Our trip to Sri Lanka was lovely, rewarding and peaceful. We have been happy and we hope you will get the same feeling when you watch our video. We have collected 30 days in 9 minutes. Hope you like it and give us feedback on it, since its our first video ever. And to our new friends that we met, hope to see you guys soon again! Love. ♥
We had not slept so we were very tired when we got the call from the reception, they told us that it was time to leave and the van was waiting. Our last hours here in Sri Lanka was on the road and on the airport.
It took about 30 minutes to get to the airport with the a/c van on the highway and cost about 3100Rs/153SEK. When we got to the airport we walked a bit, watched some souvenirs and ate sandwiches. Then we check'd in, our flight to Dubai were we had our connection flight was at 02:00AM. We departed from Dubai at 08:30AM and had a nice flight home with Emirates, the view from the plane was amazing.
We almost forgot to tell you about all the souvenirs that we bought, we did buy loads of tea in pretty boxes from Ceylon but also black tea from the family at Laly's Homestay. Since we really love elephants we also bought that, and inscense sticks, a happy golden buddah statue and loads of magnets for our fridge.
This trip have been amazing, we have made many new friends in Sri Lanka and we can't wait to share more amazing photos with all of you! Hope that you have enjoyed our blog and Thanks for all the response we have got during this trip!
We got home to Sweden at 04.00PM. Back to reality, to the cold and snow. We hope to get back to Sri Lanka soon.
In the morning we ate a delicious breakfast at the home of the family we where staying with, a breakfast for two people costs 700rs/34SEK. After the breakfast we changed clothings into beach wear and took our hamocks to our lovely spot at the beach. We layed in the hamocks for a hour watching the kingfishers hunting for food and listening to the waves. Later our neighbour Elias said that there is a big hotel by the beach with a big pool where we can have a bath, since the waves are to high for a swim and currents are to strong.
We walked for 10min on the beach and then we saw this really big place with shiny glas windows all the way up to the top and a really nice and relaxing pool area. First we grabbed something cold to drink and after that we went into the warm pool (heated of the sun). We had lunch and some hours later when the sun was on its way down we went home to Laly's homestay. In the night me and Ioannis had a dinner at the homestay again. Later Ioannis and Elias where talking about going out at the beach bars and after a day by the pool in this heat I where tired, so I went to sleep and the boys where having a great evening.
