Photo by @amivitale. The Viceroy Special, Sri Lanka's only vintage stream train, prepares to take a chartered tour from Nanu Oya train station, near Nuwara Eliya in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. The train follows the historical 19th century route and for a mere five dollars you can board and travel by train through Sri Lanka's pristine hill country.  Follow me @amivitale for more stories from around the world. @natgeo @natgeocreative@thephotosociety #photooftheday #nanuoya #steamtrain #travelbytrain #asia #everydaysrilanka #photooftheday #photography #topshot #amivitale #srilanka

Super excited to be in Sri Lanka 🇱🇰! We’ve been wanting to make it here for a while. I tend to have a soft spot for small countries living in the shadow of their much larger neighbours. So far this beautiful island has been nothing short of amazing.

'mujhe Andawala Waterfall' . . . This waterfall popped up on the road when we missed a turn on our way back from Elia .

Kottu is essentially the first thing that comes to mind when someone talks about Sri Lankan Street Food. The loud beat that reverberates across the neighbourhood is nostalgic as it was originally chopped and tossed on a hot plate; but times have changed, and most eateries have resorted to making it in a wok instead. We also see variations in the dish trying to make it into a fusion food. What would you prefer? Kottu fusion or the conventional version?

"I learnt this trade from my father, and have been a locksmith here in Pettah for the last 50 years. I couldn't expand this or develop my business because what I made wasn't enough — so I'm content just doing this now.

Living Heritage Koslanda and@it’s surrounds are dotted with tea estates and tea factories which make an interesting visit - learn about the complex method involved in making tea and the multi-stage process (largely unchanged since the day’s of the British) that means you have your daily cuppa. . . . . #SriLanka #koslanda #traveldeeper #roadtrippin #srilankalife #srilankatravel #travelgram #lovewhereyougo #wanderlustsrilanka #travelislife #visitsrilanka #chai #livingheritagekoslanda #ecoresort #meetthelocals #beautifulplaces #teafactory #experientialtravel #specialplaces #lovewhatyoudo #teatrails #ecotravel #natgeotraveller #travelasia #ceylontea #sustainabletourism #everydaysrilanka (📷) @lanesfamilyadventures

Polygonal fort of Jaffna. Here is the quintessential shot of it. It is a fort built by the Portuguese at Jaffna in 1618 . It lost some of its attractions by war but still stands with the expectation that we will protect it.

Don’t be just another travel lemming! @travellemming recently announced Sri Lanka as the winner of the only destination to win their Judges Award AND Reader award as a #1 destination. They suggest that it is one of the trendiest destinations in travel for 2019! In a recent article they write “Lonely Planet recently called it the #1 place to travel in the world for 2019. And we have a hard time arguing with that assessment. For travellers who can't decide between culture, nature, and beach, Sri Lanka makes it easy to avoid the choice altogether. This tropical island packs a lot into a small package: explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the unbelievable ancient Sigiriya rock fortress, go leopard spotting in Yala National Park, or grab your board and head for the surf in Weligama. And with affordable prices and destinations for every time of year, there's really no reason not to add Sri Lanka to your 2019 bucket list.” We couldn’t agree more! 📸 @travellemming

The result of Jesus’ daily fishing trips. This fish, all prepared and dried (picture 2) will be sold in the market tomorrow. I asked about the type of fish, and he said “manta fish,” but I’m not sure I heard correctly / is that a thing? Where all my Sri Lankan fisheries biologists at?? (@cgolden37 this just seems like something you would know!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #srilanka #findthatfish #fish #everydaysrilanka #travel #food #goldenhour #passionpassport #whatsfordinner

Dutch Canal golden hour family hangouts. I called across to ask if I could take their photo and they said yes, shortly before one of the children almost ran into the canal! 😰 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #srilanka #everydaysrilanka #canal #travel #spendlifetraveling #goldenhour #sonyalpha #wanderlust #gameoftones

This is Jesus. I noticed him sitting next to the Dutch Canal and scrambled down the embankment to see what he was doing. He spoke English quite well — he lived in Australia for five years. But Negombo and Sri Lanka, he says, have always been home (apparently too many people get divorced in Australia!). He has one daughter and two sons, the youngest of whom, Emosh, is keen to learn how to drive his boat (see previous, smiley photo!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jesus heads about 30 minutes down the canal six days a week to go fishing. He invited me to go with him one day — a shift that lasts from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m. I’m definitely considering it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #srilanka #everydaysrilanka #fishing #spendlifetraveling #mytinyatlas #travel #makeportraits #goldenhour

Two colours of the same net. Jesus and Marcus kept the net held firm as they did repairs by holding it bunched between their first and second toes. This was similar of all the fishermen I met this evening. Swipe 👉🏽 for close-up photos of the repairing process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #srilanka #fishing #net #exploremore #everydaysrilanka #travel #wanderlust #livelihoods #spendlifetraveling

This is Marcus (unsure of spelling here). He and his friend Jesus were sitting along the Dutch Canal repairing fishing net. It’s meticulous, time-consuming work, but Jesus’ son, Emosh, cracked a few jokes and we all couldn’t help but laugh. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #srilanka #everydaysrilanka #wanderlust #makeportraits #travel #passionpassport #spendlifetraveling #gameoftones #mytinyatlas
