This issue felt like a warm memory, as it allowed me to reminisce on my last few 2022 trips. In October I joined Francis X. Gallagher and Haley Fogarty on a trip to Chicago, where I squeezed in a visit to one of the city’s newest spas (page 26), and in November, my husband, Scott, and I enjoyed an incredible trip to France, sailing the Seine River from Paris through Normandy. Follow along on our itinerary on page 74 and enjoy the gorgeous fall views of the French countryside in my photo. Yes, I’m still dreaming of those croissants … and the macarons … and the cheese, the wine — well, you get the point.

Speaking of river cruises, you have an exclusive chance to sail with Global Traveler this fall. Join our publisher and CEO, Francis X. Gallagher, on AmaWaterways’ AmaMagna visiting Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Some of the fun includes an Oktoberfest celebration in Vilshofen, a walking tour of Bratislava and a taste of the famous apricots in the Wachau Valley. Learn more and book at amawaterways.com/globaltraveler, using promo code GLOBALTRAVELER. I’ve become a fan of river cruising — docking in small villages otherwise inaccessible, waking up each day in a new port, unpacking once, making friends with fellow passengers and so much more. Scott would agree!

My trip down memory lane continued as I put together the photos for our GT Tested Reader Survey awards event recap, on page 34, recounting my December trip to Los Angeles with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team to celebrate the winners of our 19th annual reader-voted awards. On the subject of awards, do you think you’re the FXExpress Traveler of the Year? Submit your nominations in seven separate categories through March 31 at globaltravelerusa.com/fxexpresstraveleroftheyear.

While I got to take a look back, I’m also preparing to take flight next week for an overnight to Miami, and I had a chance to reconnect with many travel contacts and writers in January in New York City at TravMedia’s International Media Marketplace. I’m looking forward to a 2023 full of new adventures. Travel with us this month to Philadelphia, Ibiza, Bagan, Abu Dhabi, the Rocky Mountains, Turks & Caicos, Mexico City and Nashville. Next month we release our special WhereverFamily digital issue. Use the QR code on the cover to download our app so you don’t miss it!
