MANAGING EDITOR’S NOTE

“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” –– JACK KEROUAC

Welcome to map magazine’s 137th issue and our last for 2011. The Wanderlust issue is always a favourite for the map team because, in just a couple of weeks, most of the team will be scattered around the world enjoying a well-earned break. From Indonesian island-hopping and surf camps, to design-hunting in boutique hotels or volunteering in Cambodian orphanages, travel has always been a big part of map magazine’s culture. Whether daydreaming about travel, travelling in our imaginations while listening to others tell of their incredible travel tales, or simply travelling via the internet, the art of travel is always at the forefront of the team’s

mind and serves as a foundation for much of our inspiration. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who touches map in some way – from the map team, to readers, advertisers and everyone in between. One of the great opportunities I get to experience everyday is working with a talented group of individuals. Everyone in their own little way shapes map into what it is today. I hope 2011 has been a prosperous year for you all and we wish you a Merry Christmas, a wonderful New Year and an incredible 2012. Thanks for sharing the journey with us so far and we look forward to sharing more stories of dreamers with you in 2012. Remember to dream ...

EDITOR’S MEMO

––

If there’s one thing that imbues the spirit of map magazine, it’s the fact that it’s important to chase your dreams. The magazine itself was founded on a dream of positive media by our managing editor, Carl Lindgren, and in the 12 years since, we’ve shared the dreams of more than 1000 people. While putting together our December/January Wanderlust issue, it was so lovely to see how the concept of chasing your dreams in life has been reiterated in the words of the people we’ve interviewed this month. For all of them, the success and happiness they now enjoy came because they dared to take the leap and pursue their dreams with passion, no matter how unattainable they were at the time. As the map team heads off on holidays for the next month, we wish you a lovely Christmas and New Year – and we hope that 2012 is the year that you go after your dream!

A VIBRANT PIED-À-TERRE DRENCHED IN SUNSHINE

When 19th-century German poet Christian Morgenstern declared that “Home is not where you live, but where they understand you,” he captured the essence of successful hospitality. While the sprawling beaches of Florida are a world away from the life of a 19th-century Bavarian wordsmith, the welcoming vibes pulsating off the sandy beaches and lively streets of Miami are an ideal backdrop for a home away from home. Lords South Beach Hotel in Miami Beach is leading the pack when it comes to advancements in gay travel. Proudly coining itself ‘appropriately oriented’, the hotel’s main focal point is to make guests feel at home, amidst a dazzling display of architectural and design feats. Sporting a delightfully all-year-round summery aesthetic, the hotel’s design features bold white and yellow hues, contrasted

with vibrant splashes of striking artworks, sleek furniture and quirky bar features. Visitors can prop up poolside and recline in designer grandeur in a chic cabana, or relax in palatial splendour in one of the vibrant penthouse suites. Fusing just the right amount of kitsch charm with beachside frivolity, the hotel offers a smorgasbord of casual socialising, with its glamorous in-house bars dotted with retro-style furniture and stylish design. Visitors who are fortunate enough to pass through the hospitable doors of Lords Beach Hotel are sure to feel an overwhelming sense of peace, tranquillity, and fun, where every whim and desire is anticipated. And with services such as the intriguingly named ‘Stay Naked Dining’, hypo-allergenic pillows and remote checkout, this cutting-edge locale doesn’t shy away from pushing the boundaries.

What is your profession? I’m a tour-guide driver for

What is your profession? I handmake piñatas. A piñata

Intrepid Travel (Intrepid Connections) based in Alice Springs. I take groups of people on camping trips out into the Red Centre to explore Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Watarrka (Kings Canyon).

is a character, an icon, an animal or any object that you can imagine, which is brightly coloured and decorated and filled with lollies and little toys. A piñata is generally suspended from a rope and is broken open by blindfolded children wielding sticks during a celebration or party.

tour guide/intrepid travel

What training or qualifications do you need to fill this role? Special driver’s licences and an Uluru-Kata Tjuta

Tour Guide Accreditation from Charles Darwin University. What are the key skills and responsibilities of the role?

Mechanical knowledge, excellent communication skills, cooking skills, the ability to problem solve and to work under pressure, and a love of storytelling. How did you get involved in your profession? Giving it a go! And a ‘can and will do’ attitude. I am so passionate about Australia and taking people to see this incredible part of the world. Could you break into the industry in other ways? Working as a language guide, working in stores in the area or cleaning trucks could all help people to break into the industry. What do you hope to achieve within your industry? To continue to develop my knowledge, skills and experience. Are you in the industry for the long term? Absolutely. I love my job and plan to stay with Intrepid Travel for as long as I can! What advice would you give someone looking to emulate your success? Never stop learning and always go out into the field with ‘new eyes’. Did you always think you would be in this role? Yes, I love what I do! What was your first paid job? I was a newspaper boy. What would you love to do if you weren’t in this role? I would be an anthropologist or an earth scientist. What inspires you? I am an inveterate learner with an infectious enthusiasm to understand my world – realising that the more I appreciate it, the less significant I become in it, yet paradoxically the greater I sense connectivity and a growing inner peace within it. Who is your rolemodel? David Attenborough, for his uncanny ability to simply disseminate complex ideas. What are your words of wisdom? Let Uluru open your eyes to the world!

piñata maker/self-employed

What training or qualifications do you need to fill this role? You only need creativity and persistence. What are the key skills and responsibilities of the role?

Creating a design that satisfies the client and brings joy to many people. How did you get involved in your profession? It has been a family tradition to make piñatas for children in my family for more than 20 years. Could you break into the industry in other ways?

Yes, but usually through family tradition. Sometimes people ask me to teach them to make piñatas and I give some lessons, but basically you just need your own creativity. You make the piñatas from your heart; each one is unique and special. What do you hope to achieve within your industry? Keeping the tradition alive for years to come. Are you in the industry for the long term? Yes, because I am one of few people from my Central America who continues the tradition in Australia. What advice would you give someone looking to emulate your success? Be passionate, patient, dedicated and willing to learn new skills. Did you always think you would be in this role? Yes, it’s tradition in my country (Guatemala) to continue the legacy and art of piñata making. What was your first paid job? I worked as a primary teacher in Guatemala for five years, working with orphans. It was a special time. What would you love to do if you weren’t in this role? Other arts and crafts. What inspires you? When I see the smiling faces on the children enjoying my piñata creations. Who is your rolemodel? My mother. She was incredibly wise and very creative. What are your words of wisdom? Be passionate and put love into everything that you do. Never stop being creative and always try to find your own way to bring happiness to others.

TRAVEL // FUNDS There are many exciting things about planning a trip – choosing an exotic destination, selecting the perfect boutique hotel and dreaming of the adventures you’ll be having for the next few weeks. Perhaps not quite as exciting, but equally as important, is the subject of finances while on the trip. Some people choose to wing it, sure they’ll find an ATM somewhere in their travels where they can get hold of some local currency. But for those who are more cautious, ECU Australia offers a range of foreign exchange/travel options, from reloadable, prepaid travel cards, to foreign cash, travel insurance and loans to fund your trip. @ www.ecu.com.au

DISCOVER: //notventures.notcot.org CURIOUS // AIRPORT It’s fascinating how an airport can set the tone for a traveller’s next voyage. Those who find themselves surrounded by hectic mayhem might arrive at their destination in a flap, whilst travellers who embark from an uncluttered streamlined airport might feel a sense of calm. Designed by Berlin-based architects J. Mayer H., the curiously shaped airport in the tiny town of Mestia is an architectural feat. Located in the far-northern reaches of Georgia (bordering Russia), the Mestia Airport encompasses two pipe-like structures that reach towards nearby towering mountain ranges and ski slopes. @ www.jmayerh.de

PETA FIELDING A penchant for sunshine, surf and well-brewed beer are just a few of the passions Peta Fielding shared with her husband Brennan when they first met. Together the duo have channelled their love for these elements into a range of craft beer that is helping to change the face of the amber liquid in Australia. Through impish tongue-in-cheek branding and products that each spin their own unique tale, Burleigh Brewing Co. – based, as its name implies, on the Gold Coast – prides itself on creating the genuine article.

The sun-drenched island state of Hawaii has provided the location for the beginnings of many dreams. Honolulu set the scene for a serendipitous evening in 1996 when Peta Fielding, an Australian corporate lawyer who was doing her MBA at the University of Hawaii, first encountered her soon-to-be husband Brennan at a party. “It was a mutual friend’s party,” Peta recalls, laughing. “And I really should have been home studying at the time.” Brennan, who grew up in Honolulu, had diverged from his initial dreams of becoming an engineer and left his university degree to become a brewmaster. Peta dreamed of running her own company. And so, as the two began their life together, it soon became an unspoken given that they would one day combine their skills to create a brewery together. “I always knew I wanted to run a business,” Peta recalls. “It didn’t matter what the product was, I just wanted to build a business.” Initially the duo took over the running of a brewery that Brennan was working at in Hawaii, giving them hands-on experience in the vagaries of running their own business. But eventually their hearts yearned to return to Australia to make an impact on a market that had remained unchanged for decades. “Living in America, we knew what potential there was for the market in Australia and we just desperately wanted to come back and do it,” Peta says. “A great opportunity came up for us to sell our interest in the brewery there and move back to Australia and put

20 map magazine

our plan into action.” Following a stage of intensive planning, Peta and Brennan launched their company, Burleigh Brewing Co., in 2006 before finally selling their first beer in August of 2007. The first brand to emerge from the Gold Coast-based brewery was Duke. “The reason why we began with the Duke brand was because, traditionally, a duke is the independent leader of a region – not the king, not taking over the world, he’s just all about the local region. And in the German tradition of lager brewing, they always used to say that beer shouldn’t travel more than a one-day horse-and-cart ride from the brewery because beer is meant to be fresh and, once it goes into the bottle, it doesn’t get better. So we wanted to be very traditional with that brand and basically say: ‘You’ve got to be here to have it.’” They went so far as to name the distribution area for the beer ‘Dukeland’, cheekily informing people via the bottle labels that if they didn’t live in Dukeland, they’d need to move in order to experience the coveted ale. “We still protect that brand and that concept very fiercely,” Peta says proudly. “But we were getting so many enquiries from interstate and we kept saying no to them. So we started to think that it was a bit silly from a business sense!” Refusing to budge on the philosophy of the Duke brand, Peta and Brennan decided that the solution was to create other brands that could satisfy the demand for their craft beers further afield. Other brews that

have since joined the Burleigh Brewing Co. stable include the moustachioed ‘HEF’, the ‘28 Pale Ale’, a full-flavoured lager known as ‘Bighead’ and, in addition to several others, the tongue-in-cheek ‘My Wife’s Bitter’, which Peta coined after Brennan had named beers after their two children, Daisy and Skagen, but not his wife. “The story behind each of the beers is so genuine that it naturally leads us somewhere,” Peta explains of the distinct branding of Burleigh Brewing Co.. “It’s not like we’re sitting in a room putting a beer in a bottle and then thinking of a label. There’s so much that goes into it that it just has its own story. With the 28 Pale Ale, that style of beer, in a sense, really gave some momentum to the craft beer revolution in America in the mid-seventies. The story for that branding came from a period of perfect surf for 28 days at Burleigh Head in 1975 and that whole era just had a sense of genuine, laid-back lifestyle, which is what that type of beer should be.” As for their niche market, Peta defines it as anyone who will appreciate their beer. “That’s the cool thing about craft beer, it really seems to see no bounds,” she laughs. “You don’t need to be a beer expert or be able to talk about the beer; you just need to want to try something, explore some flavours and like it. I guess other people are attracted to our beer because it’s independent, or because it doesn’t have any preservatives, or because there are real people behind it. We brew six different

beers in our regular line-up, knowing that everyone has different tastes.” Amongst the challenges that they have faced along the way, Peta says that the actual setting up of the business was one of the most difficult. “It was the fear in thinking: ‘Gosh, can we really do this?’” she reveals. “I suppose having a really good plan beforehand helped us overcome that, but actually taking the step and putting the plan into action was massive. The thing that really got us to do it in the end was when we read Richard Branson’s book, Screw It, Let’s Do It. We were planning so much, trying to get the plan perfect and in the end we just said: ‘Well, screw it, let’s do it!’” Five years later, and the two still find great joy in walking past a bottleshop or bar and seeing their beer in a bottle, knowing the sheer effort that was required to get that bottle there from its very origins as just a simple plan on paper. “We’re so lucky to be able to do this together and that was very much a part of our plan,” Peta says. The pair’s mutual admiration is unmistakable. “Brennan inspires me because he’s so passionate,” Peta smiles. “After 20 years of brewing he’ll still walk in the morning after a brew and see

that the beer is fermenting like it should and skip around the tank in excitement! I think we inspire each other in that sense.” The fact that they feel such excitement for the product is undoubtedly a secret to the duo’s success. “We almost feel like we’re cooking dinner for people each day,” Peta laughs. “We’re making something and we want them to enjoy it – unfortunately we don’t get to sit there with them all the time. But from the feedback we get back, we know they’re enjoying it and that little things like our labels make people smile. That really puts a spring in your step.” Revealing the couple’s love for the ocean, the brewery itself is dotted with surfing memorabilia. “That’s us really; it’s who we are,” Peta affirms. “Brennan came from the ocean, in a sense, and when we moved to Australia, there was no question as to where we were going to be. We love getting out on the water; it’s a whole other world out there and it’s where I find peace.” As someone who finds peace with her life in general, Peta’s words of wisdom for the world are simple. “Be yourself,” she says. “Figure out who you are, what you want to do and what you want your life to be.“

JANELLE MCCULLOCH To travel, to really revel in a moment that will forever entwine itself into the depths of your memory, is to give in to your senses so completely that you engage with an experience with your whole heart. The whistle of a warm breeze caressing your ears. The soothing massage of ancient cobblestones under your feet. The sight of an archaic building so beautiful that it makes your heart swell. Close your eyes and re-engage with these senses at anytime and you’ll be transported back across the world to the very place you first experienced them. For some, such sensorial travel memories are a rare treat; fortunately, there are people like author, journalist and photographer Janelle McCulloch to fuel their imaginations.

A dream unfulfilled, as disappointing as it may be, often simply means that there’s an even wilder dream just waiting to come true. Throughout her childhood, Janelle McCulloch dreamed of becoming an interior designer or architect, regularly letting her boundless creativity loose on her parents’ living room. So when the time came to choose the educational journey she would embark upon to take her through her next stage of life, it was only natural that she settled on architecture. But while her passion was unflappable, her maths skills were less than so, and her foray into the design of the built environment was not to be. While her heart may have been broken, retrospect would soon teach her that particular twist in fate was the beginning of a brilliant career. Prior to that fateful event, Janelle lived somewhat of a nomadic childhood, moving around country Victoria with her parents who were teachers. Inveterate travellers, her mum and dad instilled a fierce wanderlust in their children from the moment they took their first steps. Roadtrips were the travel method of choice and at age three Janelle was already embarking on an extensive journey around Australia, followed by a similar one across the USA at age eight. “I grew up in a suitcase in a sense,” Janelle laughs of her upbringing. “We’d been very fortunate because Mum and Dad are such avid travellers and they took us overseas on several trips. But living in the country all of my childhood, I think I just got to an age where I just wanted to be in the city. As soon

28 map magazine

as I was 16, I jumped on a plane and went to Denmark as a student with Rotary.” It was when she returned from Europe, and finished high school that Janelle faced the task of redefining her dreams, having had to make the detour from her planned architecture studies. She decided to move to Sydney, where she landed a job as the assistant to a famous, and somewhat notorious, magazine editor. “She’d just fired two other secretaries and two other ones had been put in hospital for nervous breakdowns,” Janelle recalls. “But I survived it for a year and it was such an extraordinary experience, thrown in with the glamour of Sydney and its media and designers.” Inspired by the experience, she soon returned to university to study media and communications, which enabled her to return to her childhood dream. “I ended up specialising in design and architecture, so I kind of came around the back door,” Janelle says brightly. “I don’t regret going into media rather than architecture; it ended up being a good thing that I didn’t get into the degree!” In the decade that followed, her media career took her around the world and she worked as a journalist and magazine editor in both Australia and the UK. She also sojourned to Paris for a time in an attempt to soothe a broken heart – and instead commenced an ardent love affair with the city itself. When she reached her early thirties, having spent the past 10 years working in

THE WANDERLUST ISSUE DECEMBER11/JANUARY12

media, the dream most present in Janelle’s mind was to pen her first book. Her idea was to create a small coffee table book that profiled hidden beach hideaways around Australia. Armed with an unrelenting passion for her idea, she began pitching her book to publishers, hoping that someone would share her enthusiasm. “No publishers would listen to me – even though I’d had ten years of magazine experience by then,” Janelle admits. “It’s very hard to get your foot in the door as a journalist or author, but you just have to grit your teeth and be tenacious.” Determined to chase her dream, Janelle persisted, finally finding a publisher who was willing to listen to her pitch. ”She said to me on a Friday morning: ‘I’m going on the first holiday that I’ve had for ten years on Monday; if you can be here today, you’ve got ten minutes with me,’” Janelle recalls. “So I got on a plane that day and flew to see her for ten minutes and pitched my idea.” Proving that your life path can change in an instant, Janelle’s passion and willingness to seize opportunity triumphed. She walked out with a two-book deal, including her first-ever title, Slow Coasting: Australia’s Most Beautiful Seaside Hideaways. Combining her passion for design, architecture and travel with her talent for writing – and an endless thirst for inspiration – Janelle has since published 18 books, including 15 architecture, interior design, travel and gardening books, two travel memoirs and a novel. Her latest offering is a soul-stirring insider’s guide to the city she

Paris: A guide to the city’s creative heart opens a door to the enchanting yet lesser-known side of the French capital, taking readers on a sumptuous visual journey through each arrondissement and its secrets. Janelle’s inspiration for the book came from her penchant for trying to inspire others. “The book came about because I’d been to Paris so many times and I’d written two other bestsellers about the city, so people kept asking me about where they should go,” Janelle explains. “It’s really important to share your experiences with people, so I thought it would be great to put it into a book as a kind of illustrated guide to the most creative places in Paris. It’s almost like a visually rich collage of the city.” Asked what made her fall in love with Paris, Janelle reveals that it was its coquettish ability to never reveal itself completely. “Every time I go to Paris, I think I’ve seen it all and then I always discover something new that becomes my favourite part of the city,” she smiles. “That’s the beauty and hidden treasure of Paris.” Most of the book’s charming photography is by Janelle’s own hand but, despite her success, she is loath to call herself a photographer. “I consider myself as someone who

clicks and hopes the picture turns out!” she laughs. “But you don’t need to be a good photographer; you just need to be passionate about the places that you see, because the photos will take themselves. When you’re travelling and taking photographs, you have to remember what you’re looking at in your mind and your heart. Don’t just view life through a lens – put the camera down and take in where you are and appreciate it.” Though she still travels up to six months of the year for work, Janelle’s dream now is to convert the old country home (and its three libraries) she owns on the outskirts of Melbourne into a creative retreat, called The Old Library House, for those in search of inspiration. She has also recently launched a blog, A Library of Design, where she shares her daily inspirations and tales from her adventures over the years. Janelle’s advice for young writers, – or anyone chasing their dream – stems from her own journey in life. “Just take the first step – don’t think of what you have to do,” she says. “It’s really important to live the life that you’ve imagined for yourself. And if it doesn’t happen for you straight away, don’t worry. If you really want to live a certain life, you can.”

connected world, what does it mean to go to work? For many, a desk and an office chair are very important factors to consider when devising an ideal workspace. Work and Play by Soer is a work/play concept that is based on fact that many workers are constantly immersed in a digital world. Designed to reduce storage space, the furniture concept highlights that a majority of necessary work-related information is stored digitally, rather than physically. Streamlined, simple and slim, the range includes a dynamic wooden shelf/seat/storage set-up.

It’s easy to be lulled into a comforting sense of relaxation by a rocking chair’s rhythmic movement. Ergonomic and eyecatching, the KUDIRKA rocking chair creatively puts a futuristic spin on the traditional rocking chair. Designed to be seated at a dinner table rather than tucked away in the corner of a lounge room, the chair can also be covered with a waterproof and scratchproof covering, transforming it into an outdoor piece of furniture.

manners and discourage people from leaving the table before everyone else has finished, designer Marleen Jansen took a creative approach. Her solution was to create The Courtesy Table – a see-saw-like table that requires its occupants to achieve a sense of balanced harmony in order to enjoy sitting down to dinner together. But while it might be succesful in improving the manners of adults, children may not be as well behaved in the presence of a see-saw.

THE RABBIT HOLE

SHOP 2, 73 VULTURE STREET, WEST END T. 0433 953 774 www.ideationcafe.com

When an inquisitive girl stumbled across a seemingly harmless rabbit hole, she cemented her fate as her wild imagination led her towards a journey into Wonderland. Understanding that imaginations sometimes need a push to get creativity flowing, The Rabbit Hole invites creativity to pour through its doors, pull up a seat, plug in a laptop and get to work. With its in-house Ideation Cafe, the West End space welcomes passersby seeking a coffee pick-me-up, and also offers workspaces for hire behind its cafe frontage – enticing creative thinkers to convene in a community-focused space. Seeking to create a shared, non-commitment-based workspace, owner Dahlia Ishak has dreamed up

a walk-in walk-out, guilt-free workspace, where new ideas, plans and dreams can come and go as they please. Whilst moving throughout the space, you’ll notice colourful design books sitting in the library, neat desk spaces for hire, and a set of stairs leading to a soon-to-be-unveiled outdoor courtyard space. As you move towards the back of the room, you’ll spy a private boardroom. Designed as a collaborative space for small lectures, meetings, and brainstorming sessions, the room boasts its own ‘ideas walls’, which invite participants to add scribbles, drawings, mind maps and any other manner of brainstorming directly onto the walls.

Vulcana Women’s Circus has been twirling, contorting, performing and training since 1995, taking up residence at the Brisbane Powerhouse precinct in 2000. Established as an outlet for women to explore circus training and fitness opportunities in a welcoming and non-competitive environment, the Vulcana community focuses on providing support and inclusion, working with numerous Brisbane-based community initiatives. Housed in the historic Stores Studio, the space is dominated by its high ceilings, reaching skywards and inviting exciting aerial adventures to take place amidst the rafters. As the light filters through the tall narrow windows, sharp shadows are cast across the training

When you walk throughout the space, your feet connect with the firm but comforting feeling of the training mats, and your hands brush across the historic brick walls, paint slightly peeling to reveal hidden stories of the unique building. You hear a slight breeze gently coaxing a hanging trapeze or languid rope to commence a gentle spiralling movement. And as you explore further, your gaze is drawn towards a curious collection of training props, where brightly colourful hula hoops nestle alongside stilts, first-aid kits and neatly coiled rope. This lofty space abounds with endless possibility, and the opportunity to face seemingly impossible feats.

creative hotelier

LOH LIK PENG With wanderlust pulsing through his veins, Loh Lik Peng’s love for travel has always inspired his adventurous spirit. His professional journey took an inadvertent turn in 2002, when he found himself making the foray from corporate lawyer to hotelier. Since opening his first hotel in 2003, Peng has refreshed the concept of boutique lodgings in Asia, driven by his passion for creating experiences that provoke thought. His vision is now responsible for a suite of unforgettable domiciles across the world, including the New Majestic and Wanderlust hotels in Singapore, clandestine The Waterhouse on the docks of Shanghai, and the Town Hall in London – all members of the Design Hotels group.

My parents are from Singapore, but I was actually born in … Ireland and I spent a large chunk of my life there. We moved back to Singapore soon after I was born but then I returned to Ireland for school. It was interesting because it was during the eighties and there weren’t many Chinese kids in Ireland at that time! As a child, I always thought I would be … a doctor, because my parents were both doctors. But somewhere along the way I realised that it really wasn’t for me. I actually applied to medical school, but three weeks before I was supposed to go I realised that it really wasn’t what I wanted to do. So I applied to law school instead. I went from being a corporate lawyer to a boutique hotelier because … it was during the last recession and I was getting a little bit bored. I had started as a lawyer during the last Asian crisis and that wasn’t really a good time to be starting because all I was doing at that time was bankruptcy work. It was really depressing for a young lawyer. I said to myself … this is really not what I signed up for. At the time, there were a lot of depressed properties for sale and there was a particular property in Chinatown – the ‘wrong’ part of Chinatown because it used to be the red-light area – and nobody wanted it. I bought it for a song … and at the beginning of 2003 started 1929, which, at the time, was Singapore’s first boutique

36 map magazine

hotel. That hotel really sparked a realisation that boutique hotels could work in Singapore. When we first opened, it wasn’t something that people were familiar with and it took a bit of education. Now I think it’s something that people really appreciate. People who are very well travelled … are the types who usually stay at our hotels. They’ve really done their own research and it’s often people from the fairly wealthy younger set. We also get some interesting corporate types who are in industries like video-game design and architecture – people like that. The concept for each boutique hotel we create is … standalone. We don’t have a set approach. What we tend to do is look at each property as it comes along and then work with different designers to see if there’s anything interesting we can do. The fun part of it is … that at the New Majestic each room is different. We worked with about a dozen artists to execute that. It was a process of curation between the architect, myself and an art curator – and the artists themselves. We had lots of proposals and we got rid of the ones that just weren’t buildable due to physical constraints or cost, and we whittled it down to ones we could execute. It was also very difficult … because it was building 30 different individual rooms. So we when were designing the Wanderlust, which is 29 rooms, we decided to just have one designer responsible for each floor.

THE WANDERLUST ISSUE DECEMBER11/JANUARY12

I’d rather work with smaller hotels … because hotels around the 30–50 room mark are ideal for me. The Waterhouse in Shanghai is 19 rooms, but the Town Hall in London is 98 rooms. The key to good design in a hotel … for me, is something that is a little unusual. I don’t necessarily go to a hotel to find a home away from home, which a lot of people do. When I travel I like to be provoked a little bit and to be put out of my comfort zone so that I look at things anew. It’s always an adventure for me and I like hotels that give me a sense of that, whether it’s the neighbourhood or the design. Of course, it has to be comfortable at the end of the day, but I like something a little bit off the wall. The Waterhouse is … what the Meatpacking District in New York was 10–15 years ago. It’s at the old docks of Shanghai so it has this tremendous architecture in old industrial warehouses right by the waterfront, but still close to the city. Stuff that you dream of and would usually find in places like New York or London. One of my most memorable hotel experiences … was in this little hotel in Big Sur in California. I always remember it for its location rather than anything else. You stay in these little chalets overlooking an enormous cliff and it’s amazing. I imagine that the boutique of hotel of the future will … continue to evolve. People’s tastes change, technology changes and urban renewal changes. Design hotels

tend to be in urban renewal areas because those are areas where you can push the boundaries a little bit. They tend to catch the mood of the moment and the design of a particular area. If you’re in a high-end expensive shopping area, chances are that the hotels there is going to be a Ritz-Carlton or something like that. I‘d love to build a hotel in … New York. It’s just one of those cities that represents a really lively place with a mix of lots of different cultures, leading-edge design, art and fashion. That whole milieu for me is really interesting. One day I’ll hopefully do something there – probably a little bit down the track. A hotel shouldn’t be … a place where only tourists go. It has to have some local relevance and that’s something we spend a lot of time on. A lot of that comes down to the concept of the hotel’s restaurant being attractive to locals so that people will come to it and so it will always be lively. People often ask me … if I consider myself to be a success. I have a hard time answering that because I think that, at one level, I’ve been quite successful, but it’s very early days and I’ve certainly had my share of failures too. I certainly don’t see this as the end

map magazine

of the journey, but I don’t know what my measure of success is. I’ve come to realise that … everything involves some aspect of luck. I think I’ve been lucky in many respects and have just been there at the right time. I’m inspired by … the early pioneers of boutique hotels. On a personal basis, I’m really inspired by my parents. I guess one of the reasons I really want to succeed is to please my parents. Maybe when I have my own children that motivation might change. The thing that gets my blood going is … a new experience. Seeing and doing new things – particularly at the start of a new project. I love the energy that comes from when you start putting all the pieces together. I find peace when I’m … 20,000 feet up in the air in an aeroplane cabin. Travel really is one of the best ways to unwind. My advice to the world would be to … try new things all the time. Don’t be afraid to try. A lot of people are always afraid to take that first step, but you just need to stick your foot out and see what happens. At a certain stage in life, failure doesn’t really matter. You’ve just got to take it as one of life’s lessons.

When food is crafted with a dose of authenticity and a generous serving of happiness, it is bound to exude a flavoursome hard-to-pin-down quality. Such is the case at vibrant local spot Harajuku Gyoza, which serves ‘little Japanese dumplings of happiness’ to hungry Fortitude Valley locals. A creative take on Japanese dumplings and casual izakaya-style dishes, the dumpling and beer bar serves simple, fresh fare. Perch yourself around the bar and watch as the chefs whip up delectable morsels on the gyoza grill, or savour grilled or poached gyoza filled with chicken, duck, pork, prawns or fresh vegetables, or a sweet apple gyoza for dessert.

At Pear Cafe & Bar, it’s only natural that, hankering for a vibrant slice of forgotten youth, your first instinct is to zero in on the Fairy Bread listed on the menu. As your eyes move around the quaint space, you might also spy the colourful array of Pantone mugs, their pop-art colours keeping creative minds happy.

Nestled in the undulating streets of Highgate Hill, this warm and inviting nook exudes a comfortable ambience, as if it has been dishing up delicious fare and good coffee forever.

Whether syrupy treacle, rich brown sugar, featherlight icing sugar or traditional sugar cubes, a touch of sweetness is a welcome addition to daytime snacking. A pint-sized corner of sweet treats, Five Sugars is nestled inside Lavish Essentials boutique in the quaint Logan Road precinct in Woolloongabba. Serving local Cleanskin Coffee, single-origin fairtrade chocolate, cupcakes in pastel hues from Poppy Cakes, and Dello Mano brownies, the little cafe focuses on fostering a love of quality.

A kitchen is a place for seeking sustenance and a sense of comfort. Bespoke cabinetmaker and kitchen-design company Plain English has devised a kitchen showroom that harnesses contemporary needs, whilst retreating to natural and simple materials found in bygone ages. Evocative of ‘urban cabin living’, the Osea Kitchen brings the natural environment back to an inner-city lifestyle. The spacious kitchen features soft Nordic-inspired hues, minimalist storage compartments and discreet detailing. @ www.plainenglishdesign.co.uk

One of the oldest condiments on the planet, salt is also one of the most useful ingredients found sitting on the kitchen bench. An ancient form of natural salt, Himalayan Salt Dreams Crystal Salt is hand-mined in the foothills of the Himalayas. Ranging in colour from crystal-clear white, to dusty pinks and rich reds, the salt is free from pollutants. Sourced sustainably, the fairtrade salt is slightly milder than common salt. Distributed by Oppenheimer, the crystals can be used in anything from table salt and cooking, to detoxifying bath salts. @ www.oppenheimer.com.au

Competition is fierce when it comes to mugs for transporting coffee on the go. While we now understand that it’s much kinder to the planet to bring our own mug to our favourite espresso nook, it’s hard to decide which one to use. The Wave Commuter Mug is a worthy specimen. Made from double-walled porcelain to insure that your beverage of choice stays well insulated, the svelte vessel comes with its own drip filter holder that fits perfectly on top of it, meaning you can also make your own coffee on the go. @ www.charlesandmarie.com

CUT // PRECISION Whilst some recipes invite lenient attention to detail, others require stringent measurements and exact proportions. You can prepare your homecooked cuisine with a meticulous precision that would impress any esteemed chef, with the help of a designer cutting board. The culinary brainchild of Lithuanian designer Darius Petrulaitis, the Cut-itsharp Chopping Board is designed to help you chop, cut, julienne and slice with scrupulous accuracy. Made from a special solid material called Corian, the handy chopping board also features its own metric ruler. @ www.contraforma.com

IGA Marketplace Greenslopes sustainable Taking the time to look at things outside the box can be the key to creating something truly remarkable. Motivated to create a supermarket that has as much respect for the environment as the fresh produce it stocks, Brad Hopper created IGA Marketplace Greenslopes – one of Australia’s most environmentally conscious supermarkets. As you step into the supermarket you are greeted by a colourful assortment of flowers and fresh produce stacked in large rustic wooden barrels. As you move further into the store, lines of gourmet groceries begin to reveal themselves. Also nestled in store is a resident butcher, a deli stocked with a premium selection of antipasto, meats and cheeses, and a bakery offering golden freshly baked goods. Those with a gluten intolerance are also catered for with a selection of gluten-free grocery lines and ready-to-eat meals. In line with its sustainability mantra, the store strives to stock produce from local farmers who promote sustainable farming

methods, and a large selection of organic produce and groceries is always in stock. Gourmet gift hampers can also be made on request, perfect for Christmas. The flowers, which are arranged by the in-store florist and are wrapped in recycled materials, are another eco gift idea. Recycled materials were used in the construction of the rustic fit-out, which features soothing earthy tones and exposed brick walls, and the store’s refrigerators and lights also contribute to lowering the shop’s carbon footprint. Visit the new IGA Marketplace Greenslopes and lower your carbon footprint this Christmas.

DENIM CO.

THE ALIBI ROOM

Recently celebrating its 10th birthday with a whimsical garden party, Denim Co. has etched itself into the fabric of Brisbane’s food and fashion landscape. Inspired by her travels through Europe, Fara Sutjipto returned to Brisbane a decade ago to open one of Brisbane’s first cafe and boutique establishments. The fashionable nook opens as the sun rises each morning and is still serving its famed hot chocolate and desserts late into the evening. Peruse the boutique followed by a light brunch, or stop by for a post-movie coffee and a slice of sugar-dusted sponge soaked in Galliano with a custard centre.

When the budget is strained during the festive season, organise a catchup at The Alibi Room’s famed Taco Tuesdays, where you can feast on tacos and burritos for just $2. Now joining the tacos on the Tuesday night menu are ribs, and tasty seafood platters are now available from 12:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The downstairs function room, which is equipped with a pinball machine, pool tables and local artworks, is also available for Christmas parties. Local artists are encouraged to contact The Alibi Room about displaying their work, as the venue takes no commission on sales.

SUMMER // GIG You would be forgiven for thinking that the fastest-selling debut album in British music history belonged to pop-icons The Beatles or rockers The Rolling Stones. Instead, the auspicious achievement belongs to indie-rock group the Arctic Monkeys, which holds the title with its debut album, Whatever People Say I am, I’m Not. Combining a brilliant fusion of British pop, humorous antics and a dizzyingly energetic live show, the four-piece band returns to Australia for the summer festival circuit, including a sideshow at Riverstage on January 14. @ www.ticketmaster.com.au

CANDLELIT // MUSIC Forever cemented in festive traditions, there is perhaps no better indicator that Christmas is fast approaching than the distinctive sounds of carolling. The annual IGA Lord Mayor’s Carols in the City will take place on December 10 at Brisbane’s Riverstage beneath a starry blanket. Local carollers will be joined by musicians Troy Cassar-Daley, former Australian Idol star Paulini, Marina Prior and hip-hop group Justice Crew performing before a candlelit crowd nestled on picnic rugs dotted throughout Riverstage and the Botanic Gardens. @ www.carolsinthecity.com.au

Adults, children and the youngat-heart take note: the literary and cinematic world’s most adored nanny, Mary Poppins, will soon fly into Brisbane. One of the most enjoyed tales of the 20th century, Mary Poppins will come to life in a musical production at QPAC. An adaptation of the book by Australian author P.L. Travers and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film, the musical’s reviews have labelled the Australian performance as ‘practically perfect in every way’. Let your imagination take flight at QPAC from December 30 to March 17. @ www.qpac.com.au

DEAD MAN’S BONES

BY SHE & HIM/MERGE RECORDS, 2011

BY ANTI, INC., 2009

While his brother and sister were listening to the likes of Alanis Morrisette and Oasis, Alex Clare found solace in the works of jazz, blues and soul. Channelling that into his own musical stylings, the London-based singer-songwriter’s energetic brand of soul won him a recording contract with Island Records, which released his debut album The Lateness of the Hour in July this year. Produced by Diplo & Switch, the album’s modern fusion of soul and pop makes for a summery specimen that is irresistibly infectious.

When contrasting musical traditions meet, the result is an intriguing melange of cultural influences. Black Music of Two Worlds is a beguiling combination of African, Arab and American music aimed at creating a new international music tradition. Produced by John Storm Roberts, who knew the virtues of world music long before most others were celebrating it, the album features the tinkering sound of Colombian marimba preceding a Palestinian call to prayer, while a West Indian drum and fife quadrille follows a Mende Muslim song from Sierra Leone.

It’s no secret that we are avid fans of Christmas here in the office (we’ve had carols on high rotation on the office stereo since October). Each year we look forward to adding to our ultimate Christmas playlist and one of the most anticipated releases this year was A Very She & Him Christmas. Featuring the endearing vocals of Zooey Deschanel, accompanied by M. Ward, the record is rather ethereal for a Christmas album but still a welcome addition. It’s also available for purchase in a festive red vinyl for those who are inclined.

United by their fascination with graveyards, zombies, ghosts, monsters or anything deathly, Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields were inspired to pen ‘a theatrical monster ghost love story’ for the stage. In order to provide the story with a musical accompaniment, they set about learning various instruments and Dead Man’s Bones was born. The duo’s self-titled debut album features a mix of gothic/gospel/showtunes, accompanied by the eager voices of the Silver Lake Conservatory of Music Children’s Choir.

BY ANDREW MCCARTHY & DON GEORGE

Tim Flannery’s adventures are in the tropical Pacific, a very different place from Australia. During the eighties and nineties he led teams of biologists collecting the unknown, the rare, and the common in PNG, ‘The Land of the Unexpected.’ From Manus, north of PNG, through New Ireland, Woodlark to Fiji and New Caledonia, he travelled in search of wildlife specimens for the great Australian museums. A cross between Indiana Jones and Charles Darwin, his contributions equal any of the renowned 19th-century collectors who opened the world of nature to the Northern Hemisphere.

Iris Murdoch put it one way – ‘Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart’ – and Billy Connolly another – ‘Marriage is a wonderful invention, so is a puncture repair kit.’ But for the two-wheeler, it’s just part of the cause. Whether roadie, tourer, mountain biker, trail rider, or casual, the lure of the pedals inspires freedom of spirit, and love of the outdoors. From 1817 to the present day, Chris Naylor captures this love in his accounts from people who recognised cycling as part of their being, and the places they loved to explore.

One of a host of small books that will keep you occupied for hours. Drop it into your pocket and you hardly know it’s there. But open it and you’ll find time will slip by until your destination arrives. Published by The Puzzle Society, more than 70 books include 20 on Sudoku, 10 on Crosswords, others on Mazematics, Logic, Hangman, Codesearch, and more. By my calculations, all 7000 puzzles would take about 40 eighthour days of your life to complete – if, that is, you get the answers pretty quickly! Well worth the challenge, but ‘open at your own risk’!

Thirty-three storytellers known for their work on the silver screen present a diverse selection of tales from around the globe. Whether it’s Alec Baldwin with ‘LA Memories’, ‘The Broome Circuit’ by Aaron Pedersen or ‘Arctic Adventure’ from Brooke Shields, you will find shortish and longish accounts of their experiences. Their work takes them around the world, and they reflect their encounters from the point of view of actor, director, writer. The result is an often funny, embarrassing, inspiring but always interesting collection of experiences ‘on the road.’

intrepid survivor

NIGEL BRENNAN As a photojournalist, Nigel Brennan was completely transfixed by the vibrant sights and sounds of the developing world. In August 2008, his inquisitiveness resulted in him, and Canadian reporter Amanda Lindhout, being held hostage in Somalia for 15 months, throwing his family into a harrowing ordeal to secure his release. The 39-yearold photojournalist became the longest-held hostage in Australian history outside of wartime. Together with his sister and sister-inlaw, Nigel has penned a book recounting his family’s traumatic experience. A brutally honest family love story, The Price of Life explores the very essence of what it means to love unconditionally.

How did writing this book help you personally reflect on your experience as a hostage? I found it incredibly helpful. It was quite healing in a way to emotionally relive everything that had happened because, during the experience, I was so devoid of emotion due to the simple fact that I was terrified of having a breakdown. Writing this book as a family and giving it the three perspectives really showed not only what I endured, but also what our whole family went through. What did you learn about yourself during your time in captivity? I had some real lightbulb moments in captivity. I’ve learnt to be more compassionate, less judgemental and more understanding of people. I can now understand that following your dreams is really important, but you need to think things through before you actually put them into action. People ask me if I hate the guys who took me – if I hold hatred or bitterness towards them. And I learnt that hatred is such a waste of emotion, because it’s such a self-destructive one. What is it going to achieve for me harbouring hatred towards those people? Why do you feel compelled to tell stories through photographs? I know that I was criticised for going into Somalia and into a dangerous country, but my counter to that is if journalists and humanitarian workers don’t venture into these places, then the rest of us are left

ignorant because we aren’t exposed to what’s going on in the world. Why is it important to foster inquisitiveness? Inquisitiveness leads to knowledge, because it entices you to seek out new things and to learn, and this quest for knowledge is such an important thing. As people, we should be constantly trying to grow our knowledge. For me, that’s why I love to travel. How did you stay positive throughout your time in Somalia? I was really fortunate to have Amanda there with me, because at the start she pulled me out of a depression. I was spiralling out of control and being quite negative, and she said to me: ‘You’ve got to be a bit more positive than this, buddy, because if you think negatively, that will have a negative outcome.’ We worked as a peer-support group for each other. What made you not give up? To be honest, it was that I wanted to see my family again. Throughout the whole 15 months, I was consumed by guilt and shame from what I was doing to them. I knew I was potentially going to destroy mum and dad’s retirement by putting them through a trauma because of my own ambition to go into a war zone. What drove me not to give up was definitely the thought of my brothers and sisters and mum and dad. What is success to you? For me, in the last few years, success would

THE WANDERLUST ISSUE DECEMBER11/JANUARY12

be just getting back to a really good place after going through a massive trauma and coming out of it and not looking at the experience as a bad thing. People always seem to look at trauma and think it’s horrendous, but something I’ve been learning about is the presence of posttraumatic growth. Where do you find peace in life? When I am at home. I think, before I was in captivity, I really craved being around other people – I didn’t feel comfortable being by myself or with myself. Whereas now, I really love just having my own space in my home reading, gardening and spending some time with my new puppy. Who inspires you? Around the first three months in captivity, we were sent a care package and inside it were some books. One of the books that I found incredibly inspiring was Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom. I think I read it more than 75 times while incarcerated. He went through 27 years of being treated brutally by other human beings, and his whole resolve was to come out of the situation and to not let them break him. He is proof that, if you put your mind to it, you can achieve amazing things. What are your words of wisdom? Don’t live a buried life. Don’t become so terrified that you’re unable to let go and follow your dreams. Strive to never let yourself get to a point where you feel you’ve wasted your life, because what’s the worst that could happen?

ALEXANDER SKARSGARD

COLIN FIRTH

MATTHEW BRODERICK

DIRECTED BY LARS VON TRIER

DIRECTED BY TOMAS ALFREDSON

DIRECTED BY BRETT RATNER

By the time Nordic actor Alexander Skarsgard celebrated his 25th birthday, he had already established his career in Sweden as a teen actor, served in the military, dabbled in university studies and made tracks in the international cinema industry. Alexander found international success with his role as a handsome 1000-year-old vampire on television series, True Blood. His latest film, Melancholia, follows the story of two newlyweds (Alexander and Kirsten Dunst) and their families as a mysterious planet, Melancholia, heads directly towards Earth. The imminent collision uproots buried family issues (Charlotte Gainsbourg stars as Kirsten Dunst’s sister), as the characters grapple with the concept of life and death.

As a child, Colin Firth spent his formative years living throughout England, Nigeria and America with his globetrotting family. During his time at school, he set aside a love of music and turned his creative talents towards acting. Following a stint working as a garbage collector, he embarked on a career spanning the stage, the big screen and television. After his recent success in The King’s Speech, Colin steps into a cinematic world littered with lies, action, deceit and death in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Set in the 1970s during the Cold War, the film depicts a group of British intelligence agents attempting to stage an operation to identify and capture a Russian agent spy. Based on a spy novel by John le Carré, the film also stars Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy.

When Ferris Bueller decided to skip school, Matthew Broderick’s grinning face was forever cemented in pop culture as an iconic symbol of teen life. In addition to garnering success with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Matthew has also starred in Broadway productions and comedic favourites Election and The Cable Guy. Alongside his creative success, Matthew is a keen table-tennis player and has studied the art of reiki. He stars in Tower Heist, the story of a group of hardworking fellows who discover that a wealthy businessman has ripped them off. Also starring Ben Stiller and Casey Affleck, the film follows the men as they employ the help of an ex-criminal to learn the tricks of the robbery trade in an attempt to restore a slightly warped sense of justice.

LANEWAY FESTIVAL

AT BRISBANE POWERHOUSE

AT THE TIVOLI

AT RNA SHOWGROUNDS

A Francophile’s love affair with France might manifest itself in a spray of fine perfume, or an impressive collection of Breton-striped shirts. Whatever form the infatuation takes, the stylish allure of France captivates all the senses. Celebrating French charm, music and culture, So Frenchy, So Chic once again returns to the Brisbane Powerhouse to showcase the best of the vibrant French music scene. Bluegrass band Moriarty joins compelling FrenchNigerian solo artist Asa in a doublebilled performance.

It’s the innate magical ability of music that enraptures an audience. SOULO Voices will take audiences on a globally inspired journey, from Ireland to the corners of Tibet. Four singer-songwriters will perform their solo works: Tenzin Choegyal will unveil traditional Tibetan composition fused with contemporary rhythms and Alan Kelly will perform traditional Celtic tunes. Nadia Sunde from The Swing Set will perform her solo roots music, and Anje West (from The View From Madeleine’s Couch) will release a touch of Brazilian fervour.

Conjuring up music that is has been described as ferocious and feverinducing, Crystal Castles is sure to deliver something unusual when the band performs in Brisbane in early 2012 as part of the summer festival circuit. One-part enigmatic, onepart frenzied, this lively duo promises to deliver a dose of energetic zeal to The Tivoli crowd. This experimental electronic Canadian duo is best known for its chaotic live performances and pocket-rocket front-woman Alice Glass’ energetic stage antics and action-packed sets.

It just wouldn’t be an Australian summer without a dose of international musicians descending on our shores for the festival season. Promising a multitude of music in an urban setting, the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival is returning to Brisbane. Kickstarting in a laneway in Melbourne, the festival has grown to support impressive line-ups each year. On January 28, Fortitude Valley’s RNA Showgrounds will come alive with artists such as Active Child, Feist, Laura Marling, electric-pop favourite m83 and The Panics.

mystic journey

HA LONG BAY, VIETNAM

According to Vietnamese legend, the gods sent a family of dragons to defend their country. This family of dragons began spitting out jewels of jade that turned into the islands and islets dotting the north-eastern coast of Vietnam, now called Ha Long Bay. Magically, between these islands and islets, numerous rocky mountains suddenly appeared creating a formidable fortress against invading ships. After the Vietnamese won the battle, the dragons decided to live peacefully in the bay and remain its protector to this day.

Today, Ha Long Bay is made up of about 1600 islands of various sizes sprinkled over an area of 1500 sq km. This densely concentrated zone of rocky islands, world famous for its spectacular scenery of grottoes and caves, now form a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a geographic work of art where visitors feel lost in a legendary and, at times, eerie world of limestone islands. Boarding a traditional junk boat from the mainland initially felt like an excursion about to descend on a tourist hotspot. But once we set sail, the intimacy of a small group of people with the similar goal of kayaking the more remote grottoes and caves took over and the atmosphere changed. My expectation of sunny days on the boat deck drinking cocktails faded as a late winter fog set in. But my disappointment was short-lived as the islands kept appearing and disappearing through the mist to create a dramatic scene that sent me back in time. After a couple of hours sailing and indulging in a lazy seafood feast, our first stop was Hang Sung Sot Cave on Bo Hon Island. Whilst heavily developed for tourism with granite pavements and coloured lighting throughout, it was still definitely worth a visit. The natural elements are now well-preserved – despite the actions of petty thieves who left their mark – and the immense size and grandeur of the cave is spectacularly on display. The cave’s neighbouring floating

58 map magazine

fishermen attempted to distract us as they furiously rowed their boats out to our junk to capture opportunities to sell their wares, ranging from shells to chips and beer. The experience of bartering with a tiny rowboat over the edge, or out of our bedroom windows, of the ‘mother ship’ was surreal. A customer service experience not to be missed! The next day was spent kayaking around the remote Van Chai Floating Village and into Dark Cave, a 200 m long dark tunnel penetrating a limestone mountain jutting out of an emerald sea. It was amazing to see how these floating villagers live, with more than 300 years of history remaining intact. Because the majority of Ha Long Bay islands are sheer to the water’s edge, without beaches, these people live most of their lives without touching land. Whilst the Van Chai Floating Village has a small nearby beach, the sands have been devoted to a shrine and its use is permitted only as a place of worship. The challenge of life on the water, wobbling over makeshift ramps between boats and pontoons, obtaining food and fresh water, raising children, and the challenge of healthcare, is a testament to how tough these people really are. But most are in it together and families generally stick together, and own boats and fishing gear to form their own floating community. Then there are others, somewhat outcasts, who live solo without a sense of community to assist

THE WANDERLUST ISSUE DECEMBER11/JANUARY12

with gathering life’s necessities. Whilst the hustle and bustle of the mainland is geographically within their reach, for most of these people, the financial and emotional comfort of mooring their boat and setting foot on land is limited. Beyond the floating village was what appeared to be a sheer cliff hundreds of metres high. As we kayaked closer, a 1–2 m horizontal slice out of the mountain revealed a tunnel. Floating through complete darkness with the sound of water lapping over rocks, and the reality that, in less than a couple of hours, the high tide would fill this small opening was a contrast between peace and an adrenaline rush. The tunnel is the only entry to a hidden paradise – a secluded lagoon. To my delight, another shorter tunnel led to a mystical inland lake. Sitting aboard my kayak, floating quietly in the middle of this mountain’s crystal clear lagoon, I felt an intense sense of being at peace and in tune with nature. Then, out in the middle of nowhere, in a mountain accessible only by kayaking through a pitch black cave where all I could hear was the trickling of water falling off the paddle or the chatter of a distant monkey … I hear Michael Jackson singing ‘You Are Not Alone’. In total contrast to all that surrounds me, the kayaking guide has decided that this song, being played on his phone at this moment, is a perfect fit to this location. Only in Vietnam!

HOBOHEMIA

DU MONDE BY DARYL WARK

Become part of the ‘cult of hobo’ at one of Paddington’s newest nooks, Hobohemia. Hobohemia cherishes and respects the treasures that were made in simpler times. Whittle the time away as you weave your way through the collection of antiques, rustic vintage relics and bohemian beauties, and find inspiration to inject a piece of the past into your contemporary lifestyle. Celebrate the eccentric and the oddball at Hobohemia and unearth something etched with history and character. The quirky space is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm in the lead-up to Christmas.

When good design meets practicality and the handiwork of traditional artisans, innovative products are created. New to Du Monde and Australia, the Hammamas is inspired by traditional Turkish bath towels and each one is individually handmade from 100% premium Turkish cotton on Turkish looms. A versatile summer item that takes on a number of guises, the Hammamas doubles as a sarong, baby wrap, tablecloth, picnic rug or throw. Hammamas quickly absorbs water, is fast drying, surprisingly compact and available in twelve colours – making it a perfect travel towel or Christmas gift.

BODMAN JEWELLERY DESIGN

GOOD CONCEPTS

Discover artistic luxury at Bodman Jewellery Design. Your fine jewellery will be created by an artisan with more than 30 years of experience using diamonds, pearls, and coloured gems. When you are searching for an eternal symbol of love, an expression of your individuality, or a Christmas gift, Bodman Jewellery Design can design something special. Each piece is created using traditional handcrafting methods and cutting-edge CAD design. Whether you are flamboyant and fantastical or more classical, make an appointment to have your dream created your way.

A striking piece of art can provide rare insights into the soul of the artist. In the remote Aboriginal community of Lajamanu in the Northern Territory, art is used as a means to conserve the community’s culture, known as Warlpiri. By creating and selling art, not only does the community benefit from employment opportunities, but pride for the local culture is also fostered. Good Concepts houses a collection of timehonoured artworks from Lajamanu and all proceeds go back to the artist. The artworks join Good Concepts’ range of eco-friendly and fairtrade products, just in time for Christmas.

WISH LIST

ALL THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS YOU ARE WISHING FOR THIS CHRISTMAS ARE HERE IN THIS EXCLUSIVE GUIDE.

NOMIKI GLYNATSIS COUTURE

AUREATE

A sentimental piece of jewellery can evoke wonderful memories and become an irreplaceable symbol of love and joy. Creating couture pieces reminiscent of bygone eras, and delivering the couture experience of meeting and working with the designer, Nomiki Glynatsis Couture jewellery captures the timeless essence of elegance and charm. Each piece starts with the vision of the artisan, which is then executed using Swarovski crystals and pearls, as well as beads, vintage pieces and other materials sourced from all over the globe. Intricate details skilfully woven into the design of each piece will continue to inspire the imagination long after the first glimpse. All jewellery is handmade in Australia and bears the Swarovski Elements authenticity. The designer can also transform vintage jewellery into stunning new pieces. An excusive range of Nomiki Glynatsis Couture is now stocked at The Babushka Ballerina on Ann Street.

When MacGyver spied a paper clip, he saw potential for the humble object beyond the binding of a document. When Ben Breitenstein of Aureate inspects an amplifier, he sees a charming new cabinet. Inspired by the resourcefulness of MacGyver, Ben’s furnishings meld aesthetics with function. The youthful and nostalgic ‘On Tour’ cabinets are made from commercial-grade components that remain faithful to its real amplifier counterparts, while full-lock castors and handles make moving easy. Complementing the cabinets are the minimalist ‘Hung Up’ frames, which turn beloved records into art. A clever mechanism opens the frame, so artwork can be changed, and favourite records listened to. ‘Hung Up’ frames are available at local retailers for Christmas. Visit the website, sign up to the enewsletter, or phone Ben directly for more information.

LANNAH DUNN

MUSICA VIVA

Leave a lasting impression with the Lannah Dunn Monogram ring. Incorporating the world’s most precious metals, the Monogram ring is crafted from sterling silver or solid gold. Using century-old techniques, the molten metal is fashioned into the final masterpiece and, to add a personal touch, your own initials are then engraved onto the central plaque – creating a stunning combination of quality and artistry. A lovely gift for the ladies, and also for the gents. Make this Christmas one to remember with one for her, and one for him. As a Lannah Dunn Monogram ring is given to a loved one in celebration of a special birthday, anniversary or graduation, an heirloom is quietly being created. Sterling-silver rings are available from $89, or choose 9ct rose, yellow or white from $295. Have your initials engraved for $20 per initial.

Give the joy of music to that special someone this Christmas. A 2012 subscription to Musica Viva’s International Concert Season is the ultimate gift, because it keeps giving for a whole year. Concert tickets to Tafelmusik – an audio-visual spectacular, combining space photography, storytelling, and music by Bach, Handel and Vivaldi – would also make for a memorable present. Other stars in the Musica Viva 2012 season include the unmissable Takács Quartet, who will return to show why they are the grand masters of the quartet world, oboe legend Diana Doherty, all-male acappella quintet Amarcord, and Gordon Kerry has been announced as Musica Viva’s featured composer for 2012. Musica Viva subscribers this year will also receive an exclusive pre-sale ticket offer to the Vienna Boys Choir. Gift vouchers and season keepsakes are also available.
