About Françoise ShantiTravel

There is a lot of history between Sri Lanka and I! It was on this island that I took my first step in tourism in the late 70s, when it started becoming a popular destination. Thus was born my passion for Asia and at the same time I contracted the travel bug. In hindsight, takeoffs and landings were the keystones of my journey. Today I am delighted to share my passion for this Emerald Isle with our Sri Lankan travelers! My favourite destination in Sri Lanka is the Jaffna peninsula for its scenery and myriad colors.
