Talalla Surf Camp: A Rookie’s Journey To Stokedness By Phillip Krynski This is a story all about how my surfing got flipped turned upside down. No, this isn’t a tale about how I became prince of an affluent Los Angeles neighbourhood. If you’ve never watched ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’, not much will be making sense so far. This is a journey of a surfer who once upon a time was terrified of sharks, but with the help of…

The reason for this is I generally feel good, have a somewhat well-balanced diet and lifestyle and simply enjoy food too much.  The idea of fasting or detoxing feels somewhat unnecessary…

Where Do All Of The Unwell Sri Lankan Street Dogs Go? By Phillip Krynski The pale-blue iron gates fling open and my gaze pans across a sea of puppy dog eyes. The chorus of barking is instantaneous and bellowing. Hundreds of dogs come bounding over to see who the new visitors are. Luxembourgish dog trainer Aimee Frieden and I stand our ground whilst wondering how so many dogs in one place get along and whether in the excitement, they would…

The Best Elephant Safari Adventure In Sri Lanka By Phillip Krynski Fiery beams of sunlight seep through the morning haze, painting a mystical silhouette of the distant mountains. As our van nears Udawalawe National Park, the group gradually rises from a brief nap to witness the eye-capturing scenery. The 119 sq miles in the south of Sri Lanka is an important sanctuary for wild animals displaced by the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir on the Walawe River. Our van arrives…

Not your Typical Wellness Retreat This post originally appeared on The Travel Project on 19 February 2018 Sri Lanka has been the talk of the town lately.

Treat yourself to a recharging getaway on an untouched beach paradise: read on…
