I’ve just got back from travelling around Sri Lanka – what a lovely island to explore! The country is gifted with a rich history, a biodiverse ecosystem, lots of protected areas, stunning mountain roads, delicious food, warm beaches and very friendly people.
This film takes you to our experiences of Jaffna, Anuradhapura, Dambulla, Sigiriya Rock, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Yala National Park, Mirissa and Galle.
LOGISTICS: We used cardboard boxes to pack the folding bikes for our flight, and left them in Colombo for the return leg home. We didn’t pay anything extra to fly with them, and they weighed 15kg (33lbs) at check-in. Buses are very frequent and always took us. The bikes almost always ended up in the luggage compartment at the back of the bus. We’ve had no problems on trains either, in fact, the Bromptons will stow overhead! The Brompton C-Bag (22L) has been the perfectly-sized bag for our needs. If you’d like to lug around a bit more, go the Brompton T-Bag.
