New Yorkers rejoice: summer is finally upon us. The warmer weather means more time at the beach, tank tops and frozen margaritas on rooftops. It is also the perfect time to travel. Whether you’re staying in the US or taking the plunge into international waters, we have searched the globe to bring you a comprehensive list of Must-Have’s for your suitcase.
A Good Book.
Nothing says ‘relaxing vacation’ like a good book. Whether it’s on the beach in Miami, a cafe in Paris, or the train in Tokyo, this is a way to immerse yourself into a familiar world regardless of language barriers or whats going on around you. Our top 3 to pick up at the airport bookstore are:
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
“I had absolutely no interest in being somebody else’s muse. I am not a muse. I am the somebody. End of fucking story,” says Daisy Jones, singer of the renowned 1970s rock band Daisy Jones & The Six, in the opening pages of the novel based on her rise to fame and the band’s infamous split. The page-turner has already been picked up by Amazon for a series deal with Reese Witherspoon producing.
Figuring by Maria Popova
What’s a measure of a good life? And what’s the relationship between achievement and happiness? Maria Popova has explored these big questions on her beloved platform Brain Pickings since launching in 2006. In Figuring, she furthers this investigation into the human search for truth and meaning (and the complexities of love) through the lives of her favorite artists, writers, and scientists.
Winning the War Against Cancer by Sylvie Beljanksi
Described as a “story within a story” through its pages Winning The War Against Cancer, Sylvie Beljanski, the daughter of Mirko Beljanski, PhD, outlines a personal journey of discovery of her father’s new, and promising, paradigm for the treatment of cancer. This tale unfolds against the backdrop of the French establishment, determined to obliterate the findings of the world’s first green molecular biologist, one who spent over 40 years studying the environmental impact on DNA replication and transcription.
