    ... the waves were huge. It was also great for swimming. It was a relaxing afternoon although I now may be extra hot tonight since I've now got a sunburn but I also have some aloe Vera so it's all good. In the evening we went to have Indian food in town. And I'm also happy to report I have a plan for next week and will be going on a tour of the central part of Sri ...

    ... had really lucked out on finding it. Good old tailor lady - AGAIN. We walked a short distance up the beach and settled on a restaurant which looked slightly fancy, but was popular with people.

The onboard entertainment consisted of a guy with a tambourine, another with a drum and a girl with a collection plate. Those happy clappy people get everywhere! A couple in nearby seats let Ruth fit her bag by their feet but for about two hours it seemed like every inch gained ...

    Lazy day and spa

    A travel blog entry by mariaobrien on Aug 09, 2014

    Most relaxing day so far. Late breakfast. Pool and relaxing. Spa on the afternoon where it took all of my being not to change Keith's appointment. "And your husband is booked in with a male therapist, is that ok?" Oh how I wanted to stay "Yeah fine" but I'm the one who'd have to listen to him moan about being violated! When Keith ...
