It feels quite strange to have written the final Travel Advice post (about the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong) and to be scheduling our final newsletters. However, the time has come and I am pausing the updates to Safe Travels Magazine while we work on securing a buyer.

There will still be some updates on our social media, signposting people to our excellent evergreen content. If you have landed on the website via one of those posts, welcome! The newsletters and social media channels will remain up and running as well, so sign up and follow along to get the latest news when it becomes available again.

If you are interested in finding out more about the website and what is included in the sale, please click through to this post which contains more information.

Two final pieces of travel advice

My two pieces of advice for all travellers are 1) research your destination(s) thoroughly and 2) buy appropriate travel insurance that covers likely activities and risks. These two investments can make a world of difference to you, your safety, and your loved ones.

Thank you
