Here’s the first and last time a Bloomberg employee will ever write these words: Log off your Terminal. For a weekend. For a week. For as much time as it takes to get on a plane, go away, and have an adventure that leaves you feeling refreshed and invigorated and maybe a little bit tan. This is Bloomberg Pursuits’ first travel issue, and the trips we’ve included take you all over the globe—a Michelin-starred meal in the French countryside, a romantic Caribbean holiday, an elk mating party in Montana (humans are only invited to watch).

My favorite story, by writer Sarah Hepola, uncovers Newfoundland’s remote and beautiful Fogo Island Inn, an architecturally stunning retreat created by Zita Cobb, a former fiber-optics executive and one of the richest women in Canada. Everything at the upscale property is locally sourced, down to the partridgeberry juice at breakfast; even the structure’s design is inspired by the fishing shacks along the island’s shoreline. It’s a singular place, so far removed from everyday life that it leaves visitors transformed.

Time off, of course, requires packing, and this month’s Spend portfolio features luxurious accessories such as Pryma headphones, Valentino espadrilles, and a Louis Vuitton minitrunk. The accessories were shot in a Cessna Citation X, one of the fastest midsize jets in existence. With a range of 3,400 miles, it’s just the aircraft to book for a long weekend holiday. I thought of that Cessna longingly while in an epic security line at LaGuardia during a recent trip to Miami with my 6-month-old baby in tow. (As Robert Benchley put it accurately, “In America there are two classes of travel—first class, and with children.”) That’s the thing about getting away: If you’re going to do it, do it well.

So sit back, relax, and—who are we kidding?—open up your Bloomberg app. The world’s waiting for you to discover it.
