The Sri Lanka Travel Guide

Sri Lanka Travel Guide

The first time I visited Sri Lanka was shortly after the end of their brutal civil war. I discovered a complex, stunningly beautiful and intriguing island nation that I fell in love with. Now, with the war long gone Sri Lanka has opened its heart for all to see. Idyllic beaches empty from tourists, hidden jungle Buddhist temples which require a pilgrimage to get to, national parks filled with wild elephants and an ancient culture that is so very addictive. If you’re thinking of heading to South Asia soon, then I can tell you this there is no place on earth like Sri Lanka. Grab a scooter, fill up on a curry spiced with the heat from hell and hit the roads around this simply perfect adventure travel destination! This is Sri Lanka.

Travel Back in Time, a Guide to Havana – Cuba

Havana, Cuba

From the moment I landed and hit the streets of Havana I felt it. I am not sure whether it’s the crumbly colonial architecture seemingly frozen in time, the constant rumba music causing an infectious dance amongst the locals, or simply just the way life seems to slow down and relax. A trip to Havana is a trip back in time, a time where neon 50’s styled everything is the norm, where people still gathered on the streets together to eat and drink without the distraction of the modern world. There is no place like it, Havana Cuba is just as addictive as it is beautiful and during any trip here you will feel the feeling I did as I walked these streets filled with life. The very feeling where you will say to yourself, I will never be the same! Welcome to one of the greatest cities on earth, Havana, Cuba.

How To Become A Travel Influencer And Get Paid To Travel

Travel Influencer

After all those Facebook ads of young travelers living amazing lives traveling the world and seamlessly making money while doing it, you have decided that you also want to have what they have. If it were only that easy, those travelers you see also happen to be incredibly hard-working, marketing masterminds and experts of their trade. Although their lives look lavish and carefree this is hardly the reality, but they do get to travel the world, receive tons of perks, and do in fact get paid to do it. I know this because, after many years of hard work, it’s paid off and I often go on paid trips around the world. It didn’t come easy though, but with dedication and a lot of passion (patience as well), it is a realistic goal that many can achieve.
