WELL: Editor’s Note Issue 3

Our summer issue, WELL, is predicated on the idea that the summer is a time to recharge. We take vacations, we spend time outdoors and with our families. We focus on “happy.” When I think of well being, I tend to think of it as a holistic system: personal health is inextricably intertwined with mental health, community health, and the health of the planet. I love to read stories, articles, blogs, and books that plumb the depths of these connections. ...

Go: Editor’s Note Issue 2

By Adria Carey Perez Are there any paths not beaten? I tend to think of these paths as experiences that are unique–that you didn’t read about in the guidebook, and that usually involve a chance encounter with a person or a wrong turn on the way to the restaurant.

Adria, Editor-in-Chief

I was born with wanderlust in my soul, fostered by a nomadic childhood. I decided to move my own family to the UK in 2013, and my husband, three children, and I spent three years exploring as many corners of its four nations as possible, as well as crisscrossing Europe by boat, plane, train, and automobile. Now back on home soil, I travel, and write about travel, as much as possible to recapture the spirit of adventure I experienced as ...
