    Skiing in Niseko: "I've always wanted to go skiing in Niseko, Japan, home to some of the best powder in the world. While there, I would end each day with Japanese-style aprés, sipping hot sake at a cozy, slope-side izakaya or slurping ramen at one of the mountain's noodle shops." —Valbona B. Twerdahl, Assistant Managing Editor

    America by Bike: "I think I would head down to the Mason-Dixon line to follow the cultural divide between north and south, then continue through the Texas panhandle and the awesome grandeur of the Southwest, and finish by pedaling my way through the Mojave and pushing all the way to the Pacific."—Jesse Ashlock, Features Director

    A Scottish Namesake: "We'd combine three or four nights in Edinburgh, at the iconic Balmoral Hotel, with a day trip to Gifford. Then we'd board the Belmond Royal Scotsman on one of their classic 4-night journeys and ride up into the Highlands to soak in that spectacular scenery. Then, we'd finish with a visit to the windswept Isle of Skye and a Lagavulin tasting on the Isle of Islay." —Jacqueline Gifford, Senior Editor, Travel and Beauty

    Eating My Way Through Basque Country: "A friend recently recommended Bar Nestor, which basically only serves my two favorite foods: tomatoes and steak. After I've had my fill, I'd pick up the Camino del Norte, reputed to be more low key than Spain's more trafficked El Camino de Santiago, and hike eastward, stopping at the villages and beaches dotting the country's magnificent Green Coast." —Sarah Firshein, Digital Director

    Africa on Horseback: "My bucket list trip is a horseback safari in Africa. It allows you to get incredibly close to the animals, and to go places vehicles can’t. Imagine, instead of watching a herd of gazelle cross a river, you are crossing the river with them!" —Jeffries Blackerby, Executive Editor
