Trip: Starting in Sri Lanka

There are [55] stories from my trip: Starting in Sri Lanka

Chiang Mai 8th - 13th

THAILAND | Saturday, 13 Feb 2016 | Views [308]

We arrived in Chiang mai about 7am and headed for our hostel which was called City Capsule Hostel. The man who runs it was so lovely and so helpful organising trips and taxis for us and giving us recommendations for things to do. We had booked our cooking ... Read more >

Bangkok - 5th - 7th February

THAILAND | Sunday, 7 Feb 2016 | Views [282]

Sadly the bus didnt serve dinner at all, just a sachet of coffee (with no hot water) and a banana muffin. The trip was long and not the comfiest, but it was so cheap so you can't really complain. On the plus side I absolutely love Bangkok, it is everything ... Read more >

Koh Lanta - 2nd - 4th February

THAILAND | Thursday, 4 Feb 2016 | Views [239]

Koh Lanta was pretty uneventful. The ferry across took about an hour and a half and was fine and we spent the afternoon on the beach near our hostel which was called M hostel. The hostel was nice enough, when we arrived they gave us these green sweets ... Read more >

Koh Phi Phi - 31st January - 1st February

THAILAND | Monday, 1 Feb 2016 | Views [310]

We got to Phi Phi about half 4 after a fairly long and painful journey where we thought we were going to miss our ferry because the bus company had a mess up with the buses. We had to run for the ferry but it was fine because it was waiting for us. When ... Read more >

Koh Phangan and Koh Tao 25th - 31st January

THAILAND | Sunday, 31 Jan 2016 | Views [280]

Sorry for the slow update, we've got terrible wifi in Koh Tao. We got up and packed ready to get the ferry to Koh Tao on the 25th it when we got there we were told that the waves were too big so it was going to be delayed for two hours. It was raining ... Read more >

Koh Phangan 23rd -24th January

THAILAND | Monday, 25 Jan 2016 | Views [253]

The full moon party was on the 23rd. It's basically a massive party on the beach that is held here every full moon, its quite famous and is the main reason people come to Koh Phangan. It was really fun and we'd heard that a lot of people get pickpocketed ... Read more >

Koh Phangan 21st - 23rd January

THAILAND | Saturday, 23 Jan 2016 | Views [265] | Comments [2]

  We spent the 22nd in Haad rin, shopping and on the beach. The beach and the sea was so lovely and I can already see why people end up staying in Thailand for longer than they plan to. It's so chilled here, everyone is really friendly and its ... Read more >

From Sri Lanka to Koh Phangan

THAILAND | Thursday, 21 Jan 2016 | Views [411] | Comments [2]

We are currently sat on our second plane of the day over half way through our very long travel day. So far so good. We've had a few hiccups - taking the wrong shuttle bus from Bangkok to Don Meuang and a bit of a dodgy stomach - but it just meant we ... Read more >


SRI LANKA | Wednesday, 20 Jan 2016 | Views [432]

We arrived in Negombo about half 1 so the journey - despite some horrible traffic - wasn't as long as expected. We checked into the hotel - Sahasra - which is quite nice, the bathroom is utter luxury compared to what we're used to but still only three ... Read more >

Sigiriya and Dambulla

SRI LANKA | Sunday, 17 Jan 2016 | Views [408] | Comments [2]

We left the hotel about 11 to make our way to climb Dambulla Rock stopping on the way at a spice garden. In the spice garden they grow all sorts like cardamom, cocoa, coffee, cinamon, cloves, pepper and more that I can't even remember. He took us round ... Read more >


SRI LANKA | Sunday, 17 Jan 2016 | Views [543]

We left the hotel around 10 after having breakfast - we each had a thin omelette, a slice of pineapple, a banana and some bread. The bread here is always served stale which is so odd. The roads were really windy again which again made everyone feel ... Read more >

Ella and Nuwara Eliya

SRI LANKA | Thursday, 14 Jan 2016 | Views [464]

Checking out of the hotel was a blinking nightmare. We went down to do it and no one had any idea how much we had to pay and they didn't speak very good English. We sat waiting for a while and then they called the owner who must have been away for a ... Read more >

Tissamaharama and Ella

SRI LANKA | Wednesday, 13 Jan 2016 | Views [441]

We left Unawatuna about half 9 and arrived at tissa around 3ish - it was a very long drive. Thank God for air con. We arrived at the guest house which was nice - very quiet as it was just us staying. We spent an hour or so there and the owners made us ... Read more >

Unawatuna, Galle and Mirissa

SRI LANKA | Monday, 11 Jan 2016 | Views [447]

On the 10th Our driver Ashan -pronounced Hey-sian - picked us up from our hostel about 9ish and we started the long drive down to Unawatuna. We paid him 20,000 rupees (about £100) for the next 10 days to drive us on our route and make recommendations ... Read more >


SRI LANKA | Sunday, 10 Jan 2016 | Views [356]

Hi Mum! So we have arrived safe and sound on Friday at about 2.30, flight was a bit delayed but it was fine. Very long flight but there were some good films so it wasn't all bad. Amy was very excited about the flight, she said it was the best she's ... Read more >
