Views from Ella

On our way out of Sri Lanka we made a stop in Ella. Ella is a cool little place up in the highlands where you can do some hiking since the temperature is not to hot to move in. So we checked into this amazing little guest house with awesome views of the hills and a waterfall. Β And yeah to be honest I’m quite a lazy hiker, there’s this mountain in Bali that I say I’m gonna walk up to – but always next time I’m there. And next time sort of comes and goes all the time. So I had this idea that I would sit on our super awesome balcony with my coffee and my book and just chill out and enjoy the views. Well that didn’t happen which is a good thing, we had this professional hiker straight out of Nepal that we meet in Arugam bay with us. So Tim tricked us to just go have a look at the track on our first night and then since we’d already gotten that far we might just as well have a closer look and then we’re at the top of the world… or little Adams Peak. Second day we made the walk up the Ella Rock which was just as cool.
