In 2008 Eva Stone moved from the UK to Sri Lanka in the midst of the civil war. All of her family and friends thought she had gone mad and was walking straight into trouble, while Eva thought she'd be blissed out in paradise. The truth lies somewhere between the two. After the first five years of adventures on the island, she decided to write a blog about her experiences. She ran her popular blog, titled “Adventures in a Tuk-Tuk”, offering advice and stories from everyday life, as well as her travels around the island. More than a decade on, Eva has found her second, or maybe even third, wind living on the teardrop island. It hasn't been without its challenges, but Eva's mindset is attuned to staying open-minded, adventurous, being okay with making mistakes and building resilience.
