For a small island, Sri Lanka has many nicknames: Serendib, Ceylon, Teardrop of India, Resplendent Isle, Island of Dharma, Pearl of the Orient. This colourful collection reveals its richness and beauty, and the intensity of the affection it evokes in its visitors. The beach thing may be a cliche, but don't miss them. Then head to the hills to cool off amidst tea plantations and ancient cities. The island teems with bird life, and even the occasional elephant or leopard. To top it all off, the people are friendly, the food is delicious and costs are low.

Slopes to Surf   Three months ago, I traded my flannels for board shorts and ventured far from the snowcapped Colorado mountains to the sapphire coastline of Sri Lanka. For many, Sri Lanka remains a palm-speckled mystery that is slowly beginning ... Read more >

We left the hotel around 10 after having breakfast - we each had a thin omelette, a slice of pineapple, a banana and some bread. The bread here is always served stale which is so odd. The roads were really windy again which again made everyone feel ... Read more >

Checking out of the hotel was a blinking nightmare. We went down to do it and no one had any idea how much we had to pay and they didn't speak very good English. We sat waiting for a while and then they called the owner who must have been away for a ... Read more >
