We recently released our first print issue and we can’t wait to share it with you. If you wonder why you should get a copy for yourself, we created a digital list of the contents of our LAND issue so you know what you can expect to find within the pages.
The theme of our first issue is LAND as we wanted to explore the connection between people and the land. Over time, this has changed quite a few times and we followed the transformation to its core as we know that a bond between humanity and land has existed since our very beginning. Here are the main topics we featured in the print issue.
No One’s Land
We went back in time to trace how the First Nation worshiped the land and make a parallel with how we perceive it today. Read about the land as a central symbol of the plain Indians’ belief system and what powers it possessed according to the Aboriginal culture.
Read our exclusive interview with the owners of Masseria Moroseta. The elegant guest house located close to Ostuni compliments the area where it was built. The guys used only local materials for the house. The whole place functions with solar panels and locally sourced water to guarantee a sustainable existence and be gentle to the environment. Masseria Moroseta exists in harmony with the olive groves and century-old trees surrounding it and is just a piece of paradise on Earth. A shortened version of our interview for Masseria Moroseta is available online in our 'Influencers' section.
The look of the Earth has changed massively. The continents were formed and with them smaller pieces of land separated to exist on their own. History signifies for places that were ones discovered by explorers but exist no more. From Atlántida to the borders of El Dorado and some Hawaiian Islands come with us on an expedition through the ruins of the lost lands.
The People of the Land
We put together some statistics to show how migration has shaped different nations and the way most of us live together in a world that is in a constant state of change. Read about what migration meant a few decades ago compared to what it means now. We show you that we are not so different from one another in this visual photo guide.
NOMADSofORIGIN Magazine collaborated with talented photographers to create a photo guide of mountains around the world. We wanted to illustrate the different terrain of the land and show you that even the peaks of mountains are a home for some of us. We wrote a feature about the nations who live in the embrace of the mountains. Do you know who they are? Read the article as part of our digital content.

3 Minute Bulgaria
Martin started a multimedia project to showcase the beauty, cultural heritage, people’s traditions and history of his homeland. We interviewed him about what inspired the project, the difficulties he faced and why he felt it was important to create this video guide about Bulgaria. Read our exclusive interview with Martin to learn more about the project.
The Distance Between Us
The recent events surrounding the Mexican American border sparked multiple passionate discussions about what it meant to be a nation trying to define itself. There have been a lot of articles written, journalists who spoke up and politicians who made decisions. We followed the events to show how a man-made border wall can symbolise a political statement and a national segregation.
Rice is a huge part of the culture of the Thadou-Kuki people. Learn what is their legend about how the rice grows and why is plays such a vital role in their culture.
NOMADSofORIGIN Magazine explores how the Inca used to connect to the sky using the ground. We discover how the people of Peru put the land in a central significance to establish their cultural identity.
The Nation of Many
This is the story of the people of Karen. NOMADSofORIGIN Magazine presents to you the largest hill tribe in Thailand. Let us take you on a fascinating journey to discover more about the first settlers in Southeast Asia and the way they make their living fishing like no other nation does – using conical fishing nets, a tradition that has been passed on through generations.
On the back of the largest land animal
We want to encourage our nomads to travel consciously and leave a positive impact on the world when visiting different places. Riding elephants is a common practice in many places, especially in the region of Thailand, Cambodia and Nepal and NOMADSofORIGIN Magazine wants to encourage you to be part of the reason to break this cycle. Animals are social creatures and their healthy existence depends on tourists seeing them as such. Read our statistics about how many alive elephants are left in the wild, why illegal ivory trading needs to stop once and for all and other statistics about the gentle giants.
NOMADSofORIGIN is an independent annual publication with a focus on sustainable travelling and global cultural values. Each issue features interviews, engaging articles and photo guides, which take our nomadic readers through different destinations and introduce them to local people's perspectives.
