TAKE A SECOND TO STUDY THE ABOVE PICTURE OF BURNING MAN. As with all truly inspirational experiences, Burning Man is inseparable from the terrain itself. It could only happen there on the playa. The dust storms, the endless horizon: the landscape becomes more than just the setting of the story. It’s alive, present, almost like its own character.
It’s in this spirit that we rounded up these most inspiring places for travel in 2017. Our contributors, our editorial, the new community of users at our new app travelstoke: together we chose places that, like the playa, can redefine your sense of the world.
We wish everyone happy and fearless travels in the year ahead. See you out there!
