At the heart of everything Trobat does is travel—we hope to recreate the feeling of stumbling onto some hidden gem during your travels. After all, as Hans Christian Anderson so perfectly put it: to travel is to live. Our featured artisans come from all corners of the globe, from Mallorca to Uruguay, Copenhagen to New York City. As artists who lead deeply creative lives, we take their travel recommendations as gospel, whether it’s the off-the-beaten-track monastery that is worth taking a three-hour hike to uncover, or the neon-lit dive bar with the best martinis in the city, or the bolthole art gallery that only locals know about. Here, we deliver a comprehensive directory to far-flung locales from around the world, with recommendations approved by the artists who live there.
