Where does your mind wander when you close your eyes and imagine a place where you are relaxed, engaged and enlivened? Is it a soft sandy beach, dozing under an umbrella? Are you an active vacationer like me, up at sunrise to join a yoga class or renting a fat tire bike to explore a snowy path? Perhaps exploring a new climate, culture and cuisine ticks all the boxes for you.
As Americans and Atlantans, living in the home to the world's busiest airport, dreamy destinations are at our doorstep. For our EXPLORE issue, we wanted to take you away, far away and inspire you to find your next vacation while encouraging you to dream big.
