Hiking through the tea plantations

A travel blog entry by allmytravels


... struggled up the first incline and were rewarded at the top with an amazing view. I swear Sri Lanka may be the most beautiful country I've ever seen. Lush green valleys filled with tea plantations surround you everywhere with patches of mini waterfalls. This was enough to connivence myself to keep going. So up and up we went hiking through ditches , train tracks and narrow cliff roads( thank god a rat didn't jump out or I would have ...

A travel blog entry by oliviajensen

Today was Abbi's 22nd birthday so we treated her to the 5 hour train without seats, through the lush greenery. We got to the station an hour and a half early to ensure we did get seats, eyeing up the Japanese and German competition on the platform, but unfortunately were packed in like sardines much like every method ...
