For this is­sue we trav­elled to Sir Bani Yas Is­land to shoot Hol­ly­wood star­let Lind­say Lo­han for our June cover. “Why Lind­say Lo­han?” you ask. Never judge a book by its cover, I say. From New York to Dubai (the city she has called home for the last two years), via LA and Lon­don, Lind­say is some­one who em­braces new cul­tures, has an en­thu­si­as­tic sense of ad­ven­ture (she’s been bit­ten by a snake and a shark) and, as the tabloids would state, lives life to the full. Well, that’s what life’s about isn’t it? It’s for liv­ing! She’s also one of the most in­trigu­ing peo­ple I’ve ever met. Dur­ing the few days we spent to­gether I re­alised that the per­son I’d read about in the me­dia in the past was not the per­son I was roam­ing around with spot­ting gi­raffes in a jeep. She has a mag­i­cal aura, some­thing I can­not ex­plain. What I can tell you though, is that she is one smart, self­less woman. Read more about the new film she’s shoot­ing in Saudi Ara­bia and her World Is­lands project on page 98.

For the rest of the is­sue we bring you all the wan­der­lust in­spi­ra­tion you need, from your va­ca­tion wardrobe (on page 62) to the South Amer­i­can sanc­tu­ar­ies (page 132) the team has primed to the top of their bucket lists as we write this is­sue. Slim Aarons brings us some se­ri­ous pool­side glam­our on page 44 and on page 136 we tell you ev­ery­thing you need to know about trav­el­ling solo. Safe trav­els, and don’t for­get your pass­port!
