    We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Our kids were extremely happy because the internet was great--the first hotel in Sri Lanka that we could say that about. The food was good, the beds were comfy, the staff were all really friendly. We even had visitors on our balcony--monkeys. We enjoyed watching them, but we were also told to keep our doors closed because they would come inside if we didn't. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and the view was lovely.

    Beautiful location. Comfortable stay. Just 2 things that makes me not give any rating better than 3. 1. Lack of additional blankets owing to full capacity in the hotel, not acceptable 2. Not so great food.

    ... to get the hell out of dodge and go back downstairs. There, we found some other rooms, with scriptures and books apparently dating back 2000 years. Throughout this trip, I’m starting to wonder how much of the history is fact and how much is hearsay or belief. Either way, experiencing the scrum of the tooth relic was an experience to behold; not for the pictures and not for viewing the tooth relic, but to experience the atmosphere and the zeal that that ...

    We are told when we check out of the hotel that if we need to buy anything we should do it before 2pm in case the shops close and Kingsley decides to get ...

    ... and practically ran back out the door to find some food and, ideally, a cold beer. We came across Chill, which basically screamed middle class hippy... AND THEY SOLD MOTER FLIPPIN BURGERS!!! After endless dishes of curry, neither of us had ever been happier to see a burger (yes, they had a veggie burger). The chips were also perfection, and we got our beers. Heck, we went absolutely mental and bought puddings. What a treat eh! The only thing that could top that off ...

    ... it's a 4.5 hour journey. The train goes pretty slow, some areas have a speed limit of 8km/h and they probably top out at 30 km/h. After 1 stop our cart was full of locals and we gave up our seats to an elderly man and a new mother. We said good bye to our personal space bubble and cuddled up with everyone. The train is bumpy, hot and loud. Eventually I made my way to the junction between two carts and sat in the door way with my feet dangling outside the train. What an experience. ...

    ... if you're ever this way. Not just for a good reason to escape the city! It's full of beautifully sculpted lawns and tree collections, with a spice garden, cactus house, orchid house etc. Lots of 'avenues' of special palm trees to walk though, big old fig trees sprawling branches in every direction.

    Happy to be leaving Kandy, we had decided to spend our last two weeks at the beach - a little of a holiday if you will, before returning home to face reality. ...
