The TRAILBLAZERS Issue is dedicated to living in the moment and taking the slow approach to travelling. Connecting to new cultures and destinations can feel overwhelming so it is important to take time to appreciate the little things so we can truly open ourselves to the beauty that the world has to offer. We embarked on journeys across the globe from the sun-kissed African savannahs to the picturesque hidden aquamarine beaches in Croatia and the romantic riverside bridges in Paris. We spoke to some incredible creatives whose passion to draw inspiration from the places and cultures that shaped them into the artists they are changes the barriers of what it means to be a trailblazer.
Our sixth print issue goes out to all good trouble makers, adventure seekers and trailblazers - your restless adventurous spirits is what keeps this magazine going. Here is a break-down of what you can expect to find in the sixth issue of the publication.
The Red Sea Fishing Gateway
Dusty landscapes, cinematic cities and timeless temple sites - Egypt is a land of so much mystery and magic. Millennia-old monuments, tales of powerful pharaohs and a vision of the Nile River come to mind as soon as Egypt is mentioned, but the essence of the country goes deeper than what travellers are often exposed to. Explore an alternative side of Egypt which pays a tribute to the country's ancestors' past by putting fishing practices at the heart of how the locals connect with nature and honour its gifts.
Living on Island Time
Explore the island of Croatia, soak up the sunshine by the bays that guard the hidden beaches in Dubrovnik and fall in love with the slow rhythm of the nightlife in palm tree covered Hvar. Follow us as we navigate a five day stay in this beautiful getaway dream destination.
Global travelling is a growing aspect of tourism and with more access to remote destinations, as well as tourist hotspots, it becomes our responsibility to take care in travelling ethically and remaining mindful when shopping for souvenirs to bring home from our holidays. From animal skins to hummingbird charms, read how you can avoid wildlife trade and help endangered animal species.

Natalie's photography has a postcard-worthy feel of endless summer vacations. To see the world through her camera lens is to dip in the warm waters of European beaches, to spend the day relaxing by the rainbow sun umbrellas that cool down Capri's coastline and to allow yourself to enjoy the moment for all its freeing, glamorous joy that only summer can bring. Read our exclusive interview with the photographer.
