Another year is rushing past! I can't believe it is now September and soon it will be Christmas... Speaking of which, I must start with an apology with regards to the Christmas advert for a subscription to Timeless Travels if you are reading this in September. Unfortunately, being a quarterly magazine, the next edition will be out in December, and that is a little late to catch people thinking of what to buy their friends and family for Christmas! But a subscription definitely makes a perfect present for those who are hard to buy for, or for someone who wants something a little special and different!
Since the last issue, my friend Sophie cycled from Canada to Mexico, all the way down the west coast of America - taking nine weeks. It was a truly amazing feat complete with bears, raccoons and forest fires. You can read all about it on her blog: www.canadatomexico.uk. In this packed issue you can also visit America as we feature the spectacular Grand Canyon and the work of the little known Mary Jane Colter, as well as going ballooning in Cappadocia in Turkey and checking out the fabulous cities of Zagreb, Porto, Braga and Kraków. This year is also the 70th anniversary of Jordan's independence, so we have a look at how this was achieved, plus lots more to read and enjoy. Happy reading!
