Check out the new issue of Perceptive Travel for stories on New Zealand, Argentina, Vietnam, Italy, and…Turkmenistan.
In the September/October Perceptive Travel issue, Edward Readicker-Henderson takes his long name on an equally long trip, just to see some bras hanging on a fence in New Zealand. Graham Reid motors around the Amalfi region of Italy checking out the legend of a flying saint. Jeff Greenwald returns, this time with a dispatch on tracking rare primates on Cat Ba Island, Vietnam.
