Busy travellers have little free time in their schedules, so moments must be memorable.
CNN International’s new 30 minute travel show, ‘In 24 Hours’ descends on a vibrant city each month to experience a perfect day's down time.

For a presidential candidate who believes Washington "needs to drink more," Sen. Lindsey Graham got a good head start at CNN's Politics on Tap event Tuesday.
Graham got behind the bar, serving up beers in downtown Boulder, Colorado - the site of Wednesday's Republican debate - before sitting down with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash.
The setting was so informal, in fact, that Bash got Graham to play a popular bar game she sanitized as "date, marry, or make disappear forever," with Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina, and Sarah Palin as his choices.

Ben Carson denied Tuesday that he supports the redistribution of public funds to fund public education, despite comments in a 2014 interview that indicated otherwise.
"If you happen to be in an affluent community, there's a lot more money for the schools, better facilities, everything. All that does is perpetuate the situation," he said in an interview with Politico published in April 2014. "Wouldn't it make more sense to put the money in a pot and redistribute it throughout the country so that public schools are equal, whether you're in a poor area or a wealthy area?"
