Tag: DeparturesView All Tags
Long ago, while working at as a grunt at a magazine, I read a post on my favorite travel blog, asking for writers to help cover Amazing Race 10. A reality series and a year later, the boss asked me if I wanted to take over as editor. Now, nearly 17 months later, I'm finally going on a trip I won't have to write about as it happens.
I'm headed to Chile for a bit and then Easter Island, where the stone heads are large, the afternoons hot and the internet connections sketchy. I may not even check my email for days. It should be nice.
Eventually, I'll come back, and I'll probably keep blogging about travel, either here on Jaunted or over here. (Note to you commissioning editors: This is my email address.) Maybe I'll finally write that guidebook to Uruguay, the one that's desperately needed and that's undoubtedly bound for commercial failure. Maybe Jason Wilson will hire me to be his staff aguardiente aficionado at Table Matters. Or maybe I'll fix up an old sailboat and cruise Cayuga Lake this summer. I really haven't figured out what's next yet, so if you have a good idea, send me an email!
Thanks for all the tips, all the emails, all the comments, and most of all, thanks for reading.

We finally got around to the latest issue of Departures, and it's jam-packed with the usual hot (and haute) destinations and gear. And though we're already getting over Miami Beach, Craig Robins' article on the topic snagged our attention. It's all about Art Basel: the more-or-less week long excuse to slink around Miami gulping canapes and scoping modern art.
Since the online version is only available to American Express Platinum and Centurion cardholders, we'll have to fill you in on the best bits. First, concentrate your efforts on the Design District, slipping over to South Beach when the need arises. (The Moore Space Loft has your art and Elements has your lunch.) Make sure you visit Design Miami, being hosted at the Moore Building and then skip to some of the smaller nearby galleries. Finally, don't miss the Saturday night block party "Art Loves Design." Who knows, a week of this, and we might fall back in love with Miami.
