editor’s note by george!

One of the goals of National Geographic is to inspire the explorer in everyone. We chase big questions, challenge accepted beliefs, and push the boundaries of our knowledge of the world. Circling the globe in search of understanding makes a lot of sense not just for scientists and photographers, but for mere mortals, as well. While on a National Geographic Expeditions trip in the Seychelles (an Indian Ocean archipelago roughly 932 miles off the coast of East Africa), I had the chance to snorkel with Enric Sala, a marine ecologist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, who is one of the leaders of our marine conservation work. Swimming with Sala is sort of like painting with Picasso or volleying with Venus Williams—an opportunity to be schooled in the best of ways. With…

amazing escape

There’s a place in the shadow of the Andes where people go to get lost. Laberinto Patagonia, near Argentina’s tiny village of El Hoyo, is one of South America’s largest mazes. Built by Argentine couple Doris Romera and Claudio Levi using sacred geometry and 2,100 cypress trees, the two-acre site lies atop a knoll hemmed by native forests within a fertile valley fed by the waters of the Epuyén River. Since getting lost is one of the chief reasons to travel, I was immediately drawn to the idea of spending an afternoon in the crisp mountain air, wandering the serpentine alleyways, where you can sometimes spot darting hares or black-faced ibis. Nine branching paths offer twists and turns, crossroads, and dead ends. The one that leads to the exit perpetually changes…

how to meet a mermaid

A lesser known cousin of the manatee, the dugong (Malay for “lady of the sea”) is said to have inspired ancient mermaid legends. “Seeing dugongs in the wild is an extremely special experience,” says environmental scientist Erina Molina, who got hooked on life under the sea when she snorkeled for the first time at age 15. Now, a decade later, this National Geographic explorer is dedicated to preserving the wonders of the marine world; she enlists fishers of the Philippines to help track dugongs. Here she shares tips on how to encounter this vulnerable herbivore. 1 Where to Go Molina recommends two spots where it’s very likely for snorkelers and divers to come face to face with dugongs. In the crystalline waters of Calauit Island, Philippines, locals lead conservation-minded tours that often…

city guide new orleans

New Orleans sure knows how to throw itself a party. Marking its 300th birthday in 2018, this city founded by the French has stocked the bar with Sazerac and kept the king cake coming for the merrymakers flocking here to explore and to celebrate. Neighborhoods such as Riverbend, Algiers, and Mid-City burble with fresh energy. The bike-share program Blue Bikes pairs with the city’s flat-as-a-bar-top terrain to make an afternoon’s pedal under the shade of live oaks—and through history—a winning prospect. Hop off at Magazine Street for finders-keepers shopping (beaded clutches, vintage enamelware) and let your appetite guide you to restaurants, such as Indian-themed Saffron NOLA, that showcase the many cuisines in this vibrant city. Grab a fork and raise a glass. On its birthday New Orleans is a gift…

shaken and stirred

Cocktails are to New Orleans as red beans are to rice: the perfect local pairing. Today’s trends turn to fresh takes on classic tipples. At the breezy COMPÈRE LAPIN, a Caribbean restaurant in the Warehouse District, bartender Abigail Gullo sends spirits soaring with her saucy Sazerac and anecdotes of the drink’s place in local lore. “It is New Orleans in a glass,” she says. The French Quarter’s ARNAUD’S FRENCH 75 shakes up gin fizzes as exciting as a first kiss. At MANOLITO, bartender Chris Hannah mixes a range of daiquiris; try his jazz daiquiri, a potion of rum, crème de cacao, and coffee. “Old cocktails have stories,” Hannah observes, “and new ones better, as well.” The cocktail menu is rum-centric at CANE & TABLE, also in the French Quarter, overseen…
