And so the four intrepid travellers set off: at rush hour; through London; to take the tube to Heathrow; to board a ten hour flight to Colombo, Sri Lanka. It was a less than auspicious start: Otto threw a huge tantrum in the middle of a road near London Bridge, then threw up on the Piccadilly line. Jess saved her vomit until half an hour in to the four hour, 30°c taxi ride at the other end of the journey (Colombo to Bentota). Fortunately - only for the taxi driver- all over my jeans.
We eventually arrived at ZumDeutschen guest house, south of Bentota and just inland from the beach. It was bucketing down, monsoon style and a quick weather check confirmed it was raining in the whole of Sri Lanka for the next week at least. A slightly underwhelming arrival but things were soon to improve...
