June 2014: Editor’s Letter


Being a great traveler comes down to saying "yes" a lot—in many languages, of course. Last-minute Sunday afternoon bike ride to that far-flung crab shack? Yes. Price drop alert for Istanbul flights...in three weeks? Yes. Hot-air balloon taking off in 30 minutes? Yes!

Being quick on the affirmative will ensure you carve your own path (without burying your head in digital maps and guidebooks). After all, the last-minute stumble-ins and happen-upons make for the best stories anyway.

Speaking of travel, we’re delighted to announce we’re partnering with JetBlue to bring Birchbox to their new Mint Experience. To kick the tires, we teamed up on a travel quiz for this month’s box. So if you can’t decide where to spend your summer vacation (however many days that may be), just fill it out to find a destination match for your style. Share your results for a chance to win a round-trip travel certificate from JetBlue.

To help you stay in the moment even when you’re far afield, this month’s issue on The Guide is full of helpful packing tips, travel itineraries, and expert advice from professional globetrotters.
