DORSET COAST AM­BLE

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Our Year Of Discovery - Hay­ley Ward, art direc­tor @hay­leykaren­ward

My travel high­light… was a wintr y walk along the coast­line in Dorset. The stretch of path be­tween Lul­worth Cove and Mupe Bay is only open to the pub­lic on cer­tain days, and we were shar­ing it with hun­dreds of ul­tra-marathon run­ners. What made it par­tic­u­larly mem­o­rable was the still­ness: the sea was like a millpond, with no move­ment what­so­ever, and the steely colours – dr y grass­land, metal­lic sea and grey sky – looked like a paint­ing. And Mupe Bay and its chalk cliffs are just as in­cred­i­ble as the fa­mous Lul­worth Cove. My low mo­ment… was my birth­day – on a Greek ferr y, with noth­ing but an ap­palling ham and cheese toastie to cel­e­brate with. In 2019 I am most ex­cited about… plan­ning my first visit to Sri Lanka, in­spired by my col­league Ror y’s trip (see right).
