Stop. Take pictures – feel less carsick.

Bandarawela – cooler weather, breath taking scenery and that finally-out-of-the-effing-city feeling. The vibes you get from travelling to cooler climates, upcountry are so happy – makes you want to go on walks and hikes and DO THINGS – until asthma and the reality of my lack of fitness kicks in- but it’s a nice feeling.

I didn’t actually take many pictures in Bandarawela as I was only there for one night, but I made many stops on the way to and fro – to take pictures, stretch my legs and feel less carsick

all of the lines and all of the green

I just loved the contrast of the soil and the grass and the road, with the white road signs

This is the kind of view I aspire to wake up to

we stopped by this small cemetery by chance – the scenery  was lovely so we stepped out of the car and stumbled upon this – burial on the hills

why not have black and white windy roads. Also kind of makes me feel more 1900s as opposed to 2017

cosy little road marker, with all the wild flowers and just green-ness to make your soul feel good

look! the weird trees from the earlier post – this time in focus, with a complementary telephone post + wires for accurate representation of the view:P

It’s a rather terrible confession, but as much as I love dramatic, spectacular pictures – with depth of field and brilliant composition, there is a certain charm to the mundane, basic pictures that just kind of say ‘this is what it looks like, and I think it looks pretty’. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that jazz.

I will leave you to the mundane, and go attempt to study.

bye bye.
