Wel­come

Timeless Travels Magazine - - NEWS -

This Spring is­sue is full to burst­ing with lots of travel sto­ries for you, be it vis­it­ing the con­trast­ing sites of Vol­u­bilis and Fez in Morocco, the an­cient sites of the Orkney Is­lands in Scot­land, vis­it­ing the bat­tle sites of Gal­lipoli or spend­ing a week­end in the fab­u­lous city of St. Peters­burg.

We also have some great art fea­tures: it is the 100th an­niver­sary of the death of Rodin in 2017 and much is be­ing or­gan­ised by the Musée Rodin in Paris, and Amer­i­can artist Craig Kraft en­dured some dif­fi­cult con­di­tions to see the old­est cave art in the world in Su­lawesi, In­done­sia. But the best news is that Plau­tilla Nelli, the first fe­male Re­nais­sance painter of Florence, is fi­nally hav­ing her own ex­hi­bi­tion at the Uf­fizi Gallery in Florence, start­ing on 8th March 2017. This ex­hi­bi­tion would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the tire­less work of the Ad­vanc­ing Women Artists Foun­da­tion and it is won­der­ful to see these women artists fi­nally be­ing given the credit that they are due.

Our in­ter­vie­wee in this is­sue is Nick Jub­ber, a trav­eller who writes with great style about his desert ad­ven­tures and the In­trepid Trav­eller is Alexan­dra David-Néel, who was the first visi­tor to Ti­bet at a time when it was closed to for­eign­ers. Dig diary is back, along with Adrian Phillips who tells us his Trav­eller's Tale, and a new fea­ture called 'TT Loves'. Happy read­ing!
