Welcome

Spring 2015

Timeless Travels Magazine - - WELCOME -

Spring at last! Here in the North­ern Hemi­sphere, the dark days are be­hind us, the snow drops are out and the daf­fodils are about to bloom. I’m sure many of you have been think­ing about where to go next dur­ing those hor­rid win­ter months, and I hope you will find some in­spi­ra­tion in this is­sue for fu­ture plans.

Here you can travel to Cam­bo­dia, Italy, Egypt, Tur­key, Aus­tralia, In­dia, Eng­land and Am­s­ter­dam. Our intrepid trav­eller is back, and this time it is the won­der­ful Fanny Parkes. Fanny lived in In­dia at the height of colo­nial­ism and Wil­liam Dal­rym­ple brings her de­light­ful writ­ing to our at­ten­tion. Find out things you didn’t know about Hi­lary Bradt, the founder of the Bradt Travel Guides (which con­cen­trate on the road less trav­elled), and new to this is­sue is a book re­view sec­tion.

On the arts side we find out about Florence’s first fe­male pain­ter, Sis­ter Nelli and the trea­sures col­lected by the trav­el­ling Earls of Burgh­ley House. There is also a fo­cus on the new com­mu­nity paint­ings com­ing from the Aus­tralian out­back. So another packed is­sue which I hope you en­joy.

Happy read­ing!
