cntraveler These elephants in Namibia require water just twice a week, spending most of their days hiding in whatever shade they can find. We’ve all got to step out sometimes though – we came across these adventurers while shooting for our March 2006 issue. #TravelerInNamibia 🐘

cntraveler For our July 2003 issue we sent Brigitte Lacombe to photograph the Faraglioni in Capri, where ‘the umbrella pines are taller, the terra-cotta is softer and the sea is bluer.’ Stay too long and you might not leave. #TravelerInCapri 🌊

cntraveler Our September issue is here...and this month we're celebrating 30 years of this magazine 🎉  In the words of our editor-in-chief @pilar_guzman, While we may have moved from American Express Travelers Cheques and postcards to Apple Pay and Facebook Live, what doesn’t change in 30 years is the way in which walking into a medieval hilltop town square in Liguria at the golden hour, or diving through a pristine wave in Sumba, reminds us how lucky we feel to be alive, and changes our perception of time. Read more in our #linkinbio.

cntraveler Sorry to bring it up, but summer has almost come to a close. Good news? There are still a few more weekends to escape! If you're a #TravelerInNewYork, @pbbrady1 highly suggests heading to The Finger Lakes--it's just four to five hour drive by car from New York City, depending on where you’re going. Ithaca, at the south end of Cayuga Lake, has lots of hotels, solid restaurants, and easy access to the top vineyards. Post up at the Argos Inn, in a meticulously restored 19th-century mansion in the heart of the walkable downtown, or spend your nights in a safari-style tent at Firelight Camps, a “glamping” operation that opened near Buttermilk Falls State Park in 2014. 📸 by @kat_in_nyc

cntraveler Our love of water is pervasive (so much that we devoted our entire August issue to it), and the reasons behind why we travel—and rack up vacation credit card bills—to be by the water can be hard to articulate. But there's actually a scientific reason behind our need to be near water: It really does make us happier people. Read more about it in our link in bio 📸 by @muwanc

cntraveler So say you do get turned around in Central Park, and aren't interested in stopping someone to ask for directions. Service is spotty, and you don't know about Google Maps' offline functionality. You've got to escape, but aren't sure if you're heading toward the Met or Strawberry Fields. What to do? All you need to do is look at a lamp post.
Specifically, you should look at the base of one of the park's 1,600 cast iron lamp posts, which are numbered with four-digit codes to help you locate where you are: The first two or three numbers tell you which street you're closest to, while the last number indicates whether you're closer to the East or West Side of the park—odd numbers mean you're closer to the West Side, and even numbers mean you're closer to the East Side. 7021? Close to 70th Street, on the West Side. 1102? 110th Street, East Side. #TravelerInNewYork by @craigsbeds

cntraveler A hidden corner of a 17th century Moorish palace as a #TravelerInLisbon by @sezgiolgac. Lisbon is having a serious moment and Fado (literally: “fate” or “destiny”) which is Lisbon’s version of the blues, might have something to do with it. Click the link in our bio to read why @eliot.stein thinks so, and obviously, for the playlist. #TravelerInLisbon

cntraveler We are very excited to have @local_milk on our Stories today to share some snippets of her summer sailing holiday as a #TravelerInGreece exploring Dodecanese & Cyclades. ⚓️ The sea is my happy place. The place where I find quiet and peace and the ability to not care in the best possible way. My entire life is designed around spending as much time on or near the water as possible. It's, in my defense, a hereditary obsession. Kind of like being Force sensitive. But different... What are your favorite beaches and seaside destinations? - @local_milk (Click our link in bio to see why she's right!)

cntraveler In Tropea, there is a mythical lore associated with this town, which was named after Scylla, a water nymph who was transformed into a sea monster. The legend likely refers to her reputed home, the village’s castle-crowned rocky point, which has historically laid waste to many maritime endeavors. #TravelerInTropea by @prior.knowledge 📸 by @valentinamarzullo
