When I stepped onto the plane to Ecuador 26 years ago, I had little inkling that the flight was going to change my life, or that it would lead to the birth of a magazine that would still be here a quarter of a century later. But that’s the joy of travel – it has the power to surprise and, ultimately, change us.
To celebrate 25 years of Wanderlust, Wanderlust we have scrubbed ourselves up with a fresh, new look. We also cast our minds back to Wanderlust’s beginnings and a dabble in a bit of crystal ball gazing by looking at the next 25 years of travel (p95). And as if that wasn’t enough, we have launched a range of carefully curated Wanderlust Journeys (p148) ( – a series of trips tailored to the most adventurous of travellers.
I’d like to thank all of you for reading reading wanderlust; Wanderlust; it’s it’ amazing to think we have subscribers from 25 years ago! And I’d like to thank the Wanderlust team, past and present, for their r hard work and dedication. I have learned so much, and we couldn’t have grown and flourished without them.
And talking of growing, this is our biggest ever issue. issue I hope you find something inspirational in it for you. And I look forward to us stoking your travel passions for years to come. Happy travels,
Those were the days It was a trip to Ecuador in 1992 that sparked the idea for Wanderlust – the UK’S first travel magazine
