The yearly Lunar New Year holiday in Vietnam has come and gone. Our family traditionally spends this holiday somewhere outside of Vietnam, taking in as much as possible of what this fabulous region has to offer. This year we revisited Sri Lanka. This gorgeous South Asian island nation offers an easily accessible mix of culture, nature and relaxation. This time our trip focused on some of the central and northwestern highlights, such as the city of Kandy, the ancient centre of Theravada Buddhism Anuradhapura, Wilpattu National Park and the beach area near Kalpitiya. Feel free to have a look at the slideshow below, with a random mix of images I made during our trip.
