Sri Lanka is one hell of a beautiful island. From scenic train journeys through lush tea plantations to monkey-filled jungles and white-sand beaches, this country has it all. After spending just a few weeks in India’s teardrop we were itching to return and explore more of its treasures. Here are some stories from our introduction to this paradisical island, where we took a two-week journey, starting from Colombo to Dambulla where we stayed in a jungle hideaway and explored cave temples. Next up, we took an elephant safari at Kaudulla National Park and moved on to Kandy, Sri Lanka’s second-largest city. From there, we took the famous train journey to the mountain town of Ella for some hiking and incredible view points.
