I went to Sri Lanka on new years eve with a couple of friends and stayed for two weeks. Awesome country with nice people.
Some of the things that I did was to look at elephants with their babies on a Safari in Yala National Park. We took a beginners course in surfing and also went out on a really touristy boat with a crap engine to look at dolphins and BLUE WHALES! Bucket list CHECK!
On the way back home we went past Doha in Qatarfor a one-day stop-over. PHotos of that will come soon.
