An island, just as big as the German state Bavaria but as diverse as it would combine several countries: Sri Lanka. Trains and buses will take you from paradisiacal palm beaches through lush green rain forests up on top of the hill country. Here tea plantations and large reservoirs shape the landscape, with mountains peaks outstanding the clouds every now and then. It feels like there is not a single form of landscape you will not find in Sri Lanka.
We spent 5 months in this beautiful country and we still didn’t see everything. There is so much to see and explore and if you look for it, you can find your very own hidden spots!
