TRAVELLING TO SRI LANKA IN 2017

We're back!

And holy crap, what a whirlwind of an almost-two-week trip it has been. When John and I planned for a year-end vacation, we were completely in-sync with going to Sri Lanka because we wanted a place that had a little bit of everything, the sea, the mountains and somewhere that both of us haven't been.

While we have vlogs coming, and more in-depth blogs, I'm not going to dedicate more than this post to Colombo and Kandy because we spent literally a heartbeat there. Here's our itinerary for Sri Lanka, in case you need a reference:

DAY 1: Colombo

What to eat: Ministry of Crab for crab, obviously. Galle Face Green for street food, come after dark and with a strong stomach.
Where to stay: Galle Face Hotel

DAY 2: Kandy

We had a car from the hotel take us from Colombo to Kandy for US$95. On hindsight, considering the traffic and the travel expenses, it would have been more economical taking the train.

What to eat: Devon Restaurant - try their devilled dishes!
Where to stay: Air B&B it up!  We stayed here and it was lovely - shitton of mosquitoes, but expect that everywhere!

DAY 9 ONWARDS: MIRISSA

Stay tuned for updates!
