Ten years ago I was all set to visit the extraordinary island of Socotra but events in Yemen scotched those plans and my trip was called off. So, I was rather jealous of publishing legend Hilary Bradt when she told me she was heading there (p68) to fulfil a four-decade long dream. Of course, the world was pretty much our oyster back in 2010 with wars and political unrest about the only reason why you wouldn’t travel somewhere. Now, we’re at the mercy of a virus and deciding where to go can be a lottery. It makes planning this magazine a challenge, but we know from your feedback that you still love to research and dream. So on page 52 we have a Where to Go When that are ideas IF you…

David Andrews Viewfinder How do you judge an image’s quality? Whether the photographer hangs it at home is a good barometer. You can not only see freelance amateur photographer David’s justly garlanded image for Landscape Photographer of the Year 2020 on p12, but also on his own wall. Where will you first visit once restrictions lift? “I’d love to go to Iceland in the winter to capture the Northern Lights.” Maggie Sherrit Writing comp winner Maggie’s travel addiction began in the 1970s when she hitch-hiked from Edinburgh to Languedoc to find work in the vineyards – she now prefers to use train travel and home-exchanging. Her entry to our travel writing competition (p26) found her in Granada, Spain, requiring the kindness of strangers. Where will you first visit once restrictions lift? “Home-exchanging in Amsterdam and Antwerp.“ Gareth Clark Where to go,…

“When the wind of change blows, some people build walls, some build windmills.”Chinese Proverb The world turns... Herringfleet Mill, Suffolk Photographer: David Andrews The rising sun washes the frosted Suffolk flats with its warm salutations, as Herringfleet Mill – actually a 19th-century water pump – seemingly waves back at it. We’re going to be making the most of the British winter’s brittle beauty over the next few months – we may not get much of a choice in it – so it’s heartening to remember that there’s so many vistas to enjoy, with one sure to be near you. Giving us a visual aid on that front are the winners of 2020’s Landscape Photographer of the Year, from which this image was shortlisted. After all, a fresh local perspective could help brighten up your…

Star letter Lasting memories My partner’s father – David Speers – had been battling against cancer for the past six years and, unfortunately, the consultants recently told him that he had a short time to live. During his last few days with us, he took great pleasure in recounting some of the wonderful adventures he had, and while reading your latest magazine he was able to reminisce about two trips in particular – one to Uzbekistan and the Silk Road; the other, quite contrastingly, to the Wye Valley. It was a special time and brought his amazing wife Janey, my partner and I great comfort. For this, and all the other pleasure you’ve been able to bring to him during the many years of his subscription to Wanderlust, I want to say thank…
