    Citrus hotel Waskaduwa

    April 24, 2017 in Sri Lanka ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Today we woke up around 6 for a small walk around the big game camping site in the national park as it was just on the boarder of it. Afterwards we had a cooking demonstration on making Dal and Sambula which I'll definitely be making when I get home!! We then stopped of at the elephant transit home for their midday feeding before having a 4 and a half hour drive to where we are now! Had some fun in the pool and just getting ready to grab some food!

    Today we went to the safari, we saw everything that was there apart from the leopard! We saw elephants, wild dogs, alligators, buffalo and a few smaller aminals! We are now chilling with a few drinks outside our tents! Too hot as we got used to the climate in nU Elle

    Yesterday we trekked the Horton plains, which were incredible, we woke up at 5 am to get there for 6am, which was incredible with all the mist! It took around 4 hours to complete and we went to 'worlds end' and 'minis world end'! We had a nap when we got home then went to afternoon tea in the grand hotel nu Elle! And then the Thai restaurant!

    Thilanka hotel in Kandy

    April 20, 2017 in Sri Lanka ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Today we went to a gem factory and museum, I ended up buying a elephant pendant with moonstone and a white sapphire in it with the band included, which is lovely! Faye went back to try persuade her fiancé to get an emerald 😂😂 a few people bought some bits! Not photos though as it was prohibited! But it was amazing seeing how they cut the stones and learn how they find them in Sri Lanka! We then we to the botanical gardens which were absolutely amazing, so glad we went! Now just having a relaxed afternoon before the tea plantation and a 5 hour train journey 😫( but the bus is taking our bags so at least we don't have to carry them!!!!)Read more

    Thilanka hotel

    April 20, 2017 in Sri Lanka ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Yesterday we went to the spice garden, where I got some spiced tea, aloe Vera gel and some oils for my hair! Then we had a break in the afternoon before going to see some traditional Sri Lankan dances which were incredible but I think we found the hottest room ever!!! Then we went to the temple of the tooth for the evening blessing and offering, we felt a bit intrusive while people were trying to get to the tooth to give heir offerings and we were in their way! But it was absolutely incredible.Read more

    We went polonnaruwa the day before yesterday and sigiriya rock! Even though little kids were walking past us on the way up! Polonnaruwa was incredible, we hired bikes and went around that way! However my pants ripped and got worse throughout the day!!Read more
