SURPRISE: There’s a new AllSwell notebook coming your way and we’d like you to come away with us.
Like its predecessors, Notebook No.3 is a half-lined (WRITE), half-unlined (DRAW), two-in-one hub for your creative expressions, whether they be conveyed via words, doodles, or your own unique combination of both.
The cover photos were shot by Tiny Atlas Quarterly founder and our soon-to-be-travel partner Emily Nathan, while the inside covers are loaded with illustrations by Jimmy Mezei depicting go-to travel essentials as per our travel obsessed community’s recommendations.
Portraying lush ferns and swaying palm trees, Notebook No.3 inspired our two upcoming trips in collaboration with Tiny Atlas Quarterly and Earth Missions. Where are we headed? The exquisite coastal rainforest of British Columbia and the remote French Polynesian islands of Tahiti and Mo’orea. The best part? You’re all invited.
When: October 6th-11th, 2016
What: A group of up to 40 adventurers will spend five days in Wya Point, Tofino’s coastal rainforest, close to the world-famous Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island. Four experts - Emily Nathan of TAQ, our founder Laura Rubin, photographer and local legend Jeremy Koreski, and Earth Missions founder and travel expert Tom Werney - will host and provide surf, photography and creativity workshops. This trip requires a wetsuit, hiking boots and lots of film/memory cards.
Who: Designed for those who love the great outdoors and snapping wildlife as much as they love surfing and sunsets. Best suited for travelers willing to don thicker wetsuits to brave the cooler waters of British Columbia.
Tahiti and Mo’orea
When: November 9th-15th, 2016
What: This trip is limited to 12 adventurers, two groups of six, whose time is divided between Tahiti Island and Mo’orea. For three days on Tahiti Island, six travelers will live like locals in a home-stay escorted by TAQ’s Emily Nathan and AllSwell’s Laura Rubin. Those who surf will find manageable but challenging waves to test their skills during the off-season at Teahupoʻo, the famous point where the best come to compete. For those who don’t, there will be photography and creative workshopping on the agenda. The other group of six will venture to Mo’orea accompanied by Earth Missions’ Tom Werney and local photographer Ben Thourad. Here, visitors can shoot tropical landscapes, explore the reef that’s accessible mere minutes from shore, and fit in an adrenaline-pumping surf session. Mid-trip the two groups will swap locations to experience the beauty of both islands.
Who: Ideal for surfers and creative adventurers who are as eager to explore the jungle and snap underwater scenes as they are to ride some of the world’s most exciting waves.
We can’t wait to explore with you - you can find further information about both trips here.
