Ahead of the pack
Who knows what the year ahead might hold? Will, for instance, the next 12 months be the time when you finally make real those long-hazy dreams of starting a small shop, plotting out space for a countryside pension or jacking in the day job to start a farm or a beach bar? We hope so. In pondering such opportunities we’ve amassed a hit list of destinations; admire spas in Seoul, boats in the Baltic and a masterfully done hotel in Cobá, Mexico. We’ve also got a tree-shrouded hotel in the Thai forests, the beaches of northern Spain and a long-overlooked LA neighbourhood in which to set up shop. What follows is a rundown of 25 spots in which to work, unwind and seek new pastures. Enjoy.
