Publisher's Note

This issue we're exploring our "Best Of..." list of destinations, based on our (biased) picks for what’s hot for the beginning of 2014, selected from personal experiences and lists from travel bigwigs like Lonely Planet and National Geographic, but mostly compiled during a stupor of debauched indulgences during the year-end parties.

Features
Best of Far-Flung Gems - Svalbard: Northern Exposure
Aptly named by early Norse explorers, Svalbard (literally “the cold rim”) lies halfway between Norway and the North Pole. Consisting of numerous islands, the largest of which is Spitsbergen, the archipelago was only settled during the last 200 years when mining and whaling drew settlers to this remote corner of the world.
Best of Islands - Cape Verde: Spirit of Saudade
Mention islands and most people think palm-fringed, sandy beaches. And while we all love a beach holiday, there's so much more to many great islands. It's the very nature of their isolation (as islands) that creates their unique cultures, landscapes and wildlife – in this case, in two very different destinations – idyllic Cape Verde and historic Cyprus.
Gear Guide
Covered Up - Blue Place Get Peak Jacket
The BluePlace Get Peak Jacket is a 2-layer jacket with an environmentally-friendly Sympatex membrane for use in challenging outdoor activities. The jacket is completely waterproof and windproof (even rain and melting snow can't penetrate the seams) while allowing moisture and sweat to move away from the skin.
Exercise Buddy - Bose SIE2i Sport Headphones
Bose sport headphones are specifically engineered for exercise; they're sweat- and weather-resistant, stay comfortably yet securely in place without feeling closed off from your environment and deliver a wide-range sound, including the deep, natural lows.
 
Packing Light
Having to lug around too much gear on a long journey can quickly take the fun out of what should be an amazing journey. Here are some quick tips on how to cut down on that extra weight. If you have a large bag and a lot of empty space, you’re likely to fill it with things that you don’t need. Having a small pack forces you to only take the essentials. Switching from a 60-80L bag to a 40L bag can save you 1-2kg on just the bag itself.
