WAYFARE NO. 1 PREVIEW
We recognize that travel is not defined by how many miles you cover. It’s about finding inspiration along the journey and celebrating the everyday moments. It’s about the spirit of discovery — breaking out of your routine to unwind, connect, and learn. It’s this desire to go, to celebrate, and to experience that drives everything we do.

This level of detail and care is what stood out, what made us feel like we could escape it all. Enter the hallmark trait of luxury destinations: their ability to anticipate the unexpected and take the extra step to make small details memorable. They personalize your trip to match your definition of luxury. For me, luxury was sitting down to a fresh pot of coffee, with no background noise from morning TV to distract, and taking the time to quietly sip and stare at the ocean. These fleeting moments made me feel as though all was right with the world.

Photographer Leigh Beisch, along with her husband, father, and ten-year-old daughter, forgo their annual trip to Cape Cod for something a little more mysterious.

The various monkey portraits were taken at the Zoo, located in the stunning Borghese Gardens. We had been looking at so many important artworks, pictures of Popes and Emperors depicted, over the course of our trip that when I saw these furry, animated faces in gilded frames, I couldn’t help but laugh. e decided to rent a small apartment in Trastevere, located on the outskirts of Rome and just south of Vatican City. We booked the apartment for two weeks so we could spend one week as tourists and the next week as locals. While Rome is where scale and extraordinary monuments are on display at every turn, the color and texture of this neighborhood are what captured our hearts. Here we felt like we could experience art, not just see it. The building of our tiny rented apartment had the most amazing rustic front door that was designed to keep out invaders during the medieval period. There was also a stone staircase that was so worn with age that I could imagine a young slave girl carrying water up them thousands of years ago. Staying here instead of a hotel allowed us to let the language of the place—the people, the light, the smells—to seep in and shape our experience. The family and I enjoyed being part of the neighborhood’s everyday routines, sampling from the well-visited osterias and trattorias; shopping at the local designer clothing boutiques; and enjoying the famous Sunday flea market, Porta Portese. One place we frequented was local trattoria La Scala, where my daughter would order her favorite dish of spaghetti con burro e parmigiano, a simple dish of pasta with butter and parmigiano. One of my favorite dishes here was the tagliolini cacio e pepe con fioridi zucca e pachino, a pasta with a beautiful squash blossom layered on top, then sprinkled with parmesan and ground pepper. 1 8 WAYFARE SEE. I spent some time shooting for my personal work entitled â€œBodies of Land,â€? which is a series of abstract landscapes that are out of focus with the subject matter being light and color. This allows me to create a more timeless landscape that captures the imagination. WAYFARE 2 1 O eAT. My father and I woke up early a few mornings to photograph. Before we headed out, we stopped at the local Bar for morning cappuccinos and jam filled pastries. I loved the colorful trays here. ur first morning in Rome, we headed to the Piazza di Santa Maria, where we found a beautiful fountain guarding the entrance to the Basilica of Our Lady, or Basilica di Santa Maria, one of the most ancient churches in Rome. So ancient, in fact, that it’s one of the few churches where you can see Christ depicted as a living prophet, rather than on the cross. It was here that I noticed the light streaming in through the clerestory, illuminating select statues and giving the sense of divine light. This light shaped my experience in Rome, becoming my subject matter and focal point of the trip. The photo of the portal looking out onto the wall with a row of dotted trees was at the entrance to Hadrian’s Villa, a Roman Emperor of the 2nd century AD. The wall pictured here was built to be just one mile long, which was the length of the palace and, according to our guide, the distance that the Emperor’s physician had advised him to walk every day. The morning light of this photo gives us a glimpse into what one of the Emperor’s walks might have been like. From the cobblestone streets and terracotta and maize buildings cast in deep wine hues to street windows dotted with laundry lines, Rome was richer than I had ever imagined. I loved the color of the place, and the way the light would fill ancient crevices to reveal some things and hide others. It felt as though this light held the secrets of Rome.
