I subscribe to many different travel magazines, but my absolute favorite is National Geographic Traveler. The articles are informative and are targeted for all types of travelers, not just the ones with mounds of money or just the budget traveler. The pages also have a pleasant, easy-to-follow layout.
Every year around this time, magazines offer free gift subscriptions with the renewal for your own subscription. I thought I'd offer up my free gift subscription to National Geographic Traveler here on my blog.

One of my favorite travel memories is of walking along the East Side Gallery in Berlin, Germany. It's the longest stretch of the Berlin Wall that's still standing and is the longest outdoor art gallery. Along this stretch of wall was a little souvenir stand where you could pay a euro to get your passport stamped with a former East German checkpoint stamp. Every time I open my passport and see that stamp, all of the wonderful memories of my time in Berlin come flooding back to me. It is, to this day, my favorite city on earth. It has the most exciting energy of any city I've never visited (that includes New York) and yet, even with all that youthful vibrancy, it still firmly holds hands with the past.
