surf & yoga & hikkaduwa

We are back to the surf, yoga & breakfast rythm!

In Hikkaduwa we have our own golden triangle. We live at Vibration Hotel were we wake up, we grab our yoga mats and head over to Lyndon next door were we do our morning session, then we head to Vernons coffe shop right across the street were we have our coffe and musli. From Vernons you can access the surf which is right in front. This marks the triangle and you really don’t have to leave it to have an awesome day. Only that these day it’s off season and the surf in front is crap..

Lyndon Mason in Hikkaduwa is the guy that introduced us to yoga and we were so stoked when we met him on the beach on our first morning. It’s the low season in Hikkaduwa so we were pretty much is only yoga students there = private sessions with Lyndon!

After yoga, breakfast at the coffeshop on the other side of the road. They have an amazing home made musli+fruit plate and a totally okey espresso (in sri lanka measure, amazing espresso).

That’s whats friends are for

SO incredible thankful for our friends here in Galle. This first week we’ve been getting a warm welcome from our little expat community. Garrath and Verity took us out our second night here to Closenberg hotels pool bar Lunar Terrace. They introduced us to some people and calmed down our stressed minds.

Catherine and Rasika has been there for us all of our Sri Lankan adventures, since 2011. We were so happy to meet their son Seth for the first time. He’s a real cutie and I can’t wait to spend more time with him. Rasi knows everything you need to know about everything and has been so helpful when it comes to, yes everything! Catherine always sends us to the best tuk tuk drivers and restaurants, she’s also my favorite tailor and I can’t wait to show you the kimonos she has made for the soon to come sunshinestories webshop!

Then there’s Lucy and Will and Caroline who also been great help in this house hunting frenzi we’ve been on. I think we have decided on a house now, will show you when we signed the lease.
