Welcome to the April 2010 issue of online magazine Perceptive Travel, the home of great travel stories from book authors and the latest notable travel book reviews. Here's what we've got in store for you:
Once Upon a Time in Vienna - Amy Rosen
Sometimes travel can be a fairy tale with a happy ending. Amy Rosen becomes a princess and breezes through sumptuous feasts, horse-drawn carriages, and a grand ball in Vienna.
The Fish That Made London - Donald Strachan
Something fishy has always been going on at Billingsgate Market in London—no matter where the powerful odor was located at any given time.
A Tale of Two Music Cities - Tim Leffel
To immerse yourself in the roots of popular music, go get schooled where it all started: in Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee.
Nubian soul from upper Egypt, European whimsy from Belgium, Syrian jazz, and some watered down strumming from Jorge Strunz.
