We got back home late last Wednesday from our trip to Sri Lanka.
I had every intention of blogging throughout our trip. The first few days were relaxing at the health resort. Then after the wedding, the following day, we packed everything up and heading on our tour. It was a jam packed, fun filled 8 day excursion around the island of Sri Lanka. We ended up having internet access at every hotel, but by the time we got to the hotel we were plum exhausted. We only had a little energy to Skype the girls and then fall asleep.
We traveled with 13 other people. Most of them were some of Joey’s best friends. And a few were friends of friends we only met on the trip. We all got along really well and had so much fun together. I didn’t know how it would go traveling with other people. I worry about people not getting along and everyone getting tired of each other. But it was not like that at all. I now think traveling with friends is a great idea.
Some of our new friends made a blog just for the trip. So if you are interested in the details and seeing more pictures you can visit them over at LivingtheLankaLoca.wordpress.com
If you are friends with me on facebook then you can see me tagged in my fair share of unflattering sweaty/frizzy haired pictures from the trip.
But some of the highlights from the trip were:
- holding a baby sea turtle
- visiting an island where they made cinnamon
- tea plantations and factory
- the beach/ocean
- train ride in the mountains
- elephant orphanage
- Buddhist temples
- so many monkeys
- snake charmer show and holding a python
- not getting sick once! Joey did, but it was only one night.
I have to show some photos, but I realize seeing someone’s vacation photos can be a drag so I’ll keep it to a minimum.

The trip was so amazing. The flights home, not so much. And we are still suffering from jet lag. But we would totally recommend Sri Lanka!
