Perceptive Travel

Tim Leffel, author of The World's Cheapest Destinations, has launched Perceptive Travel, an online travel magazine which will "continually publish interesting work from some of the best travel writers on the planet."

Perceptive TravelPerceptive Travel's stories are intended to challenge and entertain. In the January 2006 issue, Bruce Northam introduces the bushmen of Botswana, Rolf Potts takes a crash course in tantric sex in India, Peter Moore seeks his primitive self on a small Indonesian island, Harold Stephens revisits China's Admiral Zheng He, and Jen Leo ventures inside the casinos of Las Vegas. In addition, there are reviews of travel books and world music recordings. The next issue will be available in March.

Some of the people you meet on Perceptive Travel have travel websites of their own. For example, Rolf Potts' Vagabonding is a pleasing melange of articles, interviews, images, and general travel news. Rolf also pops up on, probably the best independent travel site on the internet today. World Hum's Weblog is always worth a read. The same crowd hangs out at BootsnAll, which has some active travel message boards.
