7 Days in Sri Lanka Day 4 – Mirissa

7 Days in Sri Lanka Day 4 – Mirissa

The southern coastal road from Unawatuna to Mirissa throws up spectacular scenes of village life, gorgeous beaches untouched by tourism, and fleeting glimpses of the iconic ‘stilt’ fishermen, who sit on sticks out in the water and fish, although the majority are now doing it to take advantage of tourism (they charge for photographs). We […]

The road to Angkor.  We walked out of the hotel and down the hot, dusty, noisy street, past Hard Rock Cafe Siem Reap (yes, it’s changed a bit this place – and this one is even more expensive than the one in Singapore!), and to Costa Coffee for a delicious ice latte, but not before […]

East Indonesia Day 7 – Gili Trawangan+Lombok

Woke at 9.  Went to Dream Divers to book a dive at 10am.  My first since last April in Sri Lanka.  Had breakfast at Tri Na Nog, then went diving.  The dive centre wanted me to do a refresher course, if it had been over 6 months since my last dive, but I lied and […]
