Sojourn – Sri Lanka I

What can I say about Sri Lanka that I haven’t said before?! Maybe all I could say is that it was no disappointment…not even for my second time around (and P’s 5th )! If you’ve read my previous travel posts, you know already that we aren’t the “touristy”, sight seeing couple. We like and enjoy dawn, dusk, sand on the beach, sound of the waves, lush greens, walks around the city, souvenir shopping, drinking chilled beer in the Sun as we tan, chatting with the locals and things like that.

Bentota, Sri Lanka and the property we stayed at, shot at the top of our favourites over our first stay, and it stays there after having visited it the second time. For any couple that wants to travel to relax, unwind, spend some quality time with each other, bond and fine-tune with their ‘inner peace’, Bentota is the perfect paradise! Also, Avani Bentota Resort Resort & Spa comes highly, H-I-G-H-L-Y recommended from the both of us. Especially for couples!

Over my next few looks from (& posts of) Sri Lanka, you’ll be able to gather more about the property and the beautiful Bentota Beach that we chose to stay at. Every time we come back from this paradise of a vacation spot, we decide to make another trip the moment we step off the aircraft! Maybe it’s the sheer beauty of the place and it’s people, or the fact that it comes at half the cost of a like-calibre domestic vacation, or maybe we just have some sort of an indescribable connection with it! Whatever it may be, we’re going back soon. Maybe the year after next, or maybe in another 3-4 years, but Sri Lanka sure hasn’t seen the last of us…and we haven’t seen the last of it for sure!

Here are some pictures from our first day (I’ll jot down some quick thoughts and memories underneath some pictures. If that’s the sort of thing you like, make sure to read through as you scroll! <3 )

Balcony + View. You can see Sunset and Beach in the day and hear the Waves splishing splashing all night long. Always look for a cute little balcony at your tropical staycation to air out all the beach+pool wear overnight!
