Traveler’s Picks

by Emily Nathan

“We aren't always after the sunniest, bluest sky or the perfectly sculpted still life. Rarely do I get to join forces with my colleagues with the sole purpose of capturing something else, something less than perfect, but, perhaps, more beautiful. Tiny Atlas Quarterly is a way to show the images we’re most drawn to – maybe it’s a storm sweeping over a mountain range, a quiet look, or just a silly moment – and the places and things we love and want to share". Emily

If you could close your eyes and be somewhere else, where would you want to be?

On a wave at Watego’s in Byron Bay.

The restaurant where you feel at home.

Dopo in Oakland, CA.

A hotel room that makes you nostalgic.

Halekulani in Waikiki.

A travel you could do over and over again without getting bored.

A week in Hanalei Bay in Kauai (I have done this trip at least 10 times).

A dish that recently surprised you.

Ink in LA, just went there and they had so many molecular gastronomy crazy things.

A holiday place from your childhood.

We used to go to NYC for thanksgiving sometimes which was so fun. We would have peking duck instead of thanksgiving Turkey and wander around the village, bookstores and little Italy to get my mom’s favourite biscotti.

If a kid asked you to take him/her on a trip, where would that be?

Glacier National Park in Montana.

If you could choose a dream place to celebrate (birthday, wedding…) what would that be?

I would love to spend some summer time in Norway, Sweden and Ireland. Also, I really want to go to Africa. Lots of places.

A view you will never forget.

My husband and I rented a house/villa in Ubud with my sister and her husband overlooking the Ayung river for a week with an infinity pool and it was stupendous.

Your Meraviglia address that can’t be missing from our collection.

I love Sicily and have been there and some of the islands a few times. I haven’t been to Pantelleria though and would love to go to Monastero!

A place you wish it was just round the corner.

Warm water beach with surf, anywhere.
