What Team Lonely Planet has been up to this month


One highlight of recently hitting our 100th issue has been hearing from readers who’ve compiled a complete century. For Justin Hopgood (whose collection is top) the issue arrived just after the most special of deliveries – his son. ‘With all that having a newborn baby entails I am only now getting round to reading my beloved Lonely Planet Traveller!’ John Coote (below right) planned trips to the likes of Spain, Croatia and the US with the magazine, while Paul Martin (below left) says, ‘it encouraged us to try Venice out of season (it rained!) and the Pacific Coast Highway from LA to San Francisco. We visited Oman and have returned, and the Val d’Orcia will draw us back this year.’ A huge thanks to all the century-makers who got in touch: John Coote, Jane Ferguson, Justin Hopgood, Lizzie Howells, Paul Martin, Lyn Rawlinson, Sian Rogers, Helen Rosser and Pete Saville.

About Lonely Planet

In the May issue… We're spilling some travel secrets. Northeast India is the country's most overlooked corner – follow us on a Great Escape here to see rhinoceroses and meet hill-country villagers whose not-so-distant ancestors were headhunters. New Zealand's North Island may be better known, but using a campervan to get around opens up unforeseen vistas and possibilities. In other features, Northern Ireland proves to be a surprising gastronomic destination, while Casablanca's status as Morocco's largest city – yet one that features on few travellers' itineraries – means its Art Deco-era treasures hide in plain sight. Plus, discover 24 fantastic places to stay this spring, and much more
