Sri Lanka – Final Goodbye’s & Sleeping in Airport’s

So our final meal was back in Colombo at the Coconut Lodge

It was a buffet of more beautiful Sri Lankan foods, curries and rice’s. I believe at this point we were all tired and ready for the trip to come to an end, especially knowing we had a long flight ahead of us that same evening.

We did speech and thanked Martin and his Wife who we had the privilege of leading us through our trip in Kandy and Colombo, Sri Lanka. It definably opened up my love for the subject and job area, and is now firmly what I want to go into as a future career.

Doha Airport

With all this said, eaten, and done we headed back to the Lodge in Colombo once more. Some lucky people in our group had one more day before their flight so they stayed the night, whereas our bus leaving for the airport was at 12am that night.

We relaxed and chilled out at the Lodge on our friend El’s patio reminiscing about the amazing trip we had had and that going home would definitely be a sore subject.

12am rolls around and the same 8 girls we were all together with on the way out we were all on the same flight home. We played uno and cards in the airport before boarding our flight to Doha.

Once we were at Doha all the girls minus myself and Zana left in the airport to do a whistle-stop tour of Doha city. We had a 7 hour layover and I needed to sleep as once we were back in the UK I as driving myself and Mel back to Lincoln from Hertfordshire, so I slept in the airport laydown area, which was quite relaxing!

Thank you so much for following through this HUGE journey through Sri Lanka, Asia. Its only taken me over an entire year to write but the love and memories are strong with this one.

    It’s always bittersweet when you have to say farewell to a place at the end of a lovely trip – but look at it with hope that more special memories will be created by that place in the future. I’m glad it helped you find out what you wanted to do and kickstart a new career path for you. Good luck with that also 🙂

    A trip that encompasses memories of an entire year is an amazing trip! After such a journey, coming home always seems a little bittersweet and leaves you itching to get out there so here is to your next best trip. 🙂


  3. Vacations,especially GREAT vacations are always sad at the end,aren’t they?
    I was pleased to see your Sri Lanka trip was so peaceful considering their past troubled history.
