The intent of Soul of Travel Magazine is to provide a platform for travel writers and photographers, and to provide quality in-depth content for the viewer and traveler.

In the first issues of The Soul of Travel Magazine we published, among others, the work of the participants of the Soul of Travel Writing workshops held in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

These workshop were an incredible success. The participants ranged from beginners to seasoned travel journalists and from 15 to 73 years old.

The workshops took place at Rancho Encantado, an eco-resort on the shore of Laguna Bacalar (the Lake of Seven Colors) in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico near the Belize border.

The magazine is now open to manuscript and photograph submissions (no queries, please). Please email us for guidelines. The first issue in digital, flip-page format is due out after the pandemic is over (In the meantime please stay safe and well)..

Please send us your suggestions and thoughts about the magazine and your photos and articles for the next issue.

Currently I’ve inished working on FWT Magazine: food  wine  travel – it was taking up much of my time. I hope to get back to Soul of Travel Magazine soon after the end of the pandemic. The plan is to make it a flip-page digital publication as is FWT Magazine.
See below.

Please keep checking back for more notices.
