…our cover theme is ‘Go further’, to which I’ll add ‘and tread lightly as you do’. At Lonely Planet we’ve always held that responsible travel can be a force for good. We’ve been underscoring that point by working closely with the UN World Tourism Organization to support the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, and it flows through the pages of this issue. The belief includes pioneering beyond the crowded hotspots of Iceland (p43), learning from Indigenous guides in far Northern Queensland (p56), and supporting local producers in tiny São Tomé and Príncipe (p76) – tasting some of the world’s best chocolate along the way!

MOSCOW, RUSSIA Red sky at night I took this picture of Moscow, where I live, during evening drinks with a friend at the rooftop Kalina Bar. We arrived at sunset and I immediately went to the balcony to shoot the view, because when it’s getting dark, you can lose the shot if you wait for a couple of minutes. The view was so incredible that even a good shot can hardly convey its beauty. For me, the highlights of the photo are the illumination of the Radisson Royal Hotel and the beauty of Federation Tower East – the highest skyscraper in Europe. I find this juxtaposition of classical Stalinist architecture and 21st-century glass skyscrapers very striking. BANFF NATIONAL PARK, CANADA Sleep on it I recently took a solo trip to Canada and knew that I…

where on earth is this?

SOMETHING TO DECLARE In praise of the holiday jog: there’s no better way to find your bearings in a new city “It was first thing on the first morning on my very first trip to New York City, so one might reasonably expect it to have involved a lie-in of sorts, followed, perhaps, by a visit to the brunch joint next door for that all-American experience: a wobbly stack of fat, syrup-doused and sugar-powdered pancakes. But instead, awake early with a befuddled body clock, I slipped on my trainers and took to the streets of Manhattan, led by my phone’s GPS past herds of commuters and bumper-to-bumper traffic towards the East River Park path that passes under Brooklyn Bridge. It was a similar story on a disgustingly windy, rainy March morning in Copenhagen, when…

die de muertos (day of the dead)

The cempasúchil, or Mexican marigold, is a symbol of the festival. One legend has it that an Aztec girl mourning for her lover killed in battle was turned into the flower by the sun god, while the warrior came back as a hummingbird. One universal foodstuff at the festival is pan de muerto: this sugary pastry is topped by crossed strips resembling bones. Its round shape symbolises the cycle of life and death. 1500 Number of extras used to film the Day of the Dead parade in Spectre, in which cinema-goers see Daniel Craig’s 007 on a high-octane pursuit through Mexico City while vast crowds in costume and giant skeleton-shaped floats thronged the streets. 1Number of genuine Day of the Dead parades ever held in Mexico City.
