Ascend the 1200 steps at the UNESCO World Heritage Site #Sigiriya and you'll be rewarded with views to take your breath away. Laid out below are water gardens landscaped around the base of this rock when it was used as a royal palace for King Kashyapa in the fifth-century BC. He came here seeking refuge at the mighty rock following a bloody family feud. In the distance the 'Knuckles' mountain range provides an awesome aspect to look upon from the ruins of his palace at the summit. The palace would have been incredibly luxurious and it even included an on-site swimming pool, which remains today. But this is the preserve of passing birds now rather than royalty. Tourists needn't travel far for a refreshing dip though as also in view is Jetwing Vil Uyana a luxury eco-resort on a 28-acre nature reserve with fine dining restaurant, pool and spa.

A colleague recently lost her dog and it sparked a conversation about the importance of pets in a family. This #tbthursday pic is a fun hiking memory with our little Dulce. She has added so much to our lives.
We want to know what pets you have and their name.
Oh deer-y me, please don’t bite my coat again 😭 while this photo looks super candid and calm, this was actually not the case. I had no idea how hungry these deers were and the fact that they’ll keep running after you even if you don’t have any food 😂 who had a similar experience? 🙈

Я не знаю, как ещё передать свою любовь к Элле 💚 Так странно, что до сих пор у меня нет ни одной фотографии с океаном. Да я и не мечтала о нём особо! Для меня отдых на Шри Ланке - это дух приключений, чайные плантации, шумные поезда, горы, улыбчивые местные жители, национальные парки и заповедники, буддистские и индуистские храмы и, наверное, только потом океан) Вот такая я неугомонная 😅
А вам какой отдых по душе - умиротворенный на пляже или экшн каждый день? #blossom_in_srilanka
