Hello. I’m Upeksha, a thirty-something engineering professional, born and raised in Sri Lanka. I moved to Birmingham, UK when I was 16 years old and have been living here ever since.
I love visiting new places, sight-seeing and taking lots of (not very good) photos. With a full-time job, my travel is limited to holiday and weekends, so I try to make the most of every opportunity.
I started this blog to keep a record of my past and future travels, but also to share some hints and tips I’ve picked up along the way. I travel as far and as widely as my budget and time would allow, but I also try to share some local knowledge about Birmingham and Sri Lanka as well.
If you have any comments or questions, I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment or drop me a line at: contact.diaryofatourist(at)gmail.com. You can also subscribe to the blog, which means you’ll never miss a post. You can also keep in touch with me via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
Thank you for visiting, and happy reading!
