I can’t even think of how to begin to describe this holiday! It was the first holiday I took sans Logan (which wasn’t as scary as I thought it might be) with a bunch of high-school friends who are all at different life stages to me. Then there was the added stress of health issues. Unfortunately it wasn’t the trip I imagined which was a whole lot of relaxing doing nothing and sleeping in!
Still aspects of it were amazing! The temples were beautiful:
We got to dress up in saris:
We had some amazing views:
We got to lounge by the pool:
But best of all we got to experience a Sri Lanka wedding and homecoming complete with beautiful outfits and amazing dancers/drummers:
Unfortunately the photos aren’t that great but that’s what happens when I have to rely on facebook. I’m still kicking myself for forgetting my camera!
I’m disappointed that I didn’t organise the trip a bit better as I think I would have had a more enjoyable time in Sri Lanka. Instead being stuck in the two biggest cities and not feeling very well hasn’t left me with fond memories of the country. However, my girlfriends who travelled on a bit longer after we left had a blast at the beach and visiting various sites with our friend and her new in-laws and they can’t wait to return. I’m definitely glad I went though, it was so much fun experiencing a wedding in another culture and I can’t wait to wear a sari again!
