    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

    Over the next few days, we ventured out daily and made a point of seeing one or two sights. It was very humid and hot so a big schedule was out of the question.

    ... and share. Prawn curry and black spiced pork is what we ordered and both were really good! Once we smashed all the munch we went for a pint at a bar across from it still upstairs. It had suspended seats which was pretty cool to just swing about on while having a drink. Then went to bar with swing chairs. It was a little to quiet there so we headed downstairs back to bar we were at before. Once you have a couple of drinks you end up wanting to go out so we ...

    ... of emotions! I'm sad as I'm leaving and I've met some awesome people in Sri Lanka and had a lot of laughs, I'm apprehensive as I only have the first few days planned for Thailand and this is the first full country that I will be winging it on my own and I'm incredibly excited about what I'm going to experience there. I think there is also something else creeping in. I'm three months into my trip now and at this point of change I'm praying that the rest of the time I have ...

    ... 4.5km round trip hike to ‘Little Adam’s peak’ for sunrise and some spectacular views, the walk to Ella Rock and back was about another 3 hours. It was very cloudy so no view from the top, but we had a nice walk back passing many school children following the rail road track and a good swim in a river on the way. The train ride from Ella to Kandy was beautiful, snaking through a green sea of tea fields with the colourful silk saris of Tamil tea ...
