    A bit about me

    OK well about me I’m 32 live in Manchester and have lived in my current house for 7 years with my fella who I have been with for 8 years and now my son who we adopted 1 year ago. I have always had a passion for travel and I love travelling to different places each year I don’t often go back to a place as there is so much more to see in the world before you start going back to places. Up to now my favourite place has to be Sri Lanka that’s where I proposed to my fella 7000 feet above sea level in Kandy in the mountains was amazing. So I have worked in travel from leaving school when I was 16 and I could not imagine doing anything else, and what better way to see more places than to cruise wake up nearly every day in a different place or even a different country amazing!.

    One of my favourite places too . visited the Elephant orphanage which was amazing (I love elephants ) also visited a childrens orphanage where I took loads of sweets for them, they were so polite I wanted to bring them all home with me , A lot of poverty but found the people to be very friendly, I would love to go back but my husband cant do the long flights now so we do all our cruising from Southampton , but I don't mind , we have been very lucky and visited a lot of paces in the world.

      Well I did a weeks safari so I did got to see the elephant orphanage that was amazing and I also did an elephant safari in the jungle it was I have to say the best thing up to now I have ever done. I agree with you the poverty really shocked me but the people are so friendly it really does put things into prospective when you see it with your own eyes. Did you try the red bananas?

        Hi Paul and welcome to the forum and the cruise.dot team !

        I visited Sri Lanka about 30 years ago when the civil war was raging. I was in transit from South Africa to Thailand and the stopover hotel I stayed in was on the beach outside Columbo city and because there was no tourism then to speak of it was just me and the air crew in the hotel.

        Had a few hours to explore before the connecting flight and I thought it was a fascinating place with the people I met being friendly and not pushy. As I live in a coastal town here in the UK the thing I found strange though was there were no seagulls just crows everywhere.

        Would like to return there one day if I can and explore the northern Tamil area which was out of bounds then.

          Thanks for the welcome I think that part of the Island is still off limits as our tour guide told us that is where the terrorists are so you go at your own risk. Kandy is a must see place stunning is only one word to describe it and the tea plantations are fantastic to see and you must try a red banana.

            Oh dear ... I thought at the end of the war the terrorism threat had been eradicated but I guess some may have gone underground instead. What a shame as that could continue to threaten their tourist industry for years to come.
