as much beauty and history, but at cheaper prices and in fewer crowds.
On the surface, Hungary enjoys freedom of the press. The Internet is a veritable free-for-all displaying a full range of opinions. But if you look a little deeper, this freedom of the press is actually quite limited.
Spying scandals, the systematic erosion of privacy. A corporate sector that makes mincemeat of American democracy.
