After arriving in Sri Lanka, we quickly decided to get on a train from Colombo to Kandy. As the train pulled up to the platform, people started to edge forwards making sure they got on first. Even before the train stopped, people were jumping on to the train, through both doors and windows, making sure their seat was secured for the 2 1/2 hr journey.
We of course didn't do this. So with all seats taken, we laid our bags down by the doors of the train and sat on them for the majority of the journey, looking out the open door.
Whilst appreciating the cool air coming through the open door, the view continually got more beautiful; trees, plants, flowers, villages, waterfalls and vast views as we climbed into the cooler atmosphere of Kandy.
This is the start of our #SriLanka #adventure .
