    ... therefore stick to country roads. Well, I have to be honest, I didn't mind much this particular morning... After two and a half hours of breezing through ever greener and more lush tropical scenery, we turned off the motorway, and immediately I was definitely in Sri Lanka. Tuk-Tuks, lots of hooting, colourful clothes, brightly painted fishing boats under palm trees, and my first glance of the turquoise sea, rolling up on a golden sandy beach. I had arrived in my first destination, ...

    Travelling to Unawatuna

    ... changed and went out to explore the area. Within two minutes of exploring, we were in love. I'd found a real life coffee shop, again. Sold. Annie had found a beautiful art shop, and a great jewellery store. Sold. And Nai had found a store which sold handmade leather bags. Sold. What more could one town hold? We then continued our walk to satisfy our growling stomachs, and found the beach. This beach was one of the best we found in Sri Lanka, and this was made better by the ...

    Today was a Poya Day, they have one every full moon, it is a national holiday. No one can sell alcohol, oh dear! We were up at 4am, this was the day we were to have a morning (early morning) safari in Yala National Park. Now I am very sceptical about seeing such advertised animals as Leopards, the blurb even reminds us that they are very rarely seen. I actually wonder if there are any! We set of at five in a safari jeep, driven by a young Sri ...

    ... 100 per night with breaky a real treat for the end of our trip. The hotel even has two'ppols! Went out for dinner around 7pm and it is deserted. There are the few odd people walking about but there must be too many tourists here. Went to same place we had lunch and ordered garlic naan, 1/4 tandoori chicken, mutton (goat) curry which was supposed to be there hottest, ahloo (potato) masala and chicken Biriyani (which wasn't like what we were expecting) came out with rice that had ...
