The 2nd edition of the Indie Travel Podcast Magazine arrived December 1. This issue is even better than the first issue, and that is quite an accomplishment. Craig and Linda Martin, the ever-traveling, ever-creative New Zealanders, have outdone themselves.
I hasten to assure you that I would love this magazine even if they were NOT publishing my book reviews. But they are, and I’m very happy to be part of such a great product. You can read my reviews of Paris Movie Walks, the Moon Fiji guidebook, and a beautiful coffee table book about explorations that have shaped our view of the world. I reviewed Paris Movie Walks here earlier and Explorations that Changed History appears on my suggested gift list (Number Two).
But enough about me–just imagine a new magazine, in this time of failing print publications, that features gorgeous photography and top notch travel writing. You’ve probably seen one or more of the regular columnists doing their travel writing thing in other venues–Kim Mance writes about Women’s Travel, Christine Gilbert Almost Fearless, writes about her switch from corporate life to high-tech travel writing, and Darren Cronian, who entertains and enlightens and infuriates us with Travel Rants does his thing. Craig and Linda Martin add beautiful features and practical goodies.
This issue features New Zealand summer as Craig leads us on a comprehensive tour of the two islands; European skiing, photos of China and so much more will keep me busy with the magazine for days.
