Backpacking Sri Lanka: The Best 4 Cities to Visit

Sri Lanka is never a country we imagined ourselves visiting, but somehow we found ourselves making plans to go to a place we knew nothing about. When we got there we found a beautiful country that truly caters to backpackers and tourists. From street food to beautiful temples to daily hiking trails, we were blown away by what the country had to offer us.
