As a vegetarian, I always find it difficult finding food that I can eat. In some countries this is easy (Sri Lanka) and in others very difficult (I’m looking at you Japan). Generally Europe has a pretty decent selection of vegetarian food but I didn’t know how Vienna would fare. Would I be stuck with risotto and pasta (boooringggg) for the whole trip? Thankfully I wasn’t and some of the places we went to has some of the loveliest vegetarian food I’ve ever eaten.
Autumn is my favourite season. I may have told you all this in previous posts but I think I need to tell you all again: I LOVE AUTUMN. I love it for so many reasons but mainly because of the colours the natural world takes.
A little while ago Sister and I decided to book a last minute holiday. On a Sunday earlier in August we decided to go to the Peak District and a few days later we were in the National Park. We’d planned a holiday full of walking and natural beauty. Thankfully with the weather behaving perfectly that’s exactly what we got.
Colombo – our first and last stop on our Sri Lankan trip and the last of this series of travel diaries sadly! (There will be more very soon…) Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka and the largest city in the country. It’s on the West coast of Sri Lanka and as we were only going there for a day we hadn’t planned much to do. As far as I was concerned Colombo was our chance to recover and relax before getting on a very long flight back to London.
Bentota was our second last stop on our Ski Lankan holiday before we made our way back to Colombo. For this leg of our journey we’d booked ourselves into the stunning Avani Resort which had massive grounds and a beach right outside. But as this is us we weren’t content with staying in the hotel and enjoying everything they had to offer, oh no. We wanted to explore more of what Bentota had to offer, namely water sports.
