Join Lesley in Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) and discover this tiny island nation in the Indian Ocean situated southeast of India.  A cultural melting pot, it is renowned for its ancient cities, Buddhist ruins and temples, with a wonderful and diverse landscape of mountains and forests, wildlife and exotic birds, as well as the rolling hills of tea plantations and small villages of the Central Highlands.  The people are friendly, warm and welcoming!

Sri Lankan art and crafts date back to its Buddhist roots and have evolved over the centuries. Today there is a strong revival of handloom traditions and you will find beautiful contemporary fabrics inspired by the landscape, flora and fauna of this island.  A treat awaits you as we visit artisans and communities at work in their homes and villages… earthenware and clay roof tiles, batik and stitchwork, weaving and dyeing.

From lowland jungles and tropical coastlines to the misty heights of the Hill Country, come and experience the beauty of this emerald island abundant with superb photographic opportunities!

You can additionally extend your travels with a visit to the exotic MALDIVES with its coral atolls and islands, just a plane-hop away.  From all accounts those who did so, absolutely loved it!
