Wednesday 20th September 2017 Day 6 – Lost for words

Another early departure from Arugam Bay which was such a nice, hipster town with good shopping, restaurants and most importantly surfing! We will certainly be back in the near future. Having travelled a long way yesterday without stopping, almost every Tuk needs fuel so we all convoy to one small station just outside town and … Continue reading Wednesday 20th September 2017 Day 6 – Lost for words

Tuesday 19th September 2017 Day 5 – The Wild, Wild East!

More than 100km’s to travel today and two scheduled stops along the way. The beach is beautiful in Pasikuda and no one to be seen as far as I can focus along the white fine sand.

The first 10 km’s from the hotel was a dirt track with huge potholes and a constant stream of trucks and tractors … Continue reading Sunday 17th September 2017 Day 3 – It’s a bumpy ride

Saturday 16th September 2017 Day 2 – Roads less travelled

Just to note the Tuk’s only travel at a max speed of 60km’s p/h. As we … Continue reading Saturday 16th September 2017 Day 2 – Roads less travelled
