    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 big freeze When we first started AGEIST, one of the short-hand comments we frequently uttered to distinguish our group was an aversion to cruise ship vacations. Now, we're forced to admit, there are a few exceptions to this rule, and Antarctica is one of them. Thankfully, the "Opinionator" (and good...
    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...

    Shanghai

    As a well-traveled American, I had thought myself to be immune to wide-eyed urban experiences. Shanghai is next level: so new, so enormous, so full on, that nothing short of awe is appropriate. If you want to know how dated and last century we Americans are, go here to...
    When you're making your travel plans for 2019, make sure to add Hocking Hills, Ohio to your list. You probably haven't heard of Hocking Hills - "Southeastern Ohio's Scenic Wonderland" - or VallDal, Norway or Kalisada, Bali. But they were some of the hottest travel destinations in the world in 2018.We...
    Our view on the Greek islands is that it’s better to linger than to hop.That said, if you are inspired by our take on Naxos, this hop is a must: Koufonisia.We were invited by the super creative founders of Eros Keros to be their first guests, and,...
    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...

    Ruaha

    ruaha national park, tanzania One of the most intensely alive experiences I have ever had was walking in the bush in Africa. There is something about being way down on the food chain in a place filled with massive animals that focuses the mind in a way I haven't...
