We woke up at 8:30, purely for the reason of grabbing the free hostel breakfast before it ended at 9. We ate some toast, bananas, and random Sri Lankan baked goods.

I did a huge loop around the neighborhood for my morning run, ending near the big morning market by the hotel. I went up to the same coffee lady as the day before.

We got our bags together and went downstairs to the lobby to wait for our van to take us to our next destination: Koh Lanta, Thailand. Amanda and I both were struggling; I was bloated, she … More 6/12/18: Reunited With The Germans In Thailand
I woke up for another run. I haven’t really done too many runs twice in a row during my travels, but today I felt like it. I did the same route as yesterday, just a big longer.
