Read the latest issue
Hello… and a very warm welcome to the spring issue of The Journey.
As the countryside once again becomes a place of dappled woods and birdsong, of chuckling rivers and green hillsides, it’s a time of year for hope and optimism — two things that never go amiss. Here at YHA we have good cause to feel positive about the months ahead, with many of our hostels reopening their dorms after Easter, and plans afoot to make 2022 a year to remember.
In this spirit, we’re using this issue to really celebrate the joys of being outdoors, taking a closer look at our many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, jumping in the bike saddle in the Lake District, and picking out nine great hostels for National Trail walkers.
Elsewhere we meet writer Anita Sethi, whose recent memoir details her memories of walking the Pennine Way, and adventure filmmaker Frit Tam. You’ll also find the usual news and reviews, as well as Let’s Go!, our special pull-out kids’ section.
Enjoy the read — and here’s to the adventures that 2022 has in store.
