Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 540th issue of your monthly worldwide travel magazine — our 45th anniversary issue!

The May 2020 and January 2021 issues had to be published online only (no mailed copies) due to the drop in supportive tour company advertising resulting from the COVID-caused shutdown in travel worldwide, but travelers are looking forward to the day when they can get back on the road and in the air.

I want to once again thank the many people who...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 539th issue of your monthly worldwide travel magazine.

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 538th issue of your monthly worldwide travel magazine.

Normally, it is in our January issue that I ask ITN subscribers to each send us a list of the countries they visited in the previous year, but, for obvious reasons, I will not be asking “Where Were You in 2020?”

Since COVID-19 has squelched the travel plans of virtually everyone for the last nine months, there’s no point in trying to gather data about where...

Though featuring fewer pages than in previous years, and despite all that’s happened since the coronavirus showed up, ITN is still in production.

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 536th issue of your monthly foreign-travel magazine.

With a pandemic having halted most international travel, and with Americans banned from visiting many countries, three months ago I shared with you a subscriber’s reasoning that ITN, for the first time since its inception in 1976, might consider covering domestic travel along with foreign. So, addressing each subscriber to this magazine, I put the question to you: “Should ITN...

A flamboyance of Chilean flamingos has inhabited the Caribbean island of Aruba for nearly 15 years and can be seen on either Flamingo Beach or De Palm Island.

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 535th issue of your monthly foreign-travel magazine.

The outpouring of support for ITN in response to Evenyl Roemmich’s “Travel Resource Challenge” (July ’20, pg. 26) continues to move and stir us. Thank you.

A couple of subscribers have commented on the low number of pages in recent issues of ITN, offering suggestions for collecting more articles and letters to print. The dearth of pages is not due to a lack of...
