The final issue of Lonely Planet Travel Magazine is out – and what a sad day it is for any of who care about the finest in print journalism.

For many years, it’s been one of the world’s very best travel publications with terrific long-form features, the most captivating writing, absolutely stunning, transportive photography, and a real passion for promoting both meaningful and responsible globetrotting adventures. And, from my professional point of view, the team were also – and always – an absolute joy to work with.

I wish all the talented folk who,  month in and mouth out, have produced such a lovely read every success on their next chapters.
