Since I am working the rest of the week I am getting ready for my trip today. I have one dilemma before leaving and that is that not all my friends are on Facebook (shame on you! See how much extra work you guys giving me). Apparently these people, who call themselfs my friends, also want to stay connected with me and see what I am up to, so I decided as start of my preparations I would create this travel blog and see how it goes.
Or maybe it is an excuse not to be packing my suitcase...


So here is a little information about my trip.

I have been in Sri Lanka twice on tour and always said I wanted to go back because I really loved the place. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with good weather and very friendly people, that combination usually does the trick for me!

This year the T20 World Cup cricket will be held in Sri Lanka so a great opportunity for me to go to this wonderful place to watch the sport I love most, cricket.
After going to the Cricket World Cup in the West Indies in 2007 and the T20 World Cup in England in 2009 where Holland beat England in the opening match at Lords, I felt another World Cup was due.
As always I will be supporting my team the West Indies and I expect great results from both the men and the women this tournament. Rallly round the West Indies now and forever!!

In Sri Lanka I will visit Colombo, Galle and Kandy. I have been to Colombo and Kandy before but Gale will be new. Hopefuly I can go scuba diving while I am there as that is another thing I really enjoy doing.

After the final I will go and visit my brother and celebrate his birthday with him in Singapore. Going home on the 8th of October when my brother's birthday is on the 10th and I am 'only' 4 hours away just didn't seem right. So from Colombo I fly to Singapore. My brother and his family moved there this summer, after spending 4 years in Hong Kong so it will be nice to visit them in their new home.

All in all I think some great ingredients for yet another lovely trip. So for who is interested watch this space, Thursday is when all the fun starts.

All I need to do now is pack and get ready. One of my downfalls is that for someone who really loves to travel I sure hate packing!!

Schedule for the World Cup T20

No guarantee: if this happens to be my only post don't feel too disappointed it could be for a number of reasons. The most likely being my trip is so boring that I don't know what to post ;-)
