Hello! I’m back.
Beijing was one of those places where you feel tired all the time – the chaos (crazy bikes and cars zooming at all directions at an intersection), the crowds, and general sensory assault.
If I’m honest, it wasn’t a great holiday. We had very hospitable hosts, and I did try my very best to enjoy every moment, but it just wasn’t the good break I’d needed from it all. And I kind of knew that when I went, but I was just trying to psyche myself up ‘cos I knew how much M wanted to go.
So. Anyway :) I’m back, and in such situations one can only look forward to the next holiday.
Which will be Sri Lanka! In end July. With 3 of my closest friends. Woot! (Too bad M can’t come ‘cos of work :( )
We will be flying into Colombo, then head straight to Sigiriya in an overnight drive, spend a couple of nights here…
And then a few more nights in Galle –
I daren’t expect much after this year’s bad streak of holidays, but methinks it might just be the one that turns the tides. :)
p.s. Beijing photos to come!
