Portland: Head north to eat oysters with kimchi and pickled ginger, drink cocktails that pair with their salty flavor, watch a James Beard award-winning chef in action, devour an eight-course tasting menu, and find endless lobster dishes in Maine’s largest city.

Dakar: Adjust to a new time zone with a good meal, an elegant dining room, a spacious terrace, exceptional Lebanese food, and chilled French rosé before you start exploring Senegal.

Montevideo: Step back in time in a 1920s townhouse, stay in a room named after a famous artist or musician, take in the view from the rooftop terrace, borrow a local smartphone to explore the city, and be grateful you didn’t skip the capital of Uruguay.

Madrid: Return to Spain to find a cool hang out spot, a casual restaurant that serves street food-style plates and interesting cocktails, rooms that look like converted lofts, a running station with route suggestions, and lazy brunches on the rooftop at a new hotel in the capital.
