Travel Lust List #2: Sri Lanka


From my previous Travel Lust List post, I talked about how I wanted to discover the infamous country of France. This time, I am going to talk about Sri Lanka. You might think it is odd for me to be wanting to visit this country, but believe me, Sri Lanka offers more than what you can think of in terms of sceneries, history, and culture. Being an underrated tourist destination, Sri Lanka is boasting with picturesque ruins, abundant wildlife, majestic beaches, tall waves, and lush greeneries.

I am a person who loves the sight of the sea but afraid to go in it. I just love taking photographs of the waves and the blue waters that is why I adore going to beaches even if I am not going swimming. Sri Lanka has one of the clearest sea waters in the world, it being near Maldives.

Another thing that draws me to this country is its lush forests. For me, forests offer a different kind of relaxation and tranquility that I rarely experience when I am in the city. These kinds of sceneries make me feel that I am really away from the hustle and bustle of city life. From what I have also researched, Sri Lanka is boasting with a vast range of wildlife animals. Just be careful not to go face to face with them, it is still a little bit dangerous. *wink*

Food is also one thing that is very distinct in Sri Lanka. The choices range from the traditional options down to the most exotic ones. Also, the reason why I would love to visit Sri Lanka is to have a sip of an authentic Ceylon tea, from which they are famous for. I am a tea person and it is my goal to taste if not all, most teas in the world.

I would also like to indulge and immerse myself in their history, as I have always heard that they are overflowing with stories that dates back to the olden times. I always wonder how beautiful it might be to know the history of the different countries in the world apart from my own.

With all the beautiful sceneries Sri Lanka has to offer, it is a good thing that there are a ton of guides and tour packages available over the web so that I can prepare my itinerary if ever I have decided to finally go to Sri Lanka!
