We began our adventure on the 21st of May 2016 to the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, often referred to as the “Teardrop of India”. Originally, we had planned to start our trip in India until we reaslised what a missed opportunity it would have been to not explore this little gem first. Sri Lanka’s landscape is diverse and with its close proximity to mountains and beaches it was an ideal place to travel easily by bus or train. People were extremely friendly with us and those who lived by the coast had an especially relaxed way of life. In hindsight we were overjoyed to have visited Sri Lanka first as it eased us gently back in to the world of travelling before the madness of India!
