A Bit of Background!
My first ever experience at backpacking back in 1984 was in Sri Lanka, I thought it apt that that’s where I start again! I’ll not go on about how much it has changed, it obviously has, and I don’t want to start conversations with...back in the day.
Sri Lanka is travel made easy. No matter when you go, somewhere on the island will be in season and somewhere not. Places will be crowded and other spots like ghost towns. I am currently in Trincomalee and many restaurants and even hotels are closed until the season starts in April. However, head to Mirissa and it will be a different story. I had an excursion down to the rather stunning Marble Beach which I had pretty much to myself as you can see below
