Shivanee Ramlochan: Reviews Editor

“When I read, I journey far. Travel writing, whether describing the trek to Everest, or a different way to go home, takes me further with every page. With Panorama, the map’s broader than ever before. It turns out everyone’s got a story to tell: from the mountain expeditioner to the woman who does your nails in a downtown salon. In Panorama, the destination is everywhere, in everyone. This is travel writing, for me: journeying beyond the realm of the unexpected, and breathing in new stories at every port of call.
