INSPIRATION • November 2020
Packed with destination inspiration for 2021, we take a look at what’s trending this month on High Life...
While we can’t deny its romantic allure, the Seychelles isn’t just a paradise for loved-up honeymooners. With adventurous forest trails, sheltered beaches and sandcastle competitions (yes, really), the archipelago is a hit for jetsetters-in-training too – as Lonely Planet author and Indian Ocean expert Anthony Ham reveals.
We might not be able to travel to Mallorca right now, but you can get (virtually) swept away with this audio-visual tour. From its crystal-clear waters down to its mouth-watering cuisine, photojournalist and local Ana Lui shows off the best bits of the sunny Balearic Island. Just don’t forget to hit the ‘play’ button to add some serious sound effects to your tour...
Forget the Sistine Chapel, Eiffel Tower and Familia de Sagrada. If you want a European sightseeing checklist that is as quirky as it is clear of crowds, look no further than Ed Grenby’s weird and wonderful list of lesser-known Continental attractions, which includes Berlin’s off-beat museums (David Hasselhoff exhibition, anyone?) and where to find Europe’s only underwater art exhibition.
If you’re daily walk is starting to get a little dull, might we suggest adding a hefty dose of culture? From Grizedale Forest’s sculpture trail in Lake District to Helaine Blumenfeld’s latest residency in London’s Canary Wharf, wrap up for a brisk winter stroll around some of the UK’s greatest outdoor exhibitions.
Ever wondered what it’s like to work from a desert island? Journalist Greg Lea did just that in January 2019, when he packed his bags (and laptop) and jetted off to Vietnam. As the pandemic accelerates the shift to remote, online working, High Life finds out what it’s really like to be a digital nomad.
