Travel + Leisure's 35th Anniversary

Travel always transforms us—whether we like it or not—in subtle ways or in permanent ones. It gives us new perspectives, new ideas about ourselves and the world we live in. But sometimes a trip is more than just a trip; sometimes it flirts with transcendence. These are journeys we remember forever. For 35 years, Travel + Leisure has been documenting them for you, and to mark the anniversary we've dispatched our contributing writers and photographers to destinations around the globe, from Italy to Easter Island, from the Galapágos to Dubai, among others. In the stories listed below, we've amassed all the information you'll need to map out a life-changing trip of your own.
