Welcome to the January 2017 issue of online magazine Perceptive Travel, the home of great travel stories from book authors and the latest notable travel book and world music reviews. Here's what we've got in store for you:
Following the Faded Signs in Baja California - Lydia Carey
Traversing the whole Baja Peninsula on its single Route 1 highway, a couple doubting the "wild frontier" stories gets led astray by dubious signs pointing to sketchy roads of sand.
On a Blowout Budget in Boracay - Tim Leffel
A writer who was less than impressed with the Philippines in his backpacker youth visits Boracay as a tourist and finds a whole other dimension.
Last month marked the end of our 10th year of publication. While many magazines and travel websites have come and gone, we've continued to provide a forum for some of the best travel stories on the internet, month after month.
World Music Reviews - Graham Reid
An intricate weave of world music from a one-time classical singer, klezmer music for all seasons, and beguilingly strange pop music from a master of orchestral music and soundtracks.
Travel Book Reviews - William Caverlee
a novelist's observations on a whirlwind tour of Latin America, Travelers' Tales annual "best of" anthology, and a guide to free activities and entertainment around the world.
