Love it


I have been a follower of this magazine since the earliest days and still love their articles. It's so up to date and interesting and takes me to places I haven't been. Keep up the great work

Great New Look


I’ve liked the content of this magazine for a while but the new look is great, navigation is a little difficult to get the hang of but the content and images makes up for that. I love the interactive maps and full screen photos.

Very Informative & Extremely Interesting
