During the planning phase of our trip, I used information from the book to help narrow down the places on the island that would be most appropriate for us to visit for the time frame that we had, which was 3 weeks instead of 3 months. Not only are the descriptions quite entertaining (very humorous!), but each chapter has wonderful pictures to accompany the stories. There are also links to their website where you can view additional pictures.
Once we were on the island, I constantly referred to the book in order to refresh my memory about the history or importance of wherever we happened to be that day. My husband also enjoyed being able to get a solid overview of a place, which you will get from this book, without having to spend an entire day doing it.
While they do not offer a lot of recommendations for hotels or restaurants, the ones they do recommend are good. Another benefit of a book such as this one is that you get ideas for those "off the beaten path" places that you might not otherwise see, such as the Kandy Garrison Cemetery, which is well worth a visit.
I look forward to buying another "For 91 Days in..." in the future, and I highly recommend this series.
I'm traveling to Sri Lanka in 11 days, and enjoyed reading this e-book the most of all books I've read for this country. Their experiences were fun to read, and they traveled to all the areas my tour group will be visiting. I appreciated their insight on the culture, people, temples, and history of Sri Lanka.
Since they live in each location, this time Sri Lanka, and call it their home for three months, it's a little more intimate than the usual "where-to-go" and "what-to-do". It's more about the experience of Sri Lanka.
The authors take in people, places, religion, learn Sinhalese, try new food and drink, meet a few monkeys, run away from leeches, hug an elephant. They approach their travels with good humor and some seriousness, so you get some laughs alongside a history lesson. The photos are amazing and tell a story on their own.
They did a great job formatting their stories to ebook, and you can link to their blog posts, YouTube videos, and a few other things.
