Weligama & Hikkaduwa

After Craig and I left Ella, we had no real plan other than going surfing. We decided to head to Weligama where Craig stayed with a local family during his previous trips. It was a brilliant idea, since the family was extremely welcoming and they treated us to some amazing local food. The atmosphere in … More Weligama & Hikkaduwa

Ella

For me, Ella is one of those happy places that when you discover them you know you were meant to arrive there sooner or later. Perhaps the previous sentence sounds a bit vague, but I just felt so at peace and happy there that it’s hard to even describe the feeling. I didn’t have too … More Ella

Adam’s Peak

Feel almost bad saying this, but I couldn’t wait to leave Kandy. It’s not because I didn’t like Kandy, but I just couldn’t wait to get up Adam’s Peak. Whenever I’m going on holiday and have some hiking planned for the part of it, I have very itchy feet until all hiking is out of … More Adam’s Peak

The place had the best view and extremely peaceful surroundings, so I spent a lot of time in this beautiful balcony. Apart from … More Kandy

I arrived quite late, so after I … More Helsinki

Ghent & Brussels

I wish I knew who, when and where planted an idea in my head that I needed to go to Ghent. It had been bothering me for a few years, so in January earlier this year I finally made a weekend trip to Belgium. The flight times were perfect hence on Friday night I found … More Ghent & Brussels
