Happy anniversary, Global Traveler. Over the past 12 years, the publication has firmly established itself as the leading magazine for frequent, savvy travelers, and the ultimate source for travel information. That’s why it is so important for us to reach the GT reader, and why it’s the ultimate testament and honor for two of our Chase cards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card and the Marriott Rewards Credit Card, to be continually recognized in the GT Tested Reader Survey awards. Our partnership with the magazine is a valuable one, and we look forward to many continued years working together.

Congratulations to Global Traveler on its 12th anniversary. I enjoyed the evolution of the magazine over the years, which now includes an online edition. I particularly like the destination articles that feature great photography combined with practical travel tips. It is a truly international publication featuring destinations from all over the world, and this global perspective is highlighted in the scope of the annual reader survey awards. Keep up the good work!

Happy 12th birthday, Global Traveler! We at oneworld are just a few years older than you. Our airline alliance was a 5-year-old toddler when Global Traveler came into being. My, how we’ve both grown! Back then, oneworld brought together eight airlines collectively serving slightly more than 500 destinations with 7,900 daily departures by a combined fleet of 1,940 carrying 220 million passengers a year. Today we feature 15 great carriers who can take you to more than 1,000 cities in 150-plus countries on 14,500 daily departures by 3,400 aircraft used by 512 million customers a year. Like Global Traveler, we are in the business to make life easier for frequent international travelers by understanding, recognizing and caring for their travel needs. We are proud they, your readers, voted oneworld their favorite airline alliance for the past six years in Global Traveler’s GT Tested Reader Survey awards — that’s half your Global Traveler lifetime! Here’s to them! Here’s to Global Traveler! And here’s to another 12 great years and more ahead!

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
Travelers arriving at Vilnius International Airport in Lithuania will find themselves walking along a trail of pink spots on the floor — dubbed “cold pink” by the country as it matches the distinct color of the country’s national šaltibarščiai soup. The trail ends at a 10-foot replica of the famed dish.
