Welcome to the June issue of The Traveler.
You'll forgive us getting the June issue out on the 2nd of July. An undertaking such as The Traveler is, of course, dependent on computers, servers, web hosts, and the like. When any one of them (how about all three?) start acting up, well, it slows us down and turns our hair gray. But neither crashed computer, slow server, or downed web host well keep The Traveler from its appointed rounds.
So let's get going!
Our feature articles this month take us from the tops of moving busses in India (as in bus surfing), to a bucking horse in Wyoming, and finally to a most unusual chapel along a twisting, turning road along California's beautiful northern coast. That's a lot of moving around, so if you're prone to motion sickness you might want to go slow!
Our travel writing pick-of-the-month is a little different than our normal fair, but if you've always wanted to learn Spanish but just haven't gotten around to it, we've got the perfect book for you. You'll be making your way through Madrid and talking up a Spanish storm in no time.
As always, we cap this issue with the latest travel ideas, bargains, and resources for your summer (or winter) travel and adventure.
Many readers will be enjoying the Fourth of July Independence Day celebration this coming Wednesday. In honor of the celebration, The Traveler offers our readers an essay called Thomas Paine: the First American Blogger, written for our ThomasPaineBlog.org.
Six Years of The Traveler!
None of this would be possible without our loyal readers. So here's a great big thank you from The Traveler!

Travel Writing Pick-Of-The-Month
Our travel writing pick is a little bit different this month. Instead of tales of exotic adventures, we have a book that will help you on your own adventure.
Knowing a foreign language, at least enough to function without causing any problems or embarrassing situations for yourself, is one important aspect for the intrepid world traveler.
Spanish teacher and author Meg Graham combines phonetic learning and important cultural clues and tips to help readers learn to communicate gracefully and efficiently in everyday situations.
If you've tried learning Spanish before and found it difficult or the learning process daunting, this book is for you! Ahora Hablo Travel Edition "Seven Simple Steps To Authentic Spanish (Ahora Hablo)

As we mentioned last month, we're seriously considering moving The Traveler to a blog publishing format. This would help us keep our costs down and simplify our publishing process. It should also help us keep in touch with our readers more efficiently with fast-breaking travel news and opportunities. If you have any thoughts or comments, please let us know!
New stories are posted on our website, make sure to check them out! Look at past web features (not shown here in The Traveler) on our monthly feature article index page.
