Sri lanka - my first time in Asia

So excited that in about a week I will be flying off to Sri Lanka for ten days! I have been planning this trip for about 8 months and I can’t believe it is only a few days away.

A good friend of mine from Sri Lanka is getting married on Nov. 23 and invited me along with a few friends from our time at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. It will be so nice to be reunited with people I haven’t seen in a few years.

My whole trip is pretty much planned out. I booked a tour with a travel agency, Lets Travel, for the days before the wedding. The people at the agency were very nice en helpful at organizing the tour. I was supposed to be alone at first but a few weeks ago two friends decided to join in and the travel agency was great at making that happened.

I will be sharing photos on my Instagram during the trip and more detailed articles on the blog after.

For a taste of what I will be doing here is my itinerary.
