Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 476th issue of your foreign travel magazine. 

Each month we mail out a number of free sample copies. If you’re reading ITN for the first time, all you really need to know about this publication is that we cover destinations outside of the US, and, except for the rare Feature by a staffer or Contributing Editor, all of the Feature Articles and letters are written by our subscribers, people who enjoy traveling and want to share their...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 475th issue of your foreign travel magazine, the one written largely by its subscribers, people who travel for fun!

I’m writing mainly on one subject this month, so I’ll get right to it.

 

A minor alteration made recently in one of the US regulations for Americans visiting Cuba has left some travelers with the impression that they are allowed a certain freedom of independent movement while in Cuba. But any US citizen...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 474th issue of your monthly foreign travel magazine, the one that YOU help write.

Just back from a trip outside of the US? If you’re a subscriber, tell us about something that other travelers might want to know regarding a place you visited — how to save a couple bucks or get somewhere more efficiently, perhaps a pretty sight or why a certain time of year is a good time to visit. At what point did you have the thought, “I...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 473rd issue of your monthly foreign travel magazine.

This magazine is supported both by our subscribers, so spreading the word about ITN to travelers you meet will help it grow, and by our advertisers, so taking advantage of their offers — and letting them know where you learned about them — is just as important. 

Every mention helps us continue to bring you travelers’ firsthand reports of their discoveries and...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 471st issue of your monthly foreign travel magazine.

This is a publication that has always depended upon its subscribers for the articles and letters that fill up most of the pages in each issue. It’s a group-participation project, so much so that our readers are comfortable to make suggestions on how to improve it. 

So when subscribers express opinions about what they find rewarding or, sometimes, displeasing, in a...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 470th issue of your monthly foreign travel magazine.

Fred Koehler of Orange, California, wrote, several months back, “The ITN shelf in my bookcase reached maximum capacity recently. Begrudgingly, the oldest year required removal. It seemed unpatriotic to throw the issues in the recycle bin. They sat around for several weeks until an answer came to me as we prepared for a garage sale.

“During the sale, each shopper received...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 469th issue of your monthly foreign travel magazine. With this issue, ITN begins its 40th year of publication!

When the late Armond Noble conceived of and first published this magazine, it was unique in at least two ways: (1) it was largely written by its subscribers, international travelers, and (2) it printed their candid appraisals — both positive and negative comments — of tours, flights, cruises, etc. All other travel...
