CONTRIBUTORS 1. Aatish Taseer THE WRITER AND THE WORLD (P. 98) The New York City–based author reread Aldous Huxley when researching his feature on the history of travel writing for T+L. “He really was such a beautiful writer and a great noticer,” Taseer says. “And a traveler of uncommon sensitivity.” The Twice-Born: Life and Death on the Ganges (Picador), Taseer’s latest book, is out now in paperback. 2. Bailey Rebecca Roberts MAUI: UPCOUNTRY MAGIC (P. 80) For our cover photographer, who was born and raised on Maui, in Hawaii, a stay at Malu Manu was by far the best part of the whole shoot. “The property sits in one of the most special areas of the island, and the experience provided there is unlike anything else,” she explains. “It is among the greatest under-the-radar spots that…

A GLOBETROTTER’S GUIDE TO THE LATEST IN TRAVEL 1. Embrace Wide-Open Spaces In the age of socially distant travel, the auto campground has new appeal. Here, a crop of drive-in properties where you can rent a trailer (or bring your own) to enjoy vintage vibes and plenty of breathing room. BY HANNAH WALHOUT RANGE VINTAGE TRAILER RESORT Bristol, Texas The area just south of Dallas is known for its wildflowers—and the newest place to enjoy the blooms is the Range, in the heart of bluebonnet country. The resort consists of six trailers with 1960s-inspired interiors, patios with propane firepits, and modern comforts like air-conditioning and Nespresso machines. (There are also 15 open sites with electricity and water hookups.) You can grab a Texas microbrew at the Airstream turned bar, but the ultimate luxury is space: stocked…

a cultural feast

TRAVELERS’ TALES, FROM NEAR AND FAR ONLY IN ITALY can you go looking for a museum and end up in a ham dungeon. I had driven through a raging storm in search of the Museum of Culatello, an institution devoted to the history of the country’s rarest prosciutto, situated inside Antica Corte Pallavicina (; doubles from $200; tasting menu $115), a 14th-century castle near the Po River. But when I arrived at the looming edifice in pounding rain and shouldered open a wooden door, not a soul was about. The castle’s shadowy interior had the air of an abandoned opera set, all ravishingly frescoed salons with antique chandeliers. Over rolling thunder I heard a sound from below, so I descended a stone staircase into sepulchral darkness. When my eyes adjusted, I found…

pride of place

OKAY, CAMERON, CLIMB into the box,” says our tour guide. My 15-year-old son, tall, Black, and curious, leaves my side and climbs into a six-by-two-by-two-foot suspended wooden bunk. I momentarily look away. We’re three hours south of Toronto in the Buxton National Historic Site & Museum, staring at a display that re-creates the cargo space of the ships that transported Africans into slavery. Our host, curator Shannon Prince, is a sixth-generation Canadian and the descendant of American slaves who fled Virginia and Tennessee to live as free people on this plot of land where we stand. She is asking Cameron to help her make a point. He and his 18-year-old brother can barely fit in the space, but it would have housed as many as six men and women, naked, sick, and…

all over the map

IT IS LATE, AND I AM sitting on the living room floor, surrounded by maps. Here is the oversize National Geographic Atlas of the World I sprang for in my twenties and lugged from apartment to apartment, then across the country. Flipping through the pages of this gigantic volume, I’m reminded that it doesn’t just include the whole Earth. There are surveys of the surfaces of the moon and Mars, too, plus the night skies of the Southern and Northern hemispheres. Beside the atlas are several much smaller books and brochures that I’ve collected from national and state parks, mostly in the western United States but some from farther afield. Alongside a map of Death Valley is one of Israel’s Makhtesh Ramon, an ancient crater caused by centuries of erosion. Within…

breathing new life into brasília

LÚCIO MONTIEL was the third child ever to be born in Brasília’s Base Hospital. It was 1960, and after four years of construction, the city had just formally opened as the center of Brazilian bureaucracy. Montiel’s parents, like so many others from across the country, had chosen to arrive early, leaving the then-capital, Rio de Janeiro, to take part in this wildly optimistic experiment—a Modernist fantasia of a city willed into existence by the leftist president Juscelino Kubitschek, the architect Oscar Niemeyer, and the visionary city planner Lúcio Costa, the man for whom Montiel was named. Today, Montiel works as a guide for the city and surrounding region. He met me on a bright blue morning in February, before the pandemic had hit Brazil, at the recently opened B Hotel (;…
