Salut chers amis…!! Bienvenue..!!
I am sure you guys are wondering what have I written. Well, I’m just trying to flaunt a little bit of French here, that’s one thing I have been practicing during this pandemic. Yes, this pandemic has really given us a tough time. Don’t you agree with me? But haven’t we always come across this phase ‘Be Positive’ so just like my blood group I too am trying to B+., lol that’s definitely a PJ.
On a positive note, haven’t we always thought of spending quality time with our family, this virus surely made us close. We have got a chance to work on our hobbies and passions, be it cooking, reading, learning a new language or a musical instrument and many more such things. Also what’s fascinating is we all wish to go back to our respective jobs. What can be more positive than this?
But let’s not forget the most devastating part is when you realize its impact on many of our leading industries and one such is our Travel and Tourism industry. Yes, we all miss this in particular and so wish to get our holidays and business trips to be back in our life. Speaking of travel my write-ups are gonna be based on culture, food, festivals, and all that is related to travel.
As this being my first attempt to write a blog, let’s begin with my first international travel, also my first flight experience, first check in’s, immigrations filled with excitement and anxiety. First trip with my best pals, and guess what we all ended up splurging right from the airport. It was a spontaneous decision to book this trip as it was one of my friend’s birthday and we all thought we are now grown-ups and should party like grown-ups. Hell yeah, it was crazy fun..!!
Let’s give you guys some hints about this place. This place is all about beaches, turtles, elephants, tea plantations, hill stations, Lord Buddhas, and lots more. I am sure you now have understood, yes you read it right I am talking about the island formerly known as Ceylon, currently as Sri Lanka. Well known places to travel in Sri Lanka are Colombo, Kandy, Bentota, Nuwara Eliya, Negombo. The official language of Sri Lanka is Tamil and Sinhala but English is well understood by the natives. It was a relief..!!
As a tourist, we all look for something exciting to do in each country or a new place we visit. Sri Lanka too has things to offer to its tourists. Sri Lanka being a beach destination, it has lots of water sports activities to offer like scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, whale, and dolphin watching. For the animal lovers and kids, there are plenty of zoos, turtle hatcheries, and elephant orphanages that allows you to bath an elephant, have a ride, feed the elephant, and get clicked with the elephant. Isn’t that amazing..!! I simply loved being around the elephants, so much so that I ended up buying a lot of elephant figurines as souvenirs for my family in India.
Sri Lanka is famous for other more kinds of stuff like gems and jewelry, Just like India, Sri Lanka too is famous for spices, Ayurveda products, Ceylon teas. Sri Lankan uses a wooden demon mask as a ritual to avert evil spirits.
Sri Lanka is an exciting destination. It is budget-friendly, kids friendly, and is a good option for honeymooners.
When is the best month to visit Sri Lanka?
In a nutshell, the variations in the weather patterns mean that the best time to visit Sri Lanka is intertwined with where on the island you want to go:
If you’re heading to the west, or south coasts and the hill country, then you’re best off going between December and March.
If you’re intending to make your way to the east coast and the north you’ll find the best time of year to visit Sri Lanka is from April or May to September.
I am ending it here not to make it too lengthy and boring for you all, can’t afford you guys to sleep in my first attempt at this blog.
P.S: We ended up meeting the famous Sri Lankan cricket personality Mr. Sanath Jayasuria.. 🙂 We had our little fan moment at the airport.
Stay tuned… Until then Ciao, Au Revoir, A Bientot..!!!
