Firstly, I have to say "Thank you" to the writers, editors and publishers of this magazine, for writing a magazine that (a) I really enjoyed reading (b) taught me things I didn't know (how to do a wheelie for starters...) and (c) treated me like a capable intelligent female who likes to DO things, rather than just buy things.
Now, let me just say that I can be as girlie as the next woman. But when I read a magazine, I want something more than ads and articles telling me how I'd feel better about myself if I was thinner, taller, had botox, got a new therapist, tried the latest designer clothing etc etc. This magazine was incredible. I got to read about Stand Up Paddling (never knew it existed but it sounds fun), hiking in South America (watch out for Rattlers) and what make-up I should consider buying if I like being in the great outdoors. Not a hint of "the best diet you'll ever try" or similar stuff that occupies the majority of women's magazines these days.
I will note two things I would change. (1) I wouldn't mind some political commentary (I know, I know, it's not that type of magazine, but I can dream can't I? Besides, anyone who likes fresh air, clean water or will tell you that all those things are policitical, but I digress) (2) When I read this on my Kindle, a lot of the photos didn't align with the blurb written about them, so it was telling me about a rucksack but the image which showed up was of a pair of shoes. Then three sections later, I got to the shoes blurb. It's a minor fault and maybe it doesn't happen on an iPad, but on the regular Kindle it was a bit disappointing.
Still, it's a minor flaw to pay for such a super magazine. Keep up the good work ladies! I'm really looking forward to the next edition.
