I subscribe to CN, T&L, NGT, Sunset, AAA, Alaska and New York.

I am stopping Alaska...sniff, that was so 2003 for me and while I love reading it I have recently developed severe Alaska Magazine ADD.

CN and T&L are on my stop list too...My club has them and these arrive there before they get to my home.

NGT, NY, Sunset and AAA are the last mags standing.

That Frommers Budget Travel leaves me in tears...canceled this the 3rd month it was published...I just am not that desperate to travel...I'll stay home first.

Gourmet and Bon Appetite are ones I'll buy if they have written about a place I like or plan to visit.

Now, get a load of this: In Style, the fashion magazine, has fabulous travel style and destination suggestions...

FODORS is mentioned in the MAY 2004 edition in the same sentence with Brad Pitt!
Spotted that today! Nearly tore the page out out the magazine...but, my manicurist stopped me!

I too am an avid supporter of ITN. It's surprising how few people subscribe to it. Nothing glossy but full of useful information.

I also suscribe to International Travel News and think it is a great magazine. I'm not sure that many people have heard of it though. Is it on news stands at all? I can't remember where I even heard of it, and then I was fortunate that my library had a subscription so I could check it out. I've been subscribing to it for years now and recommend it highly.

I thought I was the only one who saved my European Travel and Life issues. I totally agree that it would be great if this magazine could be revived. Somehow, Town & Country magazine sometimes features different European cities (Lyon, for example, just recently) and the articles and pictures are reminiscent of Travel and Leisure in my opinion but not the same of course.

Another Nat'l Geo Traveler reader. I'll infrequently pick up a T+L, but don't subscribe.

Also, although it's not a travel magazine, I have gotten more notions about places I'd like to see from the regular ole Nat'l Geographic than from anywhere else. I tend to become fascinated with a place and read a lot, long before I think about things like hotels.

I alternate between a couple subscriptions each year: Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel, Conde Naste Traveler, Travel & Leisure, National Geographic Traveler, Islands. Because I use them as "arm-chair" reading entertainment, I don't really care when hotels listed always cost $500+/night (not my price category). I've yet to use magazine information for actually planning a trip! Just mind candy.

Another old European Travel & Life fan. I have every issue (but they're boxed up in storage at the moment).

I never heard of "European Travel and Life" - - it seems to be just what was being called for on

So, when is the "movement" to start our own ("e-"?) publishing effort going to gather significant momentum to actually go anywhere?

Yet another fan of European Travel and Life; I, too, have old issues which I treasure.

I have same complaints about Conde Nast, although, as said by others, Wendy Perrin's consumer pieces are usually good, and reading Ombudsman has taught me to try to cover my bases when I travel and what process to follow if there would be a giant problem.

Sounds as though there is no "perfect" travel magazine.

I still have about 30 copies of ET&L in my files for reference.I think they got bought by Conde Nast--what a shame.

I also have about 50 copies of vintage Playboys from late 60s and early 70s--do I hear an offer?

ITN is my absolute favorite. Someone had a sample sent to me a few years ago and I have subscribed since.
Also subscribe to Nat. Geo.Traveler and Conde Nast. Don't really like CN but It is cheap and sometimes has a good article.

Here's another vote for International Travel News. If you go their web site, they will send you a free copy and you can try it for yourself. It has more information for my style of travel than any of the others, although I do enjoy National Geographic Traveler.
