Travel never ceased to make me feel small – just a tiny speck in this vast universe; humbles my being.
We are in Sri Lanka – taking in the sights, sounds, tastes and scents. What an amazing land this is – I never expected a misty drive up to an altitude of 2100km above sea level; just like I have never thought I’d experience a 12 deg celcius temperature accompanied by howling wind. It’s just something I’d never thought of at the mention of Sri Lanka but you know what, thats the beauty of travelling; we learn.
We have been travelling from capital Colombo – up to her central, in the mountainous region of Nuwara Eliya. We stayed in lovely city hotels, historical properties, tea plantation bungalow and going forward, safari hotel and more city hotels.
Just as I recalled, one of the best things about being here – are the people. Sri Lankans are easily one of the loveliest people I’ve encountered; ever smiling, no matter what their (living) condition is. Well, a decade later, they are still the same – ever warm.
We will continue our journey in the morning, heading southwards and I can’t wait to see what awaits. ….there is just so much goodness and too much beauty. I remain humbled.
