Sri Lanka pt8 – Time to go

By | November 29th, 2006|Sri Lanka, Travel|

…. I’M IN A GLASS CAGE OF EMOTION!!! That’s it, all done at travelers, one more night then off to Thailand. Don’t think I’ve ever been this nervous about anything, actually feel quite sick … but I doubt you wanted to know that. Just said goodbye to Samie, she’s off home and now I’m on [...]

Sri Lanka pt7 – Back to Ja Ela

By | November 23rd, 2006|Sri Lanka, Travel|

Hello once again ladies & gents, boys and girls. As I sit writing this, watching rangers score a last minute winner over Cardiff (had to get that in! It was on TV too so everyone could see it, HA!) … I am once again back in Ja Ela, having arrived back in Sri Lanka yesterday [...]

Sri Lanka Pt6 – Hikkaduwa and India

By | October 12th, 2006|Sri Lanka, Travel|

Six weeks are up, off to India on Sunday. Pretty much ready to leave, think 6 weeks was about right. Dunno if I’ll stick out 6 weeks in India though, might try to get to Thailand a week or so earlier than originally planned. Suppose that’s a bit naïve, India could be awesome. So carrying [...]

Hi, Five weeks today I've been away now. Strange how this time it seems to have gone so much quicker than last year in SA. So carrying on from last Thursday, in the evening I went to coach at the men's club. I didn't exactly do a lot of coaching, more watching of the other [...]

Sri Lanka Pt4 – School football tournament and the Cultural Triangle

By | September 28th, 2006|Sri Lanka, Travel|

As I write this I am in a great deal of pain having been gang raped, bitten, by a monstrous group of mozzies! My back currently looks like an unfinished dot to dot. I?ve told the local police but they said they can do very little as the gang have very few distinguishable features and [...]

Sri Lanka Pt2 – A visit to Kandy

By | September 12th, 2006|Sri Lanka, Travel, Travel Diary|

Captains log, star date 333679669.6 .... been here almost two weeks now, which is quite sad in a way as I'm a third of the way through my Sri Lanka placement. Not to say they haven't been an amazing two weeks. I've really taken to Sri Lanka and its people, cant really say I've missed [...]
