Hayo No. 2: East

Travel, Culture & Curiosity


The stories that are part of this second issue of Hayo, No. 2: East, explore how our expectations compare to reality, and also show how we can be surprised by the close connections we can create in a place we have never experienced before. When we travel, we want to be exposed to new and interesting experiences—but we also look for the things that we can identify with. We hope this issue reminds you of your own east or invites you to discover one.

Hayo No. 1: SouthHayoSouthIssue7


In Hayo No. 1: South we wanted to explore different meanings of the word “south.” We pursued and chose stories that evoke different ways of seeing and feeling south. Flip through its pages, submerge yourself in the different worlds we have brought to you—from Japan to Italy, Turkey to Australia—and get inspired to go and find your own south.
