Wel­come

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - Upfront -

We’ve gone wildlife-tas­tic this is­sue, bring­ing you plenty of ideas for get­ting close to na­ture. Mark Strat­ton’s story of a pi­o­neer­ing eco-camp in Cam­bo­dia (p22) is in­spir­ing, but makes you re­alise how vi­tal it is that trav­ellers sup­port such ini­tia­tives. Mean­while, I’m just back from one of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary wildlife trips of my life – see where on p74. Both sto­ries high­light how tourism can be a power for good.

The same can be said for Wan­der­lust. We of­ten hear from read­ers how the mag­a­zine has changed their life. If this ap­plies to you, then please do let us know as we’d like to fea­ture some of your sto­ries in our spe­cial 25th an­niver­sary au­tumn is­sue; email info@wan­der­lust.co.uk with the sub­ject line: ‘ Wan­der­lust changed my life’.

And we hope to meet with many of you at a cou­ple of up­com­ing events at Lon­don’s Royal Ge­o­graph­i­cal So­ci­ety. We will be hold­ing an ex­clu­sive reader even­ing with the Belize Tourism Board in Septem­ber, and an ex­tra-spe­cial edi­tion of the Wan­der­lust World Guide Awards in Oc­to­ber. Please do come along to both (p17).

Happy trav­els, Lyn Hughes Ed­i­tor-in-chief/co-founder
