Right after we arrived in Colombo, we drove to the elephant orphanage. I mean, what better way to start your holiday than hugging a few tiny (and yet big) baby elephants! :D
The north of Sri Lanka has a lot of beautiful and historical buddhist places to visit. Since we had limited time, we choose to visit Sigiriya. It turned out to be a good choice: thunder and rainstorms were emerging around to us while we climbed the many many steps, took photos of the monkeys and held our breaths to avoid attacks of the giant hornets buzzing around us..Once we were on top of the giant rock, the view was spectacular and well worth the struggle (tip: don’t do this if you’re afraid of heights!). Beautiful!
In Kandy (our hometown for those couple of days), we visited the Temple of the Tooth. Again: interesting and beautiful!
When you live in Dubai, you just need to have a shot of green every once in a while. Frank and I have been working all summer, so we were desperate to see some trees, flowers, animals..Well, fellow Dubai residents, Sri Lanka is the place to be! Even after our short trip we were fully energised and ready to face the desert again! :)
Thank you Sri Lanka, we really hope to see you again!
