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).

“…until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.”Chinua Achebe, author King of the jungle Botswana, Africa Photographer: Andrew Aveley Lions have long reigned over the grassy plains of Botswana – but for how much longer? Photographer Andrew Aveley snapped this lone cat in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park as his tawny mane caught the rising sun. The latest in a charity series dedicated to conserving endangered wildlife, Remembering Lions reinforces a simple warning: if we don’t act now, we’ll be compelled to remember lions on page, and not in the wilds they should lord over. © Andrew Aveley/ Remembering Lions (£45; Remembering Wildlife) is available from 14 October; www rememberingwildlife.com.

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…

Remembering a visit to Minintale: “There are some places in the world I’d return in a heartbeat and Sri Lanka is one of them.” @delboy2828 Recalling Ireland: “I loved Trim. One of our favourites and we did it on a total whim.” @travelurbucket Sharing a hidden London gem: I love Postman’s Park, which has a memorial to people who died trying to save others. It is only small, but it’s fascinating to read the plaques.” Tabitha Green Remembering Marsaxlokk in Malta: “It’s a little gem of a place, especially this little fishing port” Adventures of a Bear…
