Travel is the great trans­former. When we visit a place, no mat­ter how many times we’ve been there be­fore, it has changed. And ev­ery time we travel some­where, it changes us – some­times in big, bold ways and some­times in lit­tle ways that we don’t rec­og­nize un­til much later.

We’re em­brac­ing trans­for­ma­tion in this is­sue with sto­ries of chang­ing cities, out­looks and land­scapes. Jen­nifer Allford ex­am­ines the rise of In­sta­grammable mu­rals – how they’ve evolved from street art meant to make so­cial state­ments to street art de­signed to make the ul­ti­mate selfie back­ground (page 67).

Pho­tog­ra­pher Thomas Bouquin em­i­grated from France in 2009 to start a new life in Mon­treal and soon felt like he was los­ing his senses of dis­cov­ery and con­nec­tion to place. His photo se­ries “Light Bright” (page 73) served as a chal­lenge to look at his adopted city through a dif­fer­ent lens.

And fi­nally, writer Ted Al­varez trav­els to Hawaii to visit Kīlauea, one of the most dan­ger­ous vol­canos on earth. Its erup­tions are trans­form­ing both the land­scape and the na­ture of tourism on the is­land forever (page 48).

While travel of­ten starts off be­ing about the des­ti­na­tion and the jour­ney from point A to point B, the best part is re­turn­ing to where you started from with new ways of look­ing at the planet. En­joy this is­sue on your way from point A to point B!
