Flash of Genius: Our Latest Travel-Photo Obsession

Have a serious case of wanderlust? Do yourself a favor this AM and head over to Grandpa’s Photos. The website archives a collection of personal travel images taken by “Grandpa” Stephen Clarke, a WWII Air Force navigator and jewelry buyer from Australia. Family members discovered the slides in a cupboard while moving him into a nursing home and, lucky for us, decided to share them. Between the sepia tints, blurred figures, and surreal settings, these nostalgic snapshots are sure to sate those take-me-there Tuesday daydreams. (And spark new ones.)

Today’s Wanderlust: The SPA Retreat in Jamaica

Calling all escape junkies. This travel eye candy might just inspire you to book the next flight to the tropics.Jamaica Vacations

The spot:

The SPA Retreat in Negril, Jamaica.

Why we love it: 

There is absolutely nothing generic about this adults-only escape – from the 18 handcrafted stone cottages you’ll call home base to the seawater pool and exotic grey cliffs. (And yes, you read that right, no kids.) 

On the to-do list: 

Order a cocktail at the poolside bar. Nap under a shaded cabana. Then take a ladder down to the ocean for some snorkeling in the property’s coral reef. After it all? Try sunset yoga or Pilates at the open-air SPA pavilion, followed by some cliffside farm-to-table dining

Ready to jet? Our The SPA Retreat – Jamaica Boutique opens Thursday, May 8, at 11AM ET.

4. Candy-colored buildings and long, winding stairs.

5. A little of this. A little of that. All in a day’s travel.
