    Nice beach hotel

    We arrived in the quiet season and don't think there was anyone else staying there. The restaurant was also closed. so I can't comment on that. The rooms were large and were really nice. Mosquito net over the bed was more than adequate and for once was free of dust and holes. Good location and right on the beach. The staff are also very attentive. I would stay here again.

    Biggest, cheapest, badest, bestest rooms on the beach

    We scoured the beach, up and down for a relatively cheap A/c room, ensuite too. This place had the best sized rooms, all with four poster beds and the staff / family are really friendly, unlike a few other places nearby.

    As it is off-peak, the restaurant was closed so can't comment on the food, but the menu had the standard fare of Sri Lankan and Western. The beachfront here is also where the sea is at it's calmest, although it is about 1-2kms from town, so no ATMs nearby!

    Good stay

    We enjoyed our stay at Neelas. It is low season so it is a bit like a deserted beach but the staff were really friendly.
    Watch out for the guys giving massages on the beach. They look pretty seedy to me but I saw some girls having one which they seemed to enjoy?
    Unfortunately they didn't have curry and rice so we can't really say the food was that spectacular, next door they had string hoppers for breaky which we opted for.
    Bathrooms could do with an update and the mozzies are pretty annoying so be warned. We had to ask for a mozzie net as our room didn't have one.
    All in all, a good place to stay.

    ... and getting a tan. We then got ready, and went back to Woodfired Pizza, as we so enjoyed this the night previous. The guys got pizzas, and I had tagliatelle with chicken, which was delicious. We also shared some overdone potato wedges, but I was too hungry to care. After this we went back to our hotel to FaceTime people from home. We had a hot chocolate before bed, talked and then got into bed to read and have an early night, ready for the next ...

Between eruptions the line is a wildlife oasis, with mutli-coloured birds flitting about, whooping monkeys, truly huge bats, monitor lizards and the occassional a mongoose, - which is about the size of a ...

    ... the party. Best thing, we got to eat what we cooked. We invited our driver (now really impatient to be going) to join us, but he declined and later ordered a Roti. As there was so much garlic in the food, Jenny was only able to eat a little (too much as it was), and ordered a Roti herself. In the end, there was confusion over who's Roti was who's, so our driver got the lot. On the final leg of our journey we came upon an accident, a head on between 2 ...

    Day 8

    We made a mess up to start off the day! Our tour included breakfast and a taxi to the national park which we were told would leave at 9.30am. What we didn't realise was that breakfast was at our hotel before that. We thought they were going to take us somewhere! So we missed ...

    Took a minivan for 11,000 rpees from Ella which we thought was a bit on the pricey side, but they have a minvan cartel going on in Ella, and at least it was marginally better than the official rate of 12,500. If you are lucky they may find other people to share with you. We were not lucky.

    We stopped after a few minutes for driver to do his buddha thing and then again at the Rawana waterfall close by. This was a good photo op. Drive down hills was windy and good views, then on ...
