VOGUE Australia - - CULTURE -

A LONG SICILIAN SUM­MER

To ex­pe­ri­ence la dolce vita in the deep­est way, spend an en­tire sum­mer in Si­cily. Rent a villa in the re­gion’s south-east, full of crum­bling Baroque cities and tiny towns.

BE­YOND BHUTAN

Take an in­ner jour­ney out­side in Ladakh, ex­plor­ing the re­mote Bud­dhist district high in the Hi­malayas where the way of life re­mains largely unadul­ter­ated.

MASTERING JA­PAN

Learn crafts along­side Ja­panese ar­ti­sans keep­ing gen­er­a­tions-old tech­niques alive in the moun­tain-bound town of Mat­sumoto.

THE NEW SAFARI

To ex­plore Mada­gas­car is to fall in love with the bizarreness of the nat­u­ral world and be con­verted to one of its guardians.

RE­NEW CON­FI­DENCE AT CARNAVAL

To ex­pe­ri­ence Carnaval at its most vis­ceral, head for Sal­vador in Bahia, the cen­tre of Afro-Brazil­ian cul­ture. Be­sides the req­ui­site par­ty­ing, it’s an elec­tric jolt for any­one’s body con­fi­dence, as ev­ery shape and size shakes, swings and sways in pure anony­mous joy.
