Sudipta Chowdhury

I boarded the bus from Unawatuna to Colombo which was around 3 hours journey. I had booked the hostel at Galle Face in Colombo which seemed to be a bit up beat place. There was a concert organized for the night at the beach by Udit Narayan.
4.Get the morning train to Galle which comes from Colombo. You can stay here for relaxing at Jungle beach or can get back to Bentota after sightseeing Galle fort in evening. I preferred to return to Bentota as I am more interested in sightseeing than relaxing.
Nuwara Eliya
Finally we reached "Nuwara Eliya". Nuwara Eliya resembles an old English town, complete with a lake, race track, well kept lawns with hedges, an Anglican Church and an 18 hole golf course. We were pleased with the view from our hotel "Heaven Seven". Enjoyed the weather most.
Day 3 we started with morning breakfast from Hotel itself. We had a small tour around Nuwara Eliya city. As this was our last destination, so we preferred to go Negambo beach, which was round 170 km away from Nuwara Eliya. On the way we tried Avocado which they were serving with Honey. Honey which again made from Kithul tree. Trust me , it was just awesome. We again stopped Kandy for lunch. Kandy basically famous for gems. Sampath took us to one place where they showed us how Gems are being processed.
My injury had made me weak and to some extent killed my enthusiasm. I woke up a bit late. I was running short of cash. So, I walked around few ATMs and finally found the right one. It was the Commerical Bank ATM that read international cards. Anuradhapura was different from all cities/towns I visited in Sri Lanka. Everything was pretty scattered here. So, I took a tuk-tuk and asked the driver to take me around the city.
It was a long tiring journey. And, there was no one in the train compartment in which I was travelling, therefore it turned monotonous too. It took good 8 hours or more to reach Colombo from Jaffna.

About Sigiriya

We were flying from Oman. Our flight was via Dubai to Sri Lanka. We reached SL airport on 22-May-2017, 8 am. As we already had the ETA, immigration process was quite simple and fast. Took a local sim which costed me 9 $. Outside of Airport Sampath was waiting for us with a placard. Sampath had been assigned as our tour guide from tourist agent we opted for. He could speak manageable English which we were quite fine with it. We started our journey towards Sigiriya which was almost 180 Km away from Airport. We were enjoying the beauty of SL, it was raining that day. Sigiriya is Historical place and famous for wild Safari life as well. We tried some cuisine in lunch. After reaching there, first place we went to "Minneriya National Park" for Jangal Safari (Wild Life Safari). Hired a Jeep for 2 hrs for 90$, which initially they asked 100 $. It was a adventurous experiences all together for us.
