When I first met my boyfriend he raved about the beautiful beaches his parent’s homeland had to offer and constantly told me how I’d lose my mind over the food. Well…he was correct.
The country is a breathtaking environment bursting with greens, blues and yellows and every meal is followed by sweets (that’s the dream, right?). Compared to areas like Bali and Phuket, Sri Lanka feels untouched and unspoiled. Unfortunately, no one is sure how long this will last as it has been mentioned on every “Top countries to visit NOW” list you can imagine. As sad as this seems, it’s also exciting for the small country, especially since when I told people I was going to Sri Lanka more often than not I would be asked where it was and if it was in India.
