Let's Travel - - CONTENTS -

Mile­stones, good or bad, al­ways make me stop and think for a while. Think about where life has taken me, where it is at the mo­ment, and (most im­por­tantly) what path it will lead me down next. Ever since I was 21 I have been trav­el­ling this glo­ri­ous, aqua blue sphere we call Earth, go­ing to as many dif­fer­ent places as I can, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing as many dif­fer­ent things as I can, talk­ing to as many dif­fer­ent peo­ple as I can… and all the while try­ing to live life as fully as pos­si­ble…

Some­times “life” gets in the way, but here I am… about to ap­proach another BIG mile­stone and con­tem­plat­ing life, the universe and ev­ery­thing… and all I can come up with is 42! (Pity that’s 8 dig­its too few)

Our re­cent 4th an­niver­sary is­sue was a mile­stone for our busi­ness. At the time of set­ting up Let’s Travel we were cas­ti­gated and, I’m sure, laughed at be­hind well-guarded hands.

But here we stand – proud and tall. The best con­sumer travel pub­li­ca­tion in this glo­ri­ous land of ours, with our heart beat­ing faster than Carly Si­mon’s when she wrote about, who­ever she sung about, in “You’re so vain”! (My money’s on Mick Jag­ger)

Let’s Travel is con­stantly mor­ph­ing and chang­ing as new rev­enue streams ar­rive on our doorstep. For more than two years now Let’s Travel mag­a­zine read­ers have had ac­cess to a high qual­ity dig­i­tal for­mat of the pub­li­ca­tion, as well as ac­cess to our in­sights and trav­els through our web­site and Face­book pages. Where will all this lead us?

Who knows at this junc­ture… but keep­ing up with changes in this busi­ness we have cho­sen and love so much is just half the chal­lenge. The other half is giv­ing our read­ers and loyal ad­ver­tis­ers what they both want, and de­serve. Hope­fully their an­swer is also 42!

Live long and pros­per
