        cozy place in a not so pretty town

        The King Fern Cottage is special in a way, that it is indeed a cozy and lovely place. You will enjoy sitting in the common room or find a place in the small but green patio. The host is a good soul and will be of good help. The internal restaurant is quite ok and a good choice.
        Our room, the 102 was not big and not that special but we still felt well and enjoyed our time here. The only negative point is that the mosquito net should be replaced. On the other hand there won't be many mosquitos in this place anyway. A positive point is the big bed that let us sleep well.
        (personal hint: stay here, make the Horton Plains tour and leave the town again soon)

        Great atmosphere at this tranquil hotel, a ten minute walk from the center of Nuwara Eliya. The rooms are spacious with thick blankets, which are a necessity for the chilly nights.

        Für eine Besichtigung der Horton Plains ist es ratsam sehr früh aufzubrechen und es ist schon, dass dies unserem Gastgeber und Minibus-Organisator ebenso bewusst ist. Zusammen mit zwei Franzosen und zwei Amerikanern steigen wir um fünf Uhr früh in ein Busschen und fahren eine Stunde lang in Richtung Nationalpark. Ich vermute die Fahrer des King …

        Wir haben in Ruhe ausgeschlafen und zusammen verpackt, um dann gehen 09:00 aufzubrechen. Der Zug war dann doch nicht so voll wie befürchtet so dass wir mit angenehmen Sitzplatz in Richtung nächstem Ziel holperten.

        In Nanuoya wurden wir abgeholt, was sich anfangs allerdings etwas schwierig herausstellte. Denn wir konnten zunächst kein …

        The view from there is more than worth the climb. We booked it for 3 to 4 days after checking out several other options. 59B Rest Lodge was certainly clean and pleasant but lacked the view we were after.

        This is superb hiking ...

I had vaguely developed a plan to get me to Unawatuna and it seemed easy enough- bus from airport to main bus station, then somehow get to the Maradana train station (before 15:30) to catch the last train to Galle and then take another bus to Unawatuna. yeah. Easy peasy. So Colombo is a MASSIVE city with slow moving traffic consisting of dogs, pedestrians, cycles, tuk ...

        ... most people and when I had occasion to ask locals in the bus if they had climbed Adam’s peak, generally speaking the answer was yes. It is said that this is the place Adam first set foot on earth but many religions other than catholic have found a meaning to make the pilgrim to the top.

        Upon return, we are cooked a delicious breakfast by our hosts and then it is onto our next destination on some bumpy bus ...
