Lodestars Anthology is a magazine-meets-journal for curious travellers who long to see, chat about and experience this big old world of ours.
It is a magazine about place, travel and exploration, one that you’d ideally like to keep on your coffee table – or filled with scribblings and safely stored in your suitcase. It is independently published, distributed internationally and dedicated to exploring the globe one country per issue.
Full of photographs, illustrations, creative writing, city guides and personal musings, it is designed to fuel your love of adventure, life and all the people, destinations and ideas this world has to offer. Printed on high quality paper and perfect-bound the focus is as much on design as it is on content and wanderlust.
Issue 11 Portugal
Awash with castles and cork, sunshine and salt, Portugal is a wonder, a grande dame and muse, a place to seek solace and beauty. Here, there are island oases, pilgrimage trails, artisans and waves - azulejos and pastéis de nata - and one should feast on all that they can; climb mountains, sip Port, meander through markets, swim, savour and walk into wilderness.
Layered in history, there is a sublime sense of melancholy - an awareness of the things that have passed, matched by awe of all that remains. Warmth, colour, tradition and light. In Portugal you have time, space and reason to feel.
