Driving the Hill Country and Drinking Tea

... hope that Karma and the Gods of it smile upon them the same way it did for me the morning of my wallet being stolen. Either way - thank you guys where ever you may be now.

I headed into town to cancel my bank cards and have a look around. A cute little town, interesting market however very much just felt like a stop over between more interesting locations in the Hill Country, although I can understand why it would have been a great place to retreat to or even ...

I had a chance to see a sleepy leopard, a sloth bear, many buffalo, elephants, wild boat and more creatures. The excitement over seeing the elusive leopard was comical with my driver calling other jeeps and racing around the dirt roads in order to catch it on time. When we ...

... route around the mountains leading past the peak, into the Finlay tea plantation (250 rupees for a ten minute tour and a cup of tea), then down into the Jungle, onto the railway tracks across the Nine Arch Bridge and then along the tracks all the way back into Ella. The walk is so amazing and the next day I would be doing it again with a couple of others but in reverse.

I had a lot of luck in my travels and literally as we hit the nine arch bridge the ...

... experience. We all got dried and changed and got back into the minibus and carried on driving through mountains to get to our hostel in Nuwara Eliya..it was very scenic, hills and mountains covered with tea plantations, we stopped at one and had some cake and a cup of "The Worlds Best Tea"..it was delicious but I'd still prefer a brew made back at home by my Mum or Will :p It started to rain and get dark and we started to drive up higher into the mountains and ...

Tea and biscuits in the dinning room next to the log fire on an old sofa under the gaze of a giant photo of Queen Elizabeth was slightly surreal. The fact that two English ladies were in the dinning room eating Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding was even more odd. The billiard rooms ...
