I too always enjoy visiting old fortresses, but never heard of "disappearing guns" until your travel blog. Thanks for the tip and I'm going to do some research on that technology.

WWII forts at sea could become luxury hotel

PHeymont ·
A series of seven forts built at sea to fend off a Nazi invasion have been proposed as a setting for a luxury hotel by a design firm trying to lure investment and a developer. The forts are off the coast near Whitstable, and can only be reached by sea or helicopter. The forts, called the Maunsell forts after their designer. have been out of service since 1956, and an eighth one in the group was removed as a shipping hazard. It appears that technically the forts are ownerless, but they are...

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.

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

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...

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

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...
