editor’s letter

I have no idea where my anxiety and anger have gone, but it’s become an issue. One minute you’re as sharp as a paper cut, the next as jolly and round as a cantaloupe. Obviously I wanted them gone, my twin devil spawn, what with the sleep deprivation and self-flagellation and horror at the world and… But the thing is, now I can hardly even finish this sentence because I have paused to listen to the extraordinary birdsong outside my window. And I’m not even joking. Overnight I have become an amoeba, a slack-jawed slice of flotsam. It used to be that I had an A-quality shitshow going on in my head. Now I’m just excited about using my new pen. The other day I heard this woman laughing, I mean…

Hilary Swank Globetrotter (p118) ‘It’s not technically food, but it’s the best coffee I’ve ever had. It was at this café called Tell Henry in Adelaide when I was working in Australia. I don’t like to drink out of to-go cups so they’d give me the most delicious cappuccino in a porcelain mug that I’d bring back the next day.’ Actor Hilary is a two-time Oscar winner Agyness Deyn Bed-hopping (p58) ‘Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Upstate New York is where my husband Joel sneakily takes me to on mega-special occasions. It’s set on a working farm and you eat straight from field to table. We were even invited to eat one course in the bustling kitchen.’Agyness recently starred in BBC drama ‘Hard Sun’ Richard Godwin Writer, Corsica (p43) ‘The perfect pub, George Orwell concluded, does not…

ALL THAT’S NEW AND GROUND-BREAKING IN TRAVEL THE IN-DEMAND ARCHITECTS K-Studio Since it opened on Mykonos in 2015, Scorpios has changed the go-to aesthetic of the Greek islands from classic whitewash to acres of bleached wood and rattan. Dimitris and Konstantinos Karampatakis of K-Studio in Athens were behind the natural, hautehippie style. Last year they translated it into Isola Beach Club on Crete and this summer are racking up more must-see projects with Canaves Oia Epitome and Bellonias Villas on Santorini. THE SMARTEST NEW BOAT Alexa J When Russian interior designer Veronika Blomgren decided to create her dream yacht, she had zero sailing experience, didn’t dive, and was a little scared of the sea. That didn’t stop her conjuring up one of most indulgent vessels afloat, the gorgeously all-white, one-cabin Alexa, which island-hops around Indonesia…

If you choose your summer getaway based purely on the hours of sunlight, the Arctic will come up trumps. But it’s not just the allure of bright nights and days blurring into one that is drawing travellers north and resetting their compasses. A growing collection of small Nordic festivals in and around the Arctic Circle are enticing authors, artists and filmmakers to this otherworldly region where, despite the threat from climate change, indigenous Sami and Inuit culture is flourishing again. MUSIC IN THE FAROE ISLANDS With both the North Atlantic and the islands’ incredible grassy peaks in sight, artists at G! Festival have the unenviable task of competing with the scenery for attention. This year, Rag’n’Bone Man, Harlem Gospel Choir and hometown star Eivør take to the stage in the remote Faroe…

Lisbon is rivalling Berlin with its thriving art scene housed in once-abandoned factories or shipping containers, experimental chefs and funky co-working spaces. Comporta is still Europe’s hippest beach, the laid-back, under-the-radar alternative to ramped-up Ibiza and Mykonos. And Porto is on the rise, filled with returning creatives opening restaurants, guesthouses and design stores. Sisters Joana and Sofia Lacerda are the duo behind JO&SO, the latest, most insider online guide to Portugal’s coolest hotels. They grew up in Porto’s seafront neighbourhood of Foz do Douro. ‘Nowadays, Joana is in Lisbon and I’m in London so we meet up when travelling,’ says Sofia. ‘We love to seek out characterful places to stay, and our friends were always asking us for recommendations. JO&SO grew organically from there, collecting our favourite spots in Portugal.’…
