The Books Helping Us Escape Right Now

EThere may be no better time than winter to cozy up, ideally by a fire, with a stack of books and a cup of coffee (or something a little stronger). This particular winter, though, the escape and education we find through books will be even more necessary. Whether you're picking up books for yourself or sending hefty hardcovers to family and friends as holiday gifts, we have some suggestions that will distract, entertain, and inform—all by female writers spread across the world. (Translated Japanese authors were surprisingly popular this episode.) Joining us to share their favorite recent reads are Riverhead Books' associate publisher Jynne Dilling-Martin and Kalima DeSuze, activist and founder of the Cafe con Libros bookstore in Brooklyn. Here's a full list of what we talked about: Oreo, by Fran Ross Lobizona, by Romina Garber The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jemisin The Memory Police, by Yoko Ogawa Convenience Store Woman, by Suyaka Murata Tokyo Ueno Station, by Yu Miri The Custom of the Country, by Edith Wharton The Lying Life of Adults, by Elena Ferrante The Neapolitan Novels, by Elena Ferrante The Japanese Table, by Sofia Hellsten Luster, by Raven Leilani Hurricane Season, by Fernanda Melchor Read a transcription of the episode here: https://www.cntraveler.com/story/the-books-helping-us-escape-right-now-women-who-travel-podcast Follow Kalima's Cafe con Libros: @cafeconlibros_bk Follow Jynne: @jynnnne Follow Lale: @lalehannah Follow Meredith: @ohheytheremere All products featured on Condé Nast Traveler are independently selected by our editors.

How I Became a Professional Surfer in Hawaii

EWatch surfer Nique Miller tiptoe to the end of her longboard as she rides the waves off the shore of Oahu's Waikiki Beach, and you'll be instantly transported to island time. But for Nique, a professional surfer and stand-up paddleboarder, surfing is more than just a way to relax. It's given her the confidence and security in her own skin to speak up about the sport's lack of diversity, from the swimwear models to the competition lineup. This week, we're talking to Nique about how she got involved in surfing in the first place—and what moving from Texas to Hawaii has taught her about herself, including her competitive spirit and inner strength.

How to Make Every Day Off Feel Like a Real Vacation

EA special episode of the Women Who Travel podcast, presented by Lego. There are 56 business days between now and December 31, which means you have a little less than two months to use up your remaining vacation days. Count this as your reminder to start filing those days with your manager. (We shouldn't need to remind you that you're leaving money on the table if you don't.) Not sure what to do with them? We've got a few ideas in this week's podcast, presented by Lego. This episode, we're talking with U.K.-based illustrator Nina Cosford about giving yourself permission to take days off even if you're not planning a big vacation and finding joy in the little things, like meandering walks through your own backyard. She's also got tips for picking up journaling and creating boundaries between your work life and personal life when working from home.

Blair Braverman on What it Took to Complete the Iditarod

EThis week, as the weather starts to turn, we thought we’d give you a reason to look forward to the cold by resharing an episode with dog musher Blair Braverman. It was recorded shortly after she completed the Iditarod, a 938-mile long distance dog sled race which took her and her team of 14 dogs from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. We hope it at least inspires you to get your sweaters out of storage.

How the ‘Green Book’ Shaped a Generation of Black Travelers

EIt was a different time in the summer of 2019 when Janée Woods Weber, an activist and social justice educator, joined BBC presenter Alvin Hall on a road trip tracing the legacy of the Green Book a travel guide published from 1937 to 1966 that shared safe road routes for Black travelers. But as this summer came around—dubbed the summer of road trips by many, but also filled with marches and social activism addressing police brutality and systemic racism—the duo's trip seemed all the more prescient. It's all gathered in their new podcast from Macmillan, Driving the Green Book, which follows the journeys Black travelers took to the South and the memories those who grew up in the Jim Crow Era have of the groundbreaking book. We sat down with Janée to hear about what went into planning the road trip last year, what stories from Black elders she met along the way have stuck with her, and which Black-owned businesses she can't wait to visit when we're able to travel freely again.

How Hawa Hassan Built a Cookbook Around East African Grandmothers

EIf you're an avid reader or home chef, you've likely seen In Bibi's Kitchen on many of the year's most anticipated book lists. The cookbook is filled with recipes from eight African countries that border the Indian Ocean and stories from 24 grandmothers, and brings a new narrative to the table, one that Somali author, sauce maven, and former model Hawa Hassan is honored (if not a little overwhelmed) to share. “I was telling these new stories—I was expected to carry these stories—and I didn't know I could," she says on this week's episode. "I lived somewhere between inspiration and fear a lot of last year.” That self-imposed pressure has paid off. Her book launched earlier this week, so we sat down to hear about her time with those bibis and what it was like to create a cookbook written and photographed exclusively by women and featuring recipes crafted exclusively by women, based everywhere from New York City to Comoros.

Lale chats with travel writer Julia Buckley about her decision to ride out the pandemic in Venice, and Meredith compares notes with illustrator Lindsay Arakawa about cycling in New York versus Tokyo. Meanwhile, associate editor Megan Spurrell talks to content creator Lee Litumbe about life returning to normal in Dakar, and director of strategic projects Lauren DeCarlo speaks with travel writer Imani Bashir about juggling work and parenting in her temporary home of Cancun.

Photographer Cristina Mittermeier on Dedicating Her Life to the Ocean

EThis week, we're bringing back our How I Became series to chat with Cristina Mittermeier—marine biologist, conservationist, photographer, and co-founder of SeaLegacy, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the ocean. A National Geographic photographer known for her work underwater and among Indigenous communities in coastal areas, she's found a way to share her passion for our environment with the world. But it wasn't always a simple path. In fact, her first published photo was wrongly credited to her then-husband. Over the course of our chat, we talk about how a career in science led her to photography, her mission to educate us about the ocean, and how we can overcome that feeling of hopelessness amid the current climate crisis.
