Not being able to travel is rough. We get it. There is nothing fun about being stuck at home with no plans for the future.

To help things out, we're publishing a virtual trip series where we share 15 of our favorite photos from a previous trip and share some of the backstories behind the images.

For our seventh entry, we're traveling to Sri Lanka- a country I explored for about five days in 2014!

Virtual Tour of Sri Lanka - 15 of Our Favorite Sri Lanka Photos

Elephants of Kaudulla National Park

The elephant migration in Sri Lanka is an acclaimed event that draws in wildlife photographers from around the world. During the October/November monsoons, hundreds of elephants make their way into Kauldulla National Park where guests can get rather close to them on an organized tour.

To say that there are a ton of elephants in Kaudulla National Park during the migration is an understatement. We saw hundreds in our quick visit, and in this one view you can see several dozen. Now imaging turning in every other direction and seeing the same exact scene. This is the beauty of the migration at Kaudulla National Park!

Polonnaruwa was once a sprawling capital city when it was built in the 10th century that has since fallen into ruin. It is now a popular UNESCO World Heritage site and home to many ruins that are considered one of the best things to do in Sri Lanka.

Finally, I wanted to end this one on a lighthearted note, specifically around a welcome coconut and music we received when arriving to one of our hotels. Certainly an unexpected surprise after a long day of exploring!
