Air Canada enRoute



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!
