Dubai, shisha

I can’t believe that I have now been travelling for over one week! I have visited 2 very different places; Dubai is an extremely modern place and a show of excessive wealth whilst Sri Lanka is a place with breathtaking scenery but poverty.

I loved Dubai, I would actually live there someday. It’s exotic but refreshingly similar. Sri Lanka is my first experience of a developing country. The people are really friendly though and once I got over the initial chaos I ahve grown to love it’s charming customs.

Overall it still feels like I’m on holiday. It’s hard to believe that I won’t be going home for months and that this is now my life. I have not been that homesick and I have not cried yet. I’m staying in the same guesthouse for a while because it’s cheap (Just over ยฃ5 a night!) and I’m starting to get my bearings. There’s no street signs in Sri Lanka!

I do want to travel around Sri Lanka though. A lot of guest houses are not advertised on the Internet so I will have to be brave and just try to find somewhere to stay when I rock off the train. Easier said than done with a massive backpack to carry!


Before tanning…

Overall I am having anย amazing time. I have had so many incredible experiences and seen many amazing things. It’s lovely not having the stress of having to go work every day too. Each day is my own ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately the hostel does not have many people staying here and the resort is full of couples, mostly Russians believe it or not! I can’t wait to experience the proper backpackers party scene and meet more fellow travellers.

Here’s to many more months of happy travel ๐Ÿ™‚
