Heading to Nuwara Eliya

A travel blog entry by tpuckett


The trip to Nuwara Eliya was the prettiest drive we have done so far. It was a serious climb with 75KM taking 2.5 hours. I think you measure car power in Sri Lanka by chipmunks and not horses. Kumar was back to give us the ride. The last half of the trip was through tea plantations and waterfalls were every where. As we climbed the temperature kept …

Like being at home...not always in a good way!

... show. The temple is the most sacred Buddhist site in Sri Lanka, as it contains a tooth relic belonging to the Buddha. I didn't go into the temple, as I will be visit with some other volunteers next week, but I did go into the compound which has a few smaller temples to look at. I loved visiting, as the Buddhist temples are so far different from the churches we are used to at home. They are adorned with colourful paintings and statues, and pilgrims line up the light incense ...

Tea Country

A travel blog entry by lucifrost


We havent had the best day today... setting off with both of us quite ill we were a bit worried about our capability to make it to Nuwara Eliya but the journey through the tea fields from Kandy had great views and a nice chilling wind to cool us down. The climate here is a lot colder so the Sri Lankans prefer it - which explains why the place is absolutely packed for the 4 day Muslim holiday which they are celebrating at the moment.

The town is so busy but we ...

More tea...

... or at least so it seems), might try it at home...Schellenberg Tea Estate..sounds good! So after tea tasting we end up buying more tea (yes,yes, we have already started filling our extra bag!!!) and walk down back to Ella. We arrive at about 16:30 and it is not worth walking back to the Homestay so we hang out in Ella. Michael, Mathilde and I get to some nice bar where we sample the mojitos (no, no, not Math, she just gets a mango smoothie..) and after ...

Day 17 - Ella to Haputale

... having a hot shower to warm up. Once in the shower we were greatly disappointed. The hotter the water the less pressure there was, so we were left with Luke warm water that trickled out of the shower head. Once we felt kind of fresh we went for a wander around the town. There wasn't really anything here. The small town was quite dirty & only had shops which looked like newsagents. Hungry we headed back to our guesthouse. The choice of food wasn't huge so we had the usual. ...

Not the greatest room

The people that run this place are great and they have been very helpful. However I am still frustrated about having a pay issue when I arrived. The rooms were not so great as they stayed pretty damp the entire time. I am sure this place is fine for most backpackers.
