the holding pattern

The last time I had a chance to restock my supply of conditioner from a hotel shower it was still winter. I haven’t enjoyed my regular on-the-road morning meal of two English Breakfast teas and a blueberry scone from Starbucks since 2019. It’s been so long, in fact, since I’ve even set foot in my second home—the United Club—that I’ve lost my frequent-flier card. Which doesn’t matter a huge amount since United has lost so many of its frequent flights that, its agents tell me, it won’t be able to replace any card any time soon. What does a lifelong traveler do in a world without travel? In this prolonged season of the virus, hundreds of millions have suffered much more than I have. But still, it’s been a curious no-man’s-land…

from countryside to coast, a low-key route to the riviera

Travelers f lock to the South of France for its glowing blue waters, but they make a mistake in skipping the region’s inland offerings. Start in the medieval towns surrounding Mont Ventoux, 37 miles northeast of Avignon, basing yourself at the fortress-like Crillon le Brave, set in the ancient cobblestone village of the same name. From there, it’s easy to reach the fruity reds of Château de Saint Cosme and the Romanesque chapel in the walled village of Venasque. An hour south, stop for Cabernet blends and a picnic under the olive trees at the Domaine de Fontenille, an organic winery and hotel in the Luberon (book ahead). Past the plane trees is the wild southern tip of the Riviera, whose dramatic headlands and refreshingly unshowy scene make it an…

a perfect milestone trip

In this year of travel dreams deferred, few have gotten to take those big vacations that mark a life passage. But when the time comes to celebrate again, might I suggest this epic journey between Cuzco and Arequipa in Peru? I went last fall with two friends I’ve known for decades, one of whom was celebrating his 40th. We leaned into the romance of luxury train travel, putting on suits and ordering martinis before dinner and then heading out to the observation deck to take in the austere beauty of the Andean highlands and the lonely sound of the train clacking through them. There’s a lounge car with a piano player whose renditions of tunes by Billy Joel and Guns N’ Roses make for a hilarious contrast with the scenery.…

culture club

the musician the musician Moonchild Sanelly The blue-haired singer has performed as a member of Damon Albarn’s Africa Express and on Beyoncé’s visual album Black Is King. Her future ghetto funk and focus on body positivity and female sexual empowerment make her one of the most buzzed-about performers What’s music like right now in South Africa? It’s all dance dominated. The newest genre is Amapiano, which has followed Gqom, a raw electronic music style that emerged from Durban, and with it the aim is to flex, not sweat. It’s as if producers took Kwaito, a hip-hop-like phenomenon from 25 years ago, and remade it for today. It’s cool, slow, and bouncy. Gqom is still there too, of course, its hyped and energetic sound now conquering the world. South Africa is known for producing completely…

view from the top

In Rome I caught a train north. I was going to another Italy. I left behind all the familiar bits of the country one by one—Rome’s old Justinian walls, an Umbrian campanile above tiled roofs, Tuscan farmhouses adrift in olive groves, Brunelleschi’s dome in Florence. Somewhere near Bologna a man waited at a crossing with boxes of grapes piled atop his tiny van. Perhaps I dozed as we crossed the flatlands of the Po, with that hot slab of sun at the window. Because when I looked again, somewhere beyond Trentino, there were mountains, sheer precipices the color of ash, a strange, vertiginous new world. I sat up. Half-timbered houses clustered around needle-thin church spires. Men with scythes cut hay in high meadows. Castles with conical roofs sat astride spurs and paths…
