As I write this, UK politics is going bonkers, and everyone I meet is fed up with the ‘B’ word. So, I thought I’d come up with some alternative (and less controversial) letters beginning with B. B is for Breathtaking. Whether it’s that first sight of Guyana’s Kaieteur Falls (p120) or glimpsing Jordan’s Petra – one of many great ‘lost worlds’ (p60) – through a flickering prism of candlelight, we always aim to bring you the world’s most breathtaking experiences. B is for Beguiling. We often get excited about exotic lands, but Graeme Green’s feature on Scotland’s beguiling islands of the Inner Hebrides (p44) will have you itching to go discover these wild shores on our doorstep. B is for Beautiful. Exploring the Mekong (p92) or discovering a different side to Mauritius (p78)…

Vanessa Gibbs First 24 hours Travel writer Vanessa has explored Panama City on several visits. Having left each time with a longer, not shorter, list of things to do, she was excited to share her ideas for a perfect day there (p159). My favourite lost city: “The old capital of the Mughal Empire, Fatehpur Sikri, in India. The empire may be long gone, but these sandstone palaces with their vast courtyards and ornate carvings are still there to marvel at.” George Scott Short break Journalist George Scott first visited Girona as a cyclist and quickly fell in love with its cute cobbles and medieval old town, so he enjoyed compiling this month’s Short Break feature on page 163. My favourite lost city: “Uxmal is home to some of Mexico’s most spectacular Maya ruins. Climbing the impossibly steep…

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”Jawaharlal Nehru, independent India’s first prime minister The misty Mahal Agra, India Photographer: Michele Falzone/AWL Images It is the burden of most visitors to the Taj Mahal that they have to drag themselves out of bed pre-dawn to take a photograph devoid of crowds. Arriving at 6am is the standard advice for grabbing unobstructed shots (as well as head over to the Mehtab Bagh – the garden over the river). But this drone image, taken on a misty morning, reminds us just why we bother. The Taj’s hazy form, materialising out of the mist, captures the romance that underlies this giant monument…

your letters

Star letter Frozen assets If you have ever dreamed of going to Antarctica, I can now tell you it is everything you dreamed of and more. My first stop was Deception Island, where we landed on a beach filled with penguins and seals.

Soaking up the Ukraine: “I loved Kiev and Landscape Park, with its huge wall murals and art nouveau buildings.” @mazonthego Reminiscing about Bali: “We did it in 2017 and it was one of my favourite trips. We’ll fly again as soon as possible because there is more to discover.” @estautopia Looking back on El Salvador: “We were pretty much lone tourists in El Salvador in ‘96, and sole guests at the now abandoned Hotel de Montana in Cerro Verde, near the Izalco volcano.” Alice Mamier Admiring Peru’s Rainbow Mountain: “Reminds me of the Coloured Earths at Chamarel in Mauritius.” @denis.browne.5…
