Last week has been really stressful for me but as I shared it with you guys on Instagram, it ended on a good note with loads of hugs from you guys Popxo fest was the highlight of this month both in a good and bad way(lost my vlog camera)But I think everything happens for a reason and we should be happy with what we have and move on with positive vibes.
So, some of you already know that I went to Sri Lanka for the 45th Miss Intercontinental World Pageant 2016. Hence, get ready for loads of Sri Lanka travel posts. First one being this-
After traveling for 4 hours we landed in Sri Lanka and were greeted by our personal chauffeur. We reached our hotel The Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo pretty late and crashed into bed as soon as we checked in.
We met everyone the next day and then left for Habarana. After lunch, we headed out for safari at Minneriya. We were on these jeeps and trust me the view was amazing, I saw so many elephants together for the first time in my life and I was in my happy place, eeee!!
We were ready to unwind and have some fun at the gala Sri Lanka night which was organized by the cinnamon hotels. After dancing, drinking and partying for few hours we got back to the room so that we could rise early for a busy day ahead.
After a quick breakfast, we went to visit sigiriya rock which is an ancient rock fortress located in Dambulla, Sri Lanka. According to the ancient Sri Lankan chronicles, this site was selected by King Kasyapa for his new capital. He built his palace on top of this rock.
On a small plateau about halfway up the side of this rock, he built a gateway in the form of an enormous lion. The name of this place is derived from this structure —Sīhāgiri, the Lion Rock.
After clicking tons of pictures at our sigiriya adventure, we left for Polonnaruwa which is known as one of the cleanest and more beautiful cities in the country. The green environment, amazing ancient constructions, and attractive tourist hotels and hospitable people attract a lot of tourists.
To wrap up the day CInnamon Hotels organized a sundown cocktail party for everyone.
Hope you guys like this post, stay tuned for rest of the blogs.
