A journalist by education, a traveller by passion. To combine both, she gave up work in a Singaporean corporation and exchanged her comfortable life in the Lion City for a shaky home in the campervan, driving to the edges of the world. In her writing, she uses vivid imagery to tell stories of inspiring people, places and events.
Founder of AWsome Media – a video production company – moved from a cosy office in Singapore to a camper’s cab. He seeks unusual stories of human lives around the world. Only a few things on this planet would stop him from getting that perfect shot.
We decided to turn our lives upside down and head out on a journey around the world. From Poland to Alaska, long way round. We will drive through 5 continents, almost 60 countries and over 150,000 km – a four-year expedition. Our vehicle is a campervan – a little house on wheels converted from a thirteen-year-old ambulance.
Our aim is not only to “drive through” the world. It is to experience it and to absorb the reality of each country.
We will thoroughly document the entire journey and present it to our audience in an unforgettable way. We stopped blogging and started writing articles, reportages and shoot documentaries.
We will interact with people and learn their fascinating everyday life. We will work as volunteers where help is needed the most. We will go to numerous countries to break or confirm their stereotypes. We will see landscapes we have never dreamt of and the ones we could only imagine. We will reach the farthest outskirts and remote byways – the peripheries of the world.
Peripheries – the outer limits of an area; outskirts, verges, borderlines.
The online travel magazine “Peripheries” is a platform for articles, reportages and documentary films from the farthest corners of the world. The magazine not only introduces the unusual places to the public but also shows the unusual side of these seemingly well-known. It shows extraordinary people who inspire and surprise; the culture of countries through the prism of their traditions, customs and even cuisine.
“Peripheries” is the eyes and the ears of our audience at the edges of the world.
We explain chilling religious practices where believers pierce their bodies with sharp spikes. We show what motivations drive them and what they achieve in return.
