Casting Caution to the Wind collates the first-hand accounts of ten everyday nomads whose journeys cross the length and breadth of the planet with a common cause to resurrect the boldness and curiousity that many of us lose in adulthood. Some tell tales of micro-experiences—snapshots in time—of wayward adventures by bike or thumb; some dig deep into their most life-affirming moments cultivated through adversity or chance encounters; some use the prompt to explore macro themes of migration, belonging and purpose. Blending heart-thumping adventure and humane musings, Casting Caution to the Wind tracks the carefree moments that stretch between home and an unknown destination on the road.

While pedaling 3,000 miles across India, Jack Few experiences an intoxicating relationship with the country that unfolds from the open road. A burning desire to expand his connection with both humanity and travel leads him into uncharted territory, where the powerful interplay between beauty and chaos becomes an evocative story told straight from the heart of the country’s people, spirit and rugged interior.

An Eastern Tailwind is a work of creative travel literature, a philosophical exploration of the essence of adventure, and most importantly, an ode to India.


In 2017, an adventurous Australian couple had their ‘f*ck it’ moment. They were done travelling in the same tried and tested ways. They wanted a challenge, something unforgettable, something unique to write home about.

On a whim they moved to Canada and bought a disused ’98 short bus on Craigslist. You know, one of those yellow school buses we’ve all seen in films? And with minimal experience, little money and a lot of innovation they converted it into the beautiful mobile home before you.

Hard-bound and adorned with beautiful imagery, she’s more than just a pretty face to grace your coffee table. Comprised of two parts, the first details the step-by-step process of converting an old bus into a mobile home. Caravan, bus, van or boat, the information here has applications to any mode of transport. Part two is a deep-dive into the trip itself and the outdoor and culinary adventure that ensued. Packed with travel anecdotes, recommended hiking trails, breweries and wineries across the country, Sasha and Brent leave no reasonable stone unturned when it comes to discovering the best of what's on offer.

Michael Maine

On Vélo chronicles Maine’s hapless bicycle trip across the English Channel with his friend Maggie, a romantic optimist “born 30 years too late”. The two concoct an ill-prepared cross-country journey into the heart of rural France in a quest for freedom and adventure, dragging their bunch of motley international friends along for the ride. Maine’s observations on humanity while smoking his way through the countryside, and the group's Beat-generation lifestyle, makes On Vélo a captivating portrayal of longing and timeless friendship in the formative years between youth and adulthood.
