We are now in a small town called Hikkaduwa, and we will be here for the next two months at least (see the map below for our exact location). We also plan to stay in Sri Lanka for the next 6 months.

We have a villa in a very quiet area surrounded by the jungle, and very close to the beach. The Internet connection we have is also excellent and we can provide any advice or support for travelers and especially for digital nomads traveling in the area. So don’t hesitate to contact us for some hints. We can also advice for prices, scooter rentals, lodging, Internet connection here in the area of Hikkaduwa. We already have reliable contacts.
