Phrase of the day: Tripping point (trip-ping `point)Part of speech: nounDefinition: The point at which an editor is displaced from everyday activity into a different state, country, continent, or undisclosed destination to take his or her vacation days.Example: Here’s where our editors dream about going once they’ve reached their tripping point. Emily F., Chicago editor: 360° Leti, Uttaranchal, IndiaThere is no phone, Internet, or TV in the Himalayas. Just water from the mountains, heat from the stove, and books by candlelight.Crystal, deputy editor/Everywhere editor: La Villa les Anges, Brittany, France It’s time to make a pilgrimage to the home of striped shirts and kouign-amann. Jay, managing editor: Rancho Pescadero, Pescadero, Baja California Sur, MexicoIt’s an exhausting shuffle (all four minutes of it) from the pool through the palms to the beach. Good thing I can nap in a cabana when I get there. Lindsey, Kids editor: Kinnikinnick Farm, Boone County, IllinoisIt’s time for less concrete and more country. I told my daughter we were going to the farmers market, and she asked if she could milk cows. Lauren, editor: A Bar A Ranch, in the middle of nowhere, WyomingI would ride horses and fly-fish on the Platte by day, and drink whiskey and square-dance by night. Since it’s cowboy country, I may or may not be wearing chaps for all of the above.Emily W., assistant editor: Mandarin Oriental, Prague, Czech RepublicA dose of old Bohemian splendor and a spa of epic historical proportions — like this one inside a renaissance chapel — should just about do it. Karen, senior editor: Blackberry Farm, Walland, TennesseeI want to get my hands dirty at the farm. And by that, I mean I want to pick veggies from the gardens at the Smoky Mountain Table culinary experience.Evvie, Los Angeles editor: Cavo Tagoo, Mykonos, GreeceAnyplace I can get a massage while eating nachos. That’s a health code violation, you say? Okay, then anywhere in the Greek islands.Hali, promotions editor: Hotel Omm, Barcelona, SpainI’d spend the days meandering along cobblestone streets to find the best sangria in town and dreaming in Gaudi’s park. Carrie, executive editor: Huzur Vadisi, TurkeyBonuses to the already-great Omkara yoga retreat: swimming in the Mediterranean and sleeping in a yurt.Malika, London editor: Vancouver, Canada, to Seward, Alaska, via Silversea I want to get out of this sweltering heat — and see killer whales in action. (I hate cruises, but this would be worth getting seasick for.) Kristin, production assistant: One&Only Reethi Rah, North Male Atoll, the MaldivesThe perfect place to scuba dive and not get a tan (because I can’t). Janelle, photo editor: Punta Mona, El Caribe Sur, Costa RicaI would learn about permaculture growing and do a little sea kayaking. Holley, promotions editor: Argos, Cappadocia, Turkey You can find me listening to the coos of rock doves as they flutter about the fairy chimneys.Ashley, editorial director: Camp Jabulani, Hoedspruit, South AfricaEach day would begin with an elephant safari and end with an amarula sundowner [sun-down-AH] (that’s happy hour in the bush).Jordan, New York editor: Treehotel, Harads, SwedenI just like being surrounded by trees and a language with a suspicious number of accents (the Eric Northman lookalikes are a definite plus).Steven, Web intern: Áman Sveti Stefan, MontenegroBecause why not?
