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.

Nuwara Eliya
Known around Sri Lanka as “Little England”, Nuwara Eliya is the highest city on the island, at around 6128 feet above sea level. Throughout history, this mountainous patch of the country had been almost entirely unpopulated, but the British recognized the potential value of its soil and climate. In 1846, explorer Samuel Barker (who would later “discover” Africa’s Lake Albert) founded Nuwara Eliya, which quickly established itself as a favorite retreat for the ruling class, and eventually gained prominence as a center for tea cultivation….
