Stay In Touch: Letter From The Editor

Jul 1, 2013
2013 / July 2013

So many things we take for granted today weren’t even part of our daily lives as recently as a decade ago. That notion struck me as I was reading Diana Rowe’s article about cellphones. The tiny computers — and let’s face it, they are computers, certainly more powerful than the room-sized mammoths of the mid-20th century — we call smartphones allow us to make phone calls, check email, text messages, find step-by-step directions, listen to our favorite music. We can source apps for language translation, currency conversion, flight schedules and weather information. We can find a restaurant and make dinner reservations, check in for a flight or into a hotel. Even in the world’s most remote locations, smartphones make it possible to play games, take pictures and record videos.

I can take a photo of the peonies in my backyard and post it on Facebook for a friend in France to see. If I want to reminisce about the day we spent strolling through the flower market in Aix, I can ring her via Facetime and we can take a virtual stroll through the same market.

From Riyadh to Warsaw, world-class golf to top-notch spas, family travel to business meetings, our well-traveled journalists describe the sights, sounds and experiences of discovering destinations around the globe. We’d love to hear about your adventures. Wherever you are in the world, pull out your smartphone and take a quick pic. Send it to me via email (lisa.m[email protected]). The next time you open an issue of Global Traveler or sign on to our website (globaltravelerusa.com), you may see a photo of yourself staring right back at you.

San Antonio, Texas, Preserves Architectural Beauty for Future Generations

Homer and Janet by Homer Review

The Marais District, covering swaths of Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissments, has a distinctively gritty glamour that reveals it to be one of the city’s great incubators for new French food, fashion and lifestyle trends. It is here Moïse Sfez took on the challenge of creating street food establishments Homer in 2017 and Janet by Homer in 2022, doing it in such a way they both transcend the novelty of being regional American comfort food offered at stylized lunch counters matching up with New England lobster shacks and New York delis. Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.
