Welcome to the November 2012 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:
A Spiced-up Caribbean in Grenada - Bruce Northam
A far cry from the identical cruise ship ports and sealed-off resorts so prevalent in the Caribbean, Grenada is a spice island in flavor and in life.
No One's Too Sexy for Miami - Tim Leffel
On a trip to South Beach, Miami, a few days of perfect bodies and an onslaught of sexual imagery might just be too much of a good thing.
Syria In My Heart - Judith Fein
The horrifying massacres in Syria seem very personal to Judith Fein as she reflects on her trip to that country three years ago, and wonders about the well-being of the people she met there.
World Music Reviews - Graham Reid
Cuban music filtered and processed, bad economic but good musical news out of Greece, block-rockin' Balkan beats from NYC, and holy moments from Bulgaria.
Travel Book Reviews - William Caverlee
A guide to an ancient Roman road, an updated guide to the great American road trip, and a life well lived as a house-swapper.
