    ... guide activities so I don't think he was working very hard in the army. The good thing about him is that he can explain us about Sri Lanka, tell us about the places we visit and also performs as a photographer. This is nice because we have too little pictures with the both of us. Aangezien we nog niet ontbeten hebben trakteren we hem op een ontbijt in een nabijgelegen eethuisje waarnaar we onderweg waren. 440 Rupee oftewel 2,5€ voor ons drieën voor een reeks gebakjes ...

    ... Pigeon Island at Nilaveli. The beach at Nilaveli was beautiful, but completely empty; I was the only person in Galaxy Guesthouse on the beach.

    ... all the time so that was not an issue although I still must have looked a bit of a sight!

    A very polite delivery driver apologised to me on behalf of Qatar Airlines and invited me to check that my luggage was correct.

    ... the locals well enough so they can build with confidence on their own. Who ever knew that this was how my time in Sri Lanka would end but unfortunately it is now my time to leave and rejoin with my friend back in Thailand for a few days before I continue my journey through Asia.

    Yes I did finally sort out what I would do after Sri Lanka and it certainly isn't India. I did have a flight booked and an amazing farm tourism development volunteer placement lined up until ...
