editor’s letter

The approach of a new year is like a reset button when it comes to travel. Instead of facing an ending, and with it the prospect of running out of time to fit in a journey here or whistlestop there, a crisp new calendar allows time for endless new adventures. All you have to do is fill it with possibilities. And that’s where we can help you. In this issue we have gathered together a year’s worth of inspiration: the countries, cities and experiences both near and far we believe will best sate the appetite of even the most hungry of travellers. From the unaffected, dramatic beauty of the Faroe Islands (page 112) to the compelling ghost villages of Chernobyl and its surrounds (page 72) to the delights of France’s Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region…

TRUNK (HOUSE), Tokyo Reflecting Tokyo’s cutting-edge style, TRUNK (HOUSE) is a quirkily unique offering: a one-bedroom property for up to four guests that delivers a ‘hyperlocal’ experience while surrounded by commissioned artworks from seven local and international artists, and design pieces by the likes of Jean Prouvé and Stephen Kenn. The overall TRUNK (HOUSE) concept references the salons that proliferated in the city during the 17th and 18th centuries, where artists and academics would come together to talk and debate late into the night. trunk-house.com THE WEST HOLLYWOOD EDITION Comprising 140 guest rooms, 48 suites and two penthouses, The West Hollywood EDITION, a collab between rock-star hotelier Ian Schrager and Marriott International, has a polished, luxe outlook befitting its high-profile location in the sceney WeHo neighbourhood.

hawai‘i volcanoes national park

What other job do you turn up to only to find that your place of work has largely been destroyed… by lava? And it was kind of expected. Pity the rangers of one of Hawai‘i’s five national parks, who experienced just that in 2018. Hawai‘i’s Volcanoes National Park changed dramatically from May until August that year when one of the most active volcanoes in the world, Kīlauea, erupted and transformed not only the national park but the island of Hawai‘i itself. Now that the island is recovering, roads have been rebuilt and it’s safe to return, it’s the perfect time to visit this iconic spot that runs from the Pacific to the summit of Mauna Loa at 4168 metres: home to, among other things, meat-eating caterpillars and geology forged anew in…
