It was so wonderful to hear from you and to know that you have enjoyed your honeymoon abroad so far. I am thrilled to share my own vacation experience with you, since I know you, of all people, love to hear about travelling and unusual places. So, this time Casey and I went to Sri Lanka to a magnificent island with incredible traditions and ravishing nature.
To start with, going to Sri Lanka was never actually part of the plan – our aim was Laos, but my fiancé’s colleague just came back from Sri Lanka and literally talked us into changing our plans. Well, I have to say we are very grateful, since this was, without any exaggeration, the best vacation I have ever had. It was something between Thailand, with its gorgeous culture and Goa, with its perfect beaches, but at the same time, Sri Lanka was so different and unique that I shouldn’t really compare it to anywhere else I’ve been.
The weather was another perfect aspect of our overall great vacation. It isn’t too hot in Sri Lanka this time of the year, just comfortably warm and sunny most of the time, so we could fully enjoy the beach and were also able to travel around the island a bit. The nature in Sri Lanka is just so magical and virgin, it almost made me feel like a Mowgli in the jungle. And, guess what else I saw?! A real tea plantation, just like those we see in Lipton commercials, only far more beautiful. I was also surprised to find out that they only grow black tea on the island, but one of really nice quality. By the way, I’ve got a souvenir tea package waiting for you, so make sure to pick it up when you and John come back from your honeymoon.
Well, babes, I gotta get going. I hope you and John enjoy the rest of your honeymoon just as much as you have enjoyed it so far.
Casey and I will be waiting for both of you to come over for dinner, once you get back from your trip.
Love you, Sis!!
