Best Restaurants in Colombo

Colombo offers many different restaurant options, from local cuisine to Western and International, all ranging in price. I always prefer to stick to local cuisine when I visit a country and I recommend this throughout your trip to Sri Lanka. It’s much more affordable and of higher quality. However, if you have some time to kill and enjoy dining out,…

Negombo Fish Market, Sri Lanka

This isn’t always on the top of people’s to-do list when visiting Sri Lanka but I think if you have the time it’s worth a visit the Negombo Fish Market. It’s an hour drive North of Colombo and just 20 mins from the airport, so it makes for an interesting last stop. I say last because, if you make this…

Vegan Macadamia Chocolate Tart with Salted Caramel

I am by no means a vegan or extreme when it comes to my diet but this vegan chocolate tart recipe really is delicious and trust me – you’d never know the tart was dairy, gluten and refined sugar free. I must admit however, that the salted caramel sauce is naughty as all hell! It is NOT vegan whatsoever. But…

struggles of being your own boss

Motivational Mondays

Ah that moment when you open your social media page and someone has posted that clicheΒ “Motivational Mondays” quote. You roll your eyes and quietly vomit off the side of your bed.
