2.0 out of 5 stars Rich kid travel rag April 3, 2013

Passionate about travel - I find this newer magazine irritating. To me it says more about its target market (affluent) than it does about an enriching cultural expansive window on the experience of travel (international or national). The all too apparent leading edge from tips on high end places to stay, eat, etc. along with ads for those with a big budget, evokes the realm of the privledged traveler, no mater the "featured" destination.
A seasoned traveler, the AFAR subscription was given to me as a gift and I will not bother to renew it. I want to feel enriched after reading about a subject I love, not annoyed.

Sometimes you want to just sit on your couch and feel connected to interesting people who love traveling as much as you do. This is what AFAR magazine gives you! Most travel magazines have disappointed me because they are just a lot of ads and stock photos. But this magazine introduces you to people who travel often and you get a glimpse into their lives and where they've been. For example, the highlights for me in the latest issue: a short essay by an editor about how as a child his family of six kids did summer road trips all around the country and how it was his mom's curiosity that drove the trips despite his dad's reluctance, an article about a yacht racer and how alive he feels when seeing cities at night from the water and a list of his favorite ports, and an article by a cultural educator in Waimea Valley, Oahu explaining how he grew up in Hawaii going to Kamehameha School (elite school for native Hawaiians) and what Hawaii and the North Shore culture mean to him. You feel really inspired to go out and see the world after reading this magazine.

AFAR is a vanity magazine produced by a small group of self-styled "travel hipsters" who write far more to impress one another than to inform a broader readership. "And then I found myself in a hip suburb of Athens, where I found myself hanging out with some totally happening Marxist students and we baked souvlaki together. Ain't I the s***!" That's a (very slight) exaggeration, but it captures the tone. This magazine showed up unannounced in my mailbox one day and has been coming ever since. Now, I spend about three minutes thumbing through it before it gets tossed into the garbage.
This is a magazine for travel-hipster wannabes who live in the provinces, i.e., not New York or L.A., who can put this on their coffee table and say, "Hey look Meadow, I read AFAR. I must be happening!"
Two stars for stellar production values, zero for content.
