This is Kyoko from Sakura Hostel Asakusa :)
I took some holidays last week and visited Sri Lanka with my friend.
Have you every heard anything about this country?
It was first time to visit Sri Lanka for me.
The reason why I chose Sri Lanka to visit is that some of my friends who had visited there recommended me for my next trip.
And also one Sri Lankan?lady who stayed with us in February was very nice to us, so I decided to visit there :)
Mrs. Talawati from Sri Lanka & Our manager Tomo!
On the first day, we visited Pinnawala Elephant Village for Elephant ride.
Elephant named Chita took us for a stroll around the village for 30min.
It was FUN, but a bit scary because she is so big and the ride was bumpy!
Our second activity was visiting Geragama Tea Factory.
Sri Lanka is one of the most famous country for tea making.
We have learnt lots of thing which we didn't know about tea.
We tasted a cup of tea after the tour in the factory.
The taste was so rich and nice!
On next day, we visited Ranweli-99 Spice Garden.
This country is also famous for Ayurvedic Treatment.
The way of making medicine of Ayurveda has been succeeded by a doctor into a disciple secretly.
So, even people who is working in the garden, nobody knows the process except doctors.
We received massage for a short time using special oil and balm made with spices of Sri Lanka.
It was so great experience!!
And what we cannot miss if we go to Sri Lanka is....
In the ancient time, the king of this nation built a palace on the top of this rock.
There are many historical remanis of the period.
You can go up to the top by mounting 1,200 steps :O!!
I did it, and became so tired Xp
Through this trip just for 4 days, I had experienced and learnt lots of things.
I definitely recommend YOU to visit Sri Lanka once in your life :)
See you next time!
