life is a journey

After a quick scan of my passport and Instagram feed, it dawned on me that this year, I’ve traveled to at least eight countries, each with its own charm. While it was mostly work-related (and consequently physically punishing), it didn’t honestly feel like I was there to shoot, write or attend something. Whatever the overlying circumstances were, I always found a moment to stop, enjoy and fall in love with the moment. As soon as I landed at Keflavik airport in Iceland, I knew I was in a place that is normally left to wild daydreams. Iceland has been listed as one of the places you must visit and is a constant on everyone’s travel bucket list. Gaining a lot of ground in tourism, thanks in part to Hollywood movies such…

letter of the month

Dear MEGA, Upon reading through the pages of MEGA’s October Issue, I remembered how I enjoyed my Morocco trip last year. With a wide range of tours designed to suit each and every taste, my trip to Morocco revealed a new, enticing and alluring world. I’ve wandered through the streets of Marrakesh and Casablanca, visited several mosques, roamed around bazaars and marketplaces that came my way. Other adventures that I also enjoyed while in Morocco were riding on the back of a camel, hiking trips and tasting their one-of-a-kind food offerings that helped me get lost in the country’s vibrant and fascinating culture. I hope your team enjoyed as much as I did! Congratulations, team MEGA!—CYRUS HAZEL DIMAGUING Congratulations Cyrus Hazel! You win a white Flexi Palette from Inglot. Please don’t forget…

nature’s best

This year we close the Making MEGA series with a bang as we showcase the beauty of Iceland: nature in its purest, most sublime form. Where else can you experience the beautiful juxtapositions of greenery and the sea—where lava is pitted against ice? A destination famed for its breathtaking views, Iceland is truly one of the places you must visit. RIGHT AT IT It was on the third day when our cover stars, Daniel and Kathryn finally arrived in Iceland. The #CelebrateMEGAwithKathniel cast was finally complete as we met them in Kirkjubaejarklaustur, where we also shot Daniel for his MEGA Man cover. Only stopping for a quick hot shower, Daniel immediately went out at the Eldhraun lava fields decked out in patchwork tailored pieces in shades of green that beautifully mimicked the…
