The new issue of Perceptive Travel features stories ranging from pole to pole, with some fine Scotch in between. As a new dad, I’m looking forward to reading Fawzia Rasheed de Francisco’s piece about traveling with children: “Is traveling with kids something to fear, fret over, and throw your old independent spirit out the window for, or does it just require a little tweaking?” (I’m hoping for the latter). Francisco is author of The Rough Guide to Travel with Babies and Young Children. Perceptive Travel is a “rag-tag” bimonthly effort to pull together a great collection of writing. I don’t read it as much as I should.
