dear readers, wanderlust club members,

For a very long time, we’ve taken travel as granted. Yet for more than a year now, many of us have had to fulfil our wanderlust only through armchair travel, through throwbacks to our travel memories, through virtual travel. Indeed, we’re so grateful to you for keeping your wanderlust alive through our magazine. This edition is quite special. As details on the resumption of travel are finally emerging, we are proud to present you with our biggest issue ever! You’ll experience an enhanced look and feel throughout, with inspirational photography and insightful, stimulating travel writing. There’s a whole new range of features and sections that have been added (see right); what does remain intact, is our commitment to bringing you the most rejuvenating ideas for authentic travel, for sustainable travel, for…

Montpelier at twilight, Vermont, USA With a population of just under 8,000, the USA’s smallest state capital was originally named after the city in southern France. The ambience, however, is quintessentially New England, with visitors exploring quaint architecture, a lively arts scene and a diverse range of restaurants, largely thanks to the presence of the New England Culinary Institute. The city’s crown jewel is the impeccably restored Vermont Statehouse, one of the oldest and best preserved in the country – complete with a distinctive gold-leaf dome. With a number of Vermont’s famed ski resorts under an hour’s drive away, and just 15 minutes from Ben & Jerry’s original factory (do the tour), it’s a great base from which to experience the Green Mountain State. © Sean Pavone/Alamy Rolling out the carpet for Semana…

Journey journals I recently put together a photo book of shared worldwide adventures for a friend’s 60th. We started travelling together in 1989 so there were many photographs to browse; lockdown afforded me the many hours this took. Reading the travel journals I kept instantly took me back to the memories that I would otherwise not have been able to recall. I am so glad that I took time to write these journals as I was able to accompany many of the photos with an original narrative. I particularly enjoyed recounting our experience of the Trans-Siberian railway in 1998. I wonder how this trip would differ now. I love to look at travel photos, whoever they belong to, but the power of the written word cannot be underestimated and I would always…

“Catching up on @wanderlustmag and this column from @LolaAkinmade has beautifully captured everything I miss most about travel: the people.” @Lorna_Explorer ”I can’t travel at present, but I still travel through this magazine. I have tried other travel magazines, but this is the one that I stick to, as I have from issue 1.” David De’Ath “Was meant to be going after the northern lights and then going storm chasing this year. Both cancelled. Maybe next year...” @anarchy4angels [On Surrey tips...] “Langley Vale Wood near Epsom is one of the Woodland Trust’s hidden gems. There’s a 4km walk that takes you past a series of sculptured soldiers.“ Hannah Theobald…
