Sri Lanka is a country that had been on my travel list for a long time. I once read a poem about it and instantly fell in love with the description of nature’s beauty. Due to its shape and location, it is often called the ‘Tear of India’, but it definitely is a tear of joy. It is a true bucket list destination and everyone should experience it themselves.
It is a country with incredible beaches on its long coastline and tea plantations in the mountains of the center. Sri Lanka is a country of colors from its classic light blue trains, the tuk tuks, and its colorful sunsets. Furthermore, it is one of the best safari destinations in the world.
In 2019 I finally got to visit this small piece of heaven and despite a rough beginning, I fell in love with the country, its’ food, and people.
There are many incredible things you can do in this small but diverse country. And once you have been there, it is impossible not to love it.
