      The rooms are very clean if somewhat bare. Concrete beds, polished concrete walls and floors. No hot water for our 3 days stay there and the staff and management could not give a toss for the guests. Such a shame because it could be a nice place

      ... that today. De 3e tuktuk pakt het net iets anders aan dan de rest en hij heeft succes. Hij is mooi gekleed, lacht vriendelijk en legt uit wat hij kan doen voor ons. Hij biedt ons een toer aan langs de belangrijkste plekjes in Colombo voor 10$ per uur. Ok 7,5€/h is niet goedkoop maar ook niet onoverkomelijk dus de bedoeling is er een uurtje of 3 mee rond te rijden en dan zullen we het wel gezien hebben. The third tuktuk has a different approach than the others and he is ...

      ... possible to not want to be amongst them- beautiful and stylish, passionate and effusive- even if they do have an annoying obsession with small, bonsai dogs?

      Would I travel again in Italy if I had a choice?

      Honestly, no. I wouldn’t.

      This is a beautiful, wonderful world to discover and our time is short. And there’s a voice inside me saying Italy already isn’t my best destination yet, and it ...

      Last of four sea days today, this cruise is rolling on now :-( We'll soon be heading North for the last time :-( Orangery breakfast for a change, bowl of porridge and a bowl of pineapple and melon, very healthy :-) then up on deck13 in the sun. The day ended up naff yesterday, squally and cloudy but this morning the weather front has past and it's blues skies all the way with a few wispy clouds. Had a coffee morning chinwag do at 11 ;-) which dragged on ...

      ... walls. We lined up to go inside where we
      were amazed by the vivid paintings and intricate hand carvings. The
      ceilings were about twenty five feet high and not even an inch was
      left unpainted. A huge Buddha laying on its side could be seen in
      one of the rooms. Next to it, was an altar where people lay their

      wrist and what each signified (I don't just buy them, they all mean
      something) and a couple of nights later when I popped in for a drink he
      announced he had a present for me. He had only gone and bought me a
      typical Sri Lankan little thread bracelet which I insisted he tie on me
      and I am proudly wearing as I type this. I digress, as usual!
