Traveller’s tale: During the days preceding the birthday of Lord Buddha (Vesak/ Buddha Poornima) and after, we saw these huge temporary murals and lanterns all across Sri Lanka. They carried images depicting his life, his teachings and messages of peace.

About We That Travel

Indulging in our memories of journeys far & wide. One caveat: photographic memories and tales to tell are a must. With the song from the Dixie Chicks playing in the background, hit the road! "Hit the highway in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling Lived like a gypsy Six strong hands on the steering wheel I've been a long time gone now Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down But I've always found my way somehow By taking the long way Taking the long way around"
