Going Global: Letter from the Editor

Globility: The quality of being open to a world of cultures and experiences.

It’s a term Global Traveler publisher and CEO Francis X. Gallagher coined more than a decade ago as we were launching our first issue.

I’ve been thinking about globility quite a bit lately. Ten years ago, it was a fun catch phrase we used to define our mission, but it’s become so much more. Globility has become our essence as we’ve expanded our horizons to include China Global Traveler and eFlyer Asia.

Follow the GT staff on Twitter and you’ll see we’re as readily spread to the far corners of Earth as gathered at World Headquarters on any given day. Dinner in New York City followed by a breakfast meeting in Dubai? It’s a typical day.

The same holds true for our stellar team of contributors. In this issue alone, you’ll travel to the Balearic Islands with Barbara Radcliffe Rogers and check out the meetings scene in the Caribbean with Dale Leatherman. Allison Voigts offers tips for entertaining business clients in Sydney, and Victoria Abbott Riccardi savors time spent in Italy’s Dolomites. Kimberly Krol explores the nightlife in Warsaw. Richard Newton showcases Seoul and checks out a neighborhood in Addis Ababa, while Tim Leffel follows business with pleasure in Nicaragua, and Ron Kuhlmann takes us to San Francisco. And in the spirit of globility, Stephen Jermanok lays out the rules for securing travel visas, and Karin Leperi explores the connection between respecting cultural differences and succeeding in international business deals.

Globility: The quality of being open to a world of cultures and experiences — it’s a beautiful thing.

JW Marriott New Orleans Review

Family gatherings are extra special this year and we chose to celebrate a milestone birthday in New Orleans. The JW Marriott New Orleans, across the street from the historic French Quarter, is ideally situated for exploring the city. Streetcars roll in front of the property and are especially fun for first-time visitors. Within a ¾-mile radius, we could walk to the National WWII Museum, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Sazerac House, Harrah’s Casino, the Shops of Canal Place and numerous restaurants.
