Sri Lanka – A Fun Trip to the Village

By far the village trip was my favourite; Zudhi (our guide) joined us because we needed a translator.

Below are the highlights of our Village Trip:

  • It started with a carriage ride which was dragged by a bull that took us to a wooden boat which of course led us to the village (those were and still are the actual forms of transportation in Sri Lanka).
  • We had proper Sri Lankan food prepared by the village people (not the band) and they prepared the meal mild spicy for the tourists to be able to eat and the sweet lady who was very hospitable taught us how to prepare coconut chilli paste.
  • After our meal with the villagers, we went on a Tuk Tuk (another form of transportation) and drove through the farmers’ field to get to our car.

The village trip was the highlight of our honeymoon, we had so much fun experiencing the culture, meeting villagers and eating proper Sri Lankan food using our hands.

This trip is a must, if you ever visit the beautiful Sri Lanka.

Morocco – Climbing the Atlas Mountain

The owner of the Riad ‘Rashid’ was kind enough to take us to the Atlas Mountains. Before heading there, we stopped at an outdoor local market where the natives were getting ready for the Eid festival.

Rashid explained the culture and the lifestyle of the Moroccans in Marrakesh and outside the red city. We continued our journey to the Atlas Mountain and enjoyed the view. When we arrived at our destination, Rashid advised us what direction to climb so we can reach the Ouzoud Waterfalls. It was quite an adventure and it was worth  seeing the waterfalls.


We got down the mountain and walked to a restaurant to have lunch/ dinner before heading back to the city. The journey was spectacular, the view, the scenery was very unique. I can’t think of any other place that can be comparable to Morocco. We highly recommend hiking at the Atlas Mountain and the effort to reach the waterfall is totally worth it.
