    The loft room is amazing however if you look hard there are some rough bits, the hotel is having some minor renovations lets hope the problems get resolved. The food is excellent but you may be sharing it with chipmunks and crows as some of the guests insist on feeding them this needs to be stopped. Facilities are second to none, a full gym, spa, two souvenir shops and large swimming pool.

    ... visiting form Colombo. From what Kelly has told me they were quite shocked by the hygiene of the place. , I gather that they are sponsors, they had a meeting with the bull dog matron Kelly happened to be there too so she she brought up the issue of cleaning. Matron says that the place gets clean four times a day, laughable. Hopefully some food will come from this. We have learned also that some of the workers have been working at the orphanage for 19, 12, 10 ...

    ... I have already indicated was on my "wishlist" or head straight up to the hill country of Kandy etc. as riding on the train with the special observation carriage on that line is another "must do" for me. Eventually, I had decided, more of less on a whim, to head South as I have enough time to visit all the areas mentioned above. The day before I had decided that Galle would be a nice place to have a look round (it certainly was, as ...

    Our last day with our guide Dhanu who has been fantastic. He has been with us throughout Sri Lanka and it was a shame to say good bye. We drove from the tea plantation to the coast for our final destination Koggala, Galle. We have never seen a highway so quiet and this road is great for heading to the coast. It took us around 6hrs but lots of stunning waterfalls and tea fields before the highway then a gorgeous coastal road for the final part. The resort ...

    ... to Galle with Teresia and Ludda. Galle is a very old Dutch fort in a town about 30 minutes north of here. We took the wild bus ride, and both Teresia and I arrived thoroughly car sick. The driving here is nuts. Everyone is in a constant race to pass one another. I'm still not sure of blowing the horn means "hello", "watch out", or the most likely "move before I run you over". The lanes lines are mere suggestions as the 2 lanes turn into a mesh of cars, buses, trucks, tuk ...

    ... house (Handagedara Guest House); once we consulted with the store owner and one other taxi drive as to the location. Most of these places just provide their name and the road they are on and not much more, so if it’s not a popular place they drivers don’t necessarily know it. It’s was no more than 5 minutes away and he only had to stop once to confirm he was going the right way and arrived at another beautiful home with ...
