From 91 Days in Sri Lanka
The 91 days we spent on the island of Sri Lanka were filled with some of the most unforgettable adventures and experiences we’ve ever had. We got up close and personal with the wildlife, learned about the country’s volatile history, met the affable and extremely curious locals, visited ancient Buddhist ruins, and tried to explore every corner of this amazing country.

Peradeniya’s are the most fantastic botanic gardens I’ve ever seen. Trees the size of sky-scrapers, flower bushes exploding in incredible color, giant palm trees that bloom just once in 45 years, and cannon ball trees with heavy round fruits were just some of the highlights. I’ve never been so bowled over by botany….

The Jungle Beach at Galle
After visiting the gleaming white Japanese Peace Pagoda which provided a wonderful view of Galle Fort, we climbed down toward the true destination of our day trip — Jungle Beach. Not another person in sight, just twin stretches of deserted sand trapped between the ocean and Rumassala Rock. Having just experienced the soul-crushing lameness of Unawatuna, this beach was exactly what we needed. Peace, solitude and gorgeous nature….
