hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Breakfast in Sri Lanka

Breakfast in Sri Lanka

It's only 10:30am and I'm already calling this my happy moment. This is where I want to have my last meal in earth: the breakfast buffet at the Galle Face Hotel in Sri Lanka (if you have to look it up on a map, don't feel bad. I did, too).  

The view is amazing. The climate is tropical. And the food is unending. Anything you could possibly want, and not even know to ask for, they have here.  

We're in this country for five nights, which means we're going to have a really difficult set of scavenges that will probably take us away from this hotel. So for the next half hour, I'm relaxing in my fourth course of food and enjoying the view.  

 

Coconut water, orange juice, water with lemon and mint essence, watermelon juice
