National Geographic Traveller (UK) Jul/Aug 2020 available on newsstands now

The Jul/Aug issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) celebrates the reasons we choose to travel. We asked Pico Iyer, Levison Wood, Christina Lamb, William Dalrymple, Emily Chappell, Robert Macfarlane, Ade Adepitan, Felicity Aston and many more household names to reveal the places they hold dearest and the travel experiences that have shaped their lives.

Whether it’s a wild encounter, a meeting with someone new, or simply a moment of realisation that your place in the world isn’t quite what you thought it was, travel has the potential to profoundly change each of us. As part of this issue’s cover story, their collection of stories — spanning destinations as diverse as Delhi, Tibet, Afghanistan Alaska, Botswana and the UK — is testimony to the transformative, magical power of travel.
