By Pawel Goraj and Anita Kobylinska GDANSK/GRZECHOTKI (Reuters) – Thousands of England and Belgium soccer fans flocked into Russia’s western enclave of Kaliningrad on Thursday, ahead of the final Group G World Cup clash between the two football-mad nations. Around 50 coaches packed with fans had crossed the border from Poland by midday, its border agency said, as many fans had chosen Poland’s historic Baltic Sea port as a base due to sky high prices in Russia. England fans predicted there would be few surprises in store as many of the Belgian stars play their club football in the English Premiership, including Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) and Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City). “I think their team probably has better players than ours, but it’s a team game, so we’ll see what happens,” said Michael Mitchell from the northern English city of Newcastle. Whichever side comes second would play two of the three knockout … [Read more...] about English, Belgian fans flock from Poland to World Cup clash in Kaliningrad
Carol Cain Free Press Business Columnist Published 12:25 p.m. UTC Jun 3, 2018 When Anna Wintour, the iconic Vogue magazine editor, wanted to surprise celebrities at the recent Metropolitan Museum of Arts Gala, she turned to a Northville travel agency with connections to the Vatican. John Hale, president of Corporate Travel Services and father of five, isn’t exactly into pop culture or fashion. His focus is of a higher calling as he helps people, organizations and sometimes choirs — including the Sistine Chapel Choir — arrange destination trips, tours and excursions. Hale, who is Catholic, and his wife, Kristan Hale, are both patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums, Michigan Chapter, and on the board of the Michigan Opera Theatre. Wintour has been the force behind Met Gala — which is sort of like the Oscars for those in the fashion world — since 1995. It is an annual fundraiser oozing in couture fashion and surprise … [Read more...] about Why Northville travel agent vowed secrecy to fashion icon

Viet Nam News by Nguyễn Khánh Chi A recent lunch date with my old friends from university turned into a stirring round-table discussion when one friend proposed that we all make a plan to travel together. As we envisioned a change of pace, time together and the chance to explore, everyone seemed excited—but one woman looked a bit concerned. “Does that mean we leave our kids and husband at home?” she asked in a low voice. “Yes!” “Yep!” “Why not?” the others jumped in. Vietnamese traditional family values dating back to the feudal period stipulate that housework is women’s responsibility. This view is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it leads to celebrations of Vietnamese women’s dedication and hard work for their families. On the other, it punishes Vietnamese women who dare to assert some purpose or passion in life outside of their home. The persistence of this view makes it hard for many women to … [Read more...] about Women take a break from family for travel: Why not?
