A Year in Travel 2018

A recap of the year's good, bad, and tragic travel moments. After three years of the Travelogue podcast, this is our last episode. We’ve had such an amazing time sharing our travel stories and tips with you, and want to thank you for being such loyal listeners. Read more here:


What It Takes to Make Our Gold List

January 2019 marks the first transatlantic print issue of Condé Nast Traveler—and what better issue to launch with than an exhaustive list of our New York and London editors' favorite hotels, resorts, and cruise ships? In honor of this inaugural edition and our annual best-of-the-best Gold List, we put together a cast of British and American editors to chat about what it really takes to make the cut.


What to Do When Your Trip Goes Terribly, Horribly Wrong

For the most part, travel goes smoothly. But when it doesn't, it seems like it really doesn't: The river cruise you've been waiting the whole year to take is skipping a port you're excited about due to low water levels. Or your flight is delayed. And delayed. Delayed, delayed, delayed again, until eventually, it's canceled. Say you finally get on a flight, then, only to arrive at your destination and find that your hotel room has been given to someone else, since you didn't check in when you...


Where We're Going in 2019

All year long, Condé Nast Traveler editors meet with hotel owners and cruise operators, tourism boards and globe trotters, to pick their brains; we rack up air miles checking out new openings and revisiting places we haven't seen in 20 years. We talk to our peers in the U.K. at Condé Nast Traveller (two Ls, folks) about where they're heading next year. And we take all that intel and wrangle it this annual list of the best places to go next year—19 in 2019, lest you get bored. For more info:...


Everything We Want for Christmas This Year

In this week's episode of Travelogue, our editors are walk through our gift guides and give a few hints as to what they're giving this year (and what they're hoping to get). There's a little bit of everything: luggage (Away, of course), stocking stuffers to help reduce your plastic consumption, and the noise-cancelling headphones we've been raving about.

This'll serve you well on your second—or twenty-second—visit, too.


How to Survive Holiday Travel With the Kids

It's possible, we swear. Tune in to hear: Samantha Brown, host of PBS's Places to Love and mom to five-year-old twins Ellis and Elizabeth; Alex Postman, Condé Nast Traveler's features director and mom to Nell (12), Charlie (17), and Sam (19); Gina Lee, senior director of product at Priceline and mom to Sebastian (4) and Colette (5 months); Brian Sumers, senior aviation business editor at Skift and dad to Taylor (19 months); and host Laura Redman, Condé Nast Traveler's deputy digital director...


The Joys and Trials of Living Overseas

This episode originally aired October 20, 2017. Packing up your life and moving halfway around the world is exciting, but it can also be extremely challenging. Here, we learn from those who have done it.


Things You Should Never, Ever Do on a Road Trip

For many of us, road trips across the U.S. were our first introduction to travel—for others who grew up abroad, the road trip was the pinnacle of American-ness. In this episode, our editors tackle the do's, don'ts, and *oh hell no's* of the road trip. And, as usual with *Traveler* editors, there is no grey area. Only the most navigation-savvy person gets to sit in the passenger seat. That's right, shotgun does not apply. The shortest person gets the middle seat (#sorrynotsorry). The driver...


The Overtourism Stories You Haven't Heard

The first thing you need to know is that this is a part two of sorts, to an overtourism podcast episode we ran in 2017. You should probably that episode first. But in this week's episode, we check in on places in almost every stage of overtourism—from the brink of discovery (the Azores), to the one who's got it all figured out (Bhutan), to the city potentially past the point of no return (Venice). All while arguing over whether this overtourism problem facing islands, cities, and entire...


Inside the 2018 Readers' Choice Awards

When 429,000 of you speak, we listen—and then we talk about it on the podcast. If you want to know how the sausage gets made, why editor-favorite Hot List hotels (and destinations) are popping up in our RCAs faster than ever, why we're so freaking excited that Traveler readers voted a hotel like the Sagamore Pendry Baltimore as the number one hotel in the U.S., listen in. (Visit for a list of all hotels mentioned.)


We Planned Your First Trip to Chicago

Those who know it wouldn't dare call Chicago a second city, so it's no wonder it won the best city in the U.S. in our recently released Readers' Choice Awards. Listen in for intel on where to eat, stay, and play in Chicago.


Our Favorite Late Night Eats Around the World

Warning: Do not listen to this episode on an empty stomach. From fries to doner kebabs, here's what our editors eat after hours.


How to Find the Perfect Suitcase

Do you opt for the durability of a hard shell or the flexibility of soft canvas? Is a built-in battery a must-have or a frivolous marketing ploy? Does the way a suitcase looks matter more than how smoothly it rolls? These luggage questions spark iron-clad opinions in frequent travelers. So on this week's episode, we hit the proverbial baggage claim to look at the backpacks, rollaboards, and check-in suitcases that rule... And the ones that don't.


Where You Should Go This Fall

From Mexico to New York, here are some fall getaways we can't wait to take.


Things You Should Never, Ever Do in a Restaurant

We cover when it's ok to eat with your hands (steak, never; bacon, always), as well as how to navigate all the different utensils, how picky you're allowed to be, and our overall pet peeves. (Don't use flash photography. Just don't.)


It's Hurricane Season. Time to Plan Your Trip to the Caribbean

Every September, knuckles from Maine to Venezuela whiten with the approach of storm season, that 3-month window when the wide stretch of the Atlantic between Dakar and Antigua threatens to fling spirals of torrential rain and wind at our eastern coasts. In this episode, we give you tips on staying safe and protecting your vacation in hurricane zones, including how to choose a low-risk island and what to do when things go wrong. We'll revisit the classics, and update you on Puerto Rico, St....


We Planned Your First Trip to Boston

Historical sites, the best dive bars, and (of course) the Green Monstah: We cover it all.


Where to Go for Labor Day Weekend

Because we actually planned in advance this year...
