Today is an early start for the train ride to Kandy. This is meant to be a highlight of the trip because of the stunning views. The train was almost fully booked and we were only able to get 3rd class tickets. We are a bit worried as all the other westerners are taking either 1st class or observation class tickets in the flash end of the train. We …

Another early start as we want to make the most of the day. Our driver meets us outside the hotel and seems like a really nice friendly guy. We head off to Sygiria Fortress which is about 2-3 hours drive from Kandy.

Sigiriya Fortress (lion rock) is a 4th century fortress built on top of a huge 200 metre high rock.

It rains all the …

... We hire a guide and the guy is super interesting. He used to be Chief of the Temple and is super proud to show us a picture of himself welcoming Queen Elizabeth in Kandy in the 80's. His Dad also welcomed her somewhere in the late 50's (how old is the lady????), other picture to show. It is a beautiful temple, even the girls were interested and said it was cool (pheww!). We wander the markets, Michael buys some old elephant bells in an antic shp, the girls some old silver ...

... the art of making happy and unexpected discoveries

Serendip, a name used by the Muslims for Sri Lanka, and the root of the word serendipity. No real reason for the title, I just thought it sounded nice!
Today was a bit of a leap for Georgina and I, although it may not seem it to you. We opted to get one of the brightly coloured buses to Pinewalla Elephant Sanctuary. This was a bit daunting; buses depart from many places in town, few have numbers, even fewer ...

I love Kandy!

... can't wait to show you all the pictures. The temple was beautiful and very humbling. After the temple I tried to buy my dad some stamps at the post office but he looked at me like I was crazy, so I will have to try again at another post office. Then we went to the queens hotel for a cup of tea, and then through to the locals market. Laura had developed a blister on her foot by then so we found another restaurant and sat down for a drink and something to eat. Laura got an ice ...

    Nice hotel over looking suburbs and the hills. Monkeys in the trees around the hotel. We stayed in room 103 which has a fantastic view through the large windows over the hills. Lovely to wake up too. Breakfast it a bit thrown together and can be cold. Dinner is nice. Booked a couple of trips from here which were good. Hotel is a bit noisy with thing walls and doors. doesn't mater much. Overall a good hotel.
