Soul Fishing’s Tuk Tuk Tips and Tricks

As much as tuk tuks look a bit funny to us Westerners, they are truly the best and the fastest way to get around a big city, like Colombo, Sri Lanka. The problem is not so much about the rickety vehicle, but about the drivers, they might give Westerners a hard time, especially if they are a greedy kind.
After four visits to Sri Lanka, I believe I have gathered enough experience to write a short how-to-guide, hopefully minimalizing your chances of getting swindled as it had happened to me on several occasions.

So, here it goes:


Keeping up with Soul Fishing on Instagram

Those who have been following me on Instagram for the last two weeks know that I've been traveling around Sri Lanka and Singapore. That is also one of the reasons why I have disappeared from the blog for a month.

Teja's New Year Resolutions 2015

The New Year's Eve is around the corner and with it the end of 2014. I have to say I was quite pleased with this year – no major health problems, no scary boyfriends, no clingy attention-seeking friends… yes, 2014 has been good to me.

I have learned a lot this year, and if I compare it to 2009, I truly believe I have grown spiritually, as corny as that sounds. I know more what I want, I have more realistic expectations of myself and what is more important, I know my limits. Seven years ago, this would have been impossible, I had absolutely no idea who I was or what I wanted in life and it was a really scary phase.

This was the reality of my life with recession knocking on my door, with absolutely no guarantee of a happy ending. In real life, you just don’t know what’s coming next and that can be quite stressful.

That is why I have come up with a to-do list that would help me improve the quality of my life in 2015, so here it goes:
