Travelling via Emirates

This summer when we travelled to Sri Lanka we travelled by Emirates via Dubai. We travelled from Toronto to Dubai on the Airbus A380.  
Travelling via Emirates was fun because of the spacious seats. I like that we can put the seat hand resting part up and allow children to sleep flat. We enjoyed their ice entertainment that kept us busy during our long journey.

Visiting The Turtle Hatchery

Sri Lanka, an island in the Indian Ocean attracts five varieties of turtles. Turtles are pre-historic creatures that have been in the ocean for millions of years. However, due to human activities they are an endangered species. We visited a Turtle Hatchery and learned many interesting information. In the Turtle Hatchery, the turtle eggs are protected from poachers and predators.

All about Elephants at Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

Human activities and greed has immensely impacted elephants by dramatically decreasing their population. Many of these family oriented wild mammals have become orphans or have got hurt because of our careless actions. In order to save the elephants from becoming extinct, the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage was opened in 1975 in Pinnawala, Sri Lanka close to Kegalle. This facility functions as an orphanage, nursery and captive breeding ground.
