At first we intended to only spend 2-3 weeks in Sri Lanka. However, after 50 days we were still there. I realize now I fell head over heels in love with the raw country, noisey streets, and delicious rice and curries.
I hope these pictures will inspire you to visit this country and meet the people. Sri Lanka is more than just the island off of India. It’s more than just a history of war. It’s a country of tastes, adventure, and dramatic landscapes all jam packed into a tiny island.
Don’t just visit the Westernized sites, but engage with people and learn about the culture. Some of my favorite moments were spent taking polaroids of the children who chased our scooter down dirt roads.
