We are happy to see cycle lanes finally introduced to Sri Lanka. Cycling is a super sport - its healthy and its environmentally friendly too! Our Monday holiday plan was to Surf but we slept late so decided to cycle from Mount Lavinia to Mischi's place in Negombo (check out his babies). The cycling itself was really nice, the route via Wattala, Canal Road was pleasant with hardly any traffic all the way to Negombo. Mischi's pool was a blessing to have after a long cycle. After downing a Red Bull and 4 fruit salads at Cargills Negombo we took the easier but deadlier Negombo Road back to Colombo and Mount Lavinia. We'd probably continue this over the next few weeks, when there's no wind, what better thing to do - Cycle!

Conquered, Tangalle with a Kite!

The kite craze just continues in Sri Lanka. After ditching the Hikkaduwa Beach fest to go Kitesurfing, the guys now ditched the Royal Thomian Cricket Match to go kitesurfing in Tangalle. The weekend had added flavour with French Kitesurfer, Leo marvelling the crowd in Tangalle.
Tangalle is a nice, chilled out beach town and the unspoiled beaches of Rakawa are something that stems out of a postcard. Kiting in front of the Kingfisher was a bit tricky with the electricity lines and coconut trees but once that was overcomed, then the real fun began!
Leo, looking forward to having another kite session with you. Aurore, prepare yourself, the lessons (Kiting) are nearer than you think. Morgan and Sophie...the community must admit, we love French Food! (Hint Hint)!
