    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.

    As an example of the sort of witty, insightful, and altogether fresh thinking which makes the Monocle Quality of Life Conference so energizing, we are reprinting Monocle editor Andrew Tuck's recent missive on his adventures in the sharing economy.

    Digital has a way of pushing the prices of everything down. Phone calls used to cost real money. Photographic imagery used to be highly priced and bespoke. We used to buy music; now it’s an option, not a requirement.These easily digitized realms were the low-hanging fruit. Now we are...
    AGEIST is located in one of the most difficult to understand cities in the world: Los Angeles. It’s a place where the best Chinese may be an obscure Szechuan place in a strip mall in the Valley, or the coolest pizza place is hidden down a blind alley in...

    As a stress therapist, I help people understand how our felt senses lie at the root of our emotions.  When we feel an emotion — like elation, for example — the key is to find where you're feeling this emotion and to ask yourself “How, do I actually know...
    I have been looking at and reading about Hôtel Les Roches Rouges for a couple of years, but it has never worked out to stay there. Last year the credit card points were all lined up, the train tickets from Paris all set, and then something came up which made...
    We all have our travel heroes — the people who seem to be able to navigate the world with ease, thrive in any culture they visit, and find the most beautiful, interesting, and special things/experiences along the way. Heidi Kelso is this for us: an intrepid traveler, top-of-her-game entertainment...
    Dreaming up your next trip is almost as fun as traveling itself.It is where you cast your desires forward, follow a thread of curiosity, and sometimes project outwardly an inward version of yourself that may otherwise go ignored — how you want to feel, whose footsteps you want to...
    The iPhone is a tremendous image-recording device, but perhaps you would like to have a better camera on your trip. What camera should you bring?The best idea is to take the least amount of stuff you can. The worst thing is to be massively jet lagged and puzzling over...
