When I shared our tentative travel plans for 2013, I said I’d share some of my planning process.
Today I received some fun snail mail: the latest issue of Travel+Leisure and a travel planning package from the State of Texas.
I love travel magazines! Right now I only subscribe to Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel, Travel+Leisure and Kansas! Magazine but I have at one time or another also subscribed to:
- Caribbean Travel & Life
- Condé Nast Traveler
- Florida Travel+Life
- International Living
- National Geographic Traveler
- Probably others but that’s all I can remember for now.
I also love reading the in-flight magazines when I fly. I get ideas on where I want to go from these magazines, but I also enjoy learning about places I might never go. And the photography is a great way to escape for an afternoon or to get ideas for my travel photos.
Most of my travel research is online once I’ve picked a location (I’ll share more about my favorite sites for research in a future post), but I do still like to check out state travel guides of the print variety. Kinda like holding the newspaper in my hands … I just like to be able to sit on the couch (or at the pool during the summer) and flip the pages.
What are your favorite travel magazines?
