It was an amazing experience to watch veteran riders giving their best on the tracks. The noise and the atmosphere doubled my excitement level. If you are sensitive to noise then I suggest you to carry a headphone.

The speed of the bikes were so fast that it was not possible to capture the moving images of the bikes in my camera. The bikes were moving at an average speed of 100mph.

Spectators were cheering their favorite riders, defying hot and humidity climate.
I was closely observing everyone – from cameramen to crew members.

Whale Watching In Sri Lanka

Seeing gigantic blue whales is always exciting!
I too wanted to feel that excitement at least once in my life.  And that moment finally arrived when I saw couple of them in the middle of the Indian Ocean. During my recent trip to Sri Lanka, I booked a whale watching trip with a tour operator called ‘Raja & the Whales’ .

Together with a group of 15 people, my journey set off from the harbor of Mirissa.

We were desperately waiting to catch a glimpse of the world’s most fascinating creature. After traveling few kilometers into the middle of the Indian Ocean, we did not see anything. The only thing that we saw was just incredible bluish water and few cargo ships.

Sticking with the famous saying “Patience is key to success”, we decided to sit patiently for few more hours with a hope of catching a glimpse of a whale. And suddenly our guide called us. It was hard to believe that finally I saw them. To be honest, they were huge in size, equivalent to the length of a Boeing.

We saw two blue whales – one mother and her baby. My joy did not end here. While returning, we also saw a pod of Bottlenose dolphins, jumping and swimming in the water. It was an absolutely exhilarating experience which I will cherish forever in my life.

Tips about whale watching: Though whales are found in many parts of Sri Lanka, tourists prefer to start their journeys from Mirissa harbor. A pair of binoculars and a zooms lens is a must if you look forward to a more exciting whale watching experience. There is a strong possibility that you may become a victim of sea sickness. Better take a pill before jumping into the boat. Mirissa is well connected to major Sri Lankan towns and cities. Buses are frequently available to reach this destination.

Thank You 🙂
