Lodestars Anthology Issue 11 (Portugal) is out now. Lodestars Anthology is not your traditional travel magazine. Focusing on one country per issue, it is instead an independent publication all about place, journeys and discovery. 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. Discover Portugal with Lodestars Anthology Issue 11.
Lodestars Anthology is an independent magazine-meets-journal for curious travellers who long to be inspired, see the world and meet interesting characters along the road. Lodestars Anthology is focusing on one country per issue, it is a scrapbook of place, getting to the heart of a location and uncovering its quirks, charm and splendour. Basically, we’re a publication all about creativity, travel and exploration – one you’ll ideally like to keep atop a coffee table. Or filled with scribblings and safely stored in your suitcase. We hope they fuel your love of adventure, life and all the people, flavours, destinations and ideas this world has to offer. So go on. Pack a bag, hit the road and start your adventure. Lodestar is a star used to guide seafaring travellers, most typically Polaris, the North Star. Something that acts as a model or inspiration.
