…we’re focusing on a theme that has become a regular for us over the years: travel secrets. Features set in four wildly diverse destinations offer contrasting takes on what the term can mean. We start with a Great Escape to Northeast India (p39); populated by endangered one-horned rhinos and descendents of headhunters, the region is a step beyond known worlds even for most Indian travellers. Our tour of New Zealand’s North Island by campervan (p54) reflects the benefits of slow travel, with detours into hidden coves and other random discoveries. We meet flourishing food producers in Northern Ireland (p66), and end with an insider look at Morocco’s largest yet most misunderstood city: Casablanca (p78). Subscribe!

COLLECTORS’ EDITIONS One highlight of recently hitting our 100th issue has been hearing from readers who’ve compiled a complete century. For Justin Hopgood (whose collection is top) the issue arrived just after the most special of deliveries – his son. ‘With all that having a newborn baby entails I am only now getting round to reading my beloved Lonely Planet Traveller!’ John Coote (below right) planned trips to the likes of Spain, Croatia and the US with the magazine, while Paul Martin (below left) says, ‘it encouraged us to try Venice out of season (it rained!) and the Pacific Coast Highway from LA to San Francisco. We visited Oman and have returned, and the Val d’Orcia will draw us back this year.’ A huge thanks to all the century-makers who got…

OVERALL WINNER AND PLACES CATEGORY WINNER OLLIE BATSON One of the judges, Picture Editor Claire Richardson said: ‘I love the way that the setting sun illuminates the dramatic peaks. Ollie’s shot has it all – composition, detail, colour and atmospheric light.’ Tip Research your location, wait for good weather and return for the golden hour, just before dawn or sunset. A small aperture is great for landscapes, lending sharpness throughout the view, but to compensate for low light the shutter speed will be slow, so a tripod is essential. DOLOMITES, ITALY Taking a peak My girlfriend and I were on a week’s photography trip in the Dolomites, and had been hiking the mountains around Cortina d’Ampezzo for several days. The weather had been hit-and-miss, and we were holding out for a dramatic sunset. The Averau-Nuvolau range…

SOMETHING TO DECLARE: There’s more to the Maldives than you might expect “Don’t judge a book by its cover, says the old adage.
