Travel Blogs from Ella

The tuk-tuk driver who called me Elenka

A travel blog entry by jackdrury

This is a top pick!

... they had any rooms available. She got no response. When we arrived we'd simply gone on a willy-nilly search for the place.

The driver told us that he was a friend of the guesthouse owner we had written to, that the place was full, and that he would take us to a different hotel. This whole scenario was as peculiar as hell. It's common for Asian cab drivers and touts to poach incoming travellers so they can take them to a place where they'll get a ...

Safari and tea plantations

A travel blog entry by junglebelle


... she stopped about 3 metres from us - our hearts were racing! I'm sure she could have easily turned our jeep if she'd wanted to. I guess she simply didn't want to be watched any more by us??

So the last hour of the journey was in darkness. And it was cold. We finally arrived into Ella station at 7pm. 2 hours late. There were lots of tuk tuk drivers waiting and we were soon off towards our guesthouse. I really enjoyed the train ride. Even though it was rather long!! Ella ...

Mountains Galore - day 7

A travel blog entry by lynnd99


... heavens Edge) is breathtaking but unfortunately the pool is out if order. We were duly informed before we arrive so weren't too disappointed but it would have been a gorgeous view from the pool. Off for a nature walk up to little Adams peak, just to discover the walking up stair muscles. The view from the top was amazing but would be more spectacular if there wasn't a cloud haze. We could see the road that we would be descending along tomorrow winding along the ...
