That is Sri Lanka. It is not just a friendly neighbor to India or the Maldives. It stands for itself – for the world-famous Ceylon tea to the all-English Cricket and everything in between. It stands for you, offering itself up to be a significant player in your own personal history. And that is what we’re keen to discover.
Just like for Julia and Paul, maybe a little bit longer, Sri Lanka will be the backdrop for our own starter marriage and the continuation of our love story. We plan to discover Lonely Planet’s (2009) top picks of the country:
- Brilliant Beaches (Kalkuda Bay Beach for one!)
- Hill Country Scenery (Who wants to go up Adam’s Peak?)
- Ecofriendly Sleeps (Kandy Samadhicentre for example.)
- Winning Ways with Wildlife (Turtles, Elephants, Wales and yes, Leopards!)

Plus it’s hot cuisine, rich culture and friendly people. And more.
And in the process, we hope to get to know each other better and ourselves.
Mr. and Mrs. O, Livin La Vida Lanka. Who would have thought?!
