    Welcome to issue 1600 which is a bit of a milestone for us. Cue the fanfare and break out the party poppers… Alright back to it! We’ve got some great content for you this month. 

    If you’re stuck in a dead end job wishing you were somewhere else, fear not! We’ve got some great inspiration on your next trip or adventure. We’ve also been out and found ten of the worst jobs imaginable, so read on and you might just feel better about your pitiful existence.

So, what’s in this edition of TNT Digital Magazine?

Japan is more than sushi and geishas, skyscrapers and Hello Kitty, as Sophie Ibbotson finds out. If you’re an obsessive ski bunny, you might already know that Japan has some of the most exclusive ski resorts in the world. But even then, it may well come as a surprise to learn that Japan receives snowfall comparable to that in Patagonia, Alaska, and the Canadian Rockies.

We are happy to have Kaye Holland back with us. By the looks of things, she’s been flat out travelling. Not only has she been checking out how effective Homestay is in Madrid and Lisbon, but she’s also been to Medellin in Colombia. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a city steeped in dark history due to Pablo Escobar and friends and was once considered to be the most dangerous city in the world.

If you’ve not heard of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, then I think there might be something wrong with you. Hogmanay gets worldwide coverage and is the only three-day New Year celebration in the world. Just to wet your appetite, New Year celebrations first started in Scotland, which may explain how they manage to do it so well. There are a whole host of events happening, so we’ve put a schedule together for you to give you a hand. Time to get learning the words too Auld Lang Syne.

Rewind a week before that and it's Christmas. Turkey, tinsel and the Queen’s Speech isn’t for everyone, so we’ve put together a guide to help you choose how to spend your Christmas holiday wisely. Whether you’re looking for the heat in Thailand or the Christmas Markets in Prague, we’re here to help you get away from it all.

Winter is fast approaching and if you want to fit in like a local then you better get a taste for the good old-fashioned Sunday roast. We’ve given mention to a few of our favourites.

Looking forward to seeing you at the TNT/STA Travel Show at the Business Design Centre in Islington on Saturday 22 October 2016. We’ve got a few surprises lined up for this time, including some free beer...
