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.

Rampart rambling and Hikkaduwa hiking – SL#16.

Roll up, roll up ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls (although I hope no children are subjected to this) and prepare yourselves for another great two for one offer brought to you exclusively by fergysrambles.org. I am your friendly global purveyor of world-class nonsense by appontment to nobody except the haematologist, the hepatologist, the opthalmic surgeon etc. Sorry, wait a moment, that is having appointments with, not by appointment to, I got confused.

I shall now pre-empt the next two questions of my long-suffering regulars, the answers to which are no and now. The questions obviously were, “Is he drunk or stoned” and “When is he going to drive us mad with that ‘go back to the start’ link”?

If any new readers have not yet left in complete bafflement as to what this is about, it is a regular practice of mine to inform people like your good selves that this is one of a series of posts about a three month trip to Sri Lanka in early 2014 and I start each one by telling the world at large that it will all make more sense if you read from the beginning which you can do here.

If any of you are still there, please do read on, I enjoy the company!

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside – SL#14.

Hello to one and all, welcome back to the 14th edition of my series about a trip to Sri Lanka for three months in the early part of 2014 and I’ll get it out of the way early by telling new readers that they may want to start at the beginning of the story which they can do here.

Now that that is out of the way, my regular readers will remember that in the previous post I promised you a day-trip and a day-trip you shall have. Please feel free to read on.
