Yala National Park and other favorite places in Sri Lanka is written by Trine Glovemaker.
Sri Lanka is a holiday destination that many Danes are opening their eyes to.
Sri Lanka is still a relatively unspoilt country in terms of tourism and the infrastructure is also still evolving. People travel slowly due to poor road conditions. In the mountains, the trains take off at 5-15 kilometers per hour, so there is plenty of time to photograph the green tea plantations out of the train's open windows.
Until 2009, Sri Lanka was plagued by a 26-year civil war, but today there is peace, and travelers from all over the world travel to Sri Lanka to experience the no less than eight places in UNESCO World Heritage List.
Since I first visited Sri Lanka, I have been overwhelmed by nature and especially by the wildlife that exists in Yala National Park, for example. On my blog, Sri Lanka is the country I have written most about and I have traveled back again and again.
There are so many beautiful places and opportunities for wild, exotic experiences, and although it is hard to choose, here are my 5 favorite places in Sri Lanka.
Web designer and travel blogger, Trine Handskemager's work simply requires a camera, a computer and an internet connection. This allows her to live life as a digital nomad and to work while on the go.
Many of Trine's trips are solo trips that are booked spontaneously a few days before departure. The backpack is packed quickly, because she only travels with hand luggage. Also on the long trips. The family comes along as often as possible when permanent work and education need to be taken care of. The destinations are many, and they may provide experiences that go deeper than a beach holiday.
Sri Lanka has so far become the country she has traveled the most in. It is a country with mountains, rainforest and beaches, culture, nature and wildlife. And then it's a country that keeps surprising. On Trine's blog miss-world.dk has she i.a. a big theme about Sri Lanka and an associated Facebook group, for Danes, Swedes and Norwegians who are going to Sri Lanka on holiday or who are permanent residents down there. But it is certainly not the only country on the blog that is filled with pictures of wildlife, beautiful nature and a lot of palm trees.
