It was two happy people arriving in Colombo after a short flight from Kuala Lumpor. We were looking forward to spend 14 days on the beach in Hikkaduwa, jumping into the waves and to take a long break from traveling.
We traveled around Sri Lanka for a month last year and this time we only wanted to enjoy the beach.

After checking in at our room at "Vibration" we went to the beach and looked for the small family-run hotel we found last year.
The location of this hotel is right on the best part of the beach and the room with a nice porch is a really find for less than $20 per night.


We we're a little bit anxious to see if they had any rooms available and when we met the owner/manager and she gaved us a big smiled and said "You're back!! we knew we didn't have to worry.
We spent the next 7 days on the beach, and some evenings we drank a bit of Arrak on the porch and then went barefoot dancing. Perfect!


And then came the rain....and the rain....and more rain!

It rained mostly the whole time we had left and after listening to screaming drunk Italians 3 nights in a row we decided to leave a day early.
We catched the slow train to Negombo and the next morning we took a Tuk-tuk to the airport in the rain.
We checked in at our hotel in Kuala Lumpor, got our left luggage and after a dinner of Naan we went to bed.

This morning we woke up to the news of the missing Air Asia flight and the burning ferry between Greece and Italy

We are supposed to fly with AirAsia to Cebu in the Philippines tomorrow morning, but with the heavy storm/typhoon heading for that area we hesitate.
We are closely watching the weather forecast in a rainy Kuala Lumpor.
