Less than two years ago I was in a uni class, gawping across the room twice a week at @juliahergart . Since then, a tonne has changed, risks were taken, sacrifices made.. all that “whoa life is hard” kind of stuff. But at the end of the day, I trusted my gut instinct and moved across the world to be in the company of a woman who has supported and pushed me in every pursuit I’ve thought of taking on. Nowadays, opportunities have opened up for us that I never would of dreamed of. I don’t normally get so personal on here but I just want to remind you that if you’re in a position where you are trying to make something difficult work relationship-wise.. follow your intuition ❤️ you never know where you could end up... A huge thank you to @ugaescapes for having us and taking me on my first safari 🐘🐆🦌🦔 it was UNREAL
When others from the group were exploring the Buddhist monastery, I was reluctant to enter but still tried However my entry got denied because of my "not so long" pants which probably were offending some religious sentiments. However, I roamed near the locality and drank one cup of coffee & bought one salmon bun from a nearby bakery and saw some group of would be married couples doing their pre-wedding photoshoot in sinhalese attire.
Now for the most exciting part of my trip.. nuwara eliya to Kandy to Colombo by the observation train. That completes all modes of transport as well- self drive, car, bike, bus, plane, boat and now train #8hrsofsightseeing#srilankadiaries#srilankarailways
