sri! lanka! i'm going there! eeeeeeee!
i'm going here!
and maybe here!
and i don't even know where else! except that it will be super awesome!
(also: i am not using gotmyfare. OBVIOUSLY.)
i am so freaking lucky. one of chris's best friends is having a destination wedding there, so i get to tag along. and THEN, one of my good friends from highschool happens to be MARRIED to a sri lankan, and they'd been meaning to take a trip over there anyway... so we worked it out that i'd go at the same time as them, and spend the week before the wedding traipsing around the country with my friends as guides.
I KNOW, RIGHT?
i've been excited about this for months, but the act of buying the tickets tonight solidified it for me and i am practically bouncing off the walls with glee. sri lanka!
the flight over is kind of a bitch - that trip spans two nights (!!) and i get into colombo at like 3am. and actually, the flights out are pretty insane as well: international flights out apparently either leave at 3am as well, or not until like 8pm, which tacks another day of travel onto the return timeline. so i am both entering and leaving the country in the middle of the night.
whatever. totally worth it. also, i hear that qatar airways, who i'm flying, is pretty fantastic as far as airlines go. i mean.. i'm still in coach. tickets to colombo are approximately one MEEEELLION dollars just for coach class. that puts business at, like, 8 meeellion. approximately.
