business traveller

Each year, our Business Traveller special takes a good, hard look at how we balance our work and travel. We’ve spoken to founders of startups in the travel space, to working parents, to women entrepreneurs and those who are as obsessed with frequent-flier miles as they are with their day jobs. Which airlines are best for long-haul flights when you have to head straight to a meeting? What should you pack? From sturdy but stylish luggage to crease-free clothing and sexy gadgets, we’ve shared our best secrets with you.

imbibing beirut

WE HAVE TRAVELLED TOGETHER SINCE WE were 15 and have never liked a place with the same intensity—save for Beirut. It was 2012, over two decades after Lebanon’s devastating civil war. My five best friends from boarding school and I were at a downtown café, crunching on deliciously fresh fattoush while people around us spoke in a medley of Arabic, French and English.

We hadn’t yet spent an entire day here, but each of us was already transfixed by Beirut’s fluid identity. A local stopped by our table to say that as per Lebanese folklore, the city has been rebuilt seven times in its 5,000-year history.…
