Summer in Sri Lanka and the itinerary we chose

I have one simple conclusion regarding Sri Lanka: Go and visit this beautiful country whose new name actually means “the beautiful island”!

Every summer we organize a longer holiday of around 14-20 days when we tend to run away as far as we can from home. I know there are so many European destinations to visit this time of the year, but we believe now is the time to explore as much as possible.

For summer 2018 we’ve planned to visit Aruba & Curacao because playing with cute pink flamingos is high on my bucketlist, but we had to change our plans on a short notice. Since I’ve previously received a proposal to experience the Maldives on a budget and share my adventure with you, we decided to go for it and added another destination from our wishlist – Sri Lanka (PS: I am going to write all about Maldives on a budget as soon as possible and you are going to love it!)

have one simple conclusion regarding Sri LankaGo and visit this beautiful country whose new name actually means “the beautiful island” (it was previously called Ceylon – yes, the famous “British” tea).

I am going to tell you bellow the itinerary we chose since you have quite a lot to discover and it can be difficult to organize your trip and then I will try to make you fall in love with Sri Lanka by posting 15 pictures that I like the most from our holiday.
In the next few weeks, I will give you details about which accommodation to chose, both luxury and on a budget, as promised, what attractions are mandatory, which means of transportation I recommend, safety information and lots of tips & tricks so you will have the best Sri Lankan adventure.
