Monocle is a lifestyle publication that blends editorial and advertorial in a swirling world of weighty magazines, internet radio station and video. I am in awe at founder Tyler Brûlé who commands a nearly advertorial position in the FT Weekend that I relish each week where he can name drop his clients and friends in tales of his travels.
Monocle’s Travel Top 50 2015/16 collects their recommendations for a travel life where no price tag need be consulted. Not all are expensive themselves, and this is where I get inspiration because they range from hotels to classic train lines to small decor touches that get me thinking beyond my normal orbit. So much better than the typical spin the globe ‘Places to go in 2015’ list. Enjoy:
