THE WORLD IS CALLING 

The first moment you dare step outside of the place you call home—that’s the first moment you finally experience what it means to truly live. Travel is the great escape, the true adventure, and the one thing that forever opens our minds to the possibility of everything. 

This month as we literally show you the world, our fundamental message is one of curiosity. While living in our cities is wonderful and filled with rich culture, there is nothing quite like going someplace different and, for a while, allowing yourself to see the world in a whimsical way. Whether you fly to Ireland to see the greenest technicolor greens, tackle the red terrain of Arizona, learn the history of cannabis while in Spain, sleep in a luxurious treehouse in the Mexican jungle, stumble upon a mysterious horizon, dance along an unnamed river, or wander off until you’re sufficiently and happily lost, the only limit to what’s possible is how far you’re willing to travel. 

Throughout history, from Columbus to Magellan to the Wright Brothers and Amelia Earhart, something deep within us longs to discover people and places we’ve not yet seen or met. We get on buses, trains, planes and ships hoping they’ll take us somewhere far more exciting than our everyday lives. Much like the way Alice in Wonderland pushed the boundaries of perspective and self-awareness, leaving the comforts of home can be the most life-changing and intellectually stimulating risk you ever take. 

I encourage you to engage in more local activities, enjoy a music festival, take an art class, and dare you to grow your own cannabis—but more than that, I hope you will thumb through the adventures of this issue and feel that nagging desire to pack a bag, throw caution to the wind, and find a destiny all your own. 

“In the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.” –Jack Kerouac 

Pay close attention… The world is calling.
