welcome…

On a recent trip in Sweden one of my fellow travellers was singing the praises of our inspirational, knowledgeable guide. “I usually travel independently,” she said, “But am now realising how much better the experience is with a great guide. This is amazing!” So true… and I suggested she nominate our guide in next year’s Wanderlust World Guide Awards. The only global award for the heroes of the travel world, we honour this year’s best of the best on page 86. Of course, these pages are a great source of knowledge too. Way back in my pre-Wanderlust days I was an official Bounty bar taster at Mars, so I was delighted to find out where the iconic TV ads for the sweet delight were filmed (P31). Ben Lerwill’s journey through Kyushu…

Star letter A drop in the ocean Gareth’s mention of the Azure Window in Gozo [issue 198,July/August 2019] brought back nostalgic memories. I cannot believe it is gone. Without the tiny figures to compare it against – almost doll like along the roof – the grand scale of the stone arch Azure Window would be difficult to gauge from this photo. However, it is sad to think that millions of similar footfalls would have contributed to its demise. It looks so strong, so indomitable and yet this picture is less than 10 years old. Perhaps we need to take a pause here and reflect on the tiny things we do – each bit adding like drops in an ocean, until it is too late. Nandini Chakraborty, via email Arch enemies? I was very surprised to…
