Today we visited  The Sea Turtle Hatchery close to Unawatuna. I have been here before but I wanted to show Oscar these beautiful creatures of Sri-Lanka. It’s a place for turtles that had been injured by boats, animals and needs help to survive. It’s not expensive to see these little precious creatures swimming around waiting to be realeased into the sea, around 5€ per person. They also have many old turtles that are injured and they are reeeally big and so beautiful, but very hard to take pictures of since they like to stay under the water. Unfortunately only 1-2% of these baby turtles survies the sea, many people/animal takes them before they have even entered the sea as well.I felt so bad looking down at these babies thinking that not many here will survive..But I guess it’s the circle of life. Anyway a great experience, and you can also donate money for food and so on to the turtles. Love, N

Hello babes. We just arrived in Unawatuna, my favorite place in Sri-Lanka. We booked a room at Cantaloupe Hotels (link here), I will write about all the places and adventures we do since so many of you have asked about it. So far we are sooo happy with this hotel and it was even nicer than the pictures. Such a beautiful view and the staff is amazing. The weather is not so good today so we will book a time for some spa now and later we will go out and eat dinner. I hope the weather will be better tonight becuase I really want to enjoy the golden sunset here. Love, N

Packing, packing & more packing… I can’t believe it’s only 4 days left until we sit on a plane on our way to my Sri-Lanka: 50% of my roots… I have a feeling that this trip will be magic. I have not seen my relatives in 4 years now so I really miss them! And in November it’s time to visit my other half: Sweden. The good thing about being a mixed kid is that you have 2 countries to visit hehe. One in the tropics and one in the north, so I can’t really complain. But I have to say that I feel much happier when the weather is warm… well, who doesn’t? I have to go to bed early today because I have a photoshoot with Double Agent tomorrow! Love, N

Packa, packa och packa! Kan inte riktigt förstå att vi sitter på ett flygplan påväg till älskade Sri-Lanka om 4 dagar, 50% av mina rötter är därifrån. Jag har en känsla av att den här resan kommer att bli magisk. Det var över 4 år sedan jag såg mina släktingar där så jag har verkligen saknat de! Och i November är det dags för den andra halvan – Sverige! Lyxen att vara från två olika länder, en i tropiska Asien och en i norra Europa – jag klagar inte! Måste dock säga att jag trivs bättre i värmen… fast vem gör inte? Måste lägga mig tidigt idag då jag har en plåtning med Double Agent imorgon! Love, N
