A look into my life as I make a major life transition to the Middle East. The challenges I will undoubtedly face, the victories to come, and the memories to be made, all strung together in the hopes to make up my hollywood ending...

Piece of Paradise
Unawatuna Beach, Slice of Heaven
So, I do not know if you were aware of this BUT did you know that you can get sunburned in, yes in, your belly button?! Because my friends that was a little present that Sri Lanka sent me home with, along with about 35 bug bites, yes I counted. I told my mom about that tonight and she is now convinced that I have Malaria and after my latest google search I just found out that Sri Lanka is a "Malaria Hot Spot." Let's all go! But really we all should it is an absolutely amazing place.
The race was afoot and of course
E & I won!!!
The beaches where smooth and the sand felt nice on our feet as we ran like Pamela Anderson and the Hoff down the beach. Well, actually we did not run at all, but E did make me perform his 8 minute workout on the beach, in the sand, and oh yes the sand was everywhere, but at least some fitness was had, even if it was done begrudgingly. We rode around in Tuk Tuks, ate amazing sea food, and even took in a Cricket Match of two of the best teams in the world, Sri Lanka and Australia.
Go Sri Lanka! Smells like Team
It was a quick weekend, we flew in spent three days in this beautiful open air hotel called, Tharpobon. The staff was welcoming and smiling, by the end we had all made friends. It was so relaxing, we talked about returning some day very soon. But I will be sure to throw some zinc in my delicate little belly button next time.
