As we end our 7th year of publishing, thanks for hanging in there with us!
This month in the webzine, our eclectic mix of travel stories involves a lot of movement: hiking on an island in Denmark, walking the Robert Louis Stevenson trail, and exploring the Rocky Mountains of Utah on skis and snowshoes..
We're psyched to welcome bestselling author Tony Cohan to our pages, especially since he lives a five minute walk from where I am right now. He explores a part of Denmark that's got some edge: Bornholm. It has been many years since we featured Robert Reid's work and we're glad to have him back as "finds his donkey" in rural France. I contribute the third feature this month after hitting three of the best ski resorts in the USA, in what was once is sleeping mining town: Park City.
Gillian Kendall reviews several new and noteworthy travel books this month, while Laurence Mitchell spins some world music from multiple continents.
