Gone but not forgotten We go all Indiana Jones this month, exploring the relics of long lost worlds such as Jordan’s Petra (pictured) As I write this, UK politics is going bonkers, and everyone I meet is fed up with the ‘B’ word.

B is for Beguiling. We often get excited about exotic lands, but Graeme Green’s feature on Scotland’s beguiling islands of the Inner Hebrides (p44) will have you…

Vanessa Gibbs First 24 hours Travel writer Vanessa has explored Panama City on several visits. Having left each time with a longer, not shorter, list of things to do, she was excited to share her ideas for a perfect day there (p159). My favourite lost city: “The old capital of the Mughal Empire, Fatehpur Sikri, in India. The empire may be long gone, but these sandstone palaces with their vast courtyards and ornate carvings are still there to marvel at.” George Scott Short break Journalist George Scott first visited Girona as a cyclist and quickly fell in love with its cute cobbles and medieval old town, so he enjoyed compiling this month’s Short Break feature on page 163. My favourite lost city: “Uxmal is…

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”Jawaharlal Nehru, independent India’s first prime minister The misty Mahal Agra, India Photographer: Michele Falzone/AWL Images It is the burden of most visitors to the Taj Mahal that they have to drag themselves out of bed pre-dawn to take a photograph devoid of crowds.
