Tom Armstrong is one of the founding members of Asia specialist travel company Experience Travel Group, having first fallen in love with Sri Lanka in 1999. He was in the country at the time of the 2004 tsunami, which prompted him to found the Aid Sri Lanka Foundation. His other ventures have included lettuce-farming, beanbag-weaving and setting up The Mudhouse, an eco-resort in the Sri Lankan jungle. These days, he looks after our in-country experience, sourcing partners and trying all new product (i.e. visiting new hotels and sampling new experiences - it's a hard life). Tom is based in Sri Lanka and Thailand, but he is notorious for never staying in one place. Don't even try to keep up with where he is!
