📍Colombo, Sri Lanka
📍Gangaramaya temple

Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka. It was an important port in the trade route. S There is so much to do in Colombo. I wanted to spend my last day in reflection and just have some relaxation time.
We were blessed to be invited by our new Sri Lankan family to spend the day at their beautiful home. We were treated to a magnificent meal and pure hospitality.

Gangaramaya temple is in the heart of Colombo and also a very important place in Sri Lankan Buddhism. This temple is breathtakingly beautiful. I love the quirky collections displayed of myriads of things donated by people to the temple.
I got lost just sitting at the Bodhi tree. What an experience.

Put it on your must visit list of places in Sri Lanka.

📍Arugam Bay, Sri Lanka

This is probably my favourite place in Sri Lanka. The weather was amazing. The town was filled with tourists but that did not make it any less fantastic. Arugam Bay is quirky and authentic. It gas amazing places to shop for gifts and for yourself. It has lots of organic eateries.
We stayed at Bay Vista which was truly a little heaven on earth and met a lot of amazing people here. They offer yoga classes daily and I attended a magical women's circle gathering.

📍Ella, Sri Lanka

Ella is a part of what is referred to as hill country. Ella is filled with tea plantations, waterfalls and beautiful hiking trails.
Unfortunately, this was one of those times that I got lost in the moments and making memories again. We met amazing people and we were also reunited with a friend we met in Dambulla.
Ella is more touristy and if you going during the month of June be prepared for places closing fairly early. This was also the first time I ate kotthu which is a must try. However, I have been advised by different people that they tasted the best kotthu in Colombo.

📍Kandy to Ella train ride

Deemed as one of the most scenic train trides and a must do in Sri Lanka, it did not disappoint.
We sat in third class, mingled with the locals, ate some Sri Lankan snacks. What an amazing experience!

I did not get much footage as I was totally captivated by the scenery. At one point I gave up taking pictures and clips and just sat in silence watching the changing landscapes. Put this on your list of things to do when visiting Sri Lanka.

📍Temple of the tooth, Kandy, Sri Lanka

Coming from the tranquil rural parts of Sri Lanka, Kandy was swarming with the big city vibe. This city has a certain dichotomy about it, the hustle and bustle and then you are overcome my the broadcasted Buddhist prayers that washes over a calmness.
Kandy is a very important place in the Buddhist faith in Sri Lanka.

The legend of the tooth began in 313AD, when it was smuggled into Sri Lanka after being taken from the Buddha as he lay on his funeral pyre. The relic was hidden in the hair of Princess Hemamali as she fled from Hindu armies who were besieging her father’s kindgom in India. It was placed on a gold lotus flower, and enshrined inside a nested jewelled casket fronted by two large elephant tusks.  On special occasions the relic was paraded around the streets of Kandy on the back of an elephant (these animals being sacred to Buddha).
The tooth immediately became an object of immense reverence, and a symbol of power and authority. It was the responsibility of the monarch to safeguard the tooth relic, and it was believed that whoever held it, also held the governance of the country. As a result, over the centuries there were several attempts to capture or destroy it, but these all failed, and the tooth remained safe.

"You cannot fall if you do not climb. But there is no joy in living your whole life on the ground." I have an extreme and irrational fear of heights. I was determined to climb this rock, which I did. As minuscle as it may seem to the average person this was a great victory for me. Reaching the top I knew I was called there. This rock had a palace built on top and is intensely embedded in the Sri Lankan history. It has a magnetism to it. When you reach the top and the wind whispers in your ear, or the sun kisses your skin, when you see the beauty from above, then you find yourself reconciling yourself and being grateful for being a human able to experience such beauty. 📍Sigiriya, Sri Lanka.

📍Dambulla, Sri Lanka

The Golden temple nestled in the heart of Dambulla.
It has a beautiful museum, a radio station and eatery.

We stayed at #Relaxguesthouse in #Dambulla and we had an amazing time. Bob or "Lucky Bob" took us around Dambulla and to Sigiriya in his tuk tuk. He is such a knowledgeable man. We really had an amazing time discovering Dambulla and Sigiriya with him as our guide.

📍Cave Temple, Dambulla, Sri Lanka

I did not truly appreciate this beautiful place until I was reflecting back on the experience.

Sitting on top of a 160-metre high rock, these five caves cut in have been a pilgrim’s destination for centuries.
There are five caves inside, each with a different interior and statues – though many people on a quick glance would assume they are pretty similar.
Each of the five caves varies in purpose, interest and decoration.
