From the author

In March 2018 we took a trip to South Asia. The plans were to get acquainted with the history and nature of the island of Sri Lanka, a trip on a ship and a scuba diving with large sharks and mantarays in the open Indian ocean at the Southern Maldives, a visit the mysterious Andaman and Nicobar Islands, where we dreamed of meeting with the legendary mermaid - dugong..

All this we managed to realize in one way or another, this book is about it, which is a travel diary with photos and movies.

We hope you will be interested and someone our information will help in the preparation of your own trips. So, let's go!

Here are the sections of our trip:

Sri Lanka

Pidurangala mountain
Kaudulla national park
Sigiriya mountain


Diving in the Straits
Ocean patrol
Fish dining room
On firm ground
Night at the bottom of the lagoon
Giant shark
When the head like a hammer
Dangerous as tigers
Like birds
Flying to India

Andaman and Nicobar Islands

In the capital city
In tides and in straits
Underwater over a rock
Island of permitted tourism
The tops of the seas
12 years into the past
Clean water
Who is looking will always find
Long road to home
