If you spend any time with me, you will probably quickly discover that I love words. They delight me. But even more than the words themselves, I love to know where they come from. I can't go a week without looking up the etymology of at least 5 words. 

So it was especially pleasing to discover that one of my favourite words, serendipity, is from an old name for Sri Lanka. Long ago, Sri Lanka was called Serendib. While I did not happen upon Sri Lanka unexpectedly, I feel fortunate all the same to be here, with it's stunning beaches, vibrant culture, mouthwatering food, and hospitable people.
