Though they somehow arrive, unsolicited, at our home I tend not to read travel magazines. I crack their covers and am routinely disappointed by their promotion of shallow, over priced trips to luxury destinations. When AFAR arrived I almost directed it to recycling without a glance. But in a moment of weakness I began to leaf through it and was oddly drawn in. Then I read 'Bavarian Rhapsody'. Was that a travel story? It didn't seem like it but I'm dying to go to Mittenvaldt (not for the cuisine!). Then I read 'Beyond Belief, A journey to Antarctica' and was totally absorbed. Nothing about the accommodations or the food or the hip scene at night - a beautiful accounting of an encounter with the natural world. The clincher was 'Full of Grace'. Am I reading a travel mag or a literary journal? What a beautifully written piece (as were the first 2 mentioned)!
I will spread the word far and wide.
Thank-you for publishing great writers, sharing intimate experiences, that make me want to get out and continue to explore the world.
