My first issue as editor of TravelWorld International is now live!
The magazine is published by the North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA) and written by its members, but the content is geared toward the general traveling public.
I much prefer the flash version, which is laid out in a traditional print-magazine format. This is the place to go for all the great photography that accompanies each piece.
The main website, unfortunately, is still an HTML site, so it’s lacking in visual appeal, but an upgrade has been in the works for a while now, and I’m hopeful that the new site will be available soon.
In one of my first personal travel pieces in a long time, I write about my adventures trekking Tiger Leaping Gorge in China (page 20 in the flash version).
My former TravelMuse cohort Jill Robinson wrote about her second home, the Honduran island of Guanaja.
There also are great articles on taking an African safari, rafting in West Virginia, and slow hiking across Europe’s Via Alpina, among others. In addition, the magazine features regular columns on a variety of topics.
So check it out and tell me what you think!
