Besides the oh-so-important dose of vitamin D, what summer really adds to our lives is colour. Fresh green leaves. Exquisite pink blooms. Dark seas turned turquoise by dazzling rays. Festivals rolling through streets like the contents of a kaleidoscope.
Just like summer, this issue brightened my day with its spectrum of colourful experiences. Our lead story provides an insight into the vibrant creatures found in Costa Rica’s rainforest, like the red-eyed tree frog and his bold green,
orange and blue apparel (p18). We come face-to-face with painted tribes in Papua New Guinea (p28), see peacocks in the wild in Sri Lanka’s Wilpattu National Park (p40) and witness the northern lights painting Norway’s skies green (p4). And of course it’s the golden sands and azure seas that win us over in St Lucia (p48). Wishing you many multi-coloured travels, Gill Leaning, Editor
