Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya

... the other foreigners. It took us to get to the village of Nanu Oya, which is situated approx. 6 km from Nuwara Eliya, almost 4 hours.

The train journey from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya is famous for its gorgeous views. Valleys, tea plantations, mountains…as far as an eye could see shades of green were absolutely dominating.

After getting off the train in Nanu Oya we went to take a local bus. In the bus we met a German guy called Sören. Later when we went to ...

A relative lie in today was welcome, and still neither of us have plucked up the courage to have curry for breakfast. Sri Lankan curry blows your mouth off any time of day and that's just not how I want to start things off. Our guide picked us up at 9am and took us on a breathtaking journey to Mackwood's tea plantation. On the way, we strategically started a conversation about naming conventions in our countries and how ...

Kirigalpotta - Kings of the Night Mail

... are not allowed to camp at the summit. So you need to come down and camp at one of the 3 campsites at Horton Plains. A permit for an overnight camping stay costs just over 2500/- bucks. But you also need to have luck on your side. Only one party is allowed at a camping site. And we were lucky.

Next came the route mapping. We had two options. We could have taken the Night Mail to Badulla and gotten off at Pattipola or we could’ve gotten off at Ohiya. Either way, ...

... sun-kissed and salty, and headed back to our place. Soon we were on our way to the waterfall, led by Chami. Originally we expected to be done within the hour; by the time we rolled in later that evening, we'd been gone for five. On Chami's recommendation, we took a detour to visit a moonstone mine. We soon escaped the hustle of the town, and as the traffic thinned out I began to understand all those petrol-heads who passionately enthuse about finding the ...

Climbing, monkeys, and learning when to be quiet!

... leading up to the top, made of marble, which wins prizes for its longevity, but is very slippery when covered in rain. On our descent back to the bottom, my shopping instinct kicked in again, and I haggled for a magic box, then our driver took us to a wood carving shop, and after a quick chemistry lesson - the natural paint they use is made from the bark of a tree, which goes one colour when they add lime juice, and another when chalk is added. ...

    We stayed in 2 rooms. The room upstairs was dark & dusty. The one downstairs slightly brighter, but noisy hotel staff disturbed our sleep at night. Food on the other hand was quite good. I had the tastiest freshly-made garlic soup here. The cook who was also the waiter was generous in his servings. The owner on the other hand was a bit of a stiff neck. For USD60 per night, it's not worth staying here.
