I went to Sri Lanka in search of inspiration, and I certainly found it. After over a year in North America, I was desperate to explore somewhere more foreign, to learn about a new culture and to really feel out of my depth for a little while. Basically, I wanted to remind myself of the many important reasons why I travel in the first place.
I got all that and more. Sri Lanka was beautiful, occasionally frustrating and just an incredibly interesting place to explore. I loved learning about the country’s unique cuisine, history and ecosystems. I have a lot of stories to tell you in the coming weeks (plus some stories about Hong Kong, and leftover stories from Las Vegas, Austin and Seattle that I still need to get around to- but let’s not dwell on that now.
As an appetizer, here are some of my favorite Instagram shots I took while traveling through Sri Lanka:
BONUS: Here is a video put together by my friends from Captain and Clark (with a cameo from yours truly) that goes a long way towards summing up our experiences in this “humid,” “spicy” and “sun-drenched” country:
