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.

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...
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...
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...

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...
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 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...
The motorcycle offroad traveler, and AGEIST profile Colin Evans, is currently riding through Australia.

Our highly-mobile travel contributor Grace Yang just returned from a road-less-traveled exploration of Peru. On the itinerary were mummy viewing, checking out Kuélap — the alternative to Machu Picchu, doing a stint at a reforestation project, finishing up in the hipster quarter of Lima. Ageist: Mummies? Really? Where were you?Grace...

Sea Ranch

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...
