Welcome to the May issue of The Traveler.
Let's get right to it!
We've got three fresh feature articles for you this issue, from the offbeat in London, the "end of the line" on the American east coast, to a modern day gold rush perfect for the kids on the west coast.
In the true spirit of adventure, for our travel writing pick-of-the-month we give you one woman, an eccentric motorcycle prone to breakdowns, and a mission to explore the country around its borders with Canada and Mexico.
The travel and vacation season is upon us, and we've got our latest travel ideas, bargains, and resources to help you sort out all your possibilities.

Right now, you could be enjoying a week at a tiny hotel on a small Caribbean island, relaxing on a fine stretch of white sand, listening to the palms rustle overhead... for F-R-E-E. In fact, you could be getting paid to do it.
If you've always dreamed of far-flung travels... on someone else's dime... then this is your opportunity to make it happen.
On June 12, 2007, I'll show you how you can get started -- and reveal to you real-world strategies to access this lifestyle -- for less than $20.

Travel Writing Pick-Of-The-Month
I first met Carla at a travel writing conference sponsored and ran by her cohorts, who call themselves the Wild Writing Women. We also spent some time chatting at a local meeting of the Bay Area Travel Writers Association.
Carla's a funny, intelligent, and well-traveled woman and writer. She also knows her way around a motorcycle. I guess you pretty much have to when you take it upon yourself to ride one through China, or all across Europe, or around the edges of our American Borders.
This is enlightening and entertaining travel tale of Carla's solo experience circumnavigating America along the borders with Canada and Mexico in a Russian-built Ural sidecar motorcycle - that didn't always work.

We're busy considering some changes on how we publish The Traveler. One option that we're seriously considering is moving our publishing format to a blog. 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-breeaking 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.
