Kristin Addis, Travel Blogger: Welcome to Sri Lanka.
Female Steve Hänisch, Travel Blogger: We’re on our way to the train station where we start our tour.

Arugam Bay
Southeast Coast of Sri Lanka

Kristin Addis: Hello guys, and welcome to Arugam Bay. It is on the east coast of Sri Lanka. It’s known for surfing, as as you can see behind me, a little fishing town.

Steve Hanisch, Backpacker: Good morning from Arugam Bay. We start this day with a hike to Kudumbigala, a sanctuary which is on a rock.

This is quite a morning already.

Kudumbigala Buddhist Rock Monastery

Steve Hanisch, Backpacker: So we’ve made it to Katmanburi. We’re going to find some street food here. It’s really hot; it’s like forty (40 C) degrees.

Kristin Addis, Travel Blogger: It’s nice; it’s crunchy. And it’s made of coconut, but it doesn’t necessarily taste like it.

Steve Hanisch, Backpacker: It’s spicy coconut.

Kristin Addis, Travel Blogger: Yeah, it’s like eating a pancake.

This is Sri Lankan tea, which smells like lemongrass. It’s special; it tastes sweet.

Steve Hanisch, Backpacker: Good morning from Tricomalee. We are about to go on a boat to see dolphins and whales and then we’ll go to Pigeon Island to snorkel and see reef sharks and turtles and fish.

Steve Hanisch, Backpacker: I guess I have found paradise, and paradise is called Pigeon Island. I would say let’s go snorkeling. Jump into the water and see if we can see a shark.

Pigeon Island National Park

Steve Hanisch, Backpacker: Alright: the pool and beach is really nice.

Kristin Addis, Travel Blogger: But a frosty beer makes it better. Cheers!
