I was recently asked “ What inspires you?”

I’d have to say that the beauty and sheer resilience of our natural world is a daily inspiration to me. The healing power of just being out in nature, feeds my soul. Seeing how quickly she can bounce back from years of abuse by us humans serves as inspiration to keep going, to keep highlighting important conservation issues and to keep the pure magic of travel alive for our readers. I’m inspired by people who have a zest for life, no matter their circumstance, I’m inspired by my husband and two wonderful kids who encourage me to keep going even when I feel like giving up. I’m inspired by someone, completely unknown to me, smiling at me spontaneously as we pass each other on the street. It gives me hope and reminds me that there is still so much good in our broken world. We just have to choose to see it.

Having said all that I hope our June edition inspires you to keep travelling despite the pandemic ( in a safe manner of course) and I hope it inspires you to keep making a difference on this planet.

As Mandy Hale said “ To make a difference you don’t have to be brilliant, rich or perfect – you just have to care.”

Keep safe and keep travelling!
