At Lonely Planet, we realize that now is not the best time to travel to and from many places. As travel lovers, this is shaking us to our core; but we should all follow government advice and, as a further measure, consider if our journey is essential in the current context. 

While we keep you informed, we also invite you to continue to dream about the wonders of the world and prepare to travel when the time is right. We are writing some great stories to keep you inspired and entertained while at home. I personally love our recent wildlife webcams article, spotting animals for a few minutes was a much-needed distraction and a good reminder of how wonderful nature can be. 

We look forward to helping you realize travel plans very soon, and we’ll continue working to be prepared for this point too. 

Stay strong, informed and positive.
