    Gorgeous, gorgeous photographs. I’ve been to Sri Lanka a few times and your photos bring back many memories, even if I didn’t capture them on film as beautifully as you did!

    Totally agree! I fell in love with Sri Lanka when I went two years ago and hoping to go back again next year when my sister is volunteering there! Your photos (almost!) do the place justice 😉

    Awesome post! I keep telling my husband that the next place we have to go to is Sri Lanka. It’s so gorgeous but not yet as popular as many others in the area. I love your photos, it really makes me want to go there now!

    I think I am drawn to any place that has amazing food!! Sri Lanka I have been hearing about more and more but never realized what amazing beaches they had! A scenic train ride is the perfect way to get your bearings on a country and see it’s beauty! Your pictures are awesome.

    May I add heritage cities like Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa to this list. I loved both of them, and yes, Dambulla Caves too.

    Your pictures are just beautiful! And to be honest, you’d hooked me with the hikes as soon as I started reading! But the trains look cool as well and any place with friendly locals is a place I’d want to visit 🙂

    I have heard so many great things about Sri Lanka, it looks like such a beautiful country. The hikes and views look great, but I’m not sure I can handle the humidity!

    The green landscapes and clean white sand beaches look amazing. I really love places that make you feel close to nature.

    You are a STUNNING photographer. Your pictures all look professional and gorgeous. I wish I was half as good as you so I could have these beautiful memories of my trips <3

    Your photos are beyond gorgeous! I definitely want to visit Sri Lanka now! I just ate, and the food photos still made my mouth water. As an avid tea drinker, I would also love to visit a tea planation.
