In 2008, I spent five months backpacking across Sri Lanka and India. As a twenty-year old British man, I had never travelled much further beyond western Europe. I was with a friend, although he doesn’t feature too much in my writing- he probably wrote his own blog about how much of a pain I was to travel with with all my damn scribbling. Email me if you find it.
These are my thoughts, as they were then. I hope they are enjoyable to read but, more importantly, I hope they might help other travellers know what to expect.
