    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.

    Kandy : A Train, A Town & A Tooth

    A travel blog entry by sophie.morris on Oct 09, 2015

    ... They said they were heading out for dinner and although I wasn't going to eat, I went along anyway. Turns out, they had all met in Colombo a few days before and so had planned the next weeks travels already. Unfortunately, it wasn't the direction that I wanted to head, so I missed the boat there but never mind. It was nice to see a few people and chat for an hour or so.

    When I got back to the hostel, I booked my stay in Ella for one night on Sunday (I'll book the train ...

There also was a quiet section of river where we all jumped out of our rafts and floated downstream for approx. 600m. After returning to our rafts we finished our trip soaking wet but with big smiles on our faces. In the late afternoon some members of our group took part in an optional jungle walk. Tonight we have a BBQ dinner by the ...

    ... Went out to eat in the evening and got ripped off for drinks, again. Asked for juice, got beer. Language barriers eh?

    Following day was spent arguing over the memory card virus. There's probably more important things to life but it would be nice to be able to keep up with Travelpod. I know some of you prefer pics to text. Liza thinks she's now fixed it. I might just go out and see.

    Pictures to follow. Maybe.

    ... but was actually one of the highlights of our trip. The trick to standing up it seems is to stay near the carriage doors as they remain open during the journey providing you with an envious view and a generous breeze. Jen adapted best to our situation, sitting down in the doorway with her feet sticking out over the valleys below. I stood behind gazing out through the doorway as trees became beaches became waves became hills and valleys. I felt as though I was living in an ...

    ... of bone, hair, cloth or even his toothbrush. Wanneer we de tempel verlaten blijkt de oude Peugeot van Sakula dienst te weigeren. De wagen wordt terug in gang geduwd en de vader rijdt ermee terug naar huis. De broer van een vriend komt ons halen met zijn Nissan Micra en brengt ons naar Kandy. Onderweg stoppen we nog even in een theefabriekje waar ze ons het proces van blaadjes tot theekopje uitleggen. Aan de rand van Kandy gaan we nog snel even iets eten in een ...
