This is the last issue of 2014, and it’s a time to reflect on the past year and look ahead to 2015.

This was a big year at TravelAge West, as we welcomed three new editors to the staff. Valerie Chen, Michelle Juergen and Chelsee Lowe have settled in nicely, and it already feels like they have been at the magazine for years. I’m excited to see what this great team will do in their first full year working together — and for years to come.

Next year, TravelAge West celebrates its 45th anniversary and, like our readers, we are always looking to improve. We’ll be unveiling a redesign in the first quarter of 2015 that will give our pages a fresh look and some new features. Additionally, our two spin-off publications will be increasing their frequency in 2015. You can look forward to four issues of adventure content with Explorer and six issues of family travel stories with Family Getaways.

As we head into another year together, feel free to reach out to our staff with any suggestions or comments you may have (letters@travelagewest.com). We sincerely thank all of you for your loyalty to the publication, and we wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
