    Don't tell the missus...

    I'm leaving Oman on the 10th, but decided not to head straight home.

    Instead, I'm going to Sri Lanka for a few days - never been before. I've booked a direct flight with Oman Air, and a hotel (well, it's a guesthouse really...), only 20 minutes drive from the beach, for a couple of nights. I'm gonna do nothing much. On the beach, a few beers, walk up and down the beach, a few more beers, eat something, and that's about it. Just for 2 or 3 days then I'll fly back to Bkk. I've told the missus I'll be home on the 15th or 16th (I didn't lie to her, but I was conservative with the truth, and I chose my words carefully).









    Negombo. Not the most exciting pace in the World, or even Sri Lanka, but better than Croydon...

    How do I post these pictures???

    That's a fair point; I'll doubless get rumbled, but a few relaxing days may well be worth it.







    Just like, nearly..., Thailand:



    &



    After 10 months in the desert, I'm looking forward to a bit of this:





    But none of this:



    I'll stick to the beer and beach walks!

    Actually, it's a very average beach by Sri Lankan standards, but 20 mins from the airport, relaxing for 2 days then hop on a plane back to the missus; it'll do...

    So why not just tell your wife that you need a few days of R&R on the way home?

    Doesn't sound like a great relationship then. Wouldn't it be better then her finding out later on though?

    To keep it really secret whatever you do, do not post your plan on a public forum on the Internet.

    Oh wait.....

    Talk about pussy-whipped. It's not like you're going to hook up with some tamal princess. She's probably pleased you didn't ask her to join you BB

    I used to shack up with a lovely local lass in Negombo. Course that was in 1978, so I reckon she'd be about late-50's now.

    If you really are just going to sit on the beach then lying about it is not worth the risk. Why would she mind you stopping for a bit of sight-seeing? If she sees your passport and sees you lied she will assume you were up to no good, then your protests of innocence will fall on deaf ears.











    So may as well get a legover while you are there!

    Stopping off at a sri lankan resort for a few days after a period of separation rather than returning dire tly home to be reunited with your wife will only be taken by her as a sleight.

    So either fly her out to join you there, possibly after youve been there for a couple of days on your own, or have your break as planned but make sure you cover your tracks and take all necessary steps to prevent her from finding out.

    A bit strange not having any pussy for 9 months, then wanting another 3 days of chokin' the chicken.
    Is it not Monsoon season in Sri Lanka during July ?

    It's a much better idea than lying (or just not telling her), but I've got to admit, I'd be disappointed if Mr NR had been away for a long time & wanted to go somewhere for R&R before coming home to be with me. I'd wonder if something was wrong with our relationship. Not a trust issue so much as a "why don't you want to be with me" one

    Just tell her the cheapest flights were through SL but a stopover is required. Even if she doesn't believe you and suspects you want to stop in SL it is better than lying about going there at all as you will forever have to be cagey about letting her look at your passport. Bit of a pain in the ass that would be and hardly worth the 2 day trip.

    There is a thread on here where a tourist got into trouble because his tattoo caused offence.

    I stayed in Negombo (2 weeks) for my 50th. Have to warn you that it's the GAY capital of Sri lanka but maybe you already knew that cause i didn't prior to my arrival.

    Great beach until the Tamils arrived resulting in a military take-over for 48 hours. Hotels guests being confined to the grounds.

    On a plus there are some great restaurants in the area and the locals are well friendly, especially if you are gay!

    I wouldn't recommend hiring a taxi as the drivers are crazier than the Thai's.

    Have a nice one.

    Aside from the beach, how does this differ from your usual routine, BB?

    I'd be disappointed in Mrs99 if, after 9 months of hard work, I wanted to stay a few nights on a stop over at a nice resort in Srilankan beach before returning to the BKK hustle. I mean it's been 9 months ffs what's a few more days. If she had an issue I'd tell her I have to visit my mia noi in sri lanka and stop being a drama queen. She'd probably be happy for me though and want to come. I think bringing her over would be a nice gesture but if she bitches and moans over a few days it's a bit high maintenance for my tastes.

    You should learn to give men space as to when they need it without question.

    Intentionally suppressing the truth is lying. Period. None of this new age ducking and diving to feel better.

    Enjoy your break, 20 minutes drive from the beach. Jesus, 20 min drive? What were you earning in Oman, camel dung?
