Walking the rails – SL#34.

Welcome everyone to another post in my series about a 2014 trip to Sri Lanka and I know I say this at the top of every entry but I really do mean it. I am genuinely amazed at the response I have had to my efforts and the lovely comments I have received so thank you all.

I shall make my usual comment here for new readers which is that if they wish to read the entire piece from the beginning, it all starts here.

I had left you the last time with me “stranded” in Ella in the highlands of Uva Province and doing not very much of anything really except eating and drinking rather too much beer, so you’ll be glad to know that in this post I get to do something interesting. Admittedly, it is a stupid and potentially dangerous something but it is interesting. I can almost hear the collective voice of my readership saying, “What on Earth is he going to do now”?

Busy doing nothing (again) – SL#32.

Hello again and welcome to yet another instalment of my trip to Sri Lanka in the early part of 2014, my first trip there but by no means my last and there will be more if long-haul travel is ever again an option for me.

A quick word to new readers, if you wish to read the whole story of this trip then you can start here.

‘Ello Ella – SL#30.

Greetings to everyone and welcome as always to another post in my series regarding my three month trip to Sri Lanka in early 2014 which I hope you are enjoying reading as much as I am enjoying writing it.

I can scarcely believe this is the 30th post already and I am only about half way through the journey but it is bringing back some wonderful memories of my first time in that superb country and passing the time when I am more or less unable to leave the house due to virus restrictions.

A quick word to new readers, who I am very gratified to note seem to be appearing from time to time and which is that if you wish to read the whole story from the beginning, you can do it here.

It’s time for Tissa – SL#28.

Hello there everybody and welcome to yet another post in my Sri Lanka 2014 trip which is turning into a bit of an odyssey, isn’t it? I’ll bet Homer didn’t take as long to write his and I am not even half way through yet but I suppose a three month journey where I saw, did and learned so much was always going to be a bit of a challenge. At least it is giving me an interest in these difficult times when travel is but a distant memory.

I’ll get my standard advice oute of the way and then we can get on and the advice to new readers (a special welcome to you) is that if you want to read the whole story from the beginning you can do so here.

Sea, sun, sand, seafood and sadly tsunami – SL#25.

Good day one and all and a warm welcome to you, I really do appreciate you taking the time to read my efforts here. I’ll start with my usual word of advice that this post is one of a series about my Sri Lanka 2014 trip but you may well have guessed that from the title.

Sadly #25 does not indicate my 25th visit to that lovely country nor even that I was aged 25 when I was there – I wish! If you wish to read the story in it’s entirety you may do so here, and if you already have, then please read on.
