JRNY Travel Magazine – Issue One

The JRNY begins

This is a magazine for those who love a sense of adventure – more “exploring” rather than “resorts”. There will be a range of different travel experiences from a variety of destinations. Articles will be in the form of written features, round-ups and photo essays. 

From unforgettable road trips to unique festivals around the world, from hiking in the wilderness to wildlife, these are travel experiences and adventures for you to enjoy, brought to life told by award-winning writers and photographers.

Beautifully designed and printed

Great work deserves a great canvas. This is why we will be printing this magazine on high-quality paper with a 350 gsm cover. Along with the modern, clean and elegant design, this A4 magazine/book will be in more of a coffee-book style rather than a newsstand magazine.

Amazing stories, great storytellers

There has arguably never been a more important time for travel writers and photographers to tell their stories. We all need the inspiration and hope that one day soon we can begin to travel again. But for now, let these amazing storytellers take you on unforgettable journeys.
