Sri Lanka – Through My Lens

banner-sri-lanka-through-my-lens-copyHello, and welcome to another ‘Through My Lens’. Today I feature a series of shots from Sri Lanka, a place I loved visiting and wish I had way more time there. I really only visited Kandy and surrounds (including a day trip to the amazing Sigiriya) as well as a bit of time in Colombo suburbs. My wife and I stayed with a family for a few days after I’d been pick pocketed on the train bound for Galle, where we sadly didn’t make it too.

Nevertheless Sri Lanka was clearly a wonderful place and I hope to return someday – we have in the back of our minds it might be a goer in early 2018. But yes, that’s a LONG way in the future! Hope these pictures inspire you to visit this simply amazing, warm and friendly country!
