New Year, New You? Apparently, statistics show that only 8% of New Year’s resolutions are kept. Oh dear. Well, I looked back at my 2019 ones and some I did certainly not achieve (don’t think I will ever get the shape of a supermodel), but my travel resolutions were a success at least, with several new countries and regions visited. For 2020, I already have a wishlist longer than is viable, and am wrestling with wanting to travel longer and deeper rather than often. Now, having spent hours sifting through the exciting Top New Trips (p58) from some of the best travel companies around the list has got even harder. We found it tough to get the prospects down to just 50 for this issue, but we eventually did so hopefully…

Holly Budge Dispatches Zimbabwe’s people and wildlife are particularly close to adventurer Holly’s heart. And it’s easy to see why. On p30, she reveals all about life on the anti-poaching frontline with her charity How Many Elephants. It’s fearless and we love it. New travel resolution? “I will keep reaching for the stars! What you can achieve with passion, grit and a positive mind-set is beyond even your wildest dreams.” Anthony Lambert Gulf Islands article As for his love of the Southern Gulf Islands, writer Anthony puts it down to countless visits – courtesy of his Canadian wife. On p90 he takes us on an action-packed adventure across these islands. New travel resolution? “Last year I wrote about the dramatic story of BC’s Kettle Valley Railway, so this year, I plan to cycle the 650km trail, crossing its remarkable…

“Wandering re-establishes the original harmony that once existed between man and the universe.”Anatole France, author Arch nemesis São Jorge, Azores, Portugal Photographer: Massimiliano Broggi To explore the coastal fajãs – lava landscapes – of São Jorge Island is to witness nature’s power writ large. The blackened basalt archways loom over the waves, a relic of the volcanic wrath that formed the Azores: not even a rosé sunset can soften this scene. To find the Arco da Fajã da Ribeira da Areia, follow the stone signposts from Ribeira da Areia, on the meandering path that leads down to the ocean. Here, a handful of houses teeter on the North Atlantic shore, home to a tiny community that lives betwixt lava rubble and pummelling waves. A rock and a hard place indeed. © Massimiliano Broggi/AWL Images Three lions…

your letters

Star letter An award-winning guide I read with interest and a smile on my face, the article in Wanderlust Magazine (issue 202, December 2019) regarding Lyn’s journey through Georgia with Dario. My husband and I travelled with Wild Frontiers in 2017 on their Across the Caucasus road trip and our guide was...? Dario, of course. We found him very engaging; always there to help. We talked a great deal the day we visited Baku, as it was the ‘setting up time’ for the F1 Race and we enjoyed a common interest in motor racing. The trip itself, I would recommend to anyone who has a ‘wanderlust’ for this part of the world. We have fond memories of Dario. Michele & Steve Grainger, via email Diamond traveller Thank you Wanderlust for helping me explore my 60th…
