Mindful Travel AWAY magazine inspires explorers and travelers drawn to authentic cultural and spiritual experiences to embark upon their adventures while staying within their means. Travel is often seen as an activity for the glamorous. Our stories show readers how they can have simple treks to a peaceful campsite and exotic adventures, or anything in between. All vacations can have a twist of the eclectic or a bow to beautiful simplicity. Our adventures provide easy to accomplish options for those who seek big experiences on a small budget. AWAY takes pride in producing a mindful product. Much like our insightful travel stories, our publication challenges the idea that budgeting means cutting corners on beauty. As the saying goes, the outdoors is free. Yes, you may need to pay for some gear, but for the most part the grand beauty of our earth is provided at a bargain price. This fall issue takes you on a road trip up Maine’s coast where you can experience it’s beauty and find the best places to visit, all while watching the spectacular autumn color coincide with the slowing down of the tourist season. All too often people return from a vacation declaring they need a vacation for their vacation. This road trip avoids that feeling of vacation overkill by taking you to a place that is off the tourist track. As business owners near a halt for the season, visitors can feel the exhale of relief and participate in the joy that is encompassed in enjoying the last days open for business. As Maine’s locals celebrate a short break, you too can find your own balance. This issue also focuses its lens on a story of one woman’s journey to create new meaning in her life by working in Maine’s burgeoning lobster industry. Her hard work has paid off in dividends. Her balance is back and she wants to share it with everyone. A
