Arriving in the Big City

SRI LANKA | Tue, 20 Oct 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [306]

The final few days of our trip were spent in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital. In moving around the city, Asanga mentioned several times how much faster and more convenient it was to travel. During the decades-long civil war, Colombo was riddled ... Read more >

In Search of Rubies and Sprats

SRI LANKA | Thu, 8 Oct 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [347]

After our somewhat cloak-and-dagger glimpse into the tea world, it was time to leave Hill Country and head south, to where it’s truly hot. All that time in the mountains I’d thought it was scorching, but I was actually just lukewarm in comparison ... Read more >

Tea-Induced Time Travel

SRI LANKA | Wed, 30 Sep 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [332]

When I sat down to write this, I had a cup of tea next to me. When I sat down to finish it, I had another cup of tea. A third cup will keep me company as I edit the photos. Tea is my ritual, my companion, my main source of caffeine. For some reason, ... Read more >

Where To Get a Great View + Killer Snacks

SRI LANKA | Fri, 11 Sep 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [238]

Our epic, 7-hour train journey from Kandy to Bandarawela took us high into the mountains. I was now in tea. RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. As we pulled in, green mountains dominated the view, and a sign on the outskirts of town welcomed us to “... Read more >

The Tea Train

SRI LANKA | Tue, 1 Sep 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [432]

When a particular country is mentioned, my mind usually thinks of its landscapes. Someone says Bolivia, and I think of salt flats. For Iceland, it’s those mighty waterfalls. Italy is a neatly-laid vineyard. The words ‘Sri Lanka’ have ... Read more >

Unmarried in Kandy (and Other Stories)

SRI LANKA | Tue, 25 Aug 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [344]

Taking Breakfast to the Monks

SRI LANKA | Fri, 14 Aug 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [455]

One morning in Kandy, we woke up very early – so early, the city’s many stray dogs were still sleeping, and the roads were not yet crowded with tuk tuks. We climbed into the van, and held on carefully to the containers of well-wrapped dishes ... Read more >

Challenges & consequences of fresh water

TIMOR-LESTE | Mon, 10 Aug 2015 | By simon_monk | Views [756]

As I stand in a steaming hot shower in my hotel in Dili, washing off the dust and the heat from 12 hours on the road, I’m reminded of all the places I’ve been today that barely have running water. How easily we take water for granted in ... Read more >

Making Sweets. SO MANY SWEETS.

SRI LANKA | Fri, 31 Jul 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [456]

SRI LANKA | Wed, 29 Jul 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [361]

In today’s world, we’re all very accustomed to eating foods that don’t grow where we live. Though I eat as locally as possible, I regularly use olive oil, throw cashews into my salads, and love coconut milk. I also eat chocolate…... Read more >

Day 6: Always Bring a Bathing Suit

ITALY | Fri, 6 Jun 2014 | By writing_the_world | Views [2235]

One of the things I love most about Langhe e Roero is that passionate people power it. Small producers know how to work the land, and do so with love and determination. Anna Adami is one such woman, rising early at her sheep farm, Cascina Raflazz in ... Read more >
