In life we can have ups and downs..... that happened to me last February.... But then I followed one of my friend's advice and immediatly booked a flight ticket........To Sri Lanka !!!! A place I had never thought to visit but one of my friend lives there and proposed me to organize my trip so to change my mind !!!
I had just my flight ticket without knowing anything about the country or the détails of the tour..... I spent 9 wonderful days in paradise !!!!!
I appreciated lot its enriching culture whilie visiting temples, so different from our vision of life.
Nature is just amazing on that island: flowers, trees, éléphants, léopards, lot of birds.... eyes open wide at each and every second !!!! Above during safari and elephant ride !!!!!
I enjoyed their way of cooking, even if you must be careful coz it can be really spicy !!!! Fruits are just one of the finest: bananas, mangos, watermelon....
And last but not least, beaches !!!!!!! relaxing on those marvellous long beaches, snorkeling, whale watching or fishing.....
People are really kind and happy to show their country, I will always remember they are smiling people !
This country offers real complete holidays, not only sunbathing ! I came back much stronger !
If you wanna see pictures or get more informations, you can see on my profile.... I am just preparing now my next trip for February !
So if you need any advice to travel to that little paradise, do not hesitate to leave me a message !

Just 9 days? On such a holiday, most of the cost is getting there. You can stay an extra week for not much money, which is much warmer than back home in February. I trust you will stay longer next time?

Sri Lanka is very beautiful place and have many things to visit as you said from the beaches , wildlife, old temples monuments etc.

I think 9 days would not be enough to travel the best destination in Sri Lanka while you have done, you may have misses some important dsestinations.
