FROM THE ARCHIVE: Whether you board with a briefcase or a rolling trolley, explore the globe in style with these luggage favourites, photographed on board a Bombardier Challenger 605 jet.

Tuscan soul, Ferragamo style.

One cannot think of Tuscany without imagining the cipresso so symbolic of the Tuscan landscape.

Equine competitiveness.

“Some people call it hockey on horseback,” said John Wash, president of the International Polo Club Palm Beach, before reeling off a one-minute refresher on the rules of polo. “So don’t let it complicate you, now.”

The MuseumsQuartier Wien.

Vienna’s appeal is undeniable. The Austrian capital was named the world’s most livable city for the sixth time in a row.

Meet the Smiths.

London-based husband-and-wife team James and Tamara Lohan are the founders of Mr & Mrs Smith, the boutique hotel guide and booking service.

A natural wander.

Pat Sweeney is drawn to places where many fear to tread. Hanging over the edge of the Cliffs of Moher with his arms balanced and neck craned at 90 degrees, the farmer-turned-trailblazer from County Clare on Ireland’s far west coast calls to a crowd to overcome their vertigo.
