Guys sorry I haven’t posted for a while. Now I have something exciting to share with you. Considering recent events in Crimea, I try to cheer myself up a bit and get out of my comfort zone.

I am loving WaterMinder at the moment! As many of you have already guessed, it reminds you to drink more water. When I first apploaded it, the app asked my weight and gender, so it can help me understand how much water I need. Since water is super important for your health, I do recommend downloading this app!

Next, Calm or calm.com , which is an app that helps you get rid of anxiety, panic attacks, etc. I absolutely love meditating with this app. Also it helps me fall asleep and encourages to step out of my comfort zone.

And finally, Sleep Time. It’s not just an alarm clock! You set the time in the evening, and then in the morning the app wakes you app maybe 10-5 min. before or something like that. The reason – Sleep Time detects your sleep stages and wakes you during quiet sleep stage, hence you feel better in the morning and it’s easier to leave your bed.
This apps are free, so definitely try them.

I am wondering what’s it like to not freak out when you see monkeys, elephants, etc in the street. I mean, for Sri Lankan people monkeys are pretty much the same as cats for us – cute, but nothing too exciting.
Animals are probably one of the aspects I enjoyed most in SL, and they are everywhere. Holding baby turtles and monkeys felt almost surreal 🙂
Hope you guys enjoy the photos

These are beautiful examples of colonnial style architecture in Kandy, Sri Lanka. I loved how they stand next to Buddhist temples – so weird but absolutely stunning.

I was super excited to visit the Museum of Tsunami in Hikkaduwa. It is sistuated in a small house, damaged by tsunami in 2004. You can see how water changed things and also drastically changed lifes of people. The most touching are the pictures drawn by children. This is how they see and understand tsunami. If you go to Hikkaduwa, I definitely recommend visiting this museum as it helps you appreciate your life and people around you.

There is also a mass grave of train victims and a beautiful statue of Buddha, gift of Japanese government.

I haven’t posted anything for almost a month. The reason for that, as you can see by the name, was my lovely vacation in Sri Lanka. Weirdly, the Internet there is horrible, so I barely could check my email.
I first flew to Dubai, then to Colombo, and then travelled to Hikkaduwa. Indian Ocean was lovely – warm and nice waves for surfing, or if you don’t like waves, there’s a nice lagoon with very calm water.
I enjoyed seafood there a lot! If you go to Hikkaduwa, you gotta try garlic prawns at Joint in the South Wind restaurant, also they have yummi kalamari and seafood fried rice. Loved shark steak at Top Secret. And, obviously, fruit and juices in Sri Lanka are amazing!!!!!! Try red bananas and soursops. Sooooo good!!!!!!
