Sri lanka from north to south - 15 days, Sri Lanka - Jul 19 - Aug 9, 2019

Traveler: Linda M. - Local specialist: Nathasha Abeyrathne

We are a couple in our 60’s so this trip was going to be quite adventurous for us.
We made a late decision to visit Sri Lanka so to be fair to our specialist Natasha there wasn’t a lot of time for communication.
After the Easter bombing we decided to ignore advice not to go. Security was tight & we could not have felt safer. The people were so welcoming & grateful that we had come!
Our personal driver Loxely had good knowledge, was very calm /reliable & a cautious driver.

Most memorable - Sigiriya Lion Rock, Dambulla Cave Temple, Ella nine arch bridge, Galle Fort, Arugam Bay, Kandy Esala Pera Hera

Least memorable - Travelling far North, Delft Island, 3 safaris (1 is enough)- we saw more wild animals roadside,
Travelled the full length of the country (mostly 70km limit) & return in 22 days.
We probably tried to fit a little too much in so would have liked less temples & more down time esp at the beach.

Best coffee experience - not cheap but worth it!
Hideaway Cafe, Arugam Bay
Espresso Italiano, Sigiriya
