    7 days ago by IvanTheIntrepid And so it begins! Forgive the blasphemous framing that cuts off the crowns of these majestic palms, but that's what you get with a broken camera... Today we headed south to  #Hikkaduwa   #Beach  to catch up with some old chums. Tomorrow we begin our journey north before circling back down to the incredible beaches.  @tuktukrental   #tuktuk   #tuktuksrilanka   #Ivanthetuktukman   #exploresrilanka

    1 week ago by IvanTheIntrepid Pretty stoked on tomorrow for the start of a BIG adventure around  #SriLanka . We've partnered with  @tuktukrental  to hit the open roads with a three-wheeled glorified lawn mower. I can't think of a better way to get off the beaten path than with this iconic vehicle. Be sure to follow my Instagram story for all the behind the scenes action!  #tuktuk   #rickshaw   #threewheeler   #travelsrilanka   #tuktukadventure   #Ivanthetuktukman

    4 days ago by IvanTheIntrepid You won't get here by bus or train. You will only get here by having the opportunity to take the side roads, the back roads and the roads less traveled. You will only get here when you can't find the  #Bhuddist  monastery you were hoping to camp at, so instead you have to knock on doors in the middle of the night. You will only get here if you take chances. We typically only post pictures of the highlights and destinations. They get more likes and fuel envy among our peers. But travel goes far beyond pretty pictures. Pictures like…
  • Dont let his mean mug fool you That cell phonehellip
    2 days ago by IvanTheIntrepid Don't let his 'mean mug' fool you. That cell phone using, tobacco chewing,  #WWE  watching  #monk  is a total sweetheart. We were camped out at his place when he got back from the hospital and he had some people grab us dinner while he made us tea. He then turned on his satellite TV and we all watched  #wrestling  together until the food arrived. It was truly one of those magical experiences. The  #tuktuk  adventures continue.  @tuktukrental  http://tuktukrental.com  #tuktuksrilanka   #monklife   #og   #tuktukdiaries   #srilanka   #Ivanthetuktukman

    6 days ago by IvanTheIntrepid Sometimes you rent a  #tuktuk  and plan to go surfing... And sometimes something kicks you in the stomach and won't let you get out of bed. I always say it is inevitable that you will get sick during a long term  #travel  trip, and, well, it got me. Is this what they mean by  #travelbug ?

    1 day ago by IvanTheIntrepid What is it about falling  #water  that is so appealing to humans? More  #waterfalls  today as we explore  #Ella .  #SriLanka   #tuktukdiaries   #backpacking   #nature 
  • Driving the tuktuk can be frustrating It can be stressfulhellip
    16 hours ago by IvanTheIntrepid Driving the  #tuktuk  can be frustrating. It can be stressful. Roads can get narrow, hills can get steep and other drivers can just be crazy. It's like all things in life. We learn, grow and develop through the challenges and then we celebrate the highs... Every random road, village, monk, camp site and person becomes that much more special. When I say this journey has been incredible... When I say I love  #travel ... It isn't because it is one amazing experience after the other. It's because I am both constantly challenged and constantly rewarded. I need both to feel enriched…
  • You know the food down here is great and allhellip
    3 days ago by IvanTheIntrepid You know the  #food  down here is great and all, but sometimes you just start 'fiending' for something from home. For me, that thing is typically  #peanutbutter ... It is kind of sad that the entirety of my home sickness can be summarized by those two words. What do you miss most when you  #travel ?  #travelfood   #travelfoods   #atasteofhome   #SriLanka

    9 hours ago by IvanTheIntrepid I still can't believe a symbol that was used by peaceful religions for so long was hijacked in such a dramatic way. I always have to check my gut reaction when I see it on temples and sculptures over here.  #swastika   #bhudda
