Hot Air Balloon in Mallorca

It’s Mallorca Monday and I have a really great experience to share with you… Hot air ballooning in Mallorca. Last week, for the first time ever I went in a hot air balloon. And I loved loved loved it. The weather in Mallorca had been a bit iffy and the day we were actually supposed […]

Breakfast in Sri Lanka

Breakfast in Sri Lanka is an elaborate affair and can consist of many filling dishes to set you off for the day. While western-style breakfasts with eggs, toast and those anaemic-looking chicken sausages are widely available, it is the true Sri Lankan-style breakfast that will get your tastebuds going.

Buses in Sri Lanka

Every terrifying thing you’ve heard about the buses in Sri Lanka is true. I originally drafted this post right after I’d got off a bus in Sri Lanka so I could share my experience before I got on the next bus the next day and risked my life again…

Sigiriya and Pidurangala

Sigiriya and Pidurangala are two rocks in Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle, and I had it very clear that I wanted to take on the challenge of conquering both on the same day… Most people that visit Sri Lanka have heard of Sigiriya: The Lion’s Rock.

Tuk Tuk to Sigiriya Rock

Man it was hot when we stayed in Habarana. The day we went to Sigiriya Rock it seemed hotter than ever. To be fair, we’d only been in the country for about two and a half days, but it was definitely the hottest day yet. Well, apart from that first evening in Colombo… Anyway…

Where to Eat in Habarana

Well this isn’t going to be a very long post! If you are looking for places to eat in Habarana then the chances are you are staying there for a few days while you visit Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle.

    Off to Find Komodo Dragons!

    We were finally setting off on quite an adventure to hopefully catch a glimpse of the Komodo Dragons, found in the wild only in Komodo National Park in Indonesia. We were in Labuan Bajo on Flores Island and the day before we had contracted a boat and a local crew to take just me and […]

    Beneath Mallorca’s Surface – The Cova Tancada

    Did you know that this cave, the Cova Tancada, existed in the north of Mallorca, near Alcudia? Cova Tancada means the closed cave, and is one of Mallorca’s real treasures and best kept secrets, with huge dramatic underground chambers that just keep opening up and seem to go on forever.

    The Whole Rainforest Blog

    Searching for tarantulas on the night trek, being almost abducted by an over-friendly orangutan, sleeping in the open-air on an Indonesian river boat, and having the time of our lives in the jungle… These are just a few things that I have shared with you on this rainforest blog.

    Why Stay On A Klotok For Three Nights

    Okay, this is why stay on a klotok for three nights as opposed to two or four, not why stay on a klotok for three nights (or any number of nights for that matter) at all. Why would you choose to stay on a klotok in Kalimantan for three nights instead of two nights?

    Where to Eat in Labuan Bajo

    Just as with hotels in Labuan Bajo, the pickings are also slim for restaurants in Labuan Bajo. There is one little gem that stands out though and it’s actually an Italian restaurant! Normally I try to eat at and recommend local cuisine and local places,

    Tuk Tuk Drivers in Sri Lanka

    You’ve got to be a bit careful with the tuk tuk drivers in Sri Lanka. Well, you’ve got to be a bit careful with tuk tuk drivers anywhere, I suppose. In Sri Lanka though the tuk tuk drivers have earned themselves a reputation of being crooks and for swindling tourists.

    Before I left for Sri Lanka I did plenty of research about where to stay in Habarana and where to stay in Sri Lanka in general, because I knew that we would be booking accommodation as we went along rather than in advance.

    How to get from Colombo to Habarana

    Back in Spain, before we even set off for Sri Lanka, I stressed myself out about how to get from Colombo to Habarana. I read so many conflicting reports about whether or not the 06:05am train from Colombo to Habarana does or does not exist and found a whole network of buses with no timetable.

    Colombo

    In my opinion there’s only one reason to stay in Colombo and that’s because you need a place to rest your weary head after back to back long-haul flights before you set off the next day on your real Sri Lanka adventure.
