Trip Report Discovering Paradise: fly to Sri Lanka

Jump to last reply

In life we can have ups and downs..... that happened to me last February.... But then I followed one of my friend's advice and immediatly booked a flight ticket........To Sri Lanka !!!! A place I had never thought to visit but one of my friend lives there and proposed me to organize my trip so to change my mind !!!
I had just my flight ticket without knowing anything about the country or the détails of the tour..... I spent 9 wonderful days in paradise !!!!! I appreciated lot its enriching culture whilie visiting temples, so different from our vision of life. Nature is just amazing on that island: flowers, trees, éléphants, léopards, lot of birds.... eyes open wide at each and every second !!!! Above during safari and elephant ride !!!!!
I enjoyed their way of cooking, even if you must be careful coz it can be really spicy !!!! Fruits are just one of the finest: bananas, mangos, watermelon....
And last but not least, beaches !!!!!!! relaxing on those marvellous long beaches, snorkeling, whale watching or fishing.....
People are really kind and happy to show their country, I will always remember they are smiling people !
This country offers real complete holidays, not only sunbathing !
I came back much stronger and these days I am planning y second trip there coz there are so many things to see !
