Sidetracked #11


A revista Sidetracked recupera o sentimento de aventura e exploração, abordando a viagem através de narrativas completas e visualmente apelativas. As palavras e imagens que preenchem as páginas desta publicação mostram-nos como a aventura é um conjunto de trocas e interações baseadas na curiosidade reciproca entre viajantes e locais, entre o Homem e a natureza.

"Sidetracked has always been rooted in inspirational journeys. We were born from the passion of wanting to tell the stories of those who put themselves out there, setting aside fear and doubt in order to experience the breathtaking, the awe-inspiring and the magical."


We descend Suriname’s jungle rivers via piragua,

ski receding glaciers in Uganda,

and surf the remote waters of British Columbia’s outer coast


After 4,000km leading three wild horses along the spine of Eastern Australia, after the worst tropical cyclone and flash flooding in 40 years, it was a single, bloodthirsty mosquito that brought down Alienor le Gouvello. But even Ross River Fever was not enough to stop her. Erik Boomer and two other National Geographic Adventurers of the Year ski with kites and tow whitewater kayaks over 1,000km of the Greenland ice sheet to reach the most northern river ever paddled.”

“Whether it’s the purity found in freezing the ephemeral relationship between water and light, which Ray Collins seeks each time he jumps in, celebrating the sun rising over the sea; or an arduous and dangerous journey of scientific discovery within the unstable abyss of an active volcano, like the one Aldo Kane takes us on, adventure is rarely easy. The balance between life and death is fragile. How we react is the measure of us. If in that adversity we discover how far we are willing to go, our senses are heightened too. We are closer to the world around us than ever before. In that struggle with demons we see clearly.
