Hello there.....a little note about myself and things to do in Colombo and Sri Lanka....
I am a spiritual person who likes Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda. I have travelled extensively throughout the world and most of my travels have been backpacking and I have couchsurfed in most places.
I shuttle between London and Colombo as I have interest in both locations.
I manage 6 apartments at Hedges Court and a few in Colombo 5 which is more like a residential hub of Colombo.....both locations having the best of transport links.
I have travelled the length and breadth of Sri Lanka and would say I know Sri Lanka quite well. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need someone to make a plan on where to go in Sri Lanka.
I am also a travel writer and used to write in the Ceylon Today newspaper on various destinations in Sri Lanka if you want I can email some of the articles so that you would know in detail what to do....
