Hurrah! Despite all the frustrations there’s finally green shoots of optimism in the world of travel. With very promising news on the vaccine front, and with more and more countries opening their borders again, travel companies have reported a welcome stampede in enquiries. So what will 2021 bring? After such a surreal year, one thing that is clear is that people want to make the most of their travels and also there seems to be an urge to do something new. So on page 32 we take a look at ideas for you to try in the coming year. Being winter, we couldn’t resist going in search of the northern lights (p50) and also raising a dram or two of warming whisky in beautiful Islay (p74). But, like me, you may be…

Nice to meet you... Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia Photographer: Michael Poliza “A journey is best measured in friends, rather than in miles.” Tim Cahill Okay, so we may be a little way off shaking hands again – remember shaking hands? – or planning that trip to Bolivia’s iconic mirrored salt-flats (aiming for the December-April wet season for that perfect mirror effect). But it doesn’t seem too far off either, does it? As we get optimistic about what the new year may have in store for us, we venture back to one of our favourite sources of photographic inspiration. Michael Poliza’s glorious The World, out now in an updated edition. You know, that looks like the sun rising over the horizon to us... © 2019 Michael Poliza. All rights reserved.

Star letter Lost in transit Watching Sir Michael Palin in Travels of a Lifetime reading from his notebooks brought back memories of a visit to China that my wife and I did in 1988. I kept a daily account of our activities, ensuring that observations that the camera could not portray were logged. On our last day in Hong Kong we were so busy I did not have time to do any writing, but there was plenty of time on the flight home to complete the notes. At a stop for refuelling I put the notebook in the pocket in front of my seat and we had to vacate the plane. To my horror, the cleaners had made a clean sweep and my notebook of the three weeks of travel had…
