What a bloody amazing holiday!!!
I made up my own itinerary with the help from the people on here and it was absolutely fantastic!!!
I'll be posting reviews of the places we stayed, the places we ate and where we went etc later today...
But firstly, thanks to everyone on TA who made it possible and thanks to Dave (worldtravellerguy) for putting us in contact with a world class driver (Jally). The driver gave us the space we needed when we wanted to do things ourselves and was there to help us when we needed help. He never tried to take us to hotels we didn't want to stay and yet was able to offer us recommendations when the hotels we visited weren't as good/clean as we thought they would be. A fantastic chap!!
We stayed at some great hotels/cabanas too, Coconut Beach Cabanas in Tangalle is brilliant, right on the beach, only 4 cabanas, so a great "homely" atmosphere and they were only finished in December so they are brand spanking new and immaculately finished!!
The washing machine has just finished it's first wash so I'll be back when I've got another load going!!!
