Minks is back from the trip!

Minks is back from the trip!

I'm back folks!

I'll tell you all about it when Ive had the chance to get back to normal a bit - I'm a bit shell-shocked at the moment!

I am so glad that I did this trip - it's one of the most rewarding things I have ever done and I'm already planning on going back again next year.

Some of you will have heard that Sri Lanka decalred a state of emergency on Friday when the foreign minister was shot in Colombo.....I was near there when it happened, but didn't hear anything at all about it until I called home and Mr M told me about it!

The time I spent at the orphanage had really touched me - I'd love to be back there now.

I do, however, have to admit to being a bit of a pratt..........I took a naff photo on the first Friday and rather than delete it pressed the wrong thing and deleted all the photos I'd taken during the first week. I'm going to get copies of photos the rest of the team took, but I'm still miffed with myself about that as I had some fantastic photos that I'll never be able to recreate.

I'll post all about it when I've acclimatised a bit
