    Arugam Bay

    September 24, 2017 in Sri Lanka ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    So, early bird catches the worm... 7 am, checkout and got some food. And then? A torture... Bus from mirissa to matara, then to monaragala, on this part of the tour the bus was broken and we had to wait for the next... This one was already full and another twenty people had to join... Finally we arrived in monaragala and recognized that the last bus was full. No place for four more guys with backpack.

    We resolved this small problem by hiring two tuktuk.
    Everything went well 'til suddenly the front wheel was flat. We changed the wheel and ten minutes later the second one was also flat. Nothing to change anymore and in the middle of nowhere.
    A nice guy, a local stopped and offered us a ride to arugam Bay for free in his car. It was the most comfortable ride of the last weeks and he brought us directly to our place.

    I stayed in Longhostel, a good place to be for surfer guys. Sadly I'm not a surfer so if I woke up everyone was already at the beach and in the early afternoon all guys were asleep. I used my time to practice my guitar playing or hanging at the beach. I didn't mind if someone was sitting next to my while I played guitar. It's good for my self confidence.
    Two days later I went to beach Hut. Because the two girls from Germany I met in anuradhapura were there as well. So we had a nice time at the beach and met a lot of really nice and cool people. Specially David, a guy from Colorado, a yoga instructor and Chris also a yogi and my room mate for the week. Luana and Nick. And a group of four people I met on a party Friday night. Steph, a girl from Germany with sri Lankan roots, Freya and Philipp and Jojo, a.k.a Johanna come from Göttingen. These four will be my next travel buddy's for the coming weeks. Tomorrow we're heading to Ella.
