An Asian Excursion

Well I am back from an amazing holiday with my family to Sri lanka and Singapore. Sri Lanka is unbelievably rich in culture – ancient civilizations, wildlife, temples, monuments, carvings, textiles, gem stones – just to mention a few.  If you ever get the chance to visit – do – you will not be disappointed. The food is fantastic and the people warm, kind and welcoming.

Here is a taste of our trip......


Templeberg Villa. Fabulous colonial home in beautiful plantation surroundings owned and run by the lovely Karin, Swedish born kiwi.  http://templeberg.com/

 Breakfast – the traditional egg hoppers and buffalo curd – yum!

 Jungle Beach – the warmest sea I have ever bathed in.
















Elephants cooling down.




























Buddhist Temples and Statues.

.... and back to glorious Wellington with a bump!
