    Great place to stay

    loved this guest house, we didn't know there was a kitchen/living area when we booked, what an unexpected treat! Really friendly and helpful welcoming staff, the communal area means that you can meet people and stay for a chat if you want to, but comfortable rooms with chairs on the balcony in the upper rooms means you have space if you want it as well. Upper rooms with bigger sit out area is most expensive, rooms further along with no real sit out bit are a little cheaper with rooms downstairs being the least expensive, but no sit out area. We felt it was a little on the expensive side, but especially worth it for the cooking facilities.

    And now for something completely different. The Dutch
    fort of Galle feels like it has been lifted from a sleepy town in Portugal,
    with cobbled streets lined with cafés and jewellery shops, until a tuk-tuk
    almost mows you down and you remember where you are! Our guesthouse is called
    Beach Haven and is the oldest in the fort as the …

    Checking out this morning was rather difficult. Normally the types who get bored just sitting around on a beach for days on end, the last few days here have been amazing. We have really been able to relax and enjoy our surroundings. The staff at Cinnabar have been so kind, possibly taking pitty on us for being the poor backpackers and have given …

    ... we have been, they have all been great hosts and made us feel welcome. Another first was eating rice with my hands. I always wondered why DJ used his hands to eat rice and sauce. Initially there was no cutlery so I tucked in, although I soon realised everyone was laughing at me as I was using both hands. Apparently we are supposed only use our right hand as they use their left hand in the toilet (what ever that means). ...

    ... I'd found. Essentially "rice & curry" isn't as we know it, it's a helping of rice with numerous other dishes around the side, similar to an Indian Thali but a little drier and to me, far more flavoursome.

    I was also to be greeted the next day but my Frenchie, Marco, which was a great surprise. The number of times we'd said bye and seen each other again was getting silly but always fun. I also got chatting to a lovely ...
