For the last 10 years, I spent my Christmas holidays in Kitzbühel skiing! Last year I decided to go for something different – Surfing in Sri Lanka!
My personal Highlights:
- Landscape: You see images in travel magazines and never really believe, that those dream places really exist! But they do! Sri Lank is a dream!
- People: Although they have hardly anything, they are happy! They are polite and helpful. To me, this was a reminder: What do we really need in life for being happy?
- Food: Nearly everything is spicy and it is similar to the Indian cuisine, but I really liked it!
- Animals: I am really into all kinds of animals. Cows crossing the street, dogs sleeping on your balcony – totally normal in Sri Lanka. My personal highlight was the Safari in Udawalawe Nationalpark! I have never seen so many elephants before!
Why December? The weather and the conditions are perfect!!!
And Surfing ? Well, I guess I am not the next world champion, but I caught some green waves, which was awesome – feels like flying!
If you are planning your holidays for 2017 – Sri Lanka is my personal recommendation! 🙂
