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.
