Because travel for pleasure doesn't have to end with the onset of autumn, we continue our virtual tour through individual countries via photographs.  Following Russia, which we featured last week, we continue this week with a visit to Canada, another spectacular and multicultural country, this one with two official languages.

Last week we re-started our regular fortnightly bulletin of festivals around the world. Don't miss the most engaging events from the fields of music, dance, film, and many others.  The following events are scheduled for the second half of September.

Following up on our summer series of the best movies from past decades, it is time to return to our customary, thematic approach to movies. Today we start with films that capture the environment of the courtroom, whether these are based on true stories or are fictional.

The days are getting shorter, so no wonder people are surrounding themselves with beautiful and colourful decorations. Those who have the luxury of having a garden or a balcony will appreciate a few planting tips, before winter takes over.  Others will appreciate new ideas for interior decoration, on windows or doors. Check out our gallery.

Moving on from Vietnam - our destination last week - we travel north to visit the largest country in the world, covering an incredible 11 time zones, where we will enjoy a rich history and a landscape filled with contrast. Visit Russia.

If you utterly love summer, then the upcoming autumn will be a real setback. Fortunately, tourism is on the rise, and sunny destinations are within reach. Where to travel to extend the summer? Check out our gallery.
