A mini road-trip

A few pictures of a mini road-trip. This was some months ago. During the Vesak holidays, to be precise. A long weekend was not to be wasted. Packed and excited, we set off, starting off along the Southern highway and.. oh well.

A double rainbow, or whatever this sort of rainbow is called, following bouts of rain on the Southern highway as we headed towards Unawatuna, our first stop.

Passing Tissa Wewa on the second day as we drove pass Hambantota. The city is booming, it goes without saying

Somewhere along the route.

 The Safari, in Tissamahara, offers a tranquil and scenic respite. If you’re stopping by just in time for lunch, why not pop in? The Sri Lankan buffet here was certainly worth it!

The Ravana Falls, the first waterfall to come into view, as we drove towards hills, thinking Bandarawela will make another good stop.
A breakdown in the air-conditioner at this point was to be the only major collapse we were to face, thankfully.

We spent the last two days in Nuwara Eliya.
Still maintaining that old English charm, the Grand Hotel transports us to a forgotten era.
The morning buffet here – at the Grand Hotel – was quite good and reasonably priced.

It was also nice to drive towards the Ambewela Farm. It can be crowded.
