Green table-clothed gem in Sri Lanka

A backlog of travel tales. I’ve finally found some time to write, recollect memories and relish in the folders of vibrant photographic images that was captured during our one and half week visit to Sri Lanka. And so the stories unfold… All packed and set to leave, we bolted straight out of the door and […]

All in a day’s work
