This issue's theme is 'seize the moment'. After all, it doesn't matter how good we are at stuff, if we don't 'seize the moment', will those moments every come around again?
For some people seizing the moment might mean learning a new skill. For others, it could mean improving their skill base or undertaking a challenge they are equipped to do, but have been putting off.
So in this the third of our 2019 issues, as you'll see from the photos below, we have lots of amazing stories about people who've seized the moment. We also take a look at a couple of cultures very that are different to those most of us know about, namely the Mai Meri of Malaysia and the Hunza of Pakistan.
There's also stories from the USA, Australia, the UK, plus more unusually the Arctic and Oman.
Meanwhile, if you didn't get around to subscribing in 2018, why not go to the buy magazine tab, where you can still get hold of all four of our amazing 2018 issues, which cover topics like mental health, adventuring with children, conquering fears and coping with change, as well as visiting a multitude of countries including Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Canada, China, France,Indonesia, Italy, Nepal, Morocco, Peru, Romania, Spain, South Sudan, USA, UK and Venezuela.
As always, with masses of high resolutions photos, the magazine might take a minute or two to download, but as they say, good things come to those to wait. Personally, I get the fastest download with Google Chrome. Happy reading everyone, we really hope you agree this issue really does empower, educate and entertain.
