Well. We made it to the beach and it's perfect. Emmie says it's her best beach ever and we walked around the bay, swam all afternoon and ate pizza and drank lassis. We then walked back to the hotel for a swim in the pool - we are the only ones in this hotel! And it's amazing, our room has two walls...

I literally jumped into the pool with my SLR to snap this while Emmie was floating. The sun was fading and it was almost time to wander back through the bush to our bungalow. Today we leave for our next stop- the coast! We've left our run a bit late though, the season ends in April and the surf is g...

Morning craft on the deck of the bungalow which was much more fun than the algebra we are doing now, although I've introduced Shopkins instead of paddle pop sticks which seems to be helping the enthusiasm (up to 1 from 0) @jetwinghotels . . . . . . #srilanka #traveltime #traveltheworld #openmyworld...

This morning we sat out the front of our little bungalow eating Sri Lankan curry and coco pops and staring at the green rice paddies and changing colours of the mountains. We listened to peacocks cry and birds squeak and the sound of the creek as it flowed just in front of us. We watched squirrels p...

Just stay in the field and twirl for three hours okay? I'm exhausted! I've run out of energy. Having a child every minute of every day is so full on and I'm pretty sure I'm burnt out. I used to be able to survive the high energy and general six and seven year-old testing/naughtiness and still have p...

We are trekking off now to our hotel with aircon and a pool. Whoo hoo. A quick tuk tuk ride to the bus station where we will wait for a bus to Welawaya to come past. After that it's an hour on the road, another tuk tuk and we should be there. Very easy travel day today! This is another pic from Ped...

Haha I forgot to tell you about this temple visit. I saw the entrance as we drove past in a tuk tuk and asked the driver to take us up. It was deserted apart from a few monkeys who looked us over as we walked past and we eventually found out way up to the top on scorching ground (no shoes) which is...

This is the stunning view out from the Pedro Tea Estate in Nuwara Eliya where we found out where my morning cuppa comes from (no coffee for days, I'm seriously pining). It's such a beautiful spot - the colours, the coolness and the quietness of the mountains and valleys filled with shiny green tea t...

Emmie taking the last few steps to the top of Sigiriya, the incredible rock-top ancient fort and palace in Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle. Her @kathmandugear backpack was a farewell gift from her school friends when we left Australia 15 months ago and it's going strong even though each day it is pack...

We've written all about our love of Sri Lanka train travel in our new blog post ???????? This is our favourite spot on the train - sitting in the doorway, bare feet dangling and occasionally getting whipped by weeds with Emmie resting her head on my shoulder. I have one arm around her and one arm h...

Track walking back to Ella station from the Nine Arches Bridge. It took about 30 minutes and we practiced quickly getting off a few times...just in case!! Even though the trains give warning whistles and you can hear them coming, it still seems a bit dangerous to be walking along the tracks. ???? Bu...

Here we are after our big hike yesterday up Little Adam's Peak and then to the Nine Arches Bridge. Today has been an enforced rest day with lots of sleeping as my foot heals from that random blister infection. It's still covered but it's stopped spreading and the monster blister is retreating. ?????...

So excited to share this little vid Emmie and I made about her fun in the vege patch at @jetwinghotels St Andrew's and Oatlands properties. ⭐️????⭐️ St Andrew's has a huge organic fruit and vegetable garden that supplies 30 percent of the hotels' needs - and Emmie was so happy to pick dinner with th...

Random lizard shot ???? but just look at this gorgeous chameleon Emmie spotted near the Nine Arches Bridge. We took a pic then let him be, and when we looked for him later we found him on a branch - all green! ???????? So so cool! ???? . . . . . . . #srilankadaily #wanderlust #gapyear #happydays #b...
