Vacations & Travel - - From The Editor -

Kerry van der Jagt is a multi-award­win­ning Syd­ney­based travel writer and pho­tog­ra­pher. Over the last decade she has ex­plored the far-flung cor­ners of the globe on foot, horse­back, kayak, skis and ex­pe­di­tion cruise ship, bring­ing back sto­ries on how we can all travel more re­spon­si­bly. She be­lieves that the best way to un­der­stand a new cul­ture is to travel slowly and pur­pose­fully, al­low­ing enough time for to­tal im­mer­sion. Her re­cent trip to Oax­aca, Mex­ico, for the an­nual Day of the Dead threw her head­first into the prepa­ra­tion, pro­to­cols and face paint­ing, which are part of the coun­try’s big­gest cel­e­bra­tion.
