Indian Subcontinent Specialist
Before Jessica came to work at Ampersand in London, she was living in Colombo working in Ampersand’s Sri Lanka office. Living with a local family, she spent a year building strong relationships with our favourite hotels and guides, and learning Sri Lanka’s way of life, customs, culture and language inside out. She even became fluent in Sinhalese! When she returned to London, she became one of Ampersand’s top Sri Lanka specialists.
Jessica has also explored over fifteen of India’s many states, as well as visiting remote and relatively unexplored areas such as Kashmir and Bhutan, whilst staying in some of the best hotels in the world. But Sri Lanka will always feel like her second home. She describes the warmth, hospitality and kindness she experienced as unlike anything she expected to receive. She says “Sri Lanka is a home from home and I really felt part of their family; every evening we would sit around the table for a home cooked meal, which we would take in turns to prepare, sharing stories of our day”. And she is still in touch with them 15 years later!

This mango-shaped Indian Ocean island is a bountiful and spirited nation, overflowing with natural wonders, abundant wildlife, sumptuous cuisine, ancient UNESCO World Heritage sites and a rich cultural legacy – from the cool colonial Tea Country and Cultural Triangle in the country’s interior, to the curvaceous caramel sands on the coast...
