Happy New Year from The Traveler!

We at The Traveler had a very rewarding and happy holiday season, if not a bit tiring, and hope all our readers had a joyous season with family and friends!

As always, a big thank you and welcome to all our new subscribers, as well as all those that remain loyal readers. We look forward to a brand new year full of adventure with exotic, new places to explore!

For our feature articles this month, we'd first like to introduce a new contributor to The Traveler. Kitty Werner takes us on an adventure on the Grand Caymen Island, swimming among sting rays in their natural habitat...

We'll then pick up with part 3 of our Molokai series, "Hawaii for Hawaiians".

And for a little taste of Greece, we'll have a first in a series of short "Dispatches from Greece", by one of The Travelers intrepid network of savvy travelers, scouring the globe for new adventures to pass on to our readers.

We hope you enjoy!
