We are big believers in the value of a well-traveled life, yet after taking a look around, we couldn’t seem to find a family travel magazine that appealed to us. We created Twist to satisfy our need for a publication that rises above the online clutter of tutorials, listicles and sound bites. We wanted a magazine that reminded us why we travel, not just where to travel, that spoke to our sense of adventure, that represented our collective passions. Call us old-fashioned, but we wanted a magazine we could hold in our hands and flip through offline. Yes, a print magazine…how retro of us!
Twist Travel Magazine is all about designing a travel-inspired life. This is a travel magazine to help you get where you want to go, in a realistic and fun way! But we go beyond travel: we’re infusing our magazine with additional lifestyle-related content because as much as we LOVE to travel, there’s this thing called LIFE that happens in-between packing and unpacking.
We know that family travel looks different for every family, which is why our focus extends beyond the traditional definition of the word. And yes, Twist is kid-friendly, but we understand that women also travel solo, for work, with friends, and with their partners. We love kids, but sometimes we don’t mind if they stay home from time to time.
In every issue of Twist, we strive to produce the quality of magazine we want to read. So welcome to something different, something unexpected, something that puts family travel on its edge and gives it a spin. Welcome to Twist.
