Themes of outdoor culture, sustainability and responsible practice runs deep throughout the volume and that is precisely what makes this magazine different and special. Beginning with navigation lessons which albeit appear less relevant in our times, make for an interesting read. The first section of the volume, ‘Finding Your Way’ also shares experiences of people who have successfully bartered their city lives for something more fulfilling, such as a homestead life, a life of exploration and adventure.
The second section of volume 8 is dedicated to the cluster of islands somewhere between Iceland and Norway and the life on this self- governing archipelago (part of the Kingdom of Denmark) – Faroe Islands. Accompanied with beautiful photography, the section makes a compelling case why this cluster of islands must be your next holiday destination.
Diving, canoeing and wild swimming – the last section of the volume dives deep into the water and reflects on the need for its preservation.
Another Escape delivers on its promise of not just introducing readers to passionate people and their adventures and but also sharing intriguing ideas that urge you to keep exploring.
