07 Shitouzhai – A ghost town

Shitouzhai felt like a recreation of an ancient village for tourists that had since been abandoned. The infrastructure to host a thousand tourists was there, but the parking lots were empty. Statues of Buyi women performing tasks associated with Batik textiles lined the river, but there were no Buyi fabrics on display and no women […]

05 Long Horned Miao

It feels like forever that we've been travelling and we still hadn't been rural enough to reach any small villages!! It's been amazing nonetheless - the country is so big, it takes several days and long trips to actually get away from big cities and buildings. Our trip to Longga was convoluted, preempted by another [...]

The little coastal shack we called home

We had decided to settle in Ecuador to concentrate on this budding business idea that was tossed in the air during our travels. We found a little house right by the beach that had nothing but a queen size bed and a cupboard. This was where the magic happened, where the inspiration poured out and where […]

The Abandoned Finca

We had hit the ground running. Empowered with this new surge of inspiration, the endless possibilities of Wolftress was our drive to stay longer and keep searching. Our bank accounts were not looking great and our families that were expecting us to come home kept nagging us; but it was more than our gut that […]

Iluman, the hands behind our seeker hats

We had travelled across South America for some time now and the journey had brought us to wonder what the significance of the hats were for all the locals and indigenous people. From country to country, to villages and towns, the hats that were worn would range from little strange bowler hats worn perched up on […]
