What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The most inspirational part of the trip for me was making the climb to the mountain fortress of Sigiriya. This was a personal mission for me as I am scared of heights and a year ago would have been too unfit to make it to the top. But the feeling of achievement to have got to the top was amazing and the views were incredible.
From a more enjoyment point of view, the cycle ride following the small village route through the paddy fields was the best part of the holiday for me. Children would run out as we passed to say hi and practice their English, and we stopped for a coconut milk drink before having a traditional lunch at a farmhouse. It was a perfect morning.
