We had planned this trip last year but due to some reasons it always kept on getting cancelled, So this time with the few people ready for the trip we booked our flights (Rs15000) to Srilanka for the month of February. We were all excited about the trip and all the itinerary and hotels had been booked. That when the news started pouring in that a virus is spreading through China and its infecting a lot of people.

As the day for our trip approached nearer and nearer the news of the virus only started getting severe and we started rethinking about the trip, but as it was still in China and not spread to the other regions like it has spread now, we packed our bags, got a few masks and started with our trip to Srilanka.

Day 1

The first destination was the Colombo where we did our immigration and while heading out, we were also checked using thermal imagery as fever is one of the main symptoms of Corona. As we completed all the formalities we headed out of the airport and arranged for some Cash and Sim Cards.

Once that was done, we caught a bus (Rs150) and headed to the beautiful city of Colombo, where we freshened up at our pre booked hostel and later in the evening headed out for Galle Beach.

So, as we came back to Mumbai, news started coming in that there were cases in Kerala, then the numbers in Europe and USA started increasing and before you knew it a #lockdown was imposed.

But before the lockdown we had visited Srilanka the long pending International trip and experienced everything from cities, to mountains and beaches.

Don’t know when will everything will get back to normal but till then stay home stay safe.
