We're back with a new issue for October, with offbeat tales from Ireland, Singapore, and Canada.
Gillian Kendall decides to do more than observe Irish pub music and contacts someone who can work miracles in overcoming her natural rhythm deficiencies. David Drotar heads to the eastern townships of Quebec, where nature serves up forest wonders and close-ups of our galaxy in a dark sky. Michael Shaipiro dives deep into Singapore to try to get a handle on the dueling personalities of the prosperous Asian nation-state.
Then as usual we spin some notable world music albums, this month from Laurence Mitchell, plus Susan Griffith checks out some new travel books in detail.
Put your Gadgets in a New Case!
We give away something cool for travelers each month and congrats to reader Mark H. who scored $75 worth of artistic T-shirts from Smash Transit.
This time one reader is going to look downright successful when they step on a place with a new Convertabrief from Eagle Creek. This $175 checkpoint friendly padded laptop bag has plenty of room for everything else too. It can be carried, worn with a shoulder strap, or worn as a backpack. And you'll get Eagle Creek's usual quality construction and a "No Matter What" warranty.
How do you get in on a score like that? Simple, just sign up for our monthly e-mail newsletter and watch for the entry instructions the first week of each month. Or just follow us on Facebook and pay close attention to our feed. Your odds are about a billion times better than playing the lottery.
