I returned from 10 days of backpacking round the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. This trip has been one of the best I've been on yet and I can't wait to share with you exactly what we got up to.
It's important to realise that this trip wasn't just handed to me on a plate. I worked my butt off for this: endured many sleepless nights, working till 3am and experienced more stress and anxiety than I care to admit. Work can be hard but the results are great.
Sri Lanka is home to some delicious food, rich culture and exciting wildlife. One thing I can say for sure is that 10 days just isn't long enough to explore the island! I felt like I only had a fleeting glimpse of what Sri Lanka has to offer.
This series was a lot of fun to put together! I feel like I'm finally starting to find my footing with vlogging and develop a unique style. I know there's still a lot to work on but I love how I'm making progress and more importantly, you guys are enjoying my videos!
Upon completion of my Sri Lanka series, I hit a huge milestone for my channel - 500 subscribers! I literally cannot believe it. It's been a fun 7 months on Youtube and I cannot wait to start producing even better content.
As well as the video series embedded below, I have also written extensively about this trip, including some behind-the-scenes stories and images. Vlogs are harder to capture as when I'm feeling stressed it isn't exactly natural to pick up my camera and film. This is exactly why I love to write written accounts too, to include all those things you don't see: the good and the bad.
I hope you enjoy my Sri Lanka series.
