EDI­TOR’S LET­TER

is is­sue we cel­e­brate jour­neys – both the lit­eral ones that take us away from home, and those in­spir­ing ones that shift our mind­set and change the way we live.

Everyone’s talk­ing about “well­ness travel” lately – and we are in this is­sue – but by their very na­ture, hol­i­days are of­ten about get­ting away from life’s usual stresses and rou­tines, tak­ing a mo­ment and re­ju­ve­nat­ing. In most cases the plan is to re­turn from our hol­i­days feel­ing health­ier and ready to take on our daily lives again.

My fam­ily and I have just re­turned from a big, big hol­i­day – one we had been plan­ning since my el­dest daugh­ter an­nounced three years ago she was go­ing on a 12–month uni exchange to Spain. True, I ate more bread and cured meat than usual, but, wow, did we cover some walk­ing kilo­me­tres. My trusty fit­ness de­vice (pic­tured be­low) showed I was pound­ing out be­tween 15,000 and 25,000 steps a day. Back home, I’m de­ter­mined to keep up that level of fit­ness so I can stay strong and also be ready for the 28km Seven Bridges Walk in Syd­ney later this month.

We hope this is­sue, which in­cludes fab­u­lous mem­ber sto­ries as well as tips on how to stay healthy on hol­i­day and some great re­views of well­ness des­ti­na­tions near and far, will have you reach­ing for your di­ary and book­ing a getaway. Our 50-plus de­li­cious recipes in this is­sue will help you look and feel your best for your hol­i­day snaps. En­joy.

Our stun­ning cover was shot on the beau­ti­ful Hawkes­bury River.

Mem­ber Jen­nifer Aw­burn and the WW mag­a­zine crew hav­ing fun on the shoot.
