Yes, it’s time for a new issue of the Perceptive Travel webzine, where I serve as humble editor. As usual we dispense with the usual travel mag fluff and bring you some offbeat stories from book authors.
Joel Carillet brings you a story about Amritsar, India, that involves the search for a taboo pizza and even more unholy things on a cell phone screen. Michael Buckley relates the strange story of a mystical Tibetan lama that was not at all what he appeared. Graham Reid visits Uluru in Australia and takes a different path to avoid the tour buses.
I step up to do the world music reviews, from African Reggae to Tuvan throat singers. See it all here: Perceptive Travel February ’09.
Sign up for the newsletter and you can get in on our monthly giveaways. Last month it was sets of Lonely Planet books, this month a chance to see Europe through the back door, next month a very cool travel jacket from Outdoor Research. And hey, we only bug you once a month, when a new issue is out.
