What is it about traveling that heightens your senses? Expands your gratitude? Makes you more open to spontaneity, susceptible to being social, awake to what's possible?
I can't quite put my finger on it, but I'm addicted to the journey. I often travel for work, to follow people around shooting photos, and while I'm there I can't help but be completely immersed in the moment. Maybe it's because I don't want to miss a thing ...
One word to sum up my time at CEYLON SLIDERS?
... ICED COFFEE.
... and surf. and food. and more iced coffee. and more surf + food.
I believe that Sri Lanka -- and even further, Maldives -- is the farthest I could possibly travel away from my home base in Hawai'i. Three airplanes and a 3 hour bus ride later we landed at Ceylon Sliders, a quaint boutique hotel with 5 adorable rooms right across the street from the Indian Ocean. From one island to another, I felt very at home being surrounded by the ocean and found comfort in surfing with familiar faces. The team at Ceylon Sliders / Sunshine Stories (a sister company that offers yoga and surf retreats) inspired me in more ways than they'll ever know. Their hospitality was beautiful and they showed us such a wonderful time in Sri Lanka that included mostly food, art, surf, and wild tuk tuk rides!
