Day 01

We crossed the Indian ocean and landed in the magical island called “Sri Lanka” eagerly waiting to start our long-waited holiday in Asia. We were relieved to see a man with such a pleasant smile waiting to welcome us at the airport who will be our guide and representative during our entire holiday with Ayurva Traveller in Sri Lanka. My sister and I couldn't thank enough for the beautiful welcome gift from Ayurva which was an Organic Travel Kit with essential oils and mosquito repellent which indeed was a perfect gift to begin our holiday.

Our first night in Colombo was arranged at a hotel closer to the airport. It was indeed a great choice as we arrived less than an hour to this beautiful boutique bungalow which had a character of its own with a colonial touch and we were told that it has a long history back from world war 2. Amazing Sri Lanka dinner with home grown vegetables and ingredients was just the beginning of hearty meals in Sri Lanka. The travel specialist at Ayurva had arranged a pampering foot massage for us on arrival which was just what we needed to beat the jet lag and tiredness after a long flight.
