For photojournalist Alice Martins, conflict is a reason to dig beneath the surface of human struggle and seek truth amidst chaos. Once working out of a hostel in her home country of Brazil and photographing benefit concerts, she made a name for herself covering the emerging surf scene on the Gaza Strip, before merging into war photography, documenting the ongoing civil unrest in Syria. Her work has been featured on a number of esteemed platforms, including the New York Times, Al Jazeera, the New Yorker, Foreign Policy, and the Washington Post – just to name a few.

"The churning mass of living creatures before my eyes made me think twice about my current dining choice." I absolutely draw the line at eating eyeballs and brains, and I am not too fond of tongue either. For these reasons, I really can’t explain my desire to

In Brazilian Portuguese the word “Vagabundo” is not known to be a positive one. The word refers to a person who is homeless, broke, and likely lives and travels aimlessly. However, at Vagabundo Magazine we don’t think being a Vagabundo is such a bad thing. For us, a Vagabundo is someone who doesn’t travel by the same rules as everyone else, doesn’t stick to the main paths provided by the world, and someone who, well, wanders but with a purpose. A Vagabundo knows exactly what they are doing, they know exactly where they are, they simply don’t know where they are going. Vagabundos all over the world push the travel world by exploring new places, rediscovering old places, and blazing paths to the world unknown.

Are you a Vagabundo? Join us in our exploration of the world.

After four days at sea, the leaky wooden boat with no sail crept slowly into the harbour.

Sunburnt, fatigued, and relieved, the small crew had finally arrived in Cape Verde, a small island 570 kilometres off the coast of West Africa. However, the welcoming party was subdued. An ominous crowd silently waited on the docks.
