Change is inevitable. Here are the latest developments in the Big Apple that occurred after the guide went to press.
Lend a hand with the olive harvest, hunt for truffles and munch on chestnuts, all from your fully furnished farmhouse starting from $1,709 for two full weeks near Siena.
Are European airlines just bashful? Several airlines are offering barn-burner fares for European travel through December, but they aren't tooting their horns about it. So it's good that we're here to give you the full scoop: If you want to nail down flights for fall travel, the fares are starting to arrive.
Two of our favorite tour operators, Gate 1 Travel and Go-Today.com, are competing to see which can offer the best trip to Athens this fall and winter, with the latter firm offering bargains this summer as well. Prices range as low as $599 out of New York.
These two fare sales came in just a few hours too late for our Wednesday column on domestic airfare sales. No worries, though, you've got until August 28 to purchase.
It's time to plan for fall foliage tours, and that means, most famously, New England on the east coast and the Rockies in the west. But don't forget Canada where the brilliance of leaf change is as splendiferous as it is farther south.

From S Smith: "Just returned from a long trip where we happened to stay at Country Inn and Suites in Atlanta and Portland Oregon. What a great experience! They are trying really hard to make their lodging very warm and inviting with lovely decor, fresh cookies at the desk, free paperback books and daily newspapers, coffee, tea and fruit anytime, a great hot breakfast included in the room rate. The Atlanta location had free drinks and snacks in the evening Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The staff were some of the friendliest we've encountered. Paid $69 in Atlanta and $75 in Portland."
From Jim Rotary: "My wife and I are interested in taking a river cruise in mid September but I have heard reports of the drought causing problems of low water levels on the rivers. The cruise company I have talked to did not mention anything about it. Can anyone update me?"
From Ralph Butera: "I still use the AAA traveler's checks. I just returned from three weeks in Italy. the Banco di roma was the cheapest to exchange. The Banco Nazionale di Lavoro would cheaply cash the checks in Perugia and not at all in Roma. The most expensive bank was the Banco di Toscano. Their fees were like loan sharks. I only went there once. On a previous trip my son's friend had no luck using his bank card in Italy or Switzerland. This is why I still use the traveler's checks."
From Roy Knoedler: "Our family of 5 ranging in age from 58 to 25 just returned from Peru and a 4 day trek to Machu Picchu. We wanted to express how pleased we were with the Tucan Tours staff and arrangements. Tucan is an Australian based company and we were the only Americans in our groupl. We booked it through Adventure Travel in San Francisco and everything from the flight arrangements to the hotels before and after ther trek, to the tour itself with a great crew of porters cooks and guides went well."
From Lisa Dai: "We were at this fine resort May 15-May 24th. Wed the 17th We both fell in love with Jamaica and its people thanks to Couples. Our wedding was storybook and would recommend the resort highly. Here's our story and tips."
