The Travel Issue

Deep summertime presents challenges to dwellers in Central Texas. Relentless sunny, cloudless skies with either too much humidity or too little, depending on the current State of the Drought, can make you feel like a prisoner in your own abode. To help you get through, we now publish our Travel Issue in July for your perusing pleasure.

For those of us who plan an escape during the hottest months, we hope you will enjoy the stories in this issue that offer tips and inspirations for travel far away in cooler (or at least distractingly different) climes. For those content or resigned to stay put, we offer “travel quickies” or places to go and things to do close to home. Either way, all our stories can be enjoyed vicariously, whether aboard an overseas aircraft or relaxing on your back stoop. With a nod to escapist summer reading, we have also included stories on ghost vineyards, a ghost town and an unsolvable mystery involving an ostrich egg.

ABOUT THE COVER: Banh Xeo (Vietnamese Crepe) from Elizabeth Street Café (page 45) by Kate LeSueur.
