Negombo rains and jet-lag kicks in 

The plane journey from Heathrow to Abu Dhabi was pleasant enough but 7 hours watching movies  isn’t as fun as you would imagine. Flying into the capital Colombo we were greeted by a wave of humidity. I managed to negotiate a TukTuk at full price, skills, but £5 fee for a 30 minute journey north to Negombo is still super cheap.


Hotel, Jetwing Blue, and room were great. Just a shame it was overcast and rainy but hey we were just happy to be finally starting our year off adventure.

We filled the days with long walks along the beach, afternoon cocktails and evening curries.

Best curry so far was chicken and mango with coconut sambal from Lords restaurant. Also managed tick off number 1 from Ben’s world food challenge, Lion beer.

Should have had more than a couple as jet-lag kicked in and we lay awake until 5am.
