This month, our features are about disaster, disease, and warfare. What place does that have in a travel magazine? Well, linguists point out that travel and travail come from the same ancestor: travailen, travelen—which means to journey and to strive, but, tellingly, also to torment, and to labor. Writer Simon Winchester says that their root may go even deeper than that, and that the original word may have been the Latin tripalium, a weapon for torture. And so etymology shows that travel was never meant to be easy. GRID has never been just about the pretty places and the “postcard-worthy” destinations. We’ve always promised our readers, and ourselves, that GRID was going to be about, well, love—love for places, yes, and also love for the people, and for the spirit and the story behind every destination. Love means looking deeper; it means not turning away.
