The Wilderness Volume tells stories of a cabin builder in the Pacific Northwest, a digital nomad favouring the forest over bricks and mortar, mule packing into the wilderness of Montana, and a printmaker who draws inspiration from her woodland surrounds and her deep connection to nature. It features an essay on the problems and necessities of separating humans from wilderness, an article on authentic ways to reconnect with our innate sensibilities and feel inherently more wild, and a long-read that investigates just how untouched our wild places really are and how palaeoecology holds the key to finding out. Our travel section focusses on the the wilds of Romania and the country’s ancient forests that teem with wildlife and sprawl over the mountainous terrain of the Carpathian Mountains. This incredible wilderness stronghold and its unique dynamic with humans is a rarity for our heavily developed continent, and it is because of this that we wanted to share and celebrate some of the stories of passion, preservation and conservation from this bosky country. To create them, we teamed up with the Association of Ecotourism in Romania (AER), an organisation doing groundbreaking work to bring together the public and the private sector in a partnership for nature conservation and sustainable tourism development in Romania.
Another Escape is a lifestyle journal for those who love the outdoors, telling stories of passionate people inspired by nature. We encourage people to connect with the natural world in meaningful ways so they may become active stewards of our planet.
In 2012, Another Escape founders, Rachel Taylor and Jody Daunton, came together to create a high-quality lifestyle publication that inspires a connection to nature, considered ways of living, environmental stewardship and a sense of fulfilment in our everyday lives. Through our love for storytelling, and working alongside our small team and a talented network of contributors, we have crafted a product for a community of outdoors people who are creative, curious and adventurous. We believe that if we can foster a meaningful relationship with nature then we may be best equipped and most motivated to offer stewardship to our planet, especially now, at a time when it so desperately needs it.
