    With tickets in hand, and a guide (Dilak) amongst our ranks, we were ready for the off and straightaway Dilak was identifying birds at a distance just from their silhouette. The range was pretty impressive but I wont go on to list them all. It wasn’t just about the birds either. We got so close to a wild elephant it was unbelievable. This one was apparently 43 years old so the same age as me, and with no tusks, it looked like this ...

    ... well they are looked after here. Feeding time was 12.30 and soon in the distance we saw a trail of nellies and their excited trumpeting sounds in anticipation of their meal. The first elephant to come through the gate was the smallest of the lot, he was running and trumpeting to the volunteer ladies who held out a funnel to pour milk into his mouth.

    ... doing it, but we got a ticket without any problems. In Uda Walawe, it is compulsory to have a guide, so we were also joined by a guide at this point.

    We made our way into the park and we immediately struck by how quiet the park was, both in terms of other jeeps and in terms of wildlife.

    ... to Ukraine. At this point, the penny drops, they're changing gauge! From our pre-trip research I knew that this would happen occasionally as we changed countries, but hadn't considered it until this point. We pull into a workshop for about an hour, whilst engineers change the gauge on our train then head back to passport control. Getting our passports back in hand is a good feeling! It also means we can go to bed finally. Roll on ...
