Suitcase Magazine Volume 36 (the Discovery Issue) is now available on loremnotipsum.com. Is there anything more human than the urge to explore? Whether we’re boarding boats, seeking out new art spaces or searching within ourselves on a journey of introspection, it’s this desire that cements our uniqueness.
In the latest issue of SUITCASE, we discover what matters by treading pastures new while staying alive to what’s closer to home. From the island culture of Vanuatu, where South Pacific traditions are staying strong, to contemporary life in vibrant, outdoorsy Valencia – this year’s World Design Capital – Volume 36: Discovery seeks out the unexpected stories in even the most obvious places. We reveal the stark beauty of Senegal’s Sine-Saloum Delta, take you down a newly opened trail that follows an ancient trading route in Bhutan, explore coastal adventures in the UK and invite you to meet three of Africa’s greatest new-gen female eco-campaigners, as well as the urban artisans crafting tableware for some of the world’s best restaurants. In Paris, meanwhile, we turn our perspective of the City of Light on its head by joining a parkour collective as they leap and cartwheel across its rooftops.
All of which goes to prove that even the most mapped places in the world can still have the power to surprise.
Suitcase Magazine Volume 36 takes you to Paris, Valencia, Mexico, United Kingdom, Senegal and Bhutan.
Suitcase Magazine aims to inspire, helping people to discover global destinations and cultures beyond the standard tourist path. Through a quarterly print magazine, daily updated website, weekly newsletter and experiential events, we hope to change the way you travel, with an ultimate aim of bridging cultures and connecting people. As a travel brand, we’re frequently asked how we balance a thirst for exploration with the negative impact that travel has on the planet. Be it climate change from carbon emissions or the pressures of overtourism, the detrimental effects of globetrotting are undeniable. So, should we all stop travelling? Making up over 10 per cent of global GDP and contributing to almost 320 million jobs, tourism is a lifeline for many people and communities, and to stop travelling completely would have differently devastating effects the world over. In an increasingly polarised world, it is perhaps more important than ever to explore new places. Of course, many travel to visit family and friends too. But a careful, considered approach to the trips we do decide to take is paramount. At Suitcase, our intention has always been to provide our readers with thoughtful, informed recommendations, encouraging slower and more mindful travel. We hope we help you to travel better, and always love hearing your stories from around the world.
