Sri Lanka

Backpacking, sun, surf & tuk tuks.

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of honeymooning in Sri Lanka. With the first stint of our trip backpacking between popular tourist spots (Ella, Kandy, Tissa) we managed to soak up some of the Sri Lankan culture and natural beauty this wonderful place had to offer. Climbing Sigiriya (Lion Rock) was a beautiful sight to see, but as lady luck was on our side she made our safari in Yala national park one of the most memorable experiences we have ever had. Our drivers sixth sense stopped us with a front row seat to witness a mother leopard and her two cubs cross the road directly in front of us. Something that I know Lolly and I will never forget! 

The second stage of our trip took us to Soul & Surf where yoga, surf and luxury go hand in hand. We were blessed to have shared the surf camp with wonderful people and welcoming staff that as the week came to a close there were nothing but hugs, kisses and kind words to be said. Without S&S I don't think our trip would have been the same. Thanks guys! 

Here are a few photos from our trip #LankaLife
