Welcome to the June 2018 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:
Moving Beyond the Bullet Holes in Bosnia and Herzegovina by Tim Leffel
A quarter century after the bloody Bosnian conflict ended, splitting up the former Yugoslavia, tensions still simmer just below the surface of the pockmarked buildings in Mostar and Sarajevo.
Finding my Way in a Goan Village by Debi Goodwin
A place to call home in Goa that sounds idyllic in theory can require some adjustment after arriving on site in India.
The Way of the Octopus in Galicia by Beebe Bahrami
Pilgrimage and pulpo take the author on a many-armed adventure into kindness and the unexpected along the sacred landscape and coastline of northwestern Spain
The Dharma Buddies of Auroville by Camille Cusumano
A sanctuary in southern India is perfect ground for old and new spiritual friends from around the world to reunite and flow together like the water.
Travel Book Reviews - Susan Griffith
Some comic riffs on traveling to undesirable destinations with a reluctant partner, a grassroots look at contemporary Iran, and an idealized compendium of sacred places that (allegedly) seep into your soul.
