A. The interaction with elephants seems fascinating, but there is growing concern about the treatment of "tourist elephants", which may have been separated from mothers at a young age, according to the World Animal Protection group. However, there are ethical elephant sanctuaries where tourists are not placed in direct contact with animals. Experience the Boon Lott Elephant Sanctuary in Sukhothai Province (blesele.org) or Chang Chill near Chang Mai (changchill.com)

Q. We plan to travel in Europe for more than three months next year. When do the new post-Brexit travel rules in the European Union come into force? I understand that you will not be able to travel more than 90 days in a 180 day period? Alison Hopkins, by email.

A. The European Union Department of Exit says that a "period of implementation" during which trips to the EU will remain the same from now on until at least & # 39; by the end of next year. For details on post-Brexit travel in the EU, see: gov.uk/visit-europe-brexit.
