An Itinerary in Sri Lanka for the easy going, relaxed traveler

3 months ago, 7 guests were invited to travel with TJD. We created a concept on traveling with strangers, getting to know them, falling in love with a country together and breaking boundaries.

Sri lanka has the nature, the history, the heritage sites and the cuisine. Not only do they have beautiful beaches but it’s the land of peace and smiles. You can never visit Sri Lanka just once. And that is why, our first Travel With TJD was set out in Sri Lanka to be our first mini series.

An Itinerary in Sri Lanka for the easy going, relaxed traveler.

Here is An Itinerary in Sri Lanka

As part of the #NotATourist Campaign with Visa, we will be sharing stories, articles and tips on destinations across the world.

The NotATourist campaign is designed to inspire travel beyond the regular tourist sites to savour truly local experiences that are the essence of making a destination unique. The campaign is there to help travellers explore destinations as local inhabitants – not as tourists – by providing local knowledge using crowd sourced digital content that is showcased on Visa’s NotATourist website and the Visa Explore mobile app. NotATourist also offers travelers a platform to describe the many facets of a destination by sharing their own images, videos, posts and comments, making them ambassadors or tour guides of their favourite travel spots.

To participate in #NotATourist all you need to do is use the hashtag and tag @visamiddleeast for us to find you and we will share your stories and images.

The campaign invites users to share content on social media using the hashtag ‘#NotATourist’ and will give participants a chance to win a weekly prize of US$500 for submitting pictures, videos or tips on how to find ‘secret’ and little-known spots or experiences in key travel destinations. In August, Visa will announce two Ultimate #NotATourist content contributors who will each be awarded a travel package worth US$5000. An Itinerary in Sri Lanka.

    One solid reason to visit Srilanka is “ Srilanka, is a miracle”’. It is a bundle of contradictions.During my last trip to Srilanka we booked a short term rental with https://www.heybnbworld.com and had an awesome time in Srilanka.Whispering Palms Beach Resort is an is an amazing place which will cater to all your needs!

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
  • I have tremendous respect and admiration for people who are authentic and those who always recognize the people who help them during their journey... let’s try not to forget these people. Happy Sunday!
  • A place where I always can’t get enough of. Who would you go to Maldives with?
  • What moon? So here is the sun. ☀️ Can you find it? 
Did you manage to capture the super-blue-blood moon wherever you are?
