Rachel Taylor and Jody Daunton touched down in Kota Kinabalu in early April with seventeen days to explore and a jam-packed itinerary. As the founders, creators, and editors of Another Escape, they came to tell stories, and teamed up with Sticky Rice Travel to gain some insight on the wonders of Borneo. Based out of the UK, Another Escape is an outdoor lifestyle and creative culture print magazine that puts out two beautifully crafted volumes a year. For their seventh installment, Another Escape focused on themes that revolve around the natural world, and were understandably drawn to Borneo. While looking for an ideal partner on the ground in Sabah, they were attracted to Sticky Rice Travel because our “philosophy to create meaningful travel experiences whilst staying dedicated to protecting and conserving natural environments” aligned with their own ethos and values.
Their expedition took them across some amazing landscapes – down the Kinabatangan River, up the iconic Mount Kinabalu, and through the ancient forests of Danum Valley, to name a few. Jody toted a substantial amount of gear, including a hefty medium format film camera, while Rachel focused on collecting stories. The resulting issue is a true piece of art, featuring stunning photographs and wonderfully crafted narratives about our beautiful Borneo, along with some amazing profiles on our guides. As a print magazine, their online content is limited, but check out their website for a snippet of what to expect in Volume Seven, and then order yourself a hardcopy – it’s guaranteed to beautify your coffee table.
