Sri Lanka Holiday
For whatever reason my blog seems to rank really well on Sri Lanka… Having only entered it once on my blog it seems a slightly obscure search term to be driving traffic to my site but in light of it I thought I’d do a few post this weeks on my Sri Lankan trip.
To start with I went for 3 weeks. Begining in Columbo I went straight from airport, by car down to Tangalle to stay in the middle of the forest, right on the beach in a beautiful cabana for 5 nights, from there it was straight up by a frantic and deathly bus journey to Ella where we spent 2 nights exploring the hill village and walking in the tea plantations, at this point we ran into another couple travelling with a wonderful driver called Larry who journeyed on with us by part train / part car to Adams peak where we stayed at the “slightly chilled, slightly yellow house” and climbed the steps at 3am to the top.
2 days later, more than weary, it was onto Kandy where we did day trips around the cultural triangle and elephant orphanage. Another train journey to Colombo and a further train journey down to Galle saw us hit the beaches of Unawatuna for 7 nights before it was almost home time. Back up (by train) to Colmbo, a tuktuk to Ngembo for 2 nights on the beaches before the night flight home.
Our journey wasn’t that direct, we went up and down the island as opposed to round and round but were governed by where we wanted to be as opposed to the quickest travelling or “most sensible” route.
