In some countries (unfortunately also in Sweden) the so called ‘Black Friday’ is getting bigger and bigger... Let’s raise against consumption norms and capitalism. Let’s not be indoctrinated. Let’s be wise, conscious and responsible. Let’s not buy.

A photo from Sri Lanka’s newest and smallest National Park; Galway’s Land National Park in Nuwara Eliya. The admission was pretty expensive for a two kilometres trail... but it was a nice walk and hopefully the money will go to some real conservation work. We spotted a wild buffalo and some birds (a few of them endemic). 🌿🌿🌿

Trying some local cookies in Nuwara Eliya (also called Little England). It’s really interesting spending two days in this little town, which is the biggest destination for domestic tourism in Sri Lanka.
The weather is much cooler here and the town has a beautiful location. The town is full of colonial houses and buildings, there is a famous cricket course and many other reminders of the British days...

Some photos from Nuwara Eliya also called Little England; The beautiful old post office, from the Victoria Park, the tea longe at the old and impressive Grand Hotel, our very turquoise homestay and finally the train station in Nanu Oya. (Nuwara Eliya itself has no train station, but Nanu Oya is just a ten minute drive away).

A few seconds from the slow and magnificent train ride between Ella and Nanu Oya.
Try to find seats on the right side of the train for the best views. 🌿🛤🛤🛤

The train ride between Ella and Nanu Oya (Nuwara Eliya) took about three hours and was amazing!
We bought 2nd class tickets, but chose to sit in 3rd class.
Ps! Try to find seats on the right side for the best views on this route. 💚🛤🛤🛤

A family of monkeys jumped around in the trees around our balcony at least once a day. On our last morning a male got really close and we quickly went inside and closed the door. They can be really curious and are dangerously strong (and their teeth = super sharp...). #monkeybusiness #sereniteella #backpackingsrilanka #ella #srilanka #grownupbackpackers #backpacking #queerbackpackers #gaytravel #queertravel #leztravel #lqbtqtravelers #conscioustravel

Serenite Ella; best accommodation in Ella?
For the first time in 8 weeks of travelling we allowed ourselves a little more luxurious accommodation (though it wasn’t super duper expensive or super fancy).
The first night in Ella we spent in a homestay which was quite different to description on booking.com AND badly smelled of mold... so we checked out and started walking along Kithalella road, hoping to find a decent place with a nice view of Ella gap. And we just stumbled across Serenite! Everything was splendid; the rooms with a private balcony (the place had only four rooms and two more was under construction), the caring and friendly staff, the breakfast and most of all - the view and natural atmosphere! We talked to the owner himself and he told us about his visions about building with respect for the nature (for example by not cutting down trees and instead build around them, planting new trees) During daytime he works as an engineer at a company and Serenite is his private project.
We spent four nights at Serenite and could feel really relaxed and came really close to the nature. Sunrise, visits by monkeys and big birds, nightly nature sounds, starry night sky etc. A very memorable stay. We highly recommend this place!

The Tiruchendur Murugan Temple was devastated by the tsunami leaving only the tilted structure seen in the background. Since then, reconstruction efforts have rehoused the main temple 🌅 You can visit the site at Navalady Road, Kallady, Batticaloa 🌊 This amazing picture was captured by @giacomo__bruno and if you scroll down his feed to images from Sri Lanka you'll see some intriguing and  unusual moments ❤️🙏🏻☺️
