Rishan picked us up in Colombo for a 10-day drive around the island. Today we are flying back to Europe and I still can't believe all the beauty I experienced in the past two weeks. It feels like an eternity in the most positive way.
We have to thank Rishan for our wonderful experience.
He didn't only drive us around, he became a friend. An ally. He showed us his amazing country like nobody else would. Made us understand more about the culture and customs of Sri Lanka.
Needless to say, he was always very professional, discreet and friendly and his English is remarkably good.
When it came to shopping, he told us the best ways to bargain and even didi it for us at times. Every now and then he made a few suggestions, always very appreciated and never-ever pushing us to go to a certain place or buying a certain product. As I said: he was an ally.
We drove silent for hours. We engaged in conversations also for hours.
You share a lot of time with your driver when you are on a road trip. Think twice, three times about whom you hire for this.
A colleague of mine recommended us his services. She drove around the island with her family 3 years ago with Rishan. I can only do he same.
Rishan, you are great. We miss you already. Thank you, thank you. THANK YOU.
