One of our great joys, and I believe I speak for all of us who contribute to TravelGumbo, is to help promote great little travel destinations that might be overlooked by many. This place is worth going out of your way to see. But I'm curious to where we go next on our road trip. Are we there yet? Huh? Are we there?

For those who want to know what lies ahead, rather than waiting to see where the road leads, just a bit of rooting around will answer the question.

Re: The Historic Fort and Town of Galle, Sri Lanka

DrFumblefinger ·
It's a great photoessay of a special place, Travellinn, thanks for sharing these wonderful photos with us. I generally just traveled through Galle, never stopping much except perhaps to look around for an hour or get something to eat. The fort is very impressive, a massive structure of rock and coral. The last time I visited Galle was just after the great tsunami of 2004. The town was one of the most damaged by that tragedy as several massive waves washed through it. Hundreds were killed or...

How did you discover Galle ? Did you read of its existence prior to your travels ? Or merely stumble upon it and get the urge to explore further. It appears to be untouched by tourism - or is it on the tourist itinerary ? After all these invaders what language do they speak now ? Good collection of photos - gives a real taste of this town.

Re: The Historic Fort and Town of Galle, Sri Lanka

Travellinn ·
DrFumblefinger, then you should absolutely spend some time in Galle next time you visit Sri Lanka! GarryRF, the plan was originally to go to Unawatuna (30 min away) staying there and doing a day trip to Galle. But after doing a little bit research online, we found out that Unawatuna would not fit us, and ended up doing the opposite. On our daytrip to Unawatuna we certainly got confirmed that staying in Galle was a much better option. See my thought about that on...

Jessica Meddows ·
This is a beautiful beach. Is it a daft question to ask if there are alligators around? I'm Australian, and our more northern beaches get huge crocodiles as well as sharks, so I'm not quite sure if the same goes for alligators in Florida!

Re: Fort De Soto Park, Florida – A Tropical Utopia

GutterPup ·
Hi Jessica! While it is not impossible, it is quite rare to see a gator at this beach, I only know of one time that a gator was ever spotted there, and that was only a 3.5 ft long one. It is much more likely that you'll see a shark before seeing a gator

Not sure, and not sure. We're on a working roadtrip in our 30 foot RV. Been in California for a month for work and will do another 4 weeks in Silicon Valley. Then we'll leisurely make our way back home to Toronto visa Washington, Oregon, and into Canada. So we don't set days or time limits on our travels - just to make meetings and the like!

Re: Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, Manitoba, Canada. One of the buildings inside the fort complex

When you know more specifics, I'll be happy to help you with itinerary. Generally speaking interesting things to see: 1) Forks Market. The brand new Canadian Museum of Human Rights might be open when you visit, which is in the Forks area. 2) Legislative Building 3) Winnipeg Art Gallery (largest collection of eskimo/Inuit carvings in the world) 4) Lower Fort Gary... And there are more, time allowing.
