In June we decided to do a trip to Sri Lanka - the pearl of the Indian Ocean. Not only to spend our vacation on this splendid island but also to indicate a sign to push up the tourism after the Tsunami hit Sri Lanka on 2004-12-26. Tourism will be one part of the main income not only for coastal regions - also the locals in the central reagions profit from your visit.

We stayed 11 km nothern of Negombo at the Ranweli Holiday Village - The splendor of nature (okay - this is an advertisement but this lovely place is perfect for relaxing and should be mentioned here)! It was the starting point for several trips to gorgeous places on the island: Kandy, Sigiriya, Dambulla, Pinnawala, Matale, Colombo, Negombo, tea plants, many temples and splendid nature were seen. We also enjoyned the kindness of the locals very much - and decided to come back any time...
