One of the things I love most about travelling is the opportunity to witness the collision of different cultures, seeing something created which is not only new but brilliant. Hoshinoya Bali encompasses that phenomenon completely: the head of this extraordinary resort hotel is in Japan, but its feet are embedded in the earth of Indonesia’s most beguiling island, Bali. The designers have […]

Letter from Asia Bhutan

Greetings! I have arrived in the Land of the Thunder Dragon. High in the Himalayan Mountains, where the peaks are so tall their summits seem to get lost in the heavens, I have come in search of peace and oneness with nature.

Letter from Asia – India

I followed an elephant down the road, and stopped to chat with his mahout.In a palace I was greeted by a genuine princess, and we drank tea on the terrace while peacocks strutted by. Priests garlanded with marigolds set tea lights adrift on the lake after […]

Letter from North America: CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

The air is crisper and the playful days of summer have become recent memories. I am more than happy to warm up to autumn and all the fun of the season. Writing you from Chicago, where—in a few months, things will definitely be a bit colder. The coolest thing about this city is how walkable […]
