Lyn -with -lemurLyn Hughes, Editor-in-chief, Wanderlust Travel Media

In 1992 Lyn and her late husband, Paul Morrison, were bored on a flight to South America and so schemed out their ideal travel magazine on the back of a sickbag. The idea stuck and, returning to the UK a few months later, they launched Wanderlust  magazine from their spare bedroom.

Lyn strongly believes in tourism as a force for good, benefiting local communities, wildlife and the natural world. During the course of Lyn's own travels she has been attacked in the night by soldier ants in Africa, spent the night in a sailor's bar in the Azores, and been chased over a barbed-wire-topped 6ft-bank by an angry Irish bull. Her idea of hell would be a week on a beach.

Phoebe _ready

Phoebe Smith, Editor, Wanderlust magazine

Phoebe came to  Wanderlust  in 2012 by way of a number of magazines and newspapers both in the UK and overseas, most recently Trail  (the outdoors, walking and  mountaineering title). As such she is most at home in the world's high places - from teetering on Iceland's glaciers, seeking out the highest  jebel  (mountain) in Jordan, sleeping on the top of Telescope Peak in Death Valley, or scrambling in Snowdonia. She's author of  The Camper's Friend, and is currently writing a walking guide book and a travel narrative both out in 2013.
