Eclectic itineraries. Spontaneous road trips. Street food that’s worth seeking out. AFAR Magazine is all about adventure, and finding the big ideas that will shape your next trip, whether it’s setting sail in Indonesia or learning not to hate the opera in Vienna.

In the spirit of tapping into the cultures – and cuisines – of every city that their writers visit, the magazine has been known to send authors to destinations chosen at random, on 24 hours’ notice, or to ask celebrated chefs to eat their way around local marketplaces. For their Future of Travel issue in June / July 2015, they looked at the growing interest in marijuana travel (pot country is the new wine country) and the startups that want to get us all flying by private jet.
