The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.
Sri Lanka is Soaring
Sri Lanka is soaring as a destination in its own right, now elevated into the spotlight after landing in the #1 spot on the coveted Lonely Planet Best Country List in 2013. More than just an extension or stop over from India, Sri Lanka has its own unique charm that should not be overlooked.
After over two decades of civil war and political turmoil this magical island is now open for international travellers to discover. Low-cost flights and affordable prices offer amazing value for money and allow you to truly get off the beaten track while exploring divine ancient cities, pristine natural landscapes and diverse national parks.
Cycle through misty highlands and dense jungles, take a wildlife safari in Minneriya National Park to spot wild elephants, white water raft down the Kelani River, trek through tea plantations and rice paddies, relax on divine coastlines, tour the breathtaking grandeur of the ancient city of Anuradhapura, or sample delectable dishes with chef escort Peter Kuruvita.
