Your best travel journeys will always be last minute plans, ideas you came up with on a drunken night with close friends. Our trip to Sri Lanka was the sum of one such discussion. My closest pal has two kids, both could give the devils in Sri Lankan history a run for their money. It was going to be an extended long weekend, thanks to the public holiday and the weekend combined, we said let’s see a place we’ve never seen before. Always a good choice.
We decided to fly out of Chennai, for it’s proximity to island country. I love the idea of new experiences, it’s the thrill i feel that makes me immensely happy. For this one it started with flying from Chennai to Lanka on a much smaller plane, a kind of a Cessna but I think I have that wrong. The view mid-air is simply stunning, all that blue just makes you want to dive right in. It’s that moment when you also start to think about your first sky dive, moments of immense courage like I call them.
