Everest Base Camp Trek Packing List and Shopping Guide | EBC Independent Trek 2019
Working out what to pack can be tough. Before we went on the EBC trek we looked at a lot of resources, I will link some below. In general we think we took the right amount of stuff with us and this is what has formed our Everest Base Camp Trek Packing List. We also bought and rented a few…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/07/04/everest-base-camp-trek-packing-list-and-shopping-guide-ebc-independent-trek-2019/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>

Below you will find a complete summary of our 14-day trip independent trek from Lukla to Everest Base Camp. The Everest Base Camp itinerary and accommodation list should give enough information of our journey to plan your own.

Complete Guide to Sri Lanka 2019| Where to Stay and where to go.
We couldn’t recommend the sights, sounds and flavours of Sri Lanka more. It is such a diverse country with cool, rainy hills in the centre, hot sunny beaches around the edges, a varied and vibrant capital city and even a scorching desert in the north (though we didn’t get there). Below is a complete guide to Sri Lanka 2019 with…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/06/20/complete-guide-to-sri-lanka-2019-where-to-stay-and-where-to-go/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Little Adam’s Peak | Sri Lanka Travel
Adam’s Peak (rather than Little Adam’s Peak) is a well known mountain in Sri Lanka, as it’s used as a pilgrimage site for Buddhists, Christians and Muslims alike (maybe others too). Due to a few reasons (Jenny’s blistered feet, my laziness, and a general lack of time) we decided to reject the 5,000 step climb. To make up for this…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/04/24/little-adams-peak-sri-lanka-travel/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Nine Arch Bridge, Cooking and terrifying night
Don’t walk down a train track in Sri Lanka in the pitch black, without a torch and without knowing how long it will take. That is our advice to you. And we suggest you take it. Nine Arch Bridge however is well worth the visit. Ella Rocks eating (Cooking) course Having passed on the very expensive (50 pounds each) cooking…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/04/23/nine-arch-bridge-cooking-and-terrifying-night/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
One day in Ella: train, massage, chill
Ella is the place to come in Sri Lanka if you are a backpacker looking for modern conveniences, western food and partying. We managed to also fit in some relaxation. Apology: we are really behind on these blogs, we have been super busy planning the next few months of our trip. Getting there The same way many journeys on this…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/04/22/one-day-in-ella-train-massage-chill/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Lipton’s Seat from Haputale: A walk through history
The original founder of Lipton tea, renowned for industrialising the marketing of tea, held Haputale and its surrounding hills in high esteem. Come to Lipton’s Seat and you can really see why.
