“Welcome to Sri Lanka. Wonder of Asia” was written on the billboard at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. The slogan proved itself right. Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, is a fantastic destination in Asia where you can have it all… Pure nature, wildlife, pristine beaches, cultural heritage, adventures, sports, and spirituality.
When telling your parents your next travel destination is in an exotic region, the first thing they talk about how many dangerous diseases there are, you must be crazy for choosing this as travel destination, why can’t you go to a safer destination?!
Mexico City… the city everyone is scared of! The parents, the friends, the travel guides, the woman sitting next to me during the flight, well everyone warned me how dangerous Mexico City is. And yes they managed to scare me off. I was scared to death to be outside after sunset, I was scared to take my money or camera out of my bag, I was scared to ask something to anyone… Luckily only at the first day, till I realised that nobody actually cared about me.
