The road from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya was very scenic as we went up the hills passing through many tea plantations 🍃 The long winding road may be challenging for those with motion sickness though. We brought our car seat with us and luckily Berlin slept through most of the way.
Almost all of the buildings in Nuwara Eliya are built with English style architecture. We felt like we were transported back to England. This area attracts BIG tourism and is considered to be the most important location for tea production in Sri Lanka ☕️ Naturally a visit to a tea factory is definitely a must. We visited Pedro tea factory and joined their 20 minutes guided tour

I know some of my friends follow as they will have babies soon and want to see how I do when I travel. Well sometimes I don't do very well and feel I have to get it out of my chest! I have only been here a day and had few instances in which I felt completely out of control being a tired mum takes its toll. First at all, I have been feeling completely overwhelmed by the high currency, I am good at maths but today I had to think three times before buying anything in case I agree a high price or give the wrong money out... Also Hoi An is a full-on place after only an HR in town I sat for a coffee to breastfeed, I had my perfect arrangement and a lady came to sell something I said not she insisted, I asked how much (big mistake!!) Then I couldn't get rid of her she started telling me her life and that she has a child that I was her first customer and I will bring her bad luck if I didn't buy etc etc... I run out of arguments I was ready to give her money but couldn't agree on how much as I had no idea of the exchange as I said this was less than 1 hr in town, holding Maya trying to feed her... The lady opposite my table went nuts at the seller she said everything I wanted to say but didn't dare, she was being abusive and felt vulnerable specially as I was trying to feed my baby. After that I cried for a while and felt embarrassed about it... Come on I have been in worst situations. Having a baby with you when traveling is great because in here they love babies but somehow they also think you are an easy target... Last but not least I thought I have lost half of the money I exchanged this morning... After lots of worry, I told angry to myself... "How silly you are to have all your money with you" hurray.. I would never do that I remembered then I hide some before leaving the room... Omg!!! If my brain only work the same than before with half sleep!
Sorry for the long post! Good night 😘
Upon our arrival in Colombo 🇱🇰,the city reminds us a lot of our birthplace, Jakarta, Indonesia 🇮🇩 . Both countries were colonized by the Dutch 🇳🇱 so some of the infrastructures are very similar. When doing our research, a lot of people seem to think Colombo is over-rated, and not even worth visiting. Yes it is busy, and yes there were a LOT of construction happening everywhere. But to be honest, we found Colombo to be a good starting point to Sri Lanka.
Our highlight in Colombo was definitely visiting this 5 stars Galle Face Hotel for their afternoon tea. We glamorously arrived in a tuk tuk (which wasn't allowed past the gate) 😂 and we were completely under dressed. But still the staff treated us like royalties here 👑 At only $15 including free top up of tea we thought this was a great bargain 🤑
