Issue 12: Journey

Introducing the Journey Issue: exploring those people whose work is shaped by landscape…

Elsewhere we follow in Sherpa Tensing’s footsteps, go mudlarking on the River Thames, float over the Alps by balloon and get ourselves stranded on a remote Mongolian lake. We hear about epic journeys across Africa by bike, and go in search of Shangri-La as we discover China’s first fine wine and explore the long history of boatbuilding in Plymouth.
