We swim for it in Sydney and go loco for brunch in Los Angeles and Vancouver. Tanya Tagaq swaps throat singing for fiction writing and the founder of Bumble buzzes with packing tips. Plus, a nighttime SUP tour in Costa Rica (we’re totally on board), a Bucharest hotel hits a high note and awkward silences aren’t so awkward in Helsinki.

AIR CANADA offers the only daily non-stop service from Vancouver to Sydney. Looking south from Bondi Beach, it can be difficult to distinguish the aquamarine waters of the Bondi Icebergs Club pool from the crashing Tasman Sea below. Swim some laps, then reward yourself with a Gin Bramble in the clubhouse. Afterward, continue south toward Tamarama – the two-kilometre stretch between the beaches is dotted with 100 installations by local and international artists for Sculpture by the Sea (October 18 to November 4), the world’s largest free sculpture exhibition.
