Desired Landscapes is the handcrafted work of Natassa, Greek editor of this mini-format travel magazine. Indescribable magazine that must be opened, read, leafed through and observed for the power it manages to convey in its small and solid format given the over 200 pages in a space that is deliberately reduced.
Now in its second edition, Desired Landscapes is a small intimate travel manual. He wants to tell, and he succeeds very well, the experiences of those who live and travel the cities, focusing in every issue on Athens and then on major international destinations such as Berlin, Tokyo, Los Angeles.
Desired Landscapes, which could one day become the human, emotional and artistic appendage of the Lonely Planet, collects the stories of dozens and dozens of people who tell their artistic, photographic, cultural, architectural point of view on Athens and the other cities that this magazine describes with the heart of travelers.
If you are looking for the hidden corners of Athens, the most authentic Greek traditions and a story of the emotions that travel gives, Desired Landscapes is the right magazine for you. The small size is suitable for plane, ship, ferry, train, car (while not driving). A good travel companion for those who want to travel within the places they visit.

This magazine was born from the urgency to create a vehicle to travel without traveling. As an unfortunate surprise, this became even more relevant during the days of Covid-19. Instead of designing route maps, we now count walking distances to see who we are allowed to see. In this issue we have rethought walking, hotels, online meetings and telepathy. Sometimes, the experience of reading a text about a city can be more enlightening than a real visit. And the image of a city can be more rewarding.
