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. From Jaffna to Galle, from the ruins at Anuradhapura to the elephants of the jungle, we saw just about everything Sri Lanka has to offer… or at least as much as 91 days would allow.

Mahinda found a willing convert in King Tissa, and Sri Lankans quickly embraced their ruler’s new religion. Ever since, the country’s Sinhalese majority has been staunchly, proudly Buddhist….
