Trains, you’ve got to love them. No, not packed commuter trains, but the civilised ones which give you a true slow travel experience, letting you absorb your surroundings and wonder at the little vignettes of life you pass. Read our European rail journeys round-up on page 60 and I defy you not to be inspired to go jump on one of them as soon as possible. We experience slow travel too in the timeless Isles of Scilly (p96), take a walk on the wild (dog) side in Zimbabwe (p46) and hike the remote villages and lakes of Guatemala (p80). Don’t forget to enter our Travel Photo of the Year competition (p122) – you could win an amazing trip to Texas. And talking of awards, Wanderlust has just picked up yet another trophy…

Sue Watt Zimbabwe feature Wildlife conservation has always fascinated travel writer Sue. In this issue, she fulfilled a 16-year-long dream – spying the bold and beautiful painted wolves of Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools NP (p46). My first great rail trip: “Zimbabwe’s Stimela Star, a restored vintage train running overnight from Victoria Falls to Hwange NP. It’s not luxury, but it’s fun, with bags of character. It’s a brilliant way to start a safari.” Nicholas Dyer Zimbabwe feature Wildlife photographer Nick’s address is often ‘A Tent Somewhere in Africa’ – but his passion lies in capturing the character of Mana Pools NP’s painted wolves (p46). My first great rail trip: “The Lunatic Express – a nocturnal adventure from Nairobi to Mombasa in run-down luxury. It ends as the languid locomotive greets the African dawn, while antelope look on with ambiguous interest.” Alastair…

Walk in the park Canyonlands National Park, Utah, USA Photographer: Michele Falzone Sheer sandstone cliffs and burnt-orange terrain light up the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands NP, but it’s the trek to the top of its Mesa Arch at sunrise that is truly unforgettable. Arrive just before dawn, then wait for the first few rays to strike the underside of the arch for a spectacle that will live long in the memory. © Michele Falzone/AWL Images “Wilderness is not a place of isolation but contemplation. Refuge.”Terry Tempest Williams, author and activist Getting a leg up Inle Lake, Burma (Myanmar) Photographer: Alex Treadway Reed beds and floating plants make for tricky navigation, but Burmese fishermen have the perfect solution to sculling the waters of Inle Lake. Paddling past stilted houses and water gardens on slender teak canoes, they…

Star letter A welcome discovery On one of my first visits to Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2017, a colleague suggested I join her in climbing Grouse Mountain (1,250m). She’d never done it but assured me it “couldn’t be that hard”. So, off we went, unprepared, and found it really did live up to its reputation as ‘Mother Nature’s Stairmaster’. We struggled up – jet-lagged – in the wrong kind of footwear and without enough water, and I promised myself I’d never endure that again. Two years later, I did do it again and even shaved 20 minutes off my time. The views and activities at the top are worth every second, and you don’t have to be an avid hiker to do it. I’m living proof, and you won’t regret it –…
