Travel

AGEIST travels take you out in the world to seek, see, participate, and experience with curiosity and a genuine sense of adventure. We aim for first dibs exclusives–experiences we get to before anyone else and stories that take you deeper into a place or get under its skin in a new way. We are about experiences more than hotels or shops, but that said, our contributors have exquisite taste. We promise to steer you well.

Really? Where were you?Grace...

Greek island life is all about escape: eating … drinking … napping on the beach. And then there’s Naxos, Greece. The largest of the Cycladic island chain sits between its popular cousins, Mykonos and Paros. Its splendors range from Mt. Zeus to one of the most sought-after beaches in...

We’re fans of the less-trodden areas of California: the Mojave Desert; the Esalen Institue at Big Sur and, recently, The Sea Ranch. First settled by hardy Germans in the mid 19th century, Sea Ranch was home to livestock ranchers and farmers for more than a century, with alternating owners from different...
