From the Publisher
Transitions Abroad is the only magazine that starts with the premise that the most enlightening--and thus the most rewarding--travel is full-immersion travel. In choosing what goes into each issue the editors ask: “How can the unforgettable experience of actually living in another country be duplicated--even on short visits?”
One of the best ways to get to know another place is to settle in and work a while. So in every issue we cover the range of opportunities for employment abroad. This time we concentrate on short-term paid jobs: Susan Griffith (“The Key Employers,” page 41) offers her annual country-by-country list of contacts for short-term jobs. Keep in mind that most “casual” work tends to pay just enough to cover room and board. But if it’s the experience you’re after, there are plenty of worthwhile jobs to be found. Students and recent graduates see “Work Abroad Exchanges” (page 88).
For the rest of us, there’s a lot more in this special issue--travel bargains are everywhere. Get a sense of what’s out there from Rick Steves’ recommendations in “The Backdoor Internet” (page 33). But if you want to go low-tech, try a horse-drawn caravan vacation in Ireland (page 39) or take the back road to Cuba (page 23) or visit an island idyll in the Philippines (page 26). And if you really want to get away from it all (like to Mars maybe), check out Kathy Widing’s “Happy New Century” (page 31).
Next issue is our big catalog of special interest travel and study around the world--everything from historical tours of Greece to Russia on your own. See you then! -
