2,222 Stairs to Climb

A travel blog entry by stephaniehawks


I am out of shape. That's the first thing I need to note. Don't be fooled--I did not climb all the stairs--not because I was lazy, but because of my fear of heights. Lion Rock was an absolutely fascinating place to me despite the heat, and despite the physical requirements that it took to enjoy the view.

These are the kinds of ruins that …

Another funfilled day

Date 29 dec
Place - Kandy
Enroute - Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage
In Kandy - Temple of Tooth

Started from Colombo at 9:30am, much against the advice of the local. We should have started a little earlier, say around 6:30am so as to beat the traffic. We reached Pinnawala around 13:30. The number of elephants, the way they are …

Tired legs in a city.

A travel blog entry by beckeyjw

... and fairly used to going in many places anyway. Before we had got on the bus we had looked around one of the markets for a bit, mainly just some fruit shops. It was interesting being able to try the different fruits, but I'm not a fan of being hassled by most stalls to try their fruit, and buy stuff. I personally found Kandy rather overwhelming, I'm never very good in cities, and think even less so here, as they see us as tourists and think we all have a lot of money and ...

Finding my mojo on the way to Negombo

A travel blog entry by jackdrury

This is a top pick!

... Today, we take the 12:50 p.m. train to Colombo. We shelled out a few extra rupees for the inter-city express train. After paying, we learned that the fast track will take us only three hours to get there ... the whole 110 kilometres.

Real time: Horrible www connections have caused blog delays.
Elenka was weak kneed and I had a headache from the heat of our train car to Colombo. So we decided ...

    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.
