    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.

    I remember the feeling coming up to the holidays. We wanted to go somewhere where we could really feel Christmas. Not the shopping and decorations, but the warmth. We were craving a heart-felt counterpoint to nearly everything in the media, a softness in people’s eyes, and a gentleness of...
    Alta is for skiers. This has been a record year for snowfall all across the Rockies. If you are into snow sports, God is smiling at you this month. With massive snow packs, some areas are predicted to be open into July. Even though we are well into February, there is...
    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...
    I didn’t mean to vacation alone in a honeymoon resort. I just wanted to go someplace far, far away — someplace I could never go to while working in finance where it wasn’t feasible to take large chunks of time off.And so it came to pass, after having left...
    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...
