John Cantrell, Director, Insider Journeys
After growing up in Kentucky, John has spent most of the years since—thirty and counting—in New York City. As one of Indagare's several staffers who were magazine editors before joining the company, he traveled extensively, to such places as Napa, for the wine auction; Cannes, for the film festival; Italy, for a Ferrari driving clinic; and Egypt, to cruise the Nile with Biki Oberoi. "We used to tell thousands of readers at a time what to know about a place and how to enjoy it the most. Now we do that on a family-by-family, trip-by-trip basis -- it's like bringing a story to life, one trip at a time."
- Nepal, for the chance to go hiking in a landscape that is literally close to heaven
- Israel, for the miracle that its existence is: you can see the signs that invaders left everywhere, and you can feel the will to survive in air
- Portugal, where we helped plan a weeklong trip for 70 guests that included such special touches as flamenco dancing and fireworks
