At the age of four months, Rick Jordan set sail for Sierra Leone with his parents, an epic voyage he has no memory of but has struggled to match ever since. He has written and sub-edited for Wallpaper*, Esquire and the Guardian, and is currently Chief Sub-Editor on Condé Nast Traveller. During his time at Vogue House he has stayed in hotels from Bangkok to Kerala, although his favourite hotel experience was in a rooftop hot tub in Manchester, overlooking Coronation Street. He wonders why ‘tea and coffee-making facilities’ is still a selling point in this day and age.
