Vol. 30: The Health Issue

ANDALUSIA • JAPAN • NEPAL • PORTLAND, OREGON • PUGLIA • WEST SWEDEN

While you can't solve the ills of society or your personal struggles with a holiday any more than you can with a bubble bath or a green juice, travel does afford us the opportunity to temporarily step outside of ourselves, examine the strains of our everyday existence and reclaim some balance in untarnished surroundings.

The Health Issue is our spring spin on the concept of well being travel and swaps boot camp for forest bathing, collagen smoothies for craft beer and "wellness" for good health. Articles include a horse-whispering retreat in the Andalusian hills; Otegha Uwagba's search for peace in the lesser-known Japanese prefecture of Nagano; a novice jogger's experiences on a running retreat in Oaxaca; a hilarious Swiss spa review by Raven Smith; encounters with punk-rock farmers and creatives in Portland, Oregon; and other well being-inspired journeys in Nepal, West Sweden, Puglia, Austria and the British countryside.
