Top 10 places to travel in August

You’ve got to love a travel expert whose motto is “Saving the world from mediocre trips.” Longtime travel journalist and Conde Nast Traveler columnist Wendy Perrin writes her own blog these days, offering up travel planning tips, insider guides, travel experts and — our fave — a monthly “where to go” list that includes eclectic, memorable choices. August, for example, may be hurricane season, but it’s also whale shark season off the coast of Mexico.

Here are just a few of her choices for August. Find the rest, plus photos, planning tips and other resources, at www.wendyperrin.com. (Psst, bookmark that page so you’ll be ready for her September list, which should post in mid-August.)
