12 months of travel to off-the-radar idylls


TRAVEL is easy, but getting away from it all - and other tourists - is getting harder to do. It used to be that taking the road less travelled meant just that; now, it's more likely to be a highway well-used by many tour buses before you. If you're looking for off-the-radar places to go, check out Friday's issue of BT Weekend magazine, where we offer enough suggestions for every month of the year.

She shares with us her plan to level the playing field between men and women in the world of startups and angel investing.
