I looked through the two travel magazines that we were considering. Conde Nast’s Traveler was very glitzy. I didn’t find too much to read. The article on “Foolproof Villa Vacations” was right out of an episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” A villa in Umbria at $16,000 per week was a bit much.
“Travel + Leisure” was the better of the two. I thought there were actual articles to read. I especially liked their feature article called “Deals.” I know there are a lot of advertisements in both magazines, but sometimes the ads featuring destinations can offer some ideals that a traveler might be looking for.
Two other travel magazines we might investigate are “National Geographic’s Traveler” and “Outside.”
