In this episode, we start our adventure in Colombo and travel up to Jaffna.
ep 2: Sigiriya
In this episode, we explore the region around Dambulla.
Visiting the famous ancient city of Sigiriya, we climb to the top of Lion Rock and learn a brief history of this interesting place.
I experience my first wildlife safari with Piya Special Jeep Safari where we find a bunch of wild elephants!
We get a unique perspective from the sky in Dambulla thanks to Cinnamon Air and later explore the local town near Amaya Lake Resort.
ep 3: Kandy to nuwara eliya
In this episode, we explore some sacred temples in Kandy and compare two different travel options for getting to Nuwara Eliya.
This train from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya and Ella is a very popular route for travelers, so Pema takes you along on the train and I take you in the van stopping at a few interesting places on the way.
Ep 4: Kitulgala - Negombo - Colombo
In this episode, we leave Nuwara Eliya and stop in Kitulgala for some white water rafting adventures.
We continue our journey to Negombo where our group trip comes to an end.
But even though everyone else is leaving the country, I will stay for another 2 weeks.
Now it's time for me to learn how to drive a tuk-tuk!
ep 5: tuk tuk down south
It's time for some solo travel! I'm renting a tuk tuk and driving myself around Sri Lanka for 2 weeks.
In this episode, I learn how to drive a tuk tuk in Colombo and drive down south to a chill hostel called SURFING WOMBATS
I always recommend the Couchsurfing app for people who want to connect with locals. When I got down south, I messaged a few people on the app asking for recommendations for things to do and I found this guy Laknath who offered to show me a really cool spot called Jungle Beach.
Galle is a city in the south most known for the European influence and an enormous Fort. I explore the area of Galle Fort and share some interesting information about the history and origins.

In this episode, we take a safari in Yala National Park and encounter some wild elephant while driving the tuk tuk.
If you visit Yala National Park, I highly suggest staying at Wild Lotus Villa.
