WildJunket Magazine August/September 2012

Posted December 7, 2012 by Alberto Molero in

In this issue, we have gathered a very diverse mix of stories from various corners of the world: with a cover feature on tracking grizzly bears in central Alaska, a stunning photo essay on the island nation of Vanuatu, and a comprehensive travel guide on the Inca kingdom, Peru.

We also have a feature on WWOOFing in the French Polynesia by Contributing Editor Candace Rose Rardon, who had volunteered  on a black pearl farm a few years back, and has also written a travel memoir based on the experience. To coincide with the one-year anniversary of Sudan’s division into two separate countries, our contributor, Melissa Shales, visits the little-known central Sudan and finds a world of surprises, in our Under the Radar section. Travel guide writer Sasha Heseltine brings us into Europe’s last patch of wilderness in Poland, tracking bisons and moose along the way. In our Stay section, Mariellen Ward finds Shangri-la in the luxury boutique hotel of Uma Paro in Bhutan.

Also in this issue: Our Feast section takes us into the private restaurants, or paladares, that’s taking Cuba by storm. Our Travel Rant columnist Mike Sowden muses about how getting lost is the best way to explore.  Over at ourTravel Thoughts section, Candace ponders over the definition of “home”. Plus 10 culinary trips, a calendar of festivals in August/September and photo contributions from readers!
