Temple of the Tooth
Excellent call on not taking the kids to the Temple of the Tooth, especially at prayer time. We barely coped with the crush of humanity, so I don't think the kids would have enjoyed it at all. Definitely worth experiencing at some point though, even if just for the unique Kandyan architecture. We struggled with finding eateries around the lake too... with so many people visiting the Temple, I thought there would have been heaps of restaurants and street stalls in the vicinity! I share Daniel and Millie's love for Sri Lankan fried noodles :)

Temple of the Tooth
Exactly our thoughts! With so many people around, you'd think there'd be plenty of eateries around. The kids were addicted to noodles! So good! :) I got addicted to curries and that incredible coconut sambol! Yum! Thankfully our taste buds got used to the heat in Sri Lankan dishes in no time at all and we could fully enjoy them. Loved the food! Temple of the Tooth next time for sure! Would love to go back to Sri Lanka and do a bigger loop around the country. One day :)

Traveling with Children
The two of you are great examples of how families can travel. You really have it figure out. Sorry you missed the elephant bath.

Travelling with Children
I wouldn't go as far as to say we have it all figured out... as there is always room for improvement. But we're slowly getting there, learning from our mistakes. Still don't know how we managed to miss the elephant bathing... next time!

Sri Lanka
Glad you made it safely with the kids and all the equipment. A nice balance of exploring and chilling.

Sri Lanka
Yes balance, that's our priority now! Trying to keep all four souls happy :)

Fishy business!
I'm very curious that you didn't mention the intense stench of the fish drying in the heat! :( Or maybe you are much hardier in that department than I am... because oh my goodness, it was *almost* unbearable. Looking forward to following the rest of your trip on the island :)

Fishy business!
To be honest I can't really remember the stench which is strange as my nose is quite sensitive... Too many things to concentrate on I guess - the heat, sweaty and very wriggly baby, trying not to drop camera in fish guts, not stepping in fish guts... I think I might have just blocked the rest... ;) Thanks for reading :)

You are a brave soul! Traveling with children looks impossible, but you make it sound easy. Sri Lanka will be a challenge...just like the spicy food, as you found out. Negombo is just that, a gateway. I know You will really enjoy Kandy.

I'm not as brave as you may think. Travelling with kids sometimes feels easier than the normal day-to-day life. Always something new around, you buy food instead of making it, no chores to do... Routine is a killer! ;) We did this trip half a year ago... time flies! And we absolutely loved Sri Lanka! Hoping to catch up with blogging eventually... Thanks for your comment Andrea :)

Thank you so much for your wonderful description of a Polish Christmas...
especially the food. My wife Linda is partly Polish...from Krakow...and she also makes some of the dishes. I love perogies, especially. I hope to see more posts from you on your life in New Zealand.

Polish Christmas
Thank you for reading Bob. Your wife has Polish roots? How about that! Nice to hear she's spoiling you with some of the Polish dishes. I hope to write more about New Zealand too.. Lots of blogs in my head, just need to find time to write them... Some day...

The city of dragons

I liked that one
Slovenia is a country I still haven't visited. But we like the Balkans a lot so we are likely to go there in the future. Funny sculpture you found there /Ake

Old and new - inside the Arena

I love Roman amphitheatres
I absolutely love Roman amphitheatres. I have seen Colosseum in Rome and the one in El Djem in Tunisia and a few more. I see from your photos that the one in Pula must be visited as well. /Ake

Thanks Dave and Merry Jo! I have no idea how people do it with twins, one is more than enough to keep you on your toes all the time ;) Pula was definitely a great find, totally recommend it!
