Next stop: Colombo, Sri Lanka

Basically unpacked and repacked. Grandparents offered to look after the Zoros and since I'm still celebrating my milestone birthday (any excuse to travel is good) we escaped again. This time round we met up with friends (thank you again for all) in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Had never ventured to Sri Lanka, so very excited to explore and discover. Spent our first day traipsing around the city by tuk-tuk, definitely my favorite mode of transportation these days. Wandered around markets, buddhist temples and the coastline. Vesak was going on and everywhere in the streets there were beautiful paper lanterns. Even managed to do a little shopping -if in town definitely don't miss out on the very cool Barefoot. I would also definitely recommend the Park Street Hotel an old colonial home now converted into a boutique hotel, located in the heart of Colombo. From Colombo we headed south but more about that next week. Til then Happy Weekend.
