Discover the South of Sri Lanka by visited:

You can make a stop at the Elephant Transit Home, located near the park, to attend the meal of the pachyderms.

It is said that people from Brittany are travelers, I guess I am no exception! If I went around Europe a bit during my youth, I caught the travel virus, during my first expatriation to Mauritius. When I set foot on the sand, it hit me: I was made for the sun. A second experience followed, Reunion Island for two years, exploring the island from one end to the other on the hiking trails. In 2017, I surprised myself when I stopped with my suitcases in Sri Lanka. Beyond the enchanting landscapes, the country has been an emotional and professional upheaval for me and each day brings its share of surprises and emotions. The friendliness of the Sri Lankans, the time which seems to slow down, the thirst-quenching coconut water and the diversity of landscapes and climates all explain how you can never get tired of this country!
