The Escape Vol. 34

Long-time friends of Passenger may remember The Escape. Our monthly roundup of good vibes for the roamers, wanderers and daydreamers. It could be a cool new album drop, tales from a wild camping trip or a cookout recipe almost too good to share.

We hope you enjoy our latest edition. Here are the top 8 things the Passenger team are feeling this month.

1. Celebrating Queer Joy with Amelia Le Brun

We caught up with friend of Passenger, Amelia Le Brun, about her recent trip exploring the glens of Scotland, and what it’s like for a queer person navigating the outdoors. 

2. Eco Retreat in North Devon

A place to slow down, practice and reconnect”. Escape the busyness of the day to day and engage in a bit of mindful creativity at this eco retreat in North Devon. Sounds like our kind of getaway.

3. Easy Campfire Nachos

Easy to make and with very little kit required, nachos are up there with our favourite campfire bites. The cheesier the better.

4. BlooBloom: Pair for Pair

The folks over at BlooBloom are doing things differently and for the better. Every time you buy a pair of their handcrafted glasses frames, they donate a pair to someone in need in the developing world.

5. Austin Mackay - Secret Garden Tour 2023

Just an Aussie musician roaming around in his van bringing great sounds and good vibes to people’s gardens and backyards. Love it.

6. Read About Off Grid Life

A cabin in the woods

Bestselling author of Van Life, Foster Huntington, brings us another beaut book featuring stunning photography and inspiring stories of life off-grid in unexpected places.

7. Zero Air Miles

Adventurer Torbjørn ‘Thor’ Pedersen from Denmark chose the road less travelled. He spent the best part of a decade travelling to every country, without flying. A world-first and with a docco in the making, we bet he has some epic campfire tales.

8. Lazy Summer Playlist

One for hazy days and road trip good vibes. It’s easy listening at its best and is a solid soundtrack for summer.
