I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

'Working from home is having an adverse effect on your health' – our work expert responds

Our careers expert – and you the readers – help an employee stressed out with company cuts, and a parent seeking the best path for their son

Six years ago I moved from an office-based job to work for a big IT company. Since the role involved a lot of travel to meet customers, we agreed that I would be home-based. I did a lot of travelling, but the work-life balance of usually being at home on Fridays suited me well.

Aziz Ansari: ‘I try to write political material … then get tired of it’

Considering the comedian’s career-cementing anti-Trump monologue on Saturday Night Live, the new season of Master of None is less topical than expected. What is he scared of?

Aziz Ansari is just back from lunch. He went to a hip udon noodle place he found right round the corner from the Soho hotel where we’re meeting. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and yet he only managed the soup. Anyone familiar with Ansari’s tummy-rumbling Netflix show Master of None will immediately realise the import of this news: Aziz Ansari is unwell. His assistant later confirms that jet lag has got the better of him, and certainly the Ansari half-slumped on the sofa in front of me is a lot less Tiggerish than the one who wowed with his Saturday Night Live opening monologue the morning after Trump’s inauguration. “I’ve never felt more pressure before any standup I’ve ever done,” he recalls. “Even friends of mine were like: ‘Man, that’s gonna be a tough gig, you’d better come correct!’ y’know? But I feel like I pulled it off.”

Croatia’s remotest island

After canoeing round deserted coves and spearfishing with the lighthouse keeper, Kevin Rushby is tempted to stay on beautiful Lastovo island forever

Mladin, keeper of the lighthouse, was outside his cottage, cleaning his speargun. It was a beautiful scene: rocky headlands and blue sea, deep and mysterious. Mladin pointed to the bay below. “In spring, I’ve seen dolphins herd thousands of fish in there and then go crazy eating them.”

The lighthouse, Struga, sits on cliffs at the end of a narrow peninsula that curves around the bay, almost separated from the rest of the island by a deep, dark sea-filled gorge.

We will all pay the price for our financial illiteracy

An OECD study on young people’s grasp of money issues around the world serves as a wake-up call not just for parents and schools, but also for regulators

One in five people are financially illiterate, incapable of grasping basic shopping conundrums – such as, is that nine-pack of loo roll better value than two four-packs? In a world of ever more complex financial products, it’s never been a better time for companies to rip people off because, frankly, very large numbers of us are rather dim with numbers.

A fascinating study on financial literacy was issued by the OECD this week, comparing financial literacy around the world, using the same Pisa scoring system that ranks abilities in reading and maths. It was focused on 15-year-olds in 15 countries, so it’s not about adults, but my guess is that most people’s literacy at 50 isn’t much better than at 15. It asked some maths-style questions – comparing the cost of loose tomatoes with boxed ones, and checking an invoice for accuracy – but also explored more modern issues around money, such as identifying if that email from your bank is a scam, and the factors that go into insurance costs for a first moped.

Could you cut out plastic from your weekly shop? One family tried
With fruit sold in tubs, chicken in trays – and remote Pacific islands awash in plastic debris – the McCreadies found the plastic challenge tough

The grotesque images of rubbish-strewn Henderson Island, a remote and uninhabited Pacific coral atoll where millions of tonnes of plastic waste have washed up, sent shockwaves around the world. The sheer volume of plastics escaping into the environment mean that by 2050 there could be more plastic in our seas than fish. But how easily could we cut plastic out of our daily lives?

In June the Marine Conservation Society will launch its “plastic challenge”, asking us to give up single-use plastic for a day, a week or even the whole month. Guardian Money asked one Yorkshire family to track their plastic use for a week, then try the following week to cut it out as much as possible. The results indicate by how much we can reduce our plastic footprint – but also show the realistic limits to slashing our use, even among those keen to be as eco-friendly as possible.
