See the table of contents to the right for what we have in store for you this month. We've got kind of a mystical, magical theme running through this collection. We return to Spain with Beebe Bahrami, walking along the Camino trail and finding strange experiences. At the end of a tour through parts of Guatemala, I find myself fighting the wind god while my shaman fixes things with the help of a butterfly. Karla Tipton makes her debut here by looking into the curious resurrection—of both bones and reputation—of the often vilified King Richard III of England.
William Caverlee is back with detailed reviews of notable new travel books, while Graham Reid highlights some world music albums from multiple continents.
Make thie most of this month's travel stories because we're taking August off. Hey, travel editors need a summer vacation too! We'll be doing a retrospective then looking back at former stories you might have missed. Meanwhile, you'll still find plent of new material each week on the award-winning Perceptive Travel Blog.
WIN SOME STUFF!
We hand out cool travel gear and other prizes each month to our loyal readers. It seems quite appropriate that the winner who came out of the randomizer for the Hydro Flask Insulated Beer Growler and mug is from Portland. Congratulations to Karen H. who took a few minutes to read and enter. If you didn't enter, then don't cry in your pint.
