    Udawalawa

    What I love about backpackers is that they always open to other travellers. This time I went to this little trip with two very nice German girls to Udawalawa. ☺️

    I haven't mentioned yet, that the way how people drive here is literally crazy. They don't use the lanes at all and just keep putting on the breaks suddenly. Just picture that scene from the Harry Potter movie, when they take Harry to the Diagon Alley with that bus. Well, this is exactly the same experience here. However, when it comes to travelling, the cheapest way is always going by bus. We actually paid less than £2 for more than 5 hours travelling. Nice! 😁

    After we finally got to Udawalawa, we were just on time to go to the near Elephant orphanage to see how the baby elephants were fed. They were so adorable, although not very small. 🐘 At the end of the day we had some delicious curry. 🍛

    We woke up at 5am to go to an early Wild Safari by a jeep. It was convenient as the safari was organised by the owner of the place where we stayed. We were also very lucky, because our trip lasted longer than the others' and also went to some secret places where there were no other people. We have seen many elephants, beautiful birds, huge buffaloes, monkeys and many more.. 🐘🐃🐒🕊
