Hey everyone!! I left Ko Lanta, Thailand on July 31st at 4:20 pm and flew for 1 hour and 20 mins to Bangkok where I arrived at 5:40 pm and had about a 2 hour layover. Then I departed Bangkok at 7:35 and flew for 3 hours and 25 mins and arrived at Colombo Airport near Kandy at 9:30 pm. My flights were with Thai Airways International and it cost me $297. Today my first full day here in Sri Lanka!! I am staying at the Amaya Hills resort which is just outside of Kandy and has the most beautiful views, here are some pictures of it:

So, since i just arrived here yesterday, I haven't had time to do anything yet! But I will be here in Sri Lanka until August 10th, so I have plenty of time to take in all that Kandy has to offer!! So far everything has been great, minus the drive to the hotel.... It was the scariest drive ever!! Since the resort is up in the hills the road was full of twists and turns and I was getting pretty car-sick, not to mention when big buses and things would come flying around the bends, oh man.. I was so relieved once I made it to the resort! I feel weird because usually I have so much to share with you guys that I just ramble on and on, but since I only arrived here in Kandy yesterday I really don't have many things to share! Although, I will tell you what my favourite thing that I've eaten here is! If you ever come to Sri Lanka, you must try the "Hoppers", theyre kind of like sour-dough pancakes that are shaped into like a semi-sphere (i'll post a picture so you understand what I mean) and I had my Hoppers for breakfast this morning so I had eggs in them, but they are also served for dinner with different sides.

Hoppers with eggs!! So delicious!

Okay guys, i'm gonna head out and explore what Kandy has to offer!! This is my final stop on my amazing Dream Trip Around the World and I want to enjoy every last second of it! I will talk to you guys when i'm back home in Mississauga :( Gihilla ennam yaaluwa!! That means "goodbye my friends" in Sri Lankan!
