perceptivetravelIf you haven’t already checked out this month’s articles over at Perceptive Travel’s online magazine, this weekend might be a good time to do so.

The three new travel articles are a mixed bag and definitely worth reading.

 Perceptive Travel editor Tim Leffel looks at Atomic Tourism in Tennessee and New Mexico, exploring the convoluted and complex histories of Oak Ridge, Tennessee (also known as “America’s Original Gated Community.”) and Los Alamos, New Mexico.

Regular contributor Edward Readicker-Henderson has an Untitled Story from Asolo, Italy. What appears to be a strange title becomes crystal clear as you read this multifaceted story about dealing with your own mortality and others in a small town in Italy.

And new contributor Eliot Stein debuts with Running with Faith, an entertaining  story of an American Quaker doing the annual Corsa degli Scalzi,  (the barefoot pilgrimage run) in Sardinia.

Plus as usual, there’s a roundup of New World Music Reviews guaranteed to get your feet tapping.

And don’t forget, if you’re a newsletter subscriber, you’re in with a chance for this month’s giveaway, one of two handmade sterling silver Wallet Pens.  Tim apparently swears by them which is a good enough recommendation for me. Of course, in order to win, you have to read the newsletter and answer a question or two.
