The Travel Bug

This blog is intended to be about the travels and life of Natalie aged 40 in, Marriage A Journey and a Dog. The people who are following are from self-help backgrounds and fellow travelers.

So this is a blog about the travel side of my life.

My husband is a retired clinical neurophysiologist. He is now Honorary Professor of Physiology in the Medical Faculty of the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. Sorry, that’s a bit of a mouthful. He is researching the effects of snake bites and organophosphate poisoning.

I have been teaching in a school in Kandy. We have 2000 girl pupils. It has been a great experience.  We have the privilege of sharing in the lives of people in a  poor village. We have been coming  here for 5 years, staying several months each time. There is so much about the communities spread out across the country to learn. The old and the new, rich and poor live side by side, so do the religions for now.

With the vegetation and climate comes birds, butterflies monkeys, pigs, elephants, porcupine, squirrels etc. Every time a house is built, and forestation removed, the numbers go down and the human numbers go up.

Mike Sedgwick (husband) is writing a blog on the Chandler’s Ford Today site, if you would like to know more, look it up. I’ve added some pictures, but there are lots more on Chandler’s Ford Today. You will find Mike’s picture of him in a glider.


Looks good, but a bit synthetic up close
