Wel­come

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - Upfront - Lyn Hughes

One of the most hotly an­tic­i­pated events of the Wan­der­lust year is the an­nual Reader Travel Awards (p131). We know that you’re the most dis­cern­ing trav­ellers around, so your opin­ion re­ally does count. This year’s re­sults were – as ever – a mix of old favourites but also con­tained some sur­prises, too. You awarded a brand new ‘Top Coun­try’ for in­stance, while I must ad­mit I’d never have pre­dicted Rus­sia en­ter­ing your top ten.

Given your in­trepid spirit, we visit some dis­tant parts this is­sue. Mark Strat­ton re­ports back from Pit­cairn (p104) and we seek out the world’s other re­mote is­lands (p116). Plus, Phoebe Smith walks Green­land’s Arc­tic Circle Trail, a route that only re­ceives 300 vis­i­tors a year (p82).

Talk­ing of ad­ven­tur­ous souls, bravo to the read­ers who made it to our ex­clu­sive Canada event in Lon­don at the end of Fe­bru­ary, brav­ing snow and ice. Look out for more reader events over the year, hope­fully at a time when you won’t re­quire cram­pons to reach the re­cep­tion! Happy read­ing,
