    The Guardian newspaper has learned of Greeces plans to sell or offer long-term leases on some of its beautiful and highly popular islands, reports property website House Sales Greece (). This remarkable decision which could see some of the most unusual property sales in Greece and indeed Europe is an attempt by the country to repay its sizeable debts. It is thought that (unsurprisingly given the scale of the purchase) wealthy property investors are likely to be the target market.

    In a move never even previously considered by its government, Greece has decided to put some of its 6,000 picturesque islands up for sale or long-term lease to anyone that can afford what are sure to be hefty price tags. Its not just Greek properties on the islands that will bear a for sale or for rent sign – whole areas of some islands will be for sale or rent to the right buyer. The Guardian has found that an area of Mykonos which is one-third owned by the government will be put up for sale to a real estate investor who can not only afford the price of the sale itself but who is also willing and able to invest cash into developing a new luxury tourist complex on the island.

    Wealthy purchasers and property investors from Russia and China are also looking to buy Greek property on the island of Rhodes, according to the article. These are two of the BRIC nations; along with Brazil and India, Russia and China have been highlighted as emerging economies with an ever-increasing class of the super-rich. It is these high-net worth individuals and property investors that are being targeted to buy property in Greece and its islands to help fill the countrys empty coffers. It is thought that Roman Abramovich, the billionaire owner of Chelsea football club, could be one of the more famous investors considering purchasing a slice of a Greek island.

    Meanwhile, mere mortals have not turned their back on property in Greece. While the dire economic situation of the country has seen an increase in the number of people needing to sell property in Greece, there is still interest from people wanting to buy Greek property, particularly bargain hunters looking to exploit the market.

    If youre looking to buy or sell Greek property even if its a humble apartment rather than a swathe of a Greek island then youll find further information and the latest property listings at .

    A few years ago I took the Trafalgar Tour Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. I chose this tour because it offered a slower pace than most tours. The tour consisted of 3 nights in each city. I really enjoyed this aspect so that I did not have to pack and unpack every day. The tour group really had plenty of leisure time to explore the cities. We began the tour in Prague. I had seen Prague in a lot of movies but it really was breath taking in person! The architecture was so beautiful. I also happen to be a big fan of Eastern Europe food so that was a plus! In Prague, the sightseeing included the St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague Castles, and the Charles Bridge. After that there was plenty of time to shop!

    After Prague, we headed to Vienna for the next 3 nights. I absolutely loved Vienna! Famous included sights were the Hofburg Palace, Parliament Buildings and the Opera House. An optional tour that I had to sign up for is the Lipizzan horses. These majestic beautiful white horses look like they are dancing to classical music. We were able to see them while training. Another optional tour I took was the Viennese classical music. would recommend everyone to sign up for that one. Again the food was delicious!

    Last but not least, we went to Budapest. This is a city where definitely want to come back and spend more time exploring. We took a lovely dinner cruise on the Danube at night. The buildings are gorgeous at night illuminated. All of the hotels in each city were great location and interior as well. I had a fantastic tour director who was charming, knowledgeable, and funny! He kept us entertained with hilarious stories during our driving from city to city. The tour group was great as well. I met people from all over the world and we all got along fabulously! The fare well dinner is always sad, saying goodbye to new friends. I would recommend this tour for people who want a slower pace and have time to enjoy each city.

    Holidaymakers hoping to see a little bit more of the Bahamas can opt for an overnight stay which will cost approximately $25.5 per person on top of the day rates.

    The first inhabitants of Galapagos Islands, were between two and three hundred in number; they are nearly all people of colour, who have been banished for political crimes from the Republic of the Equator, of which Quito is the capital. The settlement is placed about four and a half miles inland, and at a height probably of a thousand feet. In the first part of the road we passed through leafless thickets, as in Chatham Islands at Galapagos Islands.
    Higher up, the woods gradually became greener; and as soon as we crossed the ridge of the Galapagos islands, we were cooled by a fine southerly breeze, and our sight refreshed by a green and thriving vegetation. In this upper region coarse grasses and ferns abound; but there are no tree-ferns: I saw nowhere any member of the palm family, which is the more singular, as 360 miles northward, Cocos Island takes its name from the number of cocoa-nuts. The houses are irregularly scattered over a flat space of ground, which is cultivated with sweet potatoes and bananas. It will not easily be imagined how pleasant the sight of black mud was to us, after having been so long, accustomed to the parched soil of Peru and northern Chile.

    The inhabitants, although complaining of poverty, obtained, without much trouble, the means of subsistence. In the woods there are many wild pigs and goats; but the staple article of animal food is supplied by the tortoises. Their numbers have of course been greatly reduced in this Galapagos islands, but the people yet count on two days’ hunting giving them food for the rest of the week. It is said that formerly single vessels have taken away as many as seven hundred, and that the ship’s company of a frigate some years since brought down in one day two hundred tortoises to the beach.

    One of the most sought after Miami hotels- the Setai South Beach has recently undergone an unusual management shake-up. The hotel, owned by Setai Owners LLC (a unit of Lehman Brothers) was managed by Singapore based firm General Hotel Management (GHM) until a hostile takeover on 31st March 2012 which saw GMH replaced by Trevi Luxury Hospitality Group a firm which specialises in luxury hotels and resorts.

    GMH was ousted in a dramatic style, reminiscent of a something straight out of a film, with owners of the Setai South Beach arriving with armed guards at 2:30 am announcing the management change.

    According to a press release from GMH, Representatives from Lehman Brothers arrived at the hotel with armed guards and off duty sheriff officers in uniform in the early morning hours on March 31st. They informed us that they were taking over the property and that General Hotel Management (GHM) was no longer welcome on the property. These actions took us by surprise, as we had no prior indication they were intending to do this, nor were we under the impression that they were unhappy with our performance. We had just achieved the second best financial performance year since the inception of the hotel, not an easy accomplishment in the current economic environment

    The luxurious hotel has proven to be one of the most popular with travellers spending Miami holidays in South Beach. The Setai is currently ranked 14 out of 204 Miami Beach hotels on popular travel review website TripAdvisor. However, based on the information gathered following a request for arbitration at the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris, Lehman Brothers claim that under the GMHs inefficient management the hotel was not as profitable at it should be claiming that GMH squandered $7.6 million in incremental profit.

    The Setai South Beach boasts three swimming pools, a spa- perfect for unwinding after the shopping sprees that most travellers relish when booking holidays in Miami, guests can also enjoy a wide range of dining facilities as well as the picturesque landscaping echoing the serene minimalist Asian-inspired motif woven throughout the hotels decor.

    A single nights stay at this lavish hotel in Miamis trendy South Beach can cost anywhere upwards of $725 USD. Given all that the hotel has to offer there is no doubt that despite the peculiar circumstances under which management changed hands, guests will continue to enjoy first class accommodation during their Miami holidays. Vice president of Lehman Brothers Holdings, Anthony Barsanti expressed optimism stating, We believe that under the right management, this property has limitless potential.

    It is important to get the right advice if you are considering taking legal action against your Tour Operator for an illness that you contracted while you were abroad in Tunisia. Specialist Holiday Illness Claims Solicitors may be able to handle your claim when you are back in the UK.

    Many holidaymakers who visit Tunisia each year also return home having suffered with illness while away or continue to suffer sickness when in the UK. In Tunisia, the foods to avoid are undercooked or reheated meat, unpasteurised milk, local tap water, ice cubes and unpeeled fruit. Holidaymakers should only consume purchase branded bottled water.

    Hotels in Tunisia will often serve a range of hot and cold foods. Cold foods such as salads, salad dressings and mayonnaise need to be kept in a refrigerator prior to being served to hotels guests. This also applies to the cold food served at the buffet. Other foods served at the buffet should not be reheated and then served to guests. Further to this, any freshly cooked food should never simply be added to food that has already been served out as contamination could occur. Kitchen staff must maintain basic levels of food hygiene and the kitchen food preparation areas must be kept clean at all to times to prevent the spread of infection.

    All Inclusive hotels in Tunisia that have had episodes of illness and sickness need to be inspected on regular basis by Tour Operator representatives. This is to ensure that repeat outbreaks of illness and sickness do not happen. Holidaymakers that contract illnesses from an all inclusive resort are likely to have caught the infection from the food served within the resort complex.

    All food, but especially meat such as chicken, pork and burgers, should be well cooked and served hot. Any food that appears undercooked and is lukewarm should not be eaten and should be avoided. If the food is like this at your all inclusive hotel in Tunisia then you should report it to the hotel management.

    Infection caught from food in an all inclusive hotel will likely lead to symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea. It may be the case that the holidaymaker has contracted Salmonella, E-Coli or Campylobacter food poisoning. In the case of a confirmed pathogen it is very important that you seek medical attention and treatment. Constant vomiting and diarrhoea will cause the body to dehydrate causing the holidaymaker to become seriously ill. Holidaymakers have reported cases of Salmonella upon returning home from Tunisia.

    A specialist holiday illness claims solicitor will be able to help you claim compensation for an illness that you have suffered whilst on holiday in Tunisia. Compensation can be awarded for your illness, loss of holiday enjoyment and any medical expenses you incurred whilst you were out in Tunisia. The claim can be taken on a no win, no fee basis so that you wont have to fund any expensive legal bills.

    Colour is one of the all important aspects of bedroom design and one of the prime factors to consider when arranging and decorating a room. However, though it is a central factor it is still not easy to choose and there is a lot of thought behind which colours are best.

    Influence:

    Many people believe that the colours around us influence the way we act and think and that some are more suitable for certain areas than others. Of course, whether this is the case or not, specific tastes are also very important and can make all the difference between how content we feel in a room.

    For hotel rooms, designers tend to choose colours that reflect the appropriate mood of the room. This means that they pick colours and tones that encourage relaxation and to help provide calm and restful sleep. Make sure that you keep this in mind when choosing a colour for your bedrooms.

    Neutral Colours:

    Neutral colours are extremely common and also on trend at the moment. Shades of beige and cream are common, as they can be combined with a range of other colours. Other colours that promote peaceful and restful feeling are lavender, green and pink tones and even light blues.

    Blues are said to create calm, serenity and are even said to delay the onslaught of nightmares. Purple is associated with happiness as well as creativity. Each and every colour has certain things attributed to it so bear this in mind.

    Dark Colours:

    Dark or vivid colours are not recommended as they tend to make a room appear smaller and have certain moods associated with them that are removed from ideas of calm and relaxation. The same is true for dark tones of more vibrant colours; these can overpower the room and make it seem even smaller than it is. If you want to add a bright colour; paint all the walls neutral, while adding a bright colour to one wall of the room. This prevents it from becoming overwhelming and too vibrant. Other notable colours for bedrooms include gold, wine and slate brown these all will add to the feeling of ease and relaxation in the room making them ideal.

    Additional Items:

    Plants and other additions can be placed in the room to add a little extra colour. Also make sure that the colour of the bedroom walls complements the furniture this is important for balance and can make all the difference for the way the room feels.

    Colours can change a room completely and lay the foundation for a whole new appeal. On the other hand, they are also a great manner in which to inflict a slight change of feel. So, use them to your benefit and your room is sure to look excellent.
