At long last, the wait is over. We can finally travel again. Except… not everywhere, not with certainty, and subject to many rules, restrictions and hefty testing costs. Travel still isn’t easy – but at least it’s now partly possible, albeit only to some places. Here at Wanderlust HQ though, we’re not limiting our coverage to current ‘green list’ countries. We endeavour to inspire your future travels – for this summer, this winter, next year and beyond. Many of our dream destinations remain hermetically sealed to foreign travellers. India is still off limits and faces great hardships due to the pandemic. But it will surely bounce back and, when it does, will once again welcome visitors with wide open arms. In this issue we tempt you with visions of northern Kerala…

Beale Street at twilight, Memphis, Tennessee, USA Photographer: Sean Pavone Immortalised in dozens of songs, Memphis’ ‘home of the blues’ has been the place to enjoy lively Southern hospitality for over 100 years. Beale Street’s 3km of venues once hosted the likes of blues and jazz legends such as Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters and BB King. Visitors experiencing the street’s cultural legacy and civil rights history can sample local staples – shrimp, catfish and grits – between the shows and then refresh themselves the morning after the night before in Memphis’ outdoors: there’s a walkable state park around 20-minutes drive out of the city, or you could kayak on the Mississippi before the lure of Beale Street pulls you back towards the neon and songs. Sunset view of the Capanna vineyard, Castiglion del…

Wander-ful webinars Just wanted to say thanks for keeping me amused with the great webinars you’ve been hosting. They gave me a travel fix so I decided I needed to sleep on a different mattress. For Easter, I bought a tent and an inflatable mattress and camped out in my back garden. All was well until a fox started pulling up the tent pegs at 3am. I never had that problem when camping in Jordan or Morocco! Sue Chant Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Malta online chat. It was really interesting to hear about the distinctive approach to museums. I can’t believe it's been 16 years since I was there. Must be time for another visit. Paul Cunningham A few months ago, I watched your webinar on Western Australia,…
