If there’s one word that defines summer 2021, it has to be “staycation”. Many of us are eschewing the traditional charms of sun-kissed beaches and exotic faraway locations for something closer to home. But where do you start? Our travel editor, Hope, has the answers in our comprehensive guide (p22). Whether you feel like a tent in the middle of nowhere or a more luxurious hotel, we have it covered. We all deserve a good break after the last year or so! What are you planning for your holidays? Do drop me a line and let me know. Enjoy the issue and have a great week.
