Everything about this country filled my heart up.
For our last train ride on our last night we paid extra for first class tickets to Colombo. Even still, I was absolutely captivated by the towering mountains and lime green tea leaves that for the third time I found myself sitting on the dusty floor with feet dangling out the side of the train, eating cookies and apples, and soaking it all up one last time. When the sun gave its final golden rays three hours later, I stiffly got up and opened the door to our compartment and I was blasted with crispy cold conditioned air against my sticky filthy skin. If anyone was staring at my wind blown cray hair, I didn't notice, for I was completely saturated in the beauty of Sri Lanka once again.
Howling through the dark tunnels with the other locals hanging out of the train, singing worship songs into the breeze, smiling like an idiot around every new majestic corner, waving at every single person, and that one epically perfect high five from the little boy running along the tracks.
Dearest Sri Lanka,
You've won my heart.
a smitten britt.

Гейзерово озеро, Алтай. Оно же "голубое" озеро. И цвет этого водоема действительно удивляет! Фото сделано в нашу осеннюю поездку на Алтай, а уже меньше, чем через две недели мы отправимся туда вновь! 🏔 Это озеро - обязательный пункт нашего маршрута. Хочешь с нами? Пиши в директ☝🏿
