Snapshots of Sri Lanka – Travel Tales


A few months ago I was privileged to be asked to contribute to a travel book that was being compiled about Sri Lanka.

This book is special. The collection of stories have been put together to benefit the Samadhi Grove early childhood development centre in the village of Smagipura in southern Sri Lanka.    Sister Susila, an Australian buddhist nun has had a dream since she started visiting the country after the 2004 tsunami.  The land has been donated and money now needs to be raised to build the school.

So my friends and family if you are looking for a present, stocking filler, or just a good read, buy this book.  Join some of “Australia’s best known travel writers” (and me)  who have donated their work and as they explore and describe the joys of Sri Lanka

Susan Kurosawa explores the eccentricities of the island, John Borthwick pauses on the ‘siesta coast, Daniel Scott bikes it on the tour of his life.  There’s cricket, whales, surfing, elephants and a cast of wonderful characters to read about – and at 19.95  ( e book 14.95) Aussie dollars you  too can be part of a wonderful gift to the children of the village of Smagipura.

  1. Thank you Sue, not only for your contribution to the book, but for this wonderful plug – and to all your readers who have offered to Tweet, Facebook or otherwise share it! It all adds up, and orders are starting to come in already – so thank you all! We couldn’t have done it without the generosity of so many people.

  2. What a wonderful venture! And how wonderful that you were able to be a part of it.
    I will put this over to my Twitter and Facebook with hopes of giving it more PR and more sales to help make this a gigantic success.

  3. I haven’t heard of Sri Lanka for a very long time. Congratulations! It will be an interesting read just to at least have a glimpse of the country. Congratulations!

I wold love to hear your thoughts on this post.
