Time And Place: Letter From The Editor

Nov 18, 2013
2013 / December 2013

I had fun writing “Best of GT: Destinations,” the most recent chapter in the countdown to our 10th anniversary in February 2014. I decided to focus on special moments in the destinations I’ve visited over the years, from a rug emporium in Turkey to vineyards in Switzerland and from the Great Barrier Reef to the Great Wall of China. It was difficult to narrow the field to 10 but a great opportunity to take a stroll down memory lane.

In this issue, we also reveal the winners of our 10th annual GT Tested Reader Survey awards as voted by you, our esteemed readers. Did your favorites earn top honors? Check out the results.

As always, our intrepid team of writers weighs in with reports from around the world. Sharon King Hoge writes about the business climate in Baku, while Debra Bokur explores Prague with family in tow. Ron Kuhlmann shares tips for sealing business deals in Manila, and Ted Alan Stedman profiles some of the world’s best dive sites. Richard Newton describes the after-5 scene in Jeddah, and Eunice Fried offers suggestions for exploring the Big Apple’s boroughs during a day off in New York City. J.D. Brown and Margaret Backenheimer kick back on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, and Ron Bernthal gives us an up-close look at doing business in Omaha.

We love to hear from you. Drop us a line to share some of your own travel memories and advice.

The Saronic or Argo Saronic Islands of Greece call travelers to explore its seven small islands and islets brimming with history, natural sites and more.
