As Sri Lanka continues to be the top rated destination in 2019 for travellers alike then naturally, here at HOC, we want in on a slice of the action too. Whether it’s beach life you’re after or some rural jungle exploring, Sri Lanka really does have it all.

Ever heard of Weligama? Nope neither had we but boy are we glad we kicked 2019 off by ticking it off our travel bucket list. Weligama is the place to be if you want to learn how to surf as an abundance of surf schools line the beach offering cheap rates plus the board hire. If you’re a keen surfer then the waves along this beachy strip should be just what you’re after but they are also great for beginners too. Weligama offers a bit of everything for everyone which includes some very delicious food spots too.

We paid a visit to the oh-so-instagrammable Nomad Cafe & Boutique and it was well worth it. This stylish cafe boasted a chic menu full of smoothie bowls, delicious juices and avo on toast with a twist, all with a strong influences from Bali and London. You can also grab a coffee with coconut milk which is a rarity here in Sri Lanka as most coffees come black and with sugar if you don’t ask for it without! It was home from home in a sense and was a refreshingly healthy escape from the heat.

Visiting other parts of the world should be all about experiencing new sights and taking in the cultures and ways of life of the destination which of course, we love doing here at HOC. But sometimes, a little taste of home doesn’t go a miss and a delicious smoothie bowl enjoyed in a beautiful oasis-like courtyard away from the hustle and bustle was just what we needed!
