We are a family of 5 traveling on a tight budget. Here’s what we thought of the guesthouses we stayed at in Sri Lanka.
People seem to love Sri Lanka. Bloggers, travelers we meet, almost everyone. We, on the other hand, were not big fans.
For all of south and south east Asia our budget is 100 USD per day. In Sri Lanka this was not an easy budget to keep.
Riding the train in Sri Lanka is billed as an essential tourist experience. It not only gets you from one place to another, it also offers views of the ocean and mountains as the train passes down the coast or through the center of the island. Unfortunately, for the most part, our experience riding trains in Sri Lanka was less than pleasant.
We have been traveling now for 9 months. From the time we started traveling until now I could have gestated an entire human being. It turns out traveling is not so unlike pregnancy. They both cause aching backs, sore feet, weird food cravings, and sometimes vomiting. They both inspire amazement, excitement, and anticipation of what is to come next.
And travel, like pregnancy, can make you nostalgic for what life was like before. With pregnancy, it was a flat stomach, sleeping through the night, and not having to pee all of the time. Here are some things I miss from life before travel.
On this trip, we traveled to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Laos. When we finished our travels in the region, we had each family member make a top 15 list (because we had so many great experiences, we couldn’t limit ourselves to just 10).
