      ... me as I stood wedged in the isle. "Is it not like this in England?", he asked! The brakes... Hell we knew he had them and at least they worked! Slaloming the roads was not enough, periodic testing was a great game, or maybe he just liked to watch us all lurch forward and then recoil in to each other. Kandy... 2 and a half hand squeezing, bicep bracing, core crunching hours later we arrive. My hands are black from grime and ...

      Day 5: Like any New Years day you appreciate a wee sleep in. Fortunately our next stop was only 1 hour up the road so we headed off at a respectable 9.30.

This was a lovely way to spend the morning and early afternoon, just watching people as they went about daily life, bathing in river and greeting kids who ...

We had a rather disappointing and very expensive ...

      After I had said goodbye to the Van der Poorten’s at their beautiful Plantation Home, it was a full hour before Nuwshad reached the northern town of Dambulla in the dry area of Sri Lanka. Dambulla is famous for its Royal Rock Temple caves carved into the side of a huge rock some 200m high.
