This month we're glad summer is in full swing now! Instead of the usual resorts on beaches, we're happy to offer unexpected destinations for all sorts of holidaymakers. Parents, it's time to introduce the beauties of the world to your young ones in Easy Trips and our Great Escape to Madagascar for a trip-of-a-lifetime encounter with elusive wildlife. To our flower children, maybe take a trip down memory lane and revisit the Summer of Love with our feature on California, USA. We haven't forgotten solo travellers in this issue; we've included a list of our favourite budget-friendly capsule hotels in Extraordinary Places to Stay. Have a great summer, everyone!
