Today I’m back at work. Thank God, I am having quite an easy Saturday. As I felt I was getting a little bit bored and was just wasting time, I started thinking what search I should run with Google. And as I thought one never knew where life would take one and thus I might end up actually mixing Journalism and Tourism, I thought I should take a look at some travel and tourism magazines, for starters.
I quickly got to a site having quite a list of travel magazines and started to check them out. After giving up on all the sites whose graphics I disliked, those too complicated to actually find the needed links and also those that only referred to area/country-based guides, I got to this interesting list:
Destination Elsewhere – the online travel & culture magazine
Go Nomad – The Alternative Way to Travel
National Geographic Traveler
Road Junky – For the Traveler Who Knows Where it’s at
Travel and Leisure
Travelmag – The Independent Spririt
What I found and did not quite like was a magazine called JourneyWoman – The Premier Travel Resource for Women. Well, the red they’ve used is quite ugly to me, I am very hard to please with red shade choices, it’s hard to access the different pages as the display is totally messed up and finally, what made me question this site, what do harts have to do with women traveling? It is mostly about travel, not romance, although it has a Love is in the Air section The idea of a dedicated magazine for women is quite good, but from that to calling your search engine “Her” is a long way to go, not in the right way, might I add…
What I did enjoy about the site was the Culturally Correct Clothing Advice. Well, yes, this mostly applies to women, men can wear pretty much whatever they want and no one would say much. But for women, this might turn into a serious issue.
