Unfortunately, Munich has never been our final destination. But I’m glad we were lucky enough to have a glimpse of this beautiful city. How did we manage to do that? Easy! In order to save money, we are simply avoiding direct flights. And instead we are looking for transfer flights and searching for places where we could spend our waiting time (approximately five to seven hours*). That way we are able to see more cities and countries during our travels.
That same day we visited Oak Ray Handcrafted Wood Carvings. To be honest I was surprised to read so many negative reviews on TripAdvisor about this place. Some people even say something like: “don’t get out from the car if your driver takes you here!”.
In the next couple blog posts I will tell you about our mini adventure. After checking the travel guide and map of Sri Lanka, we’ve made a list of places we wished to visit. And then we started planning our three-day trip with our driver.
Colombo has a great museum selection: Maritime museum, Dutch period museum, Colombo National museum, Natural history museum… and list just goes on and on. And usually (99,9% of the cases) I visit few museums during my travels. But not this time. And the reason for that is a couple of “disadvantages”. To be more specific: food poisoning (lucky me, I managed to get it twice) and terrible sun burn. So, as you can imagine I wasn’t really in the mood for museums; and instead of staying within four walls I preferred to be outside.
