Travel Weekly

Pop the champers and fill your flutes! Travel Weekly’s April issue is out now and once again it’s a bumper edition filled with ripper content.

First off the bat, we speak to Colette’s visiting CEO Dan Sullivan, who’s helmed the tour operator for an impressive 27 years.

From humble origins in 1918, Collete is now on the cusp of a century of trading and you can read all about the journey from page 10.

Next up is our monthly photo essay, this time featuring the travel industry’s inked elite. Check out seven travel bods and their impressive tattoos and learn the stories behind them. Our own digital supremo Hannah Edensor even shares her story. It kicks off on page 16.

There’s also our regular swag of features to dive into. The Chaser’s funny man Chris Taylor, a good pal of Travel Weekly’s, goes rafting through the Grand Canyon and provides a typically humorous spin on the journey.

Next up, cruise Europe’s rivers on vessels that effectively double as floating art galleries; we’re not kidding when we say that Picassos adorn the walls of some ships.

And for some feel good reading, follow editor Tara Harrison to Cambodia, where she discovers the concept of empowerment tourism while travelling with Hands On Journeys.

There’s plenty more in store too, so until next month, sit back and enjoy the new look Travel Weekly.

What can you actually take from hotel rooms?

We could tell you this was an exclusive insight into what you can get away with stealing from hotels, but we’d be lying. We nicked it off an online forum.

Is your boss the Executive of the Year?

We tried to nominate ourselves for this award, but apparently ignoring the boss and pretending to be your own boss doesn’t actually make you CEO.
