26 PAGE DIGITAL EZINE SAMPLE www.natgeotraveller.co.uk/may12
Including the 77 Wonders of the World
The ninth issue of the 180-page National Geographic Traveller (UK) May/Jun 2012 issue has hit the newsstands, including the 77 Wonders of the World and the winners of the young travel writers’ competition.
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Cover Story: 77 Wonders of the World — highlighting the very best of the world’s most awe-inspiring sites. Broken down into lists of seven, we’ve come up with everything from natural and medieval wonders, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and UNESCO’s best to industrial and architectural gems — as well as a few personal choices.
Editor Pat Riddell said: “Although six of the Seven Wonders of the World are long gone — only the Great Pyramid of Giza survives — the concept continues to tantalise travellers. What is the Eighth Wonder? What are the New Seven Wonders? What, in fact, counts as a Wonder?
“Well, guess no more. To avoid further wrangling, we’ve come up with the National Geographic Traveller 77 Wonders of the World.”
Travel Writers’ Competition Winners: Last September saw the launch of National Geographic Traveller’s inaugural young travel writing competition in association with i-to-i to find the next generation of talent. Congratulations to the winning entry by Jess Connett – read this and extracts from five runners’ up inside the magazine and online.
