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...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 468th issue of your monthly foreign travel magazine. That’s one issue per month for 39 years! We must be doing something right.

Ken Wadland of Albion, Rhode Island, thinks so. That’s him in the above photo proudly holding a copy of our November issue… in Croatia.

Judy Serie Nagy of San Francisco, California, is another fan of ITN. She wrote, “I do believe that ‘Adapting to a Change in Plans to Explore the...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 467th issue of your monthly foreign travel magazine. Whew! I’ve worked on 463 of them… and still love doing it. Every month brings interesting mail, and it helps to have good-spirited, dedicated coworkers. 

Your letters of encouragement are inspiring too. With ITN largely reader written, this is a group project. And let’s not forget the advertisers who help support the magazine; if you notice something interesting in one of their ads, give ’em...

Dear Globetrotter:

Welcome to the 466th issue of your monthly foreign-travel magazine. Within the last month, I’ve heard several subscribers describe this magazine as “real,” by which, they explain, they mean it’s full of candid accounts from travelers who write for the benefit of other international travelers.

You’ll see that as you flip through the pages. For now, I have the following to report.
