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!
