MY EXCURSION TO THE END OF THE WORLD. HOT DAMN.

What’s up fellow people of the internet/WordPress?
It’s been kind of forever since I last posted but not because I forgot or purposefully put it off. Wait, actually, I did purposefully put it off but not for the reason you’re probably thinking of.

Why did I put it off? Well last weekend was a family trip which I will eventually get to talking about and after that was kind of a wind-down period for me because all the Visa hassle and stuff actually had me kinda wound up. So I kicked back and let go the reins as much as I could.

So,

Onto the trip.

Where did I go?
I went to World’s End Sri Lanka in the National Park of Horton Plains which ya’ll can google right now (look at you being so technologically advanced and stuff, gosh) but if you feel that’s too much of a hassle, let me explain what it is.

The Horton Plains is national park located on the top of one of the tallest mountains in Sri Lanka and along the treks through the park, one comes across three landmarks. Baker’s Falls which is a waterfall and two huge cliff-faces/cliff-drops one small and one huge, respectively called Mini World’s End and THE World’s End. They both feature two natural ledges (which are now paved in concrete) overhanging precipitous chasm. And it’s cold, cold freezing up there while you trek 5km on foot to see these awesome sights. Following will be some pictures (of course, what else) I took during the trip.

Baker’s Falls. After an exhausting climb. Purest water I’ve ever seen anywhere so far in my little life.

The water flowing down from Baker’s Falls. Please excuse my wannabe artsiness. It’s a condition.

Mini World’s End. Beyond the area where people are dangling their flimsy bodies is a sheer sheer drop. God.

And the piece de resistance, WORLD’S END. Featuring two lovely family members being avant garde and daring. I didn’t get any closer because I suffer from agoraphobia. FEAR. OF. HEIGHTS.

It was a VERY REAL experience being both ON TOP OF THE WORLD as well as being at LITERAL WORLD’S END. Which is a very optimism inspiring title by the way.

Also, the day before this we stayed over in Nuwaraeliya which is the highest city in Sri Lanka and the climate there reflects this by being really cold and cold. It’s also home to most of Sri Lanka’s tea plantations and really old, victorian style housing and building and a lot of cute houses and lovely English names like Warwick Gardens and such. Here’s a typical old building.

The post office of Nuwaraeliya, built in early 1800s still stands (as your awesomely working eyes confirmed by looking at the above pic) and is very very very cool. Especially for people like me to like their share of old old stuff.

I’m gonna end my post now but I have been doing some stuff these past few days that I must talk about. So laters’ folks. I’m off.
