In the April/May issue of Traveler magazine, we highlight multigenerational itineraries across all seven continents—from a six-year-old star photographer touring the American Southwest to penguin-packed Antarctica for the travelers who think they've seen it all.
Writers and photographers went off the beaten path to underrated cities in Europe, to trek gorillas in the mountains of Rwanda, and to visit Nepal one year after its devastating earthquake. Then our photo editors took on a herculean task of choosing the top photos from this world of diversity for the print magazine.
