Putting together our annual 100 issue is a highlight for the International Traveller team. It affords us real insight into what you, our readers, are thinking about, dreaming about, planning for. The final list that starts on page 63 is made up entirely of your suggestions for the 100 things you want to see and experience before you hit your own personal century, garnered from the question asked in our recent Reader’s Choice survey. The thing that always delights me when I go through these answers is just how invested you guys are in journeying around this globe of ours.

I’m from Argentina where ponchos are part of our heritage. Many families keep old ponchos that once belonged to a grandparent as keepsakes, or admire the traditional ponchos that the ‘gauchos’, Argentinean cowboys, have worn since before memory can recall.

The artisans we meet in the Puna region are always wearing ponchos for warmth and I’ve often thought: “Why not bring a…
