Travel adventures from north to south

Remote Experiences is the visual account of the extraordinary journeys of photographer David De Vleeschauwer through the world’s most uncharted territories. In pursuit of the best of travel, he has been passionately exploring the world for more than two decades. Focused on 12 unexpected destinations, it wanders from north to south, with the ease of well-seasoned explorers. Its photographic reportage brings to life an eclectic collection of memories. He ventures to paradise-like, off-the-radar forgotten kingdoms with ancient Buddhist outposts in the foothills of the Himalayas and traces the footsteps of pilgrims and sheepherds in Italy. From the plains of Botswana to the outer realms of Antarctica aboard a superyacht icebreaker, this unique guide outlines its own geography of the world. Along the way, we meet individuals, landscapes and even vessels that become the serendipitous heroes of these wondrous adventures. De Vleeschauwer's shared experiences depict a world where the foreign becomes familiar, the isolated accessible. In our digital, overly consumptive age people want a true sense of place, which might be rugged, refined, or rural.

Complete with travel accounts and detailed descriptions of trips that range in price from an affordable 250 euros to an ambitious one million euros, Remote Experiences takes its readers on an unforgettable voyage to those overlooked or sometimes forgotten spaces “where time stands still”, encouraging us to do just that—until we take to the road again…
