OutThere – The Monumental NYC Issue
Printed in Belgium
New York is somewhat of a second and spiritual home to us. We’ve been lucky enough to visit frequently and each time, we grow to love it even more and discover new parts of it; and get acquainted with its fascinating and eccentric personalities. NYC is impossible to sum up in words, no matter how hard I try. But what I can tell you is that it has an undeniable, mercurial power. A force so strong, which since its inception – who knows, possibly even before – has drawn free spirits and storytellers like us to it. And it will, without a doubt, surprise, delight and educate all visitors – as well as make you feel brand new and inspire you (big lights and all). The city’s tourism marketing organisation describes NYC as ‘monumental’; and we’d wholeheartedly agree. We’re thrilled to partner with NYC & Company; to put together this very special edition of OutThere.
Beyond NYC, we take other monumental journeys to lesser-travelled lands. OutThere’s team of adventurers – Zack Cahill and David Edwards – cure their itchy feet from their last assignment together, bareface climbing in Krabi, to take on frozen Laugavegur in Iceland. The cold weather doesn’t stop our other explorers either: John Gregory-Smith heads to Finland in search of the Northern Lights and Rupert Mellor checks out the luxuries of St Moritz, Switzerland. I, on a different high altogether, head to the Colorado Rockies to discover Denver. In our Basecamp section, we go to Myanmar, Indonesia, Singapore, Peru and Thailand to check out the very best high-end hotels, resorts and cruises.
