Wel­come

Sum­mer 2018

Timeless Travels Magazine - - WELCOME -

Imen­tioned in the win­ter edi­tion that we'd hope­fully be hear­ing more about Troy this year and so I am de­lighted to bring you a whole sup­ple­ment on the site, the area and the ini­tia­tive from the Turk­ish Cul­ture and In­for­ma­tion Of­fice cel­e­brat­ing 2018: The Year of Troy. Def­i­nitely a good ex­cuse to dis­cover this won­der­ful site and to see all there is in the area.

In the mag­a­zine we travel far and wide with vis­its to the Empty Quar­ter in Oman, Ohrid: the City of Light in Mace­do­nia, and Cu­pid's Cove in Canada. Hi­lary Bradt looks at the artis­tic mo­tifs found in the lit­tle churches in Devon and is also our Trav­eller's Tale this is­sue – with a fas­ci­nat­ing story of be­ing caught up in the En­tebbe cri­sis in July 1976.

We have a num­ber of fea­tures on art events in­clud­ing the Sil­ver Cae­sars at Wad­des­don Manor, Dutch Golden Age paint­ings from Na­tional Trust prop­er­ties at the Hol­burne Mu­seum in Bath, and the site of Pom­peii and Her­cu­la­neum be­ing used as a back­drop to a new artis­tic ven­ture. In­trepid Trav­eller is back with adventurer K.C. Gan­dar-Dower and we meet Sarah Du­nant, an award-win­ning nov­el­ist who dis­cov­ered some shock­ing rev­e­la­tions when re­search­ing her Re­nais­sance nov­els.

I must end on a sad note. A fre­quent con­trib­u­tor to this mag­a­zine, Lucy Mal­lows, died un­ex­pect­edly at Easter. Lucy was a fine writer, lin­guist and pho­tog­ra­pher and leaves be­hind an im­pres­sive body of work. We feel very lucky that she loved writ­ing for Time­less Trav­els and will miss her very much.
