Are you bored with life in a gray and stuffy city? Have you thought about changing your location radically?  Or having the opportunity to work remotely? Maybe you’ve heard stories about wintering on tropical islands and a life of travel. Perhaps you already have experience of remote or freelance work and realize that its meaning is not just to change one box in the office to another in own house. Do you want to act, but do not know where to start? Do you have questions but are tired of collecting conflicting and insufficient answers from different sites? Well, you’ve finally got to the right place! In this article, we will try to cover everything you need to know about living and working on a tropical island.

Did you know that you most likely never ate cinnamon? For example, I always creepyly hated cinnamon, until I tried the real one. These are completely different things! This is a bomb!
I loved it! Such a thin and incredibly pleasant, slightly bitter warm fragrance and taste.

Big turtles, which can be seen almost every day and completely free of charge, is one of the main features of Hikkaduwa. You can easily find the "Turtles beach", everyone here knows it. And the turtles themselves can often be seen in the morning, and closer to the evening, after 16:00.
And near you can watch the fish among the reefs right on the beach. A great place for young children who are not yet able to snorkel and dive.

There are two  international airports in Sri Lanka -  Colombo airport and Mattala (HRI). The second one is not so wellknown. Some times tickets to this direction are cheaper. There are few information about it, so we went there and explore thia place ourselves.

After holidays in such a wonderful country like Sri Lanka, I'm sure that everyone wants to bring a piece of it to home. That kind of a things that will warm your heart, recalling the carefree days in a tropical paradise.

There are so many interesting things here. What to choose, where to buy. Those questions will be discussed in this article. 

Hikkaduwa - city, stretching along the coast of the Indian Ocean. Interestingly, the coast is not the same type, so conditionally Hikkaduwa beach is divided into several different beaches.

Tickets purchased, the departure date is known. It's time to pack your bags!

I want to tell you from personal experience and the experience of the guests of ourvilla, which things need to take with you if you are going to Sri Lanka, and what is better to leave the house, to not carry them in vain.

Keep in mind that when you will return home, in your suitcase should be plenty of space. Because you probably will want to treat your friends and relatives with tropical fruit, to bring souvenirs, tea, butter, spices, and other exotic things.

Hello! 
I'm Ed, my wife Olga and our sons ( born 2007 and 2016 respectively ) love to travel. We have long wanted to change our place of residence to another, with more a pleasant tropical climate.  
In fact, 2015 was our first big trip abroad, and Sri Lanka was our destination.. During our travels we found a way to stay here longer. We opened our first guesthouse - Anilau Villa "Sisira" .

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.
