Stories from the Road

December | The homestretch

15–well, 15 1/2–days. Two weeks and one day, until I get to pack up my clothes and trinkets from Wyoming, catch a ride to the tiny little airport on the edge of town, pronghorn grazing on the prairie beyond, and take a flight back to Boston, where I’ll walk right through the sleek arrival doors of Logan (which I’m,at this point, intimately familiar with), into our car, and straight home to Bridgewater, where my parents have lived for 17 years. I’m in the  ...

Analogue | Andrew Reynolds

We love Andrew Reynold’s work–he has a knack for making the everyday beautiful. We chatted with him about his work and his process.  What film / cameras do you use? My go to camera lately has been an Olympus Stylus Epic (mju2), and an Olympus OM1. I also use a Nikon FM, and K1000, all with a fixed 50mm lens. For film I usually always use Fujifilm Superia 200 or 400, and sometimes I’ll buy something a bit nicer like Ektar 100 or some older expired film. I almost can’t tell the  ...

City Guide | Seoul, South Korea

  Info Seoul is the capital and largest city of South Korea. It suffered severe damages during World War II and the reconstruction turned it into a very modern and livable city. Wide avenues coexist with hidden alleys, imperial palaces, temples and parks. Seoul is surrounded by mountains and hiking is a popular weekend activity. The subway is extensive and easily navigated as the stops are marked in English. Recommendations There are several imperial palaces in Seoul and even though most of  ...

Stories From the Road is a new series on Atlas Addict. Every month, four of the editors–Shannon, Kate, Devinne, and Alysha–share their thoughts, wishes, and experiences of life both on, and off the road in a personal column. I come from a rather adventurous family. Hiking, biking, kayaking, camping and exploring, chances are that on any given weekend you can find a Zadravec out somewhere in the woods, getting lost and loving it. Some of my earliest memories are of camping trips: L.L. Bean  ...

Mini Guide | North Carolina Beaches

North Carolina’s coastline is often overlooked by those not living in the state, but with 300 miles of barrier island beaches and the nearly year-round Southern heat, NC’s beaches make for a perfect vacation destination no matter the time of year. Highlighted below are five of my personal favourites.   The Outer Banks The Outer Banks, a 100+ mile long series of islands off the coast, has something for every kind of beachgoer. For history buffs, Roanoke Island was the site  ...

Reading List | Parallel Londons

(Almost) every month we bring you travel or culturally themed books that we’ve read and recommended. With Halloween and the generally eerier autumnal vibes, we decided to give you travel themed books this month, but with a twist. Each book is based in London, but a different London than you’re perhaps used to… A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab In Schwab’s fantasy tale, there are four Londons in parallel worlds: Red, White, Grey, and Black, so-named for the  ...
