I subscribed to National Geographic Traveler in the hopes it has changed from being a collection of disparate tidbits of travel info aimed at the lowest-common denominator. It hasn't. There are only one or two short travelogues with generally poor photography and mediocre-to-excellent writing. Rest is along the lines "ten hotels you can't afford in Phoenix, AZ," "walking tour in Beijing," or "how to hug trees and not leave a trace while traveling." While I'm sure the articles are of interest to many, I couldn't care less, as I can get that information elsewhere if I cared. And enough with the carbon credits, but that's another (long long) rant.
Are there any dead-tree publications which offer travel photography along with good writing? Not about places to visit, but about traveling, the experience, and the peripheral thoughts and ideas.
Or do I have to get the fix from separate sources, ie. photographic fix from Lenswork, and writing from Playboy (I heard it also has pictures)?
