a quick stop in Colombo

September 4, 2016

Our jeep is in 1000 pieces, undergoing a major renovation.. With still some weeks to go before it’s ready so we’re on the hunt for a new vehicle! I have always dreamt of an old mercedes. The w123 from the eighties is really comfortable + it has AC! The past week we have been going around the island looking at all the old Mercs that’s out on the market at the moment. We will see what will happen. Crossing my fingers that we will find what we’re looking for soon. One day last week our car hunting took us to Colombo.

Petter was not really happy about this one.. Sounded better from the advert. So we said thank you and decided to go in to Colombo town to have lunch. Every time I’m about to go out and eat in this city I ask either our friend Shakthi, Colombo local that knows all the cool waterholes, or Anders, Swedish wine dealer that eats out a lot in this town, where to go.

Read more about our visit at Café Kumbuk at the Sunshinestories blog.


We strolled down Horton Place and popped into a photo gallery for a quick look. Note that Petter brought his favorite “tollor” aka clogs from Sweden. He claims they are perfect to wear here in Sri Lanka..


Then we reached one of my favorite little spaces in Colombo, PR. Just a few minutes walk from Café Kumbuk. I’ve been getting some of my favorite dresses here over the years. This time I didn’t find anything, better luck next time.

Then I spent 4 hours tracking down eco friendly yoga mats for the retreat while Petter was looking for spare parts for his motorbike. We were almost too hungry when we showed up to one of our old Colombo favorites; the Japanese restaurant Nihonbashi. Just  two minutes to eight, just before their happy hour ended and ordered way too much delicious sushi and other yummi stuff. Then we rolled home to Ahangama  in a small car packed with yoga mats.
