Now in Mirissa after an amazing few days in Tangalle. We had great fun at the wedding of Deshika and Dimi and sampled probably our last taste of luxury at the Amenwella resort before returning to the life of a backpacker. We’ve loved the beaches right on the doorstep of where we’ve stayed (Green Gardens […]

We stayed at a place called White Monkey (Dias Rest), a guesthouse run by a family of 13, 3km uphill from the town. Our ‘room’ was a cottage with […]

We have arrived in Nuwara Eliya after a stunning train journey from Kandy (see pics). There was a moment of confusion as we tried to find our carriage and seats having been sent the wrong direction a couple of times but once on with all our luggage we were pleasantly surprised by the room and […]
