The new issue of Vacations & Travel magazine has hit the stands, with its wintery and welcoming front cover image of the St. Regis Deer Valley inviting you to snuggle up and get cosy with 250 pages of travel inspiration.
We bring you some of the top ski resorts from around the world; from snow temples and onsens in Japan and magical winter villages in Innsbruck, to serious terrain, nightlife, and family friendly snowcations in the USA that are sure to impress even the most discerning snow bunnies.
After the snow, we take you to the sea for a balanced mix of luxury cruising followed by expedition cruise adventures, offering once-in-a-lifetime experiences through Antarctica, the Pacific, and our very own Kimberley.
For those that prefer the wide open road to the sea and snow, we finally tick the quintessential all-American road trip off our bucket list, and explore the great land through iconic highways, dynamic cityscapes, and jagged coastlines.
We then head east to South Korea to check how preparations are coming along for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, and stop by Japan to get traditional in our very own version of Memoirs of a Geisha.
Closer to home, we spoil you with luxurious indulgences and premium experiences in New Zealand's Bay of Islands, and tug at your heart strings with nostalgic images of the Australian outback, telling the story of its people and sunburnt landscapes through the camera lens.
Our winter issue of Vacations & Travel magazine wouldn't be complete without a good dose of dining, and on the menu we tease your tastebuds with innovative Peruvian delicacies in Lima, fresh market finds in New Caledonia, fine dining in Fiji and take you on a food adventure through the streets of Macau that will leave you wanting more.
Full of essential holiday ideas and information, we keep you up to date with the latest news in spas, hotels, cruising, travel books, restaurants, galleries and museums, markets, travel apps, flights, hikes, and how to get involved and give back in our global village – the Mercy Ships story is especially powerful and inspiring.
