This month’s issue of Perceptive Travel webzine offers up more great travel stories from around the world.

In Moonshine Comes Out of the Woods, newbie Perceptive Travel contributor Vera Marie Badertscher wanders around Gatlinburg, Tennessee, sampling the moonshine and learning about the past, present, and future of White Lightnin’. Along the way, she discovers a few Tennessee Moonshine surprises.

Meanwhile, regular contributor Darrin DuFord heads north to Canada with the aim of feasting on seal in Montreal. But his search for this culinary specialty, which he had first experienced while traveling around Quebec’s Magdalen Islands, turns out not all that easy to find. When flapping his hands close to the body like flippers didn’t help, he resorts to goggling ‘Montreal’ and ‘seal meat’ and discovers Les Iles en Ville, one of the only two seals serving restaurants around.

And on the other side of the world, Luke Marguire Armstrong, writes about The Day I Did Not Meet Kenya’s Prime Minister. While at a soccer match in Nairobi, Luke discovers that the Prime Minister was at that stadium and despite the odds, he decided to try and meet the guy, with interesting results.

This month’s travel world music reviews by Graham Reid covers a variety of albums, including one by the Senegalese singer/guitarist Nuru Kane.

And this month’s travel book reviews by William Caverlee features books about the Silk Road, the Appalachian Trail, and Agatha Christie’s Grand Tour.

And as usual, Perceptive Travel editor Tim Leffel has rounded up another great giveaway.

This time, it’s two Armitron wrist watches. Technically, they are both men’s models, but they’re not too large and hey, either would make a good gift. See descriptions of both Armitron watches here.

To be in to win, all you have to do is you’ll have to watch your inbox for the Perceptive Travel newsletter or follow us on Facebook. If you’re not on our monthly e-mail newsletter list, sign up by clicking here.
