Leaving the UK in the middle of freezing March to travel to the warmth of Sri Lanka was a delight. We were so struck by the warmth and interest of the people we met, stunned by the history and monuments we saw and bowled over by the scenery and wildlife.
The rock fortress at Sigirya was amazing..... the palace is at the TOP of the rock you see, the climb sheer, not that I climbed wimp that I am!
The spicy food was delicious and the quality of the places we stayed fantastic. The azure blue sea and the elusive leopards made for a brilliant holiday marred only by my being there when mu father died.
