This month, Vanichi’s Verge section offers personal travel stories from writer/artist Lindsey Labrum and director/photographer Terrisha Kearse. Lindsey shares her decision to go on a challenging journey through the Andes on horseback. The trip tested her equestrian skills as well as her resilience to work through a devastating loss of a loved one. In fact, this loss catalyzed her trip to the foggy peaks of Ecuador. Read the full story here. Terrisha focuses her lens on a photo essay about her travel to the indigenous village of Embera Quera near Colón, Panama. Reachable only by boat, her camera discovers as much about herself as it does the Embera. Experience more here.
