Welcome to the July 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:
Three Walnuts, Three Pomegranates in Morocco by Zora O'Neill
A spontaneous hike in the northern Moroccan mountains yields magic, of a kind.
Blowing Through the Lower Florida Keys by Tim Leffel
After Irma came through like an unwelcome guest and trashed the place, Key West has mostly moved on. Further north, the whims of the hurricane winds left damage that man and nature will surely push past as they have over and over again.
Wining, Dining, and Cattle Driving in Uruguay by Claudia B. Flisi
The word "gaucho" is not exclusive to one country in South America. In the farmlands of Uruguay, you can stay at a working cattle ranch and ride horses with the men working the herds.
Coconut Mafia Friendship Club by Luke Armstrong
When a foreigner moves down Lake Atitlan to a new village, he finds that switching vendors comes with a sack full of emotional baggage.
Travel Book Reviews - William Caverlee
Lasting postal evidence of vanished countries, a collection of John Muir's writings, and an anthology of gripping stories from a regular contributor to our publication.
