National Geographic Traveller - May 2016 issue
  • Cover Story: In this month’s cover story we meet Australia’s motley crew of characters — from outback landlords to hot air balloonists — and discover what makes them some of the world’s most fascinating locals.
  • Destinations: We also explore unspoilt lowland jungle in Sri Lanka’s national parks, head to Bolivia’s salt lakes and silver mountains in Southern Altiplano and step back in time in Germany’s Brandenburg. Other highlights include a foodie tour of St Lucia, the brooding hinterland of England’s Lake District and crossing the world’s hottest desert in Iran.
