In this Issue
This is the first issue of 2013 and it’s already one of our best issues to date. We’ve packed in compelling stories from some of the most interesting corners of the world including a cover feature on Burma, a photo essay of Sierra Leone, and a 10-page comprehensive guide of the Holy Land, Israel.
In our Under the Radar section, we see past the headlines and venture into the forbidden territory of Afghanistan with contributor Stephen Lioy. For a meal that not only satisfies our appetite for our thirst for adventure, writer Noah Lederman navigates the dim sum jungle of Hong Kong and brings us on a thrilling ride. Talented wildlife photographer and writer Dale Morris opens our eyes to an unknown safari destination in Zambia.
On an epic biking journey around the world, doctor and writer Stephen Fabes cycled across the biggest salt lake in the world, Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, and shares his story with us. In our Stay section, we fulfill our childhood dreams of sleeping in a UFO that’s also a treehouse in Sweden’s Treehotel.
Also in this issue: Our Travel Rant columnist Mike Sowden discusses the importance of mealtimes when traveling and how dining with locals might just be the key to unraveling local culture mysteries.
Over at our Travel Thoughts section, regular contributor Candace Rose Rardon discusses the difference between a backpacker and a guidebook-toting bookworm. She also shares with us a beautiful sketch of the Tha Kah Floating Market, a not-so-secret but beautiful corner of Thailand.

We’ve been working on the new site for several months now. Our goal is to have a singular platform dedicated to WildJunket Magazine where we can share stories on a different level. The new site will be an online version of our magazine, with all our magazine articles republished there as well as a flurry of articles, photos, travel lists and news published daily. We are constantly on the look out for new contributors – so if you’re keen on guest blogging, email us!
With the new magazine site, we’re also aiming to make this blog a lot more personal – the way we’d originally intended it to be. WildJunket started out as a way for us to share stories and photos with friends and families, but we’ve grown immensely since then and somehow veered off course. Now we’d really like to go back to basics and blog like we used to.
