Holi-Holi-Holidaying in Sri Lanka

Life

This week I’m off on holiday to Sri Lanka and I can’t wait. It’s my first holiday to somewhere new since I went to LA and San Diego back in 2009. Whilst I do go to Portugal often, it’s more like going home to me than an actual holiday in a new-found land. Which is exactly what Sri Lanka will be!

I’m going to a couple of different destinations. The first stop will be Kandy (Staying at the Earls Regency Hotel), where I’ll be staying for a couple of nights. After which I’ll be heading down to the coastal town of Beruwela (Staying at the Eden Resort & Spa).

I haven’t got any plans together on what exactly I want to be doing. Think I should make some kind of list. I do know that in the couple of days I’ll be spending in Kandy, I would quite like to see The Temple of the Tooth and the elephant orphanage in Pinnawa.

In Beruwela I’d quite like to do nothing at all but sit by the beach and relax. Though knowing myself I know that won’t be quite enough. I don’t know much about that area. To be honest, I haven’t actually done any research into that area other than BEACH! So I am packing my flippers and snorkel so I can have a float around in the warm Indian Ocean.

I won’t be spending much time in Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, save for 1 night either side of the trip when we first arrive there and on our way back. Hoping I get to see a little bit of the city because I’m there and why not. Jet lag might stop me from doing much when I first arrive there though.

Very excited, can’t wait to see Sri Lanka and what the country is like!
