Suitcase Magazine

Founded by Serena Guen, Suitcase is one of our favorite travel magazines for inspiring and helping people to discover global destinations and cultures beyond the standard tourist path. Suitcase exists to change the way we travel, providing us thoughtful, informed recommendations, encouraging slower and more mindful travel. Suitcase avoids to the impossibly luxurious and the underwhelming tourist clichés and embraces the eclectic and adventurous appetite of a generation of creatives and entrepreneurs.
For the 30th issue, dedicated to Health, the magazine shows that even if travel doesn’t solve the ills of society or our personal struggles, it gives us the opportunity to temporarily step outside of ourselves, examine the strains of our everyday existence and reclaim some balance in untarnished surroundings.
The Health Issue is the magazine’s spring spin on the concept of wellbeing travel and swaps boot camp for forest bathing, collagen smoothies for craft beer and ‘wellness’ for good health. Articles include a horse-whispering retreat in the Andalusian hills; Otegha Uwagba’s search for peace in the lesser-known Japanese prefecture of Nagano; a novice jogger’s experiences on a running retreat in Oaxaca; a hilarious Swiss spa review by Raven Smith; encounters with punk-rock farmers and creatives in Portland, Oregon; and other wellbeing-inspired journeys in Nepal, West Sweden, Puglia, Austria, and the British countryside.
