After the tranquil East coast beaches and the mythic Ancient cities, it was time to dive into the luscious green paradise of Ella, the wildlife adventures of Uda Walwe and the famous beaches in the South.
From pristine blue beaches to lush green valleys, through mysterious rocks and hidden temples to proud elephants and eager monkeys, the treasures of Sri Lanka are warmly inviting to be discovered. Embracing adventure in all its forms, I spent two truly unforgettable weeks on this magical island.
I have been wanting to make these summer rolls ever since I came back from Bali, which is now nearly 9 months ago! Which is also more than enough time to start missing sunshine, beaches and island life and these fresh healthy coconutty rolls brought a moment of true summer bliss.
Yes, paradise does exist on Earth and it can be as tiny as 15km2. Divide it by 3 and you get three pieces of land in Indonesia that contain the tranquility of quiet beaches, the hippie party vibe, the adventurous water spirit and the splendidness of every sunset that island life has to offer.
It is not hard to fall in love with this 4,500km2 piece of land in South Indonesia. Situated just about 30km east of Bali, Lombok has almost everything that you can find on its famous neighbour – beautiful beaches, lush green jungle, majestic volcanoes, friendly locals and delicious food.
