After Spiti Valley, I thought I would explore Sri Lanka for a month but instead ended up spending nearly a month learning to surf and then surfing my days away on the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka! It was super fun. I remember booking my flights to Sri Lanka because a blog I like mentioned that it had beautiful sunsets! Hehe :)
The next morning, we left for the Mirissa harbour at 6:00 AM. We found our boat and climbed up to the upper deck. There are limited seats but cushions are laid out on the sides and front, so you can sit on the floor too. We sat on the floor by choice. It gave us a better view of the ocean and was quite comfortable too.
