So many people have asked us, why Sri Lanka?
Here are a few facts from the Lonely Planet online,

“When the noted writer Sir Arthur C Clarke made his home in Sri Lanka in 1956, he claimed the island jewel of the Indian Ocean was the best place in the world from which to view the universe. … equipped with a stellar combination of scenery, culture and history, a growing focus on sustainable tourism and (hopefully) a more settled society, Sri Lanka is firmly back on the radar for curious travellers seeking unique experiences.” The 25 year civil war is over and our friends, Susan and Don, were in Sri Lanka for a month in Oct 2009 and said the local people are friendly and ready for tourists.
The video of the Duran Duran song, “Save a Prayer,” from the Rio album was filmed in the “jungles, beaches, and temples of Sri Lanka in April, 1982. Scenes were filmed atop the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya, among the ruins of a Buddhist temple at Polonnaruwa and the island’s southern coastline.” We hope to see it all this summer!

We leave Monday June 21, 2010 at 4:45pm from Los Angeles, California for a 15 hour flight to Dubai, UAE arriving at 7:25pm on Tuesday night. The 2:45am flight from Dubai lands Wednesday June 23rd at 8:45am.  Our first night stay will be at Ocean View Guesthouse in Negombo close to the international airport outside of the capital, Columbo, Sri Lanka.  The flight and the hotel are all the plans we have so far….we will keep you posted!
Thanks for reading. Feel free to leave us a comment and remember we said GO TRAVEL!

  1. How wonderful this is, Lisa and George! I can certainly understand why you would choose Sri Lanka and I hope it is everything you expect it to be, and much, much more. Thank you for letting me link up to hear about this latest adventure; may it be the most "bon" of voyages!–Tom Osborne

  2. enjoy every single moment in paradise. while traveling dont forget to self reflect and be open to one anothers perceptions on daily adventures. i know you will both grow from these travels and continue to develope an even stronger bond. laugh often and kiss frequently. we miss you and cannot wait to follow your journies.

  3. Its good to club both sri lanka and maldives as a tour. Both are nice places to spend the holiday.
