Five print issues, countless travels and endless wanderlust stories - our independent publication has grown so much since we launched back in 2019. We have had the opportunity to explore countries from all corners of the world, take you on adventures to all continents and capture the essence of local culture whether we have ended up off-the-beaten path in the villages of Africa or walked down the pristine white sand beaches of some of the most picturesque bays of Asia.

The photographers we have collaborated with along the way, the trailblazers we have interviewed and the creatives behind the lens of the camera have documented nomadic travelling from an entirely authentic perspective. Follow us to the jungles of Kenya and the forests of Madagascar to the deserts of Jordan and the mountain peaks of Switzerland. Here is a quick run-through of our team's top pick of favourite photography from the print archives.

Uncover the Island Kingdom of diversity

Get lost in the abundance of cultural mosaic as we explore the melting pot of traditions and spiritual believes rooted in the island of Indonesia to carve the place as home to a nation that finds unity in diversity. From an ode to appreciate the beauty of the island country to a deep dive into Indonesia's plastic epidemic, we explore what is the ultimate footprint that the tourism industry contributes.

‘‘The daily life in Bali is a spectacle of colours, dazzled by the practice of Hinduism where women make a procession through the streets, carrying cakes, fruits and colourful flowers on their heads as an offering and travellers are welcomed to a land of immence diversity.’’

An Open Letter... to the Community

(from #04 The ESCAPISM Issue)

Trying to adapt to the new normality of living life from home inspired us to reach out to the loyal community of NOMADSofORIGIN's escapists who remain eager to chase adventures once it becomes safe to travel again. As we acknowledge the privilege and opportunities available to escapists, we accent the importance of supporting one another in times of need and building a better, more eco-conscious future for the next generation of travellers.

From a Generation to a Generation
