Step 1: Flight
Deciding Sri Lanka was our destination, selecting dates and purchasing airline tickets. 💺🛫
Step 2: Excursions
Planning seven days worth of tours/excursions that accommodated everyone’s desires isn’t easy. We looked up Sri Lanka’s Must See locations on the internet. We searches Sri Lanka tags on instagram. Shared screenshots of perfect photo ops… in doing so we found a tour guide (@sri_lanka_authentic_experience) who planned a lengthy itinerary that included all of the things we wanted to see. We hired him and that was that.
Step 3: Hotels
Hotels: we are all selected and paid for using http://www.hotels.com. We selected hotels that provided free breakfast and great/ok guest reviews. It was suggested that all hotels were 4 stars or higher. We followed that advice but didn’t shoot for fancy hotels as we will only be in each hotel for one night.
Step 4: Visa
Visa’s are needed therefore we applied online at https://www.eta.gov.lk/slvisa/visainfo/center.jsp?locale=en_US.
Step 5: Packing
So let me just be honest. I’m packing according to the look I want in my photo ops at each location. So that’s totally still under construction. Sad thing is my flight leaves tomorrow at 6:50pm.
Step 6: Take Flight
