Then meeting Sampath the cliff jumper from Galle in 2018 has added another fond memory to it! So here I am at Galle again, writing this post as I wait for my other group members to wal...

My Srilanka trip was in June 2016. Sometimes I feel what I can remember about a trip after 4-5 months is actually what the trip was about! I hardly take any notes on my trips. I reconstruct them more through the pictures I click. But I clearly remember the day when I went Dolphin watching and to Pigeon Island in Tri...

When the alarm went off at 4.30 am I groaned, it could not be 4.30 already! However as we were traveling in a group, I got up somehow and stumbled down on time to go to the Kudumbigala Monastery and Kumana National Park near Ampara in Eastern Sri Lanka.

Truth be told I was tired when I arrived at Arugam Bay in eastern Sri Lanka. It took us longer to reach from Digana, where we were staying at the previous night. The route was beautiful. In fact the whole of Sri Lanka, in whichever way I have traveled, is scenic. [caption id="attachment_23400" align="aligncenter"...

It was a 5.00 am start and if you ask me I am no fan of 5.00 am starts. Five in the morning is for being sound asleep but it was not to be because we had plan to catch up the sunrise at Kudumbigala Monastery in Eastern Sri Lanka. We were far away from the monastery when the sunrise happened and yet it was a beautifu...

My eyes popped out as I looked out to the golf course at Victoria Golf and Country Resort at Digana, Sri Lanka. Right there at the course there was a helicopter parked! It generated a lot of curiosity among our group while we had our lunch at Araliya! We were told that some golf club members took a flight from Colom...

I recently flew Delhi-Colombo-Delhi with SriLankan Airlines. I was going to Sri Lanka to attend the TBC Asia 2016 with Cinnamon Hotels. The fun started at the check in. I was given an envelope and there was something in it for me. I had ample time before I was to board the flight, so off I went roaming around T3. ...

I got only a fleeting glimpse, much of it from a moving bus, but it has been an unforgettable journey to Eastern Sri Lanka. I have but briefly touched upon the cities of Batticaloa, Kattankudy and Trinclomalee but the impressions I am going to carry back are lasting. The Grand Old Tree As a tourist I crave...
