Traveler's Tales, Adventure, Ideas & Resources, and musings from The Traveler... The adventure awaits...
May 2005 * 05/28/05
Welcome to the May issue of The Traveler!
Welcome to the May issue of The Traveler.
Happy Memorial Day! The Traveler is proud to present two special website feature articles in honor of the 60th anniversary of the end World War II in Europe.
Of course, we have our regular monthly feature articles from our network of top-notch travel writers. From exploring the enchanting wonders of Santa Fe to visiting a training camp for elephants in Thailand, exploring mysterious crop circles in eastern Europe, or enjoying a special place in Provence, we've got you covered this month.
The Traveler takes a slightly different tack for our Travel Writing Pick-of-the-Month. Instead of looking at great travel writing, we'll look at great travel writers in Michael Shapiro's A Sense of Place.
Last but not least is our usual lineup of Travel Ideas, Resources, and Bargains so you can get out there and see the world!
Santa Fe--the City Different

Travel Writing Pick-Of-The-Month
This month we take a look not at travel writing per se, but at travel writers. In Michael Shapiro's A Sense of Place we'll talk with such names as Bill Bryson, Pico Iyer, Tim Cahill, Isabel Allende, Paul Theroux and many others. Names that have highlighted past installments of the Travel Writing Pick-of-the-Month and others that will surely be featured in future issues. Get inside the heads of these great travel writers with A Sense of Place : Great Travel Writers Talk About Their Craft, Lives, and Inspiration (Travelers' Tales)
