I am not really a hiking person, I prefer to lay down on a beach and have a swim...but when I heard that this vegan friendly hut offers a wide selection of vegan dishes I decided I had to go… it had been a lifetime since my last decent vegan sacher cake.
So here's my guide on how to get to the Vajolet Refuge
Kandy is on the most visited cities in Sri Lanka: it is a perfect starting point to the some of the major tourist sites of the island.
Fron here you can visit Dambulla and Sigirya, the temples of Matale and take the blue train to Ella.
The city in itself is not that charming I have to say: the traffic is heavy, the buildings actually need some reformations and moving around can be quite a mess! Of course there a a cupole of things worth a visit, like the Tooth Temple, the giant Buddha on the hill and a small cave temple outside town.
But what will make want to stay and never leave is the variety and quality of vegan food in Kandy!
It was the best we tasted in all our trip to Sri Lanka, and also the cheapest 🙂
When I booked my flight for Sri Lanka I was so thrilled! I had heard that vegan food on Emirates is one of the best infight meals in the world...
With this post I'm going to explain why I was a bit disappointed 🙁
When I got to Ella at first I thought that I just wanted to relax and walk around the rice fields, climb Little Adam and Ella's rock.
Nevertheless, after the first long walk and the first trekking to Little Adam, I thought that I could do something different and look for a cultural activity.
At our guest house we saw a catalog with some organized day trips, and one caught my attention: the Buduruwagala Temple. As it looked a little expensive, I asked to the employee if it was possible to get to the temple with a public bus, and of course he said it wasn't....but guess what? It is actually really easy to go there by bus and you will pay only a few cents 🙂
Our trip to Japan was marked by hunger and sweat, but we also had the opportunity to live many unforgettable moments.
This visit to Arashiyama was our best day trip from Kyoto, we enjoyed the day and we now carry a sweet memory of this experience 🙂
We had the opportunity to spend time roaming around free monkeys (I know, we always meet monkeys everywhere we go, we love them), have a nice walk and enjoy the views.
First of all, even if it was really (believe me when I say it) hot, we didn't mind walking our way up the hill.
When I first heard about Akumal beach I was thrilled at the idea of visiting a place where I could swim with free and wild turtles. Of course I was concerned about the safety of the animals, I don't really like to bother them just for my curiosity, but I read that the area is somehow a natural reserve, so I thought that it would be ok.
