I’d like to add my welcome, in addition to editor Tim Leffel’s last week, to the newest blogger with the Perceptive Travel Blog, Alison Stein Wellner.

Check out her bio here — her credentials will knock your socks off, if you’re wearing any, and her writing truly speaks for itself. With her recent PT posts on finding perspective in the Redwood Forest and a quirky postcard collection outside of Shanghai, I’m already hooked. I assure you — you will be, too.
