On the east coast of Sri Lanka we found a gem of a secret escape. The stunningly beautiful beaches and waterfronts makes you lose track of time in pure admiration. Furthermore, the hotels, swimming pools, beachfront restaurants, palms, coconuts, white sand, hammocks and corals makes you wonder if this actually is for real… We spent a whole week in this paradise after 4 days of thunderstorms in Mumbai. Pure magic and a paradise on earth! Lazy days were spent in the sun, swimming, eating delicious food, relaxing in hammocks and sun beds, playing volleyball and football on the beach, driving water scooters, reading books, taking pictures, writing blog, playing card games, sleeping, talking, laughing, meditating and daydreaming. A wonderful break in our otherwise quite hectic schedule of travelling around the world – wanting to see, explore and understand as much as possible from the different countries, cultures, landscapes, architectures and religions that we possibly can.

I have to admit that my knowledge of Sri Lanka and its history is quite limited. After talking to a couple where she was dutch and he was from Sri Lanka I realized that the most famous tea comes from the mountains in Sri Lanka… And I am ashamed to say I had no idea that this tea was called Ceylon… No wonder – as the name of Sri Lanka before 1972 was Ceylon!!! Oh dear! I wonder how ignorant I can be! After travelling through many countries I realize that Great Britain has had a great influence on most of them – both in terms of culture and language… Sri Lanka has for many years been among the riches countries in Asia because of their tea cultivation and export to the rest of the world. Hopefully we will be able to visit one of the tea plantations before we leave from Sri Lanka.
