So, you’re considering a move to Sri Lanka? If so, you will want to know whether you should buy or build your home there. With plenty to do in the area and many reasons to move, it can make a beautiful destination for just about any type of move you want to make.
It is important to note that if you will be building in Sri Lanka, you will want to take time to talk to a reputable general contractor to undertake the job. They’ll be knowledgeable when it comes to the codes, laws and building restrictions for the area.

If you’re an expat in search of a new home, Sri Lanka is a great choice to consider. This island nation was once a well-known place for Buddhists but over the years, Europeans began settling in the country. Known as ‘the Pearl of Indian Ocean’ Sri Lanka is located near India and the Maldives and is popular for its coffee and tea as well as cinnamon and coconuts.

Thus began a good day) It's only the sun rises, and I'm with the other guys going into the next village Unawatuna, to participate in the filming of of a new serial.

Try and learn something new, while receiving invaluable experience, one of the greatest pleasures of my life. And so, by happy coincidence, I had the opportunity to look in the movie world from the inside and learn what it's like to be inconspicuous color spot on the background of the real actors acting))

The beginning of the year sets the tone of its run - everybody say so in Russia, but hardly anyone takes it 100% seriously. But maybe there is some sence. And this year I can easily find this out.

This year started for me in unusual way, although I spent this time at home. But for Ed, it was the most unusual New Years Eve! He spent it at a luxury beach in Hikkaduwa, which is on the southwestern coast of Sri Lanka.

The administrative capital of Sri Lanka - Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte. But few people can pronounce this name, so the unofficial capital became the city with  easier name. Worldwide Colombo recognized as the actual capital of Sri Lanka.

In fact, Colombo is the commercial and political center of the country. It is the largest city by area, by population, by the number of universities, supermarkets and car. Here you can find something that is not present in the rest of the island. For example, rare products, goods and services.

After overcoming 3 hour trip from Nanu Oya, we came in a completely different world. Here was warm, we were surprised how easy and fast it is to get from one climate to another. Almoust the same mountains and greenery in Ella, but probably because of the warmth, the area seemed  welcoming and friendly. We wanted to walk a little more here and see the beauty.
After being settled in the guesthouse, we began to think, from what sights start to have time to see as much as possible.

After a walk in the rain for Nuwara Eliya sightseeing, we returned to the damp cold room and warming up with hot tea and ate Noodles, cooked in a glass. We moved beds together, have taken cover by all that was found and slept under the clatter of our own teeth)

In the morning cheered up with ice water, as hot, of course, did not work, ate a Kurd with dates and a giant banana. We packed very quickly things and ran, dodging the rain, to the bus station.

The only desire was - quickly go where warmer.

After climbing mountains, closer to the night, friend of our friend Manju - Danushka come and took us to his home at Gampola. From Gampola next day we will go by train to Nuwara Eliya. Technically, the train goes to Nanu Oya and from there 20 minutes by bus to the Nuwara Eliya. On the way, we learned that Danushka is a photographer and a very cheerful, pleasant and hospitable man. He took us to his house to spend the night, gave us a separate room, offered tea and snacks all the time asking if we need anything else. Also he said that in the morning will cook some breakfast for us. Although we will have to leave very early.

This is a beautiful place to stay surrounded by trees and water. It feels like you are in a tree house on an island and not on the main road. Flora and Fauna is located in Mirissa South. It houses a restaurant, with special diet menus available on request. Free WiFi access is provided in its public areas. 
Offering garden views, each room is fan-cooled and comes with a mosquito net and a seating area. The private bathroom offers shower facilities. Guests can rent a bicycle or car to explore the surrounding area. Laundry and tour arrangement services are available and free parking is provided.

For me one of the main purpose (after travel) - moving to live in warm country. Caribbean countries, Thailand, Sri Lanka or like this - its the dream that became the goal. Starting from full ground in Kharkiv, I stubbornly went to this goal and already "groped" her ... But "they" came to Ukraine and "zdobuli" (reached) is not clear what, and it is not clear who, in general. Sales in my online store fell, costs rose. As well as increased costs for life itself by about 50% at the moment.

Cheerless times in Ukraine and even more gloomy economic prospects have forced me to look for additional sources of income, and preferably in dollars. So the source of the most familiar to me, seemed to work as a programmer. Thanks to the experience of creating websites as a typesetter and project manager, working php developer I was relatively familiar. A school knowledge of algorithms and initial ownership Pascal gave me confidence.

And so I decided to start (and it was at the beginning of June 2014). About the beginning of my training I will cover in next post.

To Istanbul we went spontaneously, with a friend. We wanted to see what good we can buy for our online store. Bought hookahs, tobacco and jewelry from Osmanli Taki.
We saw very little because the trip was really working, and most of the time we spent at the Grand Bazaar. But to explore the city itself, or rather its central part, the Bosphorus and some of the sights we were still able.
About Istanbul I am not going to tell. Too much can be told, and I know too little. So just a few photos with comments.

Residents of the district Alexeevka certainly known beach outside the ring road. As for me, the place is completely unsuitable for recreation, actually like all similar in Kharkov. But in hot weather to sunbathe, swim and catch fish people going there very often. Perhaps because the pond itself is pretty big, clean and beautiful. We decided to examine it in more detail and set off on bicycles.

The idea, to capture what he saw did not appear at once, so the first photos of this review, a photo of the unsightly beach, taken from Google. Then a lot of pictures and very short story about what else besides this "beach" can be seen and what is not seen on Lozoven'kovskoe reservoir.

Winter trip to the Stariy Saltov, that near Kharkov - a few photos from my phone. First time in the ice hole after a bath - delightful experience)

It all started with a lantern on the porch. Although everything was understandable, there was a sensor that turns the light on when someone is within range.
Why am I talking about it?
- Because when I came, it was turned off.
True - not always, but sometimes it turned on ... rarely, mostly turned off. Draws attention, even briefly watched - it turns on when others reach the radius of a sensor . When I - it is usually turned off.

From machines that stand at the entrance, often poured off gasoline, so the sensor was removed and the lamp is turned on constantly. But ..

Sevastopol - the city of my childhood years, as well as Odessa. Every summer, from birth to the university for 1-2 weeks we traveled either Sevastopol or Odessa, or sometimes both. There are no good pictures this time, because I did not take a camera, but I think not the last time there.
