It is traditional, at this time of year, for travel sections to run articles discussing new or pertinent destinations for the coming 12 months. Some of them will be well-known sun-spots given fresh relevance by a hotel opening or a resort renovation. Some will be intriguing locations and alluring cities given an extra gleam by a major anniversary. And some will be niche corners of the planet whose inclusion on any list may make the reader shake their head, and wonder if the writer in question has lost touch with reality.

Fay Abuelgasim, Suzan Fraser and Jon Gambrell Associated Press Published 9:23 AM EDT Oct 16, 2018 Istanbul – America’s top diplomat met on Tuesday with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman over the disappearance and alleged slaying at the kingdom’s hands of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi at its consulate in Istanbul.
