Timeless Travels Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Iam de­lighted to bring you a won­der­ful Spring is­sue filled with trav­els to Spain, China, Amer­ica, the Nether­lands, Bel­gium, France, Italy and Turkey. We have a gorgeous fea­ture on walk­ing along the Ly­cian coast in Turkey with Theresa Thomp­son, which I must ad­mit makes me want to jump on a gulet straight away, and Matilda has been cruis­ing down the Seine, ex­plor­ing the wealth of art and his­tory along the way.

Dun­can J.D. Smith in­tro­duces us to some of his favourite, and less well-known, sites in Bos­ton, and Lucy Mal­lows walks the Camino way, which looks ab­so­lutely glo­ri­ous. In June, the life and lega­cies of Rubens, Brueghel and Van Eyck form part of the launch of a three-year Flem­ish Masters pro­gramme in Flan­ders so we bring you the high­lights of this year's events, along with a week­end in An­twerp, so you can start plan­ning your vis­its now.

I love a good mummy (who doesn't?), and so I'm ab­so­lutely de­lighted that Ma­ree Browne has shared her visit to the Urumqi Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal Mu­seum in west­ern China with us for our Mu­seum Fo­cus – it has some of the best pre­served mum­mies in the world from the Tak­la­makan desert.

Fi­nally, I would like to con­grat­u­late the three fi­nal­ists of the Bradt New Travel Writer of the Year com­pe­ti­tion, whose en­tries are in­cluded in this is­sue. The stan­dard of writ­ing was very high and Alan Packer is a wor­thy win­ner. Per­haps it could be you next year? Happy read­ing!
