Colombo has a modern airport geared for tourists. When we arrive at Immigration I explained there were errors in the paperwork. The Visa I had ordered online had misspelled my name. Nervous that I would be unable to enter…and not able to return to India!! He looked at my passport …Cleared to Enter!!
Jetwing Sea Hotel– Negombo
We went through a rough couple of travel days and this resort feels like heaven. All the rooms face the beach with amazing sunset views. King size bed, huge bathroom, TV and free WiFi. We were happy to see beer in the fridge. This hits the spot!!!
Return Flight —Bypass India
Due to our Visa problem with India, we contacted our friend at home who works for Canadian Customs and Immigration. We were told we cannot enter India again. Our only solution was to re book our flight with Air Emirates to fly directly to Dubai and on to New York. Problem solved. We lost $1800.00 in airline penalties and hotel reservations. It took a whole day to get this sorted out. The good news is we can enjoy our time in Negombo.
