We took a visit to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth in Kandy. Said to contain the relic of the tooth of Buddha. Magnificent temple set in acres of land right in the middle of Kandy. Tooth ceremonies are held a few time a day, and the place is packed with tourists all trying to catch sight of a rotting tooth. We tried to view it but it felt like that scene from The Polar Express, where at the end the non believer is trying to catch a glimpse of Santa, but elves keep getting in the way. On a lighter note, The kids were mocking me for being made to wear a skirt to go in.

Hi we are small family unit of 4 who live in London.. until now! About a year ago, we decided that it would be wonderful if we could travel the world with our kids, and show them that the world is full of wonder and generally nice people. After very little conversation, we decided a date, and got to work planning! We intend to cover 15 countries (if we separate Hawaii) in 10 months starting in South Africa and ending up in Canada. This blog will document as much of our trip as possible, inc tips on world family travel we discover along the way. without spending the whole time in front of the laptop. Different from most of the travelling we have done before as it will involve educating the children. However, we are kind of hoping THE WORLD may take care of some bits for us. Hope you enjoy! we certainly will View all posts by RTJK
