It’s the last issue of the year for Perceptive Travel, which has been bringing you the best travel stories from authors on the move for seven years now. (January is our birthday.)
This month’s webzine issue is a special one as I’m welcoming a neighbor to the ranks and welcoming back a writer who hasn’t appeared for many years. My friend Tony Cohan lives a ten-minute walk from me in Guanajuato, based here after being largely responsible for the expat boom in San Miguel down the road. Back from Bornholm Island, he’s got a story on a part of Denmark that’s quite unknown and has a bit of edge to it. Denmark al Dente.
Robert Reid set off for rural France to walk in the shoes of Robert Louis Stevenson when he wrote the book Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes. There’s a signposted trail to guide travelers trying to find themselves or the meaning of travel. See How to Accept Your Donkey.
Last January I joined the crowds in a much higher tax bracket than me to ski the three elite resorts of Park City, Utah, with a break for snowshoeing, bobsledding, and whiskey. See From Miners to Movie Stars in Park City.
Gillian Kendall takes the reins this time on the travel book reviews, with one on chocolate, one on the global making of a coat, and a tame account of tales from a guidebook writer.
Laurence Mitchell breaks down some new world music albums and notable reissues, from jungle cumbia to Cuban klezmer to Roma rock.
No gear giveaway this month as we’re highlighting the three of them mine sites have going on with Passports with Purpose. Sign up for the newsletter though so you can be sure to have a shot at January’s prize.
Check it all out in the new issue of Perceptive Travel Webzine.
