Travel floods your soul with moments and memories that you will forever have, it’s cliché, it’s cony but I’m sure we can all agree, it’s true. From the tea plantations of Sri Lanka to the sandy deserts of India, Asia is a continent in abundance of adventure, culture and spirituality; it’s a continent my partner, James and I love to get lost in. Forget the cocktails by the beach, we lust or the noisy cluttered, unorganised street mayhem of Asia.
We adore all that travel has to offer; the culture, the landscapes, meeting new people but most importantly the food. Whilst roaming Sri Lanka and India our senses were hit with endless flavours, smells and tastes. Yet again, Asia gave us more than we ever excepted, as the culture is one you can't quite explain without experiencing and the cuisine gives you taste buds you never knew existed.
