Like all 21st-century speakeasies, 1930 is all about creativity, with a splash of cuteness.
Although I've damn near circumnavigated the globe, I've never been on vacation. Work was always waiting for me when I got somewhere. I'm not complaining because I love what I do. But I rarely took the time to appreciate where I was.
This is one of the most luxurious hotels in Italy, and if you've been thinking of doing something special for your mom, wife, and/or hubby (you go, you sugar mama, you), I would most definitely recommend bringing them here to treat them for a night of two.
Hostels are usually found in the most convenient of locations and increasing numbers of travelers -- both young and old -- are recognizing the benefits booking into such affordable accommodation.
It ain't summertime without at least spending a few days at the beach soaking up the rays and relaxing with family and friends.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has argued that "liberal democratic societies cannot remain globally competitive" because their decision-making mechanisms are anachronistic. As Orbán sees it, the alternative is to build what he calls an "illiberal" democratic state.

The 2014 program seems to run through a very specific leitmotif, a theme that asks the audience, but also the human race in general to respect the environment around us -- before it overtakes us.
While in Sicily something magical happened on one day, without any planning or use of technology... Just me, my husband and two bad photocopies of a picture of my great-grandmother and a street in her village, Sperlinga.
"Wow, she's gained so much weight." "She really looks terrible." "I can't believe how big she is." This is what I imagine people say about me when I walk out of a room.
The French painter Claude Monet spent one winter -- the early part of 1884 -- in the Italian town of Bordighera, having been introduced to this part of the Riviera by his friend Renoir the year before.
Summer means travel, and time to think big, from private bungalows in the tropics to romantic Tuscan villas and stunning escapes closer to home. Behold, the five luxury hotels on the CS Bucket List.
According to the coalition, its members simply cannot impose further spending cuts. They assert that their budgets have been cut to the bone. This claim is ludicrous.
For Ferrarini and other international members of Teatroaperto, including myself, the theater -- as the stage for Europe's unfolding Mare Nostrum challenges -- can at least provide for a safe, healing and creative space, as well as a historical and narrative context, for such stories to be voiced and heard.
