Here is the last issue of the Hiking on the Moon magazine, made by Quechua, dedicated to “Mythical Journeys”.
Since the dawn of time, mankind has taken to the road, embarking upon extraordinary journeys. For some, it’s a quest for food to ensure the survival of their family, particularly through trade; for others, it’s about looking for unknown lands to explore.
We recommend that you get out there too and explore some of these tracks, trails and other legendary routes, steeped in history. A road trip adventure means freedom; it’s an opportunity for reflection, fascinating encounters and rediscovering life’s simple pleasures, which although basic are nonetheless very powerful.
From Chile’s Carretera Austral, to the GR20 that snakes across the Corsican mountains, to New Zealand’s Great Walks, the Trans-Siberian railway and the sacred trail of Mount Rinjani in Indonesia, our selection of legendary journeys will charm the backpacker in you. For those put off by the idea of such a nomadic existence, we try to convince you otherwise, drawing on the testimonies of backpackers from all walks of life to challenge your preconceived ideas about travel. Finally, when it comes to new features, this edition has not been overlooked: the section “Profile” is devoted to men and women with a genuine passion whose aspirations really motivate and energize us.
So come on, get going!
