Are you travelling yet? As soon as lockdown lifted I whizzed up to a rainy but beautiful Cumbria for a few days and it was invigorating to be out somewhere different. Sadly, I didn’t get to try trekking with fell ponies (p62) but have added that to my wishlist for next time. I’m still to get on a plane but hope to before long. I find I’m missing airports; especially seeing all the place names on the departures board that always sends a pang of wanderlust through me. You’ve been telling us in your droves about some of the things you’ve been missing too (p13 & p90). I found myself smiling with recognition at so many of them, including the ‘numb bum’. We’ve loved hearing your tales of lockdown too and have…

Sue Watt Lake District Sue has a passion for wildlife and has been writing about African travel and conservation for over 12 years. For this issue, she stayed closer to home, walking and wild camping with the Lake District’s endangered Fell ponies (p62). Insider travel secret? “Sierra Leone has a lot to discover. Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary would melt the hardest of hearts, and Tokeh Beach at sunset is just gorgeous.“ Mark Gilligan Viewfinder Photographer Mark shot a perfect rainbow in one of his areas of expertise: The Lake District (p10). Chalking up 45 years as a pro, Mark now also runs workshops in the Lakes and Snowdonia. Insider travel secret? “Research the location beforehand and once there, look for the unusual.

“To those who will see, the world awaits.”Michael Gates Gill, author Somewhere over the rainbow Wast Water, Lake District, Cumbria, UK Photographer: Mark Gilligan (wastwaterphotography.co.uk) Things are (hopefully) starting to look brighter for travel, the sun splintering through the clouds. This mountain-illuminating rainbow was captured arching over the almost 5km Wast Water Lake in the Lake District, a reminder that we don’t always have to go far for extraordinary travel experiences – and to prove it we traipsed around the Lakes leading an endangered fell pony (see p62). And for those who aren’t quite ready to explore beyond our back garden, we can be safe in the knowledge that the world will be waiting for us.…

Do you get the picture? My holiday to Greece was cancelled so, faced with two weeks in lockdown, I decided to do the next best thing... Julia Anderson Wow – this is amazing, Julia, thanks for sending it in. Any other Wanderlust readers have artistic talents that they’d like to share with us?

I’ve always enjoyed reading about places that I want to visit. I also enjoy seeing articles about places where I have been, including those on a two-year, round-the-world trip with university friends Dave and Nige at the start of the 1980s. I actually lost one when a man walked off with our…
