Traveling, both in and out of Sri Lanka, is Amrick’s favorite thing to do. His love for the island spurred his move from working in finance in Australia to returning here to work in the inbound tourism industry.

He hopes to see Sri Lanka achieve this goal and is excited to be able to be a part of that journey to the top!
Rafael de la Torre
When Rafa was a child, he spent each weekend attending judo competitions in Spain and Europe, a passion which eventually took him all the way to Thailand. During this first visit to Asia, Rafa felt a special connection with the people and began to travel the continent in search of secret spots, covering almost 70 countries before he settled in Bangkok to write travel articles for a newspaper based in his hometown of Granada. After a chance meeting with Miguel, Rafa was inspired to visit Sri Lanka and he realized that he had found his place in the world. Now working for SriLankaInStyle as a Travel Consultant, Rafa is happiest when he is trekking in the hills or climbing Adam’s Peak – an awe-inspiring experience he repeats each year.
