De reis verloopt tot nu toe nog niet helemaal vlekkeloos, maar het vanaf nu alleen maar beter worden denken we dan maar! Het blijkt dat het tegenwoordig verplicht is (ook bij het vertrek uit NL) om je reisschema uitgeprint mee te hebben. Gelukkig konden we de Nederlandse beambte overtuigen dat we echt weer terug komen en wilde de meneer van de KLM …
Now down to my underpants I woke up thinking how many people must have drifted by me in the middle of the night thinking me odd? Met a couple and went for breakfast with them until my room was ready. They gave me the lowdown of my surrounds and from that I felt pretty much set. Eventually I got to dump my things and get a proper kip in, seeing as I …
What LP says: Negombo is a modest beach town located close to Bandaranaike International Airport. In many ways it is a more salubrious introduction to the country than Colombo, and it’s a pleasant alternative to the monster traffic into and through the capital. In fact, some budget-conscious sun seekers just stay here, although doing this …
Its fair to say we were very very pleased to land in Colombo just after 4:00 am. As we walked through immigration we had several stores trying to sell us washing machines, hoovers and other white or electrical goods you could ever want to lay your hands on, very handy.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMarine Tourist Guest House Negombo
There was some confusion on arrival about our room and we were given a rather strange layout of a room on the top floor; there was an empty unfinished room in front of the bedroom. After one night, we were moved to a room on the first floor. My only complaint about this room is the glass bathroom - there are curtains but it's just plain strange. The TV did not work for the entire length of our stay (one week). You can use the pool in the hotel over the road for not a lot of money. The family that run this hotel are very lovely people and we were even invited for a traditional Sri Lankan meal on one of the evenings. The hotel is in stages of being upgraded and when it's finished, if they get it right, it will be a lovely hotel.
