Looking at a magazine from Jan 2017 ,I had see a beautiful lighthouse which I thought must be in Greece but to my surprise it turned out to be from Sri Lanka. I had my heart set on coming to Sri Lanka. It has been 1.6 year that I have joined my first job. By beginning of 2018 I started planning a trip to Sri Lanka, this trip is a gift to my parents who would be celebrating 25th anniversary soon. We started our journey from Hyderabad by taking the direct flight operated by Sri Lankan airlines (10:10am flight). It takes 2 hours to reach Colombo where our driver from Aaliya was waiting for us,Shamin aya will be with us for next 9 days.
From Colombo to Bentota is a 3 hour journey which we kicked with huge yellow coconut water. The drive was very smooth, the roads are beautiful and lush green on the sides. After 3 hours we reached our hotel the Palm Beach Hotel. The deluxe room will cost you 48 dollar for 3 people. The bathroom is Western and kinda spacious. The room is big too attached with s nice balcony which had two wooden chair you to let your inner panda come out and just chill there.
After changing into something more comfortable we headed to the beach, a two min walk to beach. Not kidding it's really 2 mins away!
On reaching the beach I was surprised with how Sri Lanka is humid free? Didn't give it much thought though will read about it after writing for this. We walked along the shoreline while few people tried to drown their dog. My mom went over to them and told them their dog will die if they don't stop pushing the pup in water. She was smiling I guess she still thinks my mum was just taking to her. Mum had to scoop out the puppy from water. After my mum was at peace we resumed playing in the waves. With sand in my hair I left the beach.
