Well that's it, after all the planning and prepping of the last few weeks and months, we are off to Sri Lanka tonight..
We are visiting family who have set up a charity in Sri Lanka that cares for street dogs and educates on animal welfare - but it is so much more than that and I do recommend taking a look at their story on the website as it is inspirational to read how it all came about. following the 7/7 London bombings.
Our daughter has been given a wonderful opportunity and she will be volunteering with Dogstar Foundation, we will have some holiday time first to explore Sri Lanka then she will go off to do the volunteer work with Sam and Mark and we will spend a bit more time in Sri Lanka before flying home.
If you would like to make a small donation to Dogstar Foundation then please go to our fundraising page here. Any amount, big or small, is very much appreciated and we are looking forward to finding out more about how our donations get used. Our trip is entirely self-funded.
I will be posting regular updates and envy-inducing photos on my little grid on Instagram but otherwise I will be having some social media free time and enjoying the relaxing slow pace of life and stunning scenery in Sri Lanka.
I hope all my readers have wonderful holidays too - whether it is a staycation or if you are jetting off somewhere, relax and enjoy and I will be back later in August to tell you all about Sri Lanka.
