How to survive your first festival
Festival-season is almost underway, and if you’re heading to your first festival this summer, then our guide to what to pack and how to actually enjoy the camping bit will prove indispensable.
Where to avoid in 2018, and where to go instead
Overtourism is becoming a major issue in several of the world’s most iconic destinations, putting pressure on natural attractions, infrastructure and the patience of locals.
