About Lonely Planet Traveller (UK)

Summer's here and this month we'll be showing you how to make the most of the season. In the June issue, we're trying colour therapy, reflecting on our friendships, building up our resilience, channelling our imagination with creative writing, making our own soap, cooking with edible flowers, stargazing in La Palma and much more.
