Traveler's Tales, Adventure, Ideas & Resources, and musings from The Traveler... The adventure awaits...
January 2006 * 01/27/06
A new year begins at The Traveler!
Whoa! 2006? The first decade of a new millennium and new century already half over? At the risk of starting the new year with a cliche - time flies.
We're excited to start a new year, and in celebrating of new starts, we're instituting a slightly more organized look for our travel resources, bargains and deals section. Let us know what you think!
We've got a bit of a theme going for our feature articles this month. Can you guess what it is? But theme or no, you'll enjoy a walk through the charming village of Bratislava, a cruise along the Elbe in an historic steamer, and a look at human resilience in the long aftermath of war. All testaments, perhaps, to the human spirit. And all from our most treasured resource here at The Traveler: Our crack team of writers!
Our Travel Writing Pick-of-the-Month we offer our traditional New Year offering with the Best of American Travel Writing for 2005.
Last but not least, we've got the latest in travel resources, ideas, and bargains (with our spiffy new organization) to start a new year of travel and adventure off right.

Travel Writing Pick-Of-The-Month
We love to start every new year by featuring some of the best American travel writing for the previous year. 2006 is no different; with the 2005 edition we have essays from Tom Bissell, John McPhee, Pam Houston, Ian Frazier, William Least Heat-Moon, and more.
Through the eyes of this expert observers and story-tellers, we see a clear picture of the world we inhabit. The Best American Travel Writing 2005 (The Best American Series (TM))
