Elite Traveler Summer 2020

We want to inspire you so that when we are able to take to the skies again, you’ll have no shortage of incredible places to visit.

By Elite Traveler |  June 25 2020


The world has completely changed since our last issue was published.

We are used to flying around the world at the drop of a hat, whether for important meetings or for fabulous getaways. We explored remote destinations seeking out authentic travel experiences that connected us to local cultures, and the world seemed to have grown smaller. But with Covid-19, all of that mind-expanding travel has stopped, and there is no clear path forward without a vaccine.

What do we do in the midst of such turmoil and uncertainty? We dream. Dream big. Dream of exploring far-flung locales, witnessing nature’s majesty in person and seeing the world’s most iconic sights. We want to inspire you so that when we are able to take to the skies again, you’ll have no shortage of incredible places to visit. And until that day comes, we are here to entertain, educate and inform you.

Our Discover and Style sections bring you the latest trends and new releases. For travel, we focus on the best food on the high seas, from famed chefs aboard both cruise ships and sensational superyachts. We also take you inside the spacious interiors of Gulfstream’s new G700. The Style section helps bring runway trends into your closet, as well as taking you to champion polo player Nacho Figueras’s Buenos Aires and to one of summer’s perennial favorite destinations, Mykonos.

Read exclusive interviews with golf legend Greg Norman and Zenith CEO Julien Tornare in our Influence section, where Norman ruminates on his storied career and Tornare shares his plans to reinvigorate a storied watch brand. Dennis Pinto, managing director of Micato, shares the company’s philanthropic efforts, and we take a look at how luxury brands and the travel industry are responding to Covid-19.

Our feature section has always been called Inspire, and it feels even more appropriate in this issue. Our main story showcases some of the greatest destinations on the planet, from seeing incredible wildlife to taking a deep dive into local cultures and enjoying nature’s beauty. Back at home, our cars are our private sanctuaries and will become even more important to us in the near future. We bring you the best of recent releases, so you can travel in safety and in style.

Finally, our Explore section invites you to explore the world from the comfort of your home as you fill your 2021 calendar with epic trips. Whether that’s escaping to the ocean in Newport, Rhode Island or on the Amalfi Coast, attending an amazing food festival or seeing the Great Barrier Reef is up to you.
