How To Plan A Trip To The Maldives: A Complete Guide

Just saying 'the Maldives' conjures up images of cocktails served in pineapples, warm turquoise ocean waters & palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze. It's no surprise that it is a dream destination for many of us, though, it's generally one of those dream destination that seems unattainable. Like one of those dream destinations that only Beyonce goes to. I've got a little secret to share though, it's not a place that is only for the super rich. Sure, it's an expensive place to visit & you'll have to save a bit of money for it, but if you set it up the way I did, mixing a little luxury with a little local, then it's certainly achievable.

17 Photos To Inspire You To Experience A Wildlife Safari In Sri Lanka

Firstly, if you're thinking that this post is an excuse for me to share a bunch of animal pictures then you're 100% right & I'm giving you a virtual gold star right now. I held back on spamming my Instagram page with elephants because I figured people don't want to see them as much as I do. But, I can't resist sharing them so instead I have collated them here into a post which will hopefully inspire you to add a wildlife safari in Sri Lanka to your own bucket list. There's a lot to love about Sri Lanka like the friendly people, fresh food, gorgeous beaches, Buddhist temples and, of course, the Tuk Tuk rides but today we will just focus on the wildlife. If you're like me and love animals and nature then I am sure you are going to like this, and if you do love it, you can support the blog by sharing or commenting. Or both if you're feeling a little crazy! Either way, I hope you enjoy it and p.s there are affiliate links included in this post.

When your appliances don't work, what do you do? You unplug them, give them a break and plug them back in right? Granted, most of the time we do that because we don't actually know enough to be able to troubleshoot the problem but the simple unplug seems to work like a treat and you get a new spark of life out of whatever you were trying to use. With our fast paced lives I think it's only fair that we give ourselves the same treatment and I'm here to share with you a perfect place to do just that. I recently visited Talalla Retreat in southern Sri Lanka and experienced a week of total relaxation. I don't know if it was the dreamy, tropical rooms, the beach, the buffet meals, the coconuts by the pool, the morning yoga  classes or the massage at the spa but there was a lot of relaxation to be had. If you are looking for an unplug and reset or even just wondering where to stay in Sri Lanka, then read on and travel with me to Talalla Retreat.
