29th December 2014 – Unawatuna, Sri Lanka The beach had me in its beautiful bosoms, And I was like a lusting fool, falling for luscious sand. Beyond a crazy hostel that had me getting wasted from the start, The beach had barely begun to play its withheld hand. I checked in last night into the craziest hostel that I have ever been in. Hostel Unawatuna is, literally, the bomb! Last night was a crazy barbecue, from which I woke up today morning to see some sumptuous Srilankan breakfast. And just as it was over, the joints materialised out of nowhere. There […]

28th December 2014 – Colombo, Sri Lanka The national boundaries have dimmed since I am here, And Sri lanka takes me as close to home as it can. From a fort, which was not really a fort, I took another train. And the coast was on my plan. I woke up in the morning, not feeling anything close to a hangover.

This left many of the roadsides […]

Project 365: Day 180 – Catching a train from a fort

whiskey, colombo, srilanka
27th December 2014 – Colombo, Srilanka India has its old monk, and turns out the neighbours had the keg. On my first day in the emerald island, whiskey was my welcome song. The hours crept up into the night, but the country doesn’t stop the party, It raged, raged against the light. Fast, furious, and long. I reached Chennai early in the morning. After getting a little bit of gym at my brother’s house, I finally caught my first international flight for the last 4 months. Oh, the motorbike was lovely, but I missed the aerial pursuits. Reached the Bandaranaike international […]

Project 365: Day 179 – Greeted by an old keg

This was the first post of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here. 1st July 2014 – Singapore From dust we rose and to dust we shall go And dust is […]
