Anse Marron beach is the definition of paradise © Matt Phillips At Lonely Planet we’re simply obsessed with travel; rarely a week goes by when someone hasn’t just got back from an epic trip. This month Lonely Planet staff share some of their recent adventures, from fulfilling lifelong dreams in Mauritius to munching a mega sandwich in Porto.
Scoping out secluded beaches in the Seychelles Having spent a few weeks hopping between the islands of Mahé, Praslin, Desroches, North, Félicité, Silhouette, Fregate and La Digue, I’d thought it wouldn’t be possible to find another beach that would leave me speechless.

The average temperatures in the mainland are 13∞C (55∞F) in the north and 18∞C (64∞F) in the south. Summers are hot and dry. Winters are cold and wet.

1: Ride the #28 Tram
Trams in Lisbon (Dreamstime)
Step back in time with a ride on the iconic 28 tram, the symbol of Lisbon. The classic Remodelado trams first began rattling through the city back in the 1930s and haven’t changed much since.
