Exploring Sri Lanka
Christmas 2019 saw us head East for one of the few occasions to reunite with travelling Christopher who was returning from 4 months travel and we met in the capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo. This is a wonderful country boasting many legacies to the old colonial days when the influence of England was significant. It is best known for its wildlife, tea and gemstones. Deirdre had a great itinerary planned – but it’s a far larger country than you think. We traveled large distances with our trusty guide and driver – Kasun. We planned a mix of safari, trekking, culture, industry and relaxation! Like most of these updates we really rely on a brief photographic record of the holiday – but it’s always hard to do these holidays justice. We may split this into two short updates with a collage of wildlife and scenery and the like. Needless to say we had a wonderful time.
