2021 Review – Malaysia to Sri Lanka

I started off 2021 at Langkawi in Malaysia. I had been here in Malaysia for about a year and had gone through about three lockdowns.

Pantai Cenang, Langkawi.. Malaysia. January, 2021. This snake was out the back of our guest house, near the tourist rice fields.

I flew to Sri Lanka in March and did two weeks in quarantine. We were able to surf out the front of the hotel, so I started surfing again after about seven years. I spent some time in Galle and Hikkaduwa and then spent most of my time at Weligama. More lockdown.

On the way back down south, I stopped off at Kataragama for a few days and went for a safari to Yala National Park. I ended up back at Weligama where I finished off the year.
