Nuwara Eliya’s Lesser Known Attractions: Galway’s Park And Moon Plains

Roar
Nuwara Eliya needs no introduction. It’s where you run to when Colombo gets too hot and sticky. It’s where you go to, to pretend that you have no urgent deadlines, that global warming is far in the future, and that the sweater you bought on sale a year ago but never really wore, was justified. It’s where you can sit ...

A bowl of sunshine & happy riot – Sweet corn salad

Peckish Me
A bowl of sunshine and happy riot :)I just realized that I have never posted anything on salads.Which is tragic because I love salads! Salads are my go-to meal when I don’t really feel like eating anything else, when I am hungry and need a quick fix or when I am not that hungry but still need to eat something. ...

The Sri Lankan Supper Club @ Peabody Heights Brewery — July 9th

Rice & Curry
It’s been far too long since my last supper club, so I’m doing it again–this time for the hometown crowd of Baltimore–at the Peabody Heights Brewery Tasting Room. Pairing spicy Sri Lankan food with craft beer only makes sense, and Peabody Heights is one of the city’s newest and best breakout breweries, handling the production of over 30 local brews. ...

When In Mirissa: Getting Your Roti Fix

Roar
I love Mirissa. It is a cozy little bay filled with just the right amount of people: neither too crowded to be gauche, nor too empty to be creepy. The waves are high, but the water is shallow enough to wade in a fair bit. You can rent a bodyboard from one of the hotels surrounding the beach and pretend ...

The budget travel guide to Phuket

Icarus Wept
My first introduction to Thailand was Bangkok. We  were met at the airport, whisked into a van and checked into an expensive hotel in Bangkok’s Siam Square, where we stayed for the next two days. I knew what I was going to do and who I was going to do it to. Phuket was a completely different experience. I arrived ...

Esteem (June/July 2016): A Place Called Isso…

Rohitha Perera
Cocooned in Sulaiman Terrace, ISSO, a restaurant dedicated to serving just prawns lays dormant on a rain-filled day. The bright orange facade stands out like a welcome beacon for not just the whole inner road but for my empty stomach that desires some spice. Sadly, I’m not a huge seafood fan. The only seafood I devour would be hot batter-fried ...

Hostels are relatively new to the island and the concept gained popularity only about five years ago. Before that, the YMCA and Salvation Army offered hostel accommodation, until entrepreneur Ranil Samarawickrema decided it was time to launch the ...
