Are these the ultimate travellers?

Noah Strycker is the kind of traveller who likes to meet the locals. But his favourite ‘locals’ are birds, and the people who can help him find them. In 2015, the Oregonian, already a legendary ornithologist and naturalist at 30, smashed a long held ‘Big Year’ world record by observing 6,042 bird species (more than half the world’s total) in 41 countries and seven continents in 365 days. But what makes Strycker different to others who undertake the often-solitary pursuit of bird-watching is that he has resolved to never bird alone. Instead, he taps into social...

The secret behind Iran’s fabled wine

Until the Islamic revolution in 1979, Iran had a tradition of winemaking that stretched back centuries. It centred on the ancient city of Shiraz in central Iran. But is there a connection between Shiraz and the wine of the same name now produced and drunk across the world? This media cannot be played on your device. “I remember my father bringing in the grapes and putting them in big clay vat,” said California-based wine-maker Darioush Khaledi, recalling his childhood in pre-revolutionary Iran. “I would climb on top and smell and enjoy the wine.” Khaledi’s...

The dinosaur hunter of Moab

Lin Ottinger sat on a folding chair behind the counter of his eponymous rock shop in Moab, Utah, a cattle dog to his right, telling a customer about the time he traded a dinosaur bone for six dinosaur eggs with a man from China. “How much for the eggs?” the customer asked, nodding towards a display case. “Not for sale,” Ottinger replied in a raspy voice. “Those are for my personal collection.” The fossilised embryos look like a prop from the set of Game of Thrones, but they fit right in with the Dugway geodes, ammonite fossils and a $2,900 apatosaurus...

The Balkan spirit having a revolution

“Rakia is divine,” said Miloš Škorić. He let that short sentence digest with me for three long seconds, and then looked deep into my eyes and said, ‘divine’. Škorić is the sales and marketing director for Gorda, a high-end rakia maker that has been in his family for centuries and is based in his ancestral village of Velereč in central Serbia. As we sat in Deli 57, a hip restaurant and bar in Belgrade’s Savamala district, with small glasses of Gorda rakia in front of us, Škorić filled me in on what’s afoot with the inebriant...
