Where will September 2018 take you? Where should it? You could visit a cosmopolitan city (we’re thinking Paris, New York, Venice or Los Angeles). Or make a cultural pilgrimage to a new design museum in Scotland. You could hit Oktoberfest in Munich, which actually starts in September. Looking for something more bucolic? Make a pilgrimage to the birthplace of bourbon in Kentucky, or head to wine country in northern California for the harvest season. Feeling the need for adrenaline-fueled adventures? The Inca Trail in Peru awaits. More in the mood for the beach? Ditch your shoes and set up shop in Madagascar. It’s all waiting for you. It’s September. Let’s go!
Whether you’re a long-time resident or a first-time visitor, the newly-opened Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries at Westminster Abbey are a must-see. Literally. There is no photography allowed in this newly-opened space high above the Abbey (although the press was allowed to take some pics, so you can get a peek at the new space online). If you want to see it in full, you have to go in person. Which you should definitely do. It’s a magical space, and a transforming experience.
