This pool, one of four at Bahia Vik, in José Ignacio, Uruguay, looks out over extensive sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean.ALL OF US WHO LOVE to travel know that there are few better ways to commemorate special occasions or moments in life. Whether we’re celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and honeymoons, marking milestones like job changes, or even grieving, travel lets us step outside of our regular schedules and routines, connect with others (and ourselves), and be reminded of the joy that comes from opening our eyes to the world around us.T+L’s November issue has historically included a collection of “trips of a lifetime,” those extra-special journeys you probably don’t undertake more than once a year—or even once a decade—whose infrequency makes them all the more memorable. This time, we decided…

from my travels

After a business trip to Buenos Aires earlier this year, Charles and I hopped over to the Uruguayan beach town of José Ignacio. It wasn’t the height of summer, but I love being by the sea in any season, and it was a blissfully quiet time to experience the charm of the place. We stayed at Bahia Vik (vikretreats.com; doubles from $850), a collection of sleek bungalows right on the sand owned by Alex and Carrie Vik, who have three properties in the area. (Estancia Vik, a traditional ranch a few minutes inland, was closed for the season when we were there, but we checked it out, and it’s spectacular, perfect for those who enjoy a pastoral atmosphere and don’t mind having to drive to the beach.) The Vik properties all…

No. 1 After a two-year hiatus, a beloved New Zealand railway is back in action.KiwiRail’s Coastal Pacific train has been closed since 2016, when the Kaikoura earthquake caused severe damage to the line. The route finally reopens in early December, departing daily through the end of April—New Zealand’s summer months. This epic 216-mile ride links Christchurch and the beach town of Picton—a six-hour scenic journey that meanders along the coastline between the mountains and the sea. From Picton, hop on the ferry and connect to the Northern Explorer train, which goes all the way to Auckland. It’s one of the best—and most beautiful—ways to see the diversity of the Kiwi countryside. greatjourneysofnz.co.nz.The new Pavilions complex at Glenstone, a private art museum in Maryland.No. 2 The expanded home of one of America’s finest…
