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, on their return, they launched Wanderlust magazine from their spare bedroom at a time when there were no other travel magazines in the UK. Since then, the magazine has been joined by a range of digital channels, events and awards. The magazine itself continues to thrive and has won numerous awards, most recently Travel Magazine of the Year in the inaugural Travmedia awards, at which Lyn was also presented with an Outstanding Contribution award.

You’re right, we did make up a word. But when you’re trying to sum up something that means a bunch of different things, sometimes you need to think outside the dictionary. At its core, Retravel means to reflect, rethink, and relearn how our travel choices impact the world, so we all can make more informed decisions and spread the most good. We’ve seen with our own purple eyes how travel can totally transform a community. Now we want to help the world see that too.
