We are proud to have launched five print issues and are eternally grateful for the opportunity to share our travel experiences with you. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us on this journey as we put together stories, travel essays and photo guides meant to help you get to know the lesser-travelled paths of the world a bit better.

Ever since we launched NOMADSofORIGIN Magazine, we have worked to establish the print as a physical form of armchair travel, a glimpse into the kaleidoscopic world of wanderlust and an atlas to the cultural mosaic that different destination have to offer. From grabbing a bite from world-renowned street vendors in Bangkok to booking a safari trip in the Kenyan wilderness and diving underwater with the 'sea nomads', here are our team's top pick of articles from the print archives.

Bangkok: city of contrasts

(from #04 The ESCAPISM Issue)

World-renowned as the best place on the planet to taste Thai food, Bangkok's streets hold incomparable authenticity. To eat like a local in Thailand's capital often means to taste $2 Michelin star dishes off street stalls. We take you on a journey across the city to explore the Asian culture in the best way possible - through the delicious food.

‘‘Late 14th century travellers from the Middle East and India settled down in Thailand and brought along recipes of meat dishes with rich dried spices flavours. For an authentic dish that has barely changed over time, try the Islamic-world-influenced fried bread, known as roh-dee.’’
