Crete becalmed, the island feels like 1970s.

The earliest international visitors to the Aegean island are in for a treat, says Amanda Dardanis. On Zorba’s Beach in Stavros, east of Chania, a life-sized Anthony Quinn stands frozen in an eternal syrtaki dance.

The beautiful corner of Britain in spring.

The beautiful corner of Britain, welcomes spring before the rest. What’s the collective noun for a group of daffodils?
