Bandaranaike International Airport
The flying experience was akin to a bullock cart ride and the deafening sound from the engine had our ears " vrooming"! At times, we did talk about the on going Sri Lankan politics and the recent gruesome war - only to be reminded that "Traveler needs no Politics!". Well, we were more excited about what Sri Lanka had in store for us! We arrived at Bandaranaike International Airport (Colombo International Airport) around 2 AM in the morning.Our tour guide and driver for the whole trip, an young chap in his late twenties was waiting for us with a Name Board. Long have i wished for a warm welcome. It was a dream come true and a happy sign indeed! I owe you, Lanka!The tour operator had offered us a van for four ( the vehicle could easily accommodate 7 pax). The air conditioned vehicle was comfy and more than we had anticipated!
