Four “little” letters … that dream big. Real big. Nickname of Conde Nast Traveler Creative Director and founder of this magazine, Yolanda Edwards, as well as inspiring acronym “you only live once,” YOLO Journal is not only a beautiful travel magazine, but a reminder for us to make the most of our time.
“An escape route” as Yolanda calls it, YOLO grew from a desire to have filtered, tested & approved travel information all in one place. Not an impersonal list of addresses, mind you, but a diary of enchanting stories and unforgettable adventures.
SUMMER 2022, Vive la France!
We all have a happy place. It could be as close as your neighbourhood bookstore, or that specialty coffee shop where they just really know how to make that perfect Flat White, or, if you’re like Yolanda Edwards, it could be another country. One of her happy places is France …. and we couldn’t be prouder!
From her first trip in 1985 where the experience was more “humble beginnings” at 16 years of age, she has now come to France countless times and has even bought a house here with her husband Matt Hranek in the gorgeous Médoc region.
This last Summer Issue is dedicated to France, and Yoland’s favorite thing about the country, its charm.
