India, Sri Lanka and beyond!

You know how it is…you return from a fabulous holiday and you always mean to sit down and write about how fabulous it all was and then you realise you have been back for nearly 3 weeks and have still not found the time to do it!

So here goes…this post will mostly consist of images that were taken on this trip and over the next couple of weeks I will update with more musings and fabulous highlights from the trip.

It was just over a year ago that we took our first steps into discovering India and fell in love with everything that was on offer.  It is a country of amazing contrasts and whilst our first trip was all about New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur it gave us a taste of things to come.

On our return we began to discuss going back and when we did wanting to explore and experience a different area.  So for this trip we started in Chennai and then headed to Cochi, Pererya and Mumbai, as well as 30 memorable hours on a houseboat slowly making our way through the backwaters near Alleppy.

This was another stunning trip into India and still leaves us with so much more to experience and share.

The second part of the trip was to add on a week to Sri Lanka and to experience this new country and all it had to offer.  Of course a week is not much time and so we limited ourselves to Colombo, Kandy and Galle and it gave us a real test of the beauty, culture and delight of this amazing country. The photographs from Sri Lanka will be posted in my next post!

 

Stay tuned for more to come and in the meantime please enjoy these countries through some of the beautiful photographs that we took on our travels.  I also plan to do another post sharing the amazing food that we once again experienced in both countries.
