Wel­come

Timeless Travels Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Iam de­lighted that we are fea­tur­ing ar­ti­cles in this is­sue on two coun­tries not vis­ited be­fore in the mag­a­zine: Ja­pan and South Africa. Chrissie Walker ex­plores her favourite shrines and tem­ples in Ja­pan while Michael Ed­wards was so moved by the plight of the Khomani San tribe that he felt com­pelled to share their story.

One of the rea­sons I love edit­ing this mag­a­zine is be­cause I learn so much. This is­sue's In­trepid Trav­eller, Maria Sibylla Me­rian, trav­elled to the Dutch colony of Suri­name - a coun­try I'd never heard of. Closer to home we have a post­card from Hadrian's Wall and a re­port from the Limes route in Ger­many which fol­lows in the foot­steps of the an­cient Ro­man em­pire.

On the arts side we have lots of news and re­views from the art world and ex­hi­bi­tions on show this Au­tumn, as well as an un­usual ex­hi­bi­tion in Florence that in­volves art and fash­ion, and we look at the con­nec­tions be­tween Escher with his home town of Leeuwar­den in the Nether­lands, cur­rently joint Euro­pean Cap­i­tal of Cul­ture 2018. In clos­ing I must men­tion con­trib­u­tor Betsy Mark, au­thor of Mary Jane

Colter and the Grand Canyon: Just Amaz­ing in the Au­tumn 2016 is­sue. She sadly passed away re­cently af­ter a two-year jour­ney with can­cer. Be­sides be­ing an avid trav­eller, she was also a tal­ented singer and ex­cep­tional per­son in every as­pect of her life. She will be sorely missed by us all.
